When it comes to planning home renovations work, creeping worry can easily go hand-in-hand with excitement. While any project can potentially end up causing problems, spending a little time planning before picking up the phone can not only reduce your stress levels but massively improve your satisfaction with the final build.
So, here are our three recommended things to think about before starting your renovations.
1. “How can I minimise interruptions?
Luckily, updating your conservatory or roof is a relatively light-touch procedure and will involve disruption to your schedule. This allows you to keep time spent away from work at a minimum and prevent or disruption to your schedule. While roof renovations will cause little mess, it is worth moving any delicate furniture or property out of the site to prevent accidental damage or soiling. If something is too heavy or difficult to lift, never do so yourself
or without the help of able-bodied individuals. If this proves to be a problem, contact the team coming in as they will often be able to provide coverage to protect furniture or trolleys to help move larger items to safety.
2. What are my present and future goals?
No changes should ever be made to your property that do not raise its resale value or provide maximum benefit to you and your family. But before you contact any professionals about your build, you should always take some time to assess what your future goals are and how a renovation can help achieve them. This can include addressing long-standing issues with the space such as managing extremes of temperature in the winter and summer months and allowing you to find a ‘liveable’ median. A refit can also correct structural issues such as leaks, drafts, or weakened panelling by installing a long-lasting roofing solution
. Or you can drive for energy efficiency by replacing older panes with new glass or polycarbonate panels
that can help save significant money on heating costs .
3. Am I working with a quality company?
When it comes to picking a reliable provider, your chosen team should enjoy a solid track record for delivery and comprehensive product catalogue. This can easily be done by taking some time to validate their work through online galleries
, review sites
, and their social media pages
. It is also extremely helpful to be put in touch with the team directly behind the build. This will allow you to quickly talk through any remaining concerns you may have and establish a rapport, something that can be extremely helpful when it comes to amicably resolving potential issues or queries after the project starts.
