What are the first steps in home renovation?
Central New Jersey has a substantial marketplace of older homes that were built between 1960 and 1995. A building boom at the Jersey Shore has also seen existing home values rise rapidly, and thanks to the recent pandemic people are spending more time in their homes than ever before. With so much time spent at home working, entertaining and relaxing, people are upgrading the inside and outside of their homes like never before.
Home Renovation: Maximizing Resale Value
When setting budgets to renovate your existing home, people often start on the outside or exterior of the home. When renovating the entire outside of an older home, you might want to consider replacing the roof, gutters, siding, windows, and doors – this will maximize curb appeal and energy efficiencies.
Transforming your home from the ground up requires hiring a contractor who has experience in various areas and disciplines. Hiring a contractor who can show you the latest trends, colors, products, and warranty information is key to beautifying the exterior of your home.
Home Renovation Rundown
Making plans for a renovation starts with deciding what you can live with and what priority you will give to each section of the home you’d like to renovate. Larger renovations require hiring qualified contractors to do the work.
Here is the rundown homeowners should follow according to Houzz:
- Plan – Include a vision board for each area you’d like to renovate.
- Set a budget, and then try to stay within that budget. Give yourself some flexibility to cover cost overruns.
- Hire a licensed and insured contractor who has stellar reviews and who has been in business for many years.
- Talk to your insurance company, especially if the renovations will increase the home’s value.
- Secure permits – Making sure you have the proper permits will also protect you (the homeowner) when the inspection process happens, ensuring the work has been done according to code.
- Prepare for mess and noise – Renovations can be both messy and noisy! Disturbing your everyday life should be held to a minimum by hiring a reputable contractor who can perform the work quickly and efficiently.
