Is there a major home project you have been putting off, that you no longer can ignore? If so, here are a few valuable tips for you…

Use the right people for the job
When it comes to  house renovations Newcastle, that too major ones, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. You might feel that you are saving by opting for a cheaper renovator or constructor, but if he/she or the team messes up, you will end up paying more than you intended to. Always use professional help; that too those who you have used previously, or at least those who come recommended through a trusted friend. Take out word for this, you will not regret your caution.

Have a budget, try hard to stick to it
When it is about renovations of your home, regardless to whether it is big or small projects, it is vital that you make a working budget. Ask around and get a rough quotation, then settle into a budget. Make sure you are ready for this expense (and then some) before you embark on this project. Try your best to stick to the budget, and complete it before pursuing new/side home projectsno matter how tempting it is.

Move out the delicates; including your family
It’s no secret that valuables go missing during major projects as such; and delicates are inevitably damaged. Instead of blaming those who enter your home, and regretting it later on, take precaution actions to prevent it from happening. Select a room furthest from the “action” and use it as a store room for your precious or delicate furniture and other valuables. Make sure to cover it up, even if it’s in a sealed room. Make sure not to enter the room until all the dust from the rest of the house has been cleaned and cleared off. If you have a family member who suffers from asthma or is allergic to dust mites, then it’s best if you can move them out until the project is completed.

Have a working plan for cleaning up after
Apart from the costs, one of the biggest reasons for people hating getting into renovating projects is the mess. Even if your project is only targeting one part of your home, the rest of your home too will get affected. Minimize the damage by containing the dust; use plastic dust walls around the construction area. Use separate entrances and exits to the area; preferably away from the house. Make a day end clean up routine; and if possible use a professional cleaning service to help you clean at the end of it all. Remember that walls can hold on to the dust as well…!
