DO NOT FORGET TO REMEMBER YOUR HOME RENOVATION
When you are renovating your home, it is not something you want to do. Making mistakes can be frustrating, costly, and time-consuming. This list contains mistakes you should avoid when doing house recladding in Auckland.
DO NOT SKIP THE PERMITS
You will need permits to remodel your kitchen or bathroom. The requirements for these permits will vary depending on where you live. But you must get them. Permits are necessary to ensure that your home meets a minimum level of quality.
DON’T MEASURE ONCE
This is a common truth, but we sometimes get impatient and just hope for the best. It will save you time, money, stress, and effort if your measurements are accurate. Why would you not do this? Measure twice, cut once.
DON’T LEAVE WIRES EXPOSED
Although it is not often you will see wires sticking out of a wall, renovation laziness and poor work standards can allow wires to be left exposed in walls believing they are secure and safe. You must cover wires in walls because of weather, bugs and fire hazards, as well as any other potential dangers to your wiring.
DON’T LEAVE YOUR OLD FLOOR DOWN
It will be worth the extra time and cost to remove your old floor in order to properly lay down your new one. These shortcuts will almost always lead to uneven floors and the possibility of the old floor lifting off the floor. You’ll eventually have to tear everything apart and do it right.
DON’T USE STANDARD OUTLETS IN YOUR BATHROOM
Your outlets cannot be wall-mounted, standard bedroom outlets in the bathroom or near water. They must have a ground fault circuit interrupter that allows electricity to be cut off if the plug lands in water. When it comes to electricity, don’t compromise safety.
