3 Common Renovation Mistakes to Avoid



As each year passes, you and your family can outgrow the spaces in your home and find it necessary to refresh them with a few renovations. It is important to transform your spaces properly the first time around to help avoid costly or damaging mistakes.


Some renovations may be easier than others to complete, while others are best left for the professionals who have the knowledge and expertise to smoothly bring your vision to life.


3 Common Renovation Mistakes to Avoid

The fall season is quite a busy time for home renovators looking to spruce up their spaces for the holiday season’s events. With such a tight timeline, it is even more important to ensure your renovations are properly completed and that you avoid making common mistakes.

Navigating a smooth renovation can be extremely rewarding and also a bit stressful if you are going at it alone. The following are three common renovation mistakes that can easily be avoided.

#1: Not complimenting your home’s architectural style

This is especially true if you are building an addition to your home. While the additional build does not necessarily need to be the exact same architectural style, it should at least complement it. Doing so brings cohesion to your home and boosts the resale value of it, too.


#2: Forgoing function for aesthetics

While aesthetics are important, you should also take into consideration how you function and live in your home prior to renovating your spaces, from traffic patterns to window placements. It is also a great time to make upgrades or tackle any repairs, such as updating the substructure of your bathroom tile or replacing faulty pipes and wires.

#3: Not acquiring the proper permitting

You would not want to make renovations just to learn that you have to tear all of that hard work down. That is why one of the most important parts of renovating your home is acquiring the proper permitting. It also happens to be one of the many benefits of hiring a professional, experienced contractor (like our team at Ryan A. Jones & Associates) who is well versed in the permitting process and knows which permits are needed to get the job done right.
