DIY House Makeover: Steps To Follow
Doing your renovation yourself is profitable when you want to save money on work. A professional necessarily generates additional costs that you can do without, provided you know the DIY. First of all, you must realize the work to be done, and not only in appearance.
Make a complete check-up of the items to review, time, money and knowledge that this represents.
Once all this is on paper, do you feel able to embark on the adventure, knowing that there will be no one to take your back and that you will have to comply with standards and safety rules? Think about it all.
Prepare and delegate as needed
Take back your previously designed list of work and ask yourself what do you need to complete the renovation.
- Learn about building standards, materials to use.
- Order everything you will need (make estimates beforehand), whether material or tools. If necessary, you can undertake to rent the items that will only be used once (drill, scaffolding …). For me, I would buy the tools within my budget, such as a cordless drill under $100.
- If you decide to change wall colors you can use an electric paint spray gun for saving time and effort.
- Taking into account the size of the site and even if you know the different worlds at your fingertips, you will be asked to delegate certain tasks. You will soon realize that taking care of everything over a fairly short period of time is a difficult exercise.
Unless you have complete confidence in the equipment (which is sometimes expensive and must be handled with care), expert help is essential.
Start the job!
In each part that you are working on, do not hesitate to get advice from professionals and to use the guides provided for this purpose. Remember, it’s better to go to a company than to find yourself in an uncomfortable situation.
