Sometimes, all that you need to go from a house to your dream home is a little facelift. If you’ve owned your home for a while and are seeing a little wear and tear, or if you’ve purchased a house but it needs a lot of fixing, then renovation is your answer.


When they think renovation, most people think of the design aspect: changing up paint or furniture to make a space look different compared to before. While this is partly correct, renovation goes way deeper into the bones of your home. Through your renovation plan, you should be able to address any issues that may cause your home to be less than livable, such as structural or plumbing issues.

Undertaking a renovation is not as daunting as you think! There are, however, things to keep in mind when it comes to prioritizing which aspects or areas to fix first. Naturally, budget will be a factor when making these considerations, so spend your money on the most pressing needs first before moving on to the other stuff. Here’s a handy guide that you can follow to evaluate your urgent renovation needs.

The roof over your head. If your roof has faults, it is a must to address these. Leaving it for a later time may cause even more problems. Check for leaks that can cause water damage once the rainy season starts. Sealants can only do so much. Check the structural integrity of your roof, including the layers in it like insulation. You can ask a professional to check this for you since it would be a lot safer, and the output will be a lot better.

Safety implements. Anything that compromises your family's safety should be addressed immediately. Check that you have working alarms and locks. It is a good idea to check outlets as well; small children can be curious, and you wouldn't want exposed live wires anywhere near their hands.

While the starting point of any renovation is completely up to you, this is a good guide to help you evaluate your home and address the most urgent needs first. Don’t hesitate to seek help from a professional or contractor. Even if you have a budget, demand for quality products that will last you in the long run, saving you even more time, money, and headaches.
