How to properly prepare your renovation work?
As with all projects, to avoid unpleasant surprises, it is essential to be well prepared and to anticipate the nature and scope of the work as well as any difficulties. Here are some steps to follow before starting the renovation project.
Step 1: Know the characteristics of the accommodation to prioritize:
If you are buying an old home to renovate it, it is important that you know precisely its different characteristics so that you can prioritize and assess the amount of work required. For example, you need to request an energy balance to get an overview of the performance of equipment, the quality of materials, the state of ventilation, and insulation in particular.
Step 2: List the necessary work in the house:
While it may sound simple, the reality is more complex than you might imagine. Indeed, depending on the state of your house (or your apartment) and what you want to achieve, it will be necessary to establish a room-by-room diagnosis of the necessary operations. Also make sure to prioritize them, from the most important to the least.
Step 3: Have a plan of the house and its land:
Do not start renovations without first having had a detailed plan of the house or apartment and its grounds, if you have one. If you don't have one, ask for it to be done by a professional.
Step 4: Prioritize positions:
After having obtained all the necessary information, you can project yourself into the details of your renovation works and their planning. Based on your needs, you can then select and interview the different trades required for the site.
Step 5: Define your budget:
If the price of renovating a house or an apartment can quickly soar given your ambitions and the state of the original construction, there is room for maneuver, depending on the choice of materials or professionals mobilized. To manage your finances as well as possible, you should set your priorities and prioritize operations.
Step 6: Choose your materials:
The choice of materials depends not only on your budget but also on the original construction and its specific characteristics. The materials chosen must be compatible with the nature of the frame, at the risk of generating subsequent pathologies.
Step 7: Decide on self-renovation or call in professionals:
When renovating, it can be tempting to undertake to do it yourself. However, calling on a professional remains recommended because his intervention guarantees you quality work carried out according to the standards in force, and guaranteed overtime thanks to the two-year and ten-year guarantees.
If you want to invest in your home renovation (and you are not an experienced handyman), prefer decoration (painting, sanding parquet, wallpaper ...), without consequences on the health of your house.
Step 9: Think about your accommodation during the work:
In the context of large-scale renovation work, it is better not to be around, the work necessarily generating its share of daily nuisances... Also, try to find alternative accommodation for the duration of the work so as not to experience discomfort.
