Restoring a property might seem like a huge challenge and while the specifics can get quite technical, the overall process is actually quite simple. From the initial examination to the final stages of work, there are experts who can help you through the process, keeping your project on track.
That being said, it’s good to understand the basics at play here, which is why today we’ll be going through the timeline of a property restoration and what you can expect.
All property restoration has to begin with assessing the extent of the damage. This can be anything from painting a few walls and replacing a few carpets to remodelling and rebuilding whole sections of the property.
Now, it’s worth saying here that if you’re planning to purchase a property with the intent to restore it then you should have a good idea of how much you intend to spend before purchasing. That means knowing what work will need to be done and, preferably, over budgeting by around 20%. In order to do this you should speak to the appropriate property restoration contractors and get good estimates on how much the work is going to cost.
Even once you’ve got past your initial estimations, you’ll need a good plan about how you intend to get your project underway. For this, you should consult with any contractors you need, work out which work will need to be done first, and start making some more finalised decisions. It’s important to note that this is the stage where you’ll want to do most of your research to find out what will be a good solution to problems in the long run.
Last but certainly not least comes the actual property restoration itself. This stage can take anywhere from months to years but is also where the real work happens. This is where that timeline you made will come in most handy and where all that careful planning will help to ensure that the work stays within budget.
Property restoration can involve any number of jobs from large changes – such as replacing flooring or drains, or rewiring electrics – to the final touches of decoration, such as painting walls and fitting carpets. And it’s for this reason that it’s good to hire contractors who can handle a wide range of work.
While you absolutely want people with expertise in each field, it also helps to have contractors on hand whom you can trust and who have a good knowledge of the rest of the build. That’s why hiring experienced property renovators could save you lots of time and money in the long run.
