Top Ten Considerations When Remodeling a House

29 Aug

one Don't try to knock it all out at once - Over these tough financial times,  more then ever it is important to get every task piece by piece. I know it is  hard to not immediately jump in and remodel but you can save money as well as  feel more accomplishment remodeling one room at a time. Focus on the master  bathroom first, and then move to the kitchen, after that next to the guest  bathroom. Give your self a couple months for every project, have fun, and feel  the sense of accomplishment whenever each room is finished. By doing this you  can tackle the whole home without tackling your pocket book and sanity.

2  . Parents if you need it - Lets face it, we all not necessarily the best at  fixing things. Some of us have a natural knack for it, but I know there are days  when the instruction manual appears like it was in a different language. These  are the days when you need to request professional help. Call a plumber to fix  that shower you already been trying to get to work; however , don't be afraid to  jump along with questions and comments regarding the work and placement since  that is why you are paying them. Remember the internet can continually be a  valuable place to find Buying Guides, How to Guides, How you can Videos, and  general Learning Center content for installs and remodels.

3. Rough in  Valves - A lot of people forget to think about the rough in valve (the piece  which connects your trim to your plumbing) and purchase a beautiful brand new  trim for their shower only to realize it will not fit the actual valve they  have. If the valve doesn't fit then you ordinarily have to open the wall and cut  the valve in order to solder a new one on. This is very time consuming and  costly, therefore it is better to just select a trim that works with the valve  words installed then spend 500 dollars to realize it will not  function.

4. Efficiency is key to saving money - Within the last 10 years  the push to "go green" has been very popular in the usa, however many people  don't realize that going green has many other advantages such as saving lots of  money in the long run, while also helping the surroundings.

5.  Measurements - I don't know how many times We have helped customers that need to  returns items because they considered that a shower door that is 58 ½" will  easily fit in a spot that is 57 1/2" max. The same goes for tap configurations.  If the faucet holes are around 5" on middle then they will not condense to 4"  centers, you would have to consider a faucet that has an adjustable spread so  you can make it suit whatever holes you currently have. When remodeling a home  probably the most important things you can realize is that measurements need to  be precise, this can save you a lot of headache, not to mention returns, and  will help you make probably the most of your time.

6. Don't forget the  accessories - Many items require additional items for a full installation.  Forgetting these types of additional items can lead to faulty products and  unfinished work. Beneath is a list of products that normally require additional  products for installation.
a. Bathroom Faucets - Require a deplete, if the  faucet does not come with one.
b. Bathroom Basins - Require a p trap to go  from the drain towards the plumbing.
c. Shower Trim - Require a rough within  valve to connect to the plumbing.
d. Tankless Water Heaters : If they are gas  units they require venting.

7. Consider The Positioning - New ceiling fan  and light combos can be gorgeous, but if you don't consider the installation and  the amount of light it is going to give off, then you could finish installing a  light only to realize keep in mind that completely light up the room. The same  goes for other accessories. Cleaning soap dispensers, tooth brush holders, and  towel racks almost all require consideration as there is a good chance that  wherever they are in stalled now is where they will be sitting for a long  period, so make sure it is exactly where you want.

8. Take Your Time  rapid Don't just decide you want to remodel the house then instantly buy all of  the items for it. Consider what features you want along with the finish you  want, then wait for a little while and make sure that is nevertheless the finish  you want! So many times people decide on one thing then change and go with  something else once everything is purchased. You will lay aside yourself a lot  of headache if you just make sure the items you are going to buy are the ones  you are going to want for years to come. Besides, elaborate an extra day in  putting off that bathroom remodel to ensure you get it right!

9.  Creativity is Key - During the past it was custom to select a normal faucet and  a normal kitchen sink or shower. However , innovation is the key in modern  domestic plumbing so think outside the box and consider something you may not  have considered prior to. This can help you build a beautiful room without even  costing a lot extra. Some things to consider would be: a vessel sink, the wall  mount faucet, a rain drop shower mind, a faucet with a pull out spout, or my  personal favorite Delta's new touch2O touch sensor kitchen faucet. Adding a  product you might not have considered before can add flare to your new space and  leave your friends wondering where you were able to find something similar to  that.

10. Consider Resale Value - Are you setting up features that people  want, or when you leave the house will they would like to take it out. A friend  of mine has a big house but plenty of family is currently living in it. He was  looking for a place to place an office since all of the rooms were taken and  chose to install it in the walk in closet of his bedroom while there was no  where else for it to go. Now whilst that is the perfect solution for him, you  have to assume that the following person that buys the house will not want to  have an office in their stroll inside the street and you|stroll through} closet.  This investment will not be great for the resale associated with the house as  the owner may have to take it out again before installed it on the market. This  is not the same for remodeling a new restroom or installing a tankless water  heater, as these items usually raise the resale value of the house.
