Did you know that May is National Home Improvement Month? It is a great time of year to make those much needed improvements you’ve been putting off and finally get the remodel you’ve always wanted. But if you’re looking into home renovations, don’t forget to plan your remodeling project in accordance to what will be looked at during a home inspection.
From larger projects, like a home addition, to smaller projects, like remodeling a small half bathroom, home improvements have a direct impact on the value of your home. And if you eventually sell your home, the potential buyer is going to want a home inspection. So what should you keep in mind when planning your remodeling project to help ensure your home will do well in a home inspection? We are a home inspection service in St Paul, and we have a few suggestions on what to keep in mind while making home improvements.
Electrical & Plumbing Work
Make sure these very important tasks are performed by licensed professionals. While you may be tempted to try to install or fix electrical and/or plumbing yourself, they should really be done by someone with plenty of training and experience. A home inspection service will definitely see and make note of any major plumbing and electrical issues, and this could also affect your ability to sell your home. A licensed professional will know how to do the work safely and correctly and will make sure everything is up to code.
Make sure that all of the building materials used are of high quality. While the idea of saving a few bucks here and there may be tempting, you do not want to cut corners when it comes to your building materials. A home inspection service like ours will make note if the materials used are of low quality, and that could affect the final outcome of your home inspection service report and the potential buyer’s final decision.
Make Your Measurements Count
Depending on the type of work that is being done, wrong or inaccurate measurements could affect the structural integrity of your home. Inaccurate measurements will show in what the final product looks like. Professional remodelers know how to take accurate measurements and how to do the work properly. Enlist the help of professionals if you are unsure of how to do any of the work yourself.
