How to Prioritize Old Home Remodeling Needs
Are you ready to undergo a renovation on your home? Understanding the unique needs of your home is vital to a successful renovation and the first step that we recommend is to make a list of necessary repairs. What work needs to be done? This list will be an initial guide for your decision making process. Since each house is different you will need to create this list of repairs based on your home’s specific needs.
Turning this personalized list into a prioritized renovation plan will help direct the work at your home. We suggest that your historic renovation in Decatur begin with:
- Electrical: If your older home has electrical issues this should be the first priority on your list. Wiring problems can lead to fires or electrocution and may put your family at risk.
- Structural: Cracks, split beams, and rotted posts are all signs that there are structural issues in your home. These problems can quickly worsen, causing extensive damage that can be difficult to repair.
- Roofing and gutters: A failing roof and gutter system may cause water damage to your home. Ensuring the roof and gutters create a barrier against water, mold, and mildew is essential to a healthy home.
- HVAC equipment: Modernizing your home’s HVAC system is important for home comfort and energy efficiency. Choose models that curb energy consumption and are properly fitted to the size of your home.
