How or where to start the remodeling of an old house?

Remodeling an old house requires a significant outlay of money, so it is essential to know how to approach the entire process from start to finish step by step, what to renovate in each environment, how to do it, and what to take into account when rebuilding an old house.

You have to have several things already known before starting to spend money, such as whether you want to build upstairs or knowing if you can build a second floor in the house, among other things.

How or where to start the remodeling of an old house?

If you are about to buy a house with the certainty that it needs to be remodeled, or if you are simply going to rebuild your house, the first thing is to make a diagnosis of the general condition of the house before anything else.

You have to inspect everything as much as possible, ceilings, walls, humidity. Although there are things that cannot be known until it is broken or opened, such as the state of the foundations or the facilities, for example.

Likewise, in an old house, it must be taken into account that the installations must be 100% renovated with hot and cold water, drains, gas and electricity.

The project and design of the reconstruction of an old house:

The second thing is to think about developing a project and a design, with this we will have even more certainty and control of exactly what we are going to do. Are we going to leave the walls and environments as they are? Are we going to unite environments? Are we going to separate environments without walls? Are we going to expand square meters beyond the original house?

All this is contemplated in a project and it is very important to do it to optimize expenses. The architect is the right person to go through the entire process and reach a satisfactory result.

A professional is trained to carry out all the steps, from making the diagnosis to knowing how to act, preparing the project and design based on the client's requirements, to starting the remodeling.

Suggested steps to rebuild an old house:

Here are some quick steps to proceed to remodel an old home:

1. Contact and hire an Architect:

To make a diagnosis of the general condition of the house and based on that and the owner's claims, develop a design project and an action plan.

2. Find and compare quotes:

Of labor and materials. The more information we have on hand to budget the less additional we will have during the rebuilding process.

3. Contact labor:

With budgets in hand, decide and hire first the construction mason and then the plumber, electrician, gas-fitter, roofer, painters, etc.

4. Begin the remodel:

We already have the project and the hired mason only has to coordinate the start of the work. Once the work is completed, the end of the work must be requested, in this way it is certified before the regulatory entities that said work is closed. offer the CHEAPEST Direct Renovation Electrical Contractor Services (Singapore - HDB, Condo, Landed, Commercials)
