Renovating Older Homes

Older homes can be very challenging to renovate. Many have structural issues to address, either in the foundation or in floors and beams. Older homes often contain either lead or asbestos. Staircases are often very steep, and electrical wiring may not be to code. A quality remodeling firm can help you sift through each aspect of your particular home so that none of these problem areas come back to haunt you.

Home Renovation and Whole House Remodel Tips

  • Get professional help with planning and design. Many small to mid-size contractors fall short when it comes to good project planning and design.
  • Test for lead and asbestos. While it is tempting to ignore lead and asbestos to reduce renovation cost, you should at least do the testing so that you know where the materials are in your home. Then you can either avoid that area or use proper procedures to encapsulate or remove the materials. Both lead paint and asbestos can be harmful to the health of your family.
  • Use dust control and surface protection measures. A small amount of time and expense installing dust walls and floor protection will make a world of difference keeping your home in good condition throughout a renovation. Yes, some dust will get through, but the amount will be minimized and should be tolerable.
  • Insist on professional tradespeople. A jack-of-all-trades may say he can do whatever you need done, but a trade professional who performs the specific trade all day every day will usually do a much better job, and often at no additional cost. You may not be able to see the difference in quality between a jack-of-all-trades and a trade professional, but your friends will notice.
  • Develop a detailed scope of work. Bids for renovation work often give little detail as to what is included and what is not. This leads to and arguments with the contractor and often many change orders. A detailed Scope of Work should list the work of every trade so that you can refer back to it when questions arise.
