Home Renovation. Monday , October 08th , 2018 - 04:13:43 AM
Actually, home renovation will not burn a very big hole in a homeowner's pocket as long as one knows how to estimate the cost of the project. Having a good understanding of the factors that may affect the renovation costs will help a homeowner in planning the whole renovation process so it will fit hisher budget. The size of the house that needs to be renovated should be taken into consideration. The bigger the house, the higher the costs. On the other hand, there are instances wherein not the whole house but only parts of it (perhaps the kitchen or the living room) are the only ones that need the renovation. In either case, whether the whole house must have the makeover or just a particular room, the size or the area (usually in square footage) that needs the work must be taken into consideration in calculating the cost.
So how does the average homeowner know if there are maintenance renovations that require attention? There are a few ways to find out, and sticking your head in the sand is not an option. That would be akin to not going for a regular check-up at the doctor or dentist - if no-one tells you there's a problem, then there is no problem, right? Wrong. The first thing to do is to call upon your gut instinct. You probably have a suspicion if the electrics might be an issue (there's a spark when you plug appliances in, for example), or if there's damp in the basement, or if the attic insulation is insufficient; after all, you're the one who lives there. Take a look around the outside of the house for any signs of worsening damage - are cracks bigger than you remember them? Does the roof look patchy? Do you have an effective water management system - one that drains run-off water away from the house foundations?
Self-Financing - This option makes sense for smaller projects. It is also a feasible option for do-it-yourselfers on a pay-as-you-go (or pay-as-you-build) plan. Credit Cards - Charging large expenses to a credit card is an option, but not necessarily a good one. With their higher interest rates, credit cards have limited value in home renovation projects, and can be damaging to your financial health if there are unexpected cost overruns. (A do-it-yourself installation of a tub surround in your bathroom can turn expensive if your plumbing skills are not as honed as you would have liked them to be and you notice water dripping through your living room ceiling!)
