Mistakes to Avoid When Renovating Your Bathroom

16 Jan 2020 Custom Building

Getting to know some of the most common mistakes to avoid when renovating your bathroom will help ensure that you hire the best team for the job. At Alderidge Construction, they know that bathroom renovations can be time consuming and expensive, especially when you try to do the renovation on your own. That is why they offer a range of custom home services that are designed to make your renovation project as quick and painless as possible.

1. Poor Ventilation

Without proper ventilation, humidity will get trapped in your bathroom, creating the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow and for paint, grout, and metal to deteriorate. Before starting any renovation work, a professional will take the time to seal off the ventilation to prevent any contaminants from entering vent.

2. Improper Spacing

If you are looking to have your entire bathroom renovated, it is important to hire a custom home building team that has a drafting technician on staff to assess the scope of work for your renovation project. Since major bathroom renovations can often result in load bearing walls being moved or plumbing fixtures being added or moved, the drafting technician will need to submit full architectural plans to the city before any work can be completed.

3. Choosing the Wrong Materials

One of the most important elements of renovating a bathroom is choosing materials that are specifically designed for the bathroom. When choosing materials for your bathroom, it is always a good idea to speak to a professional home builder to find out what options will work best. Doing so can help prevent you from accidentally selecting materials that will not stand up to the environment.

4. Not Setting a Realistic Budget

Since setting a realistic budget can be almost impossible for you to gauge on your own, it is important to first speak to a professional about the different factors that could affect your budget. A professional home builder will be able to anticipate any potential pre-existing problems behind the walls and will understand how to best budget for different materials and labour costs.

5. Overlooking Small Mistakes

While some small mistakes might seem minor to start with, the smallest errors may eventually turn into eyesores down the road. As your renovation progresses, make sure to let your custom home builder know if you see any trouble areas that will bother you in the future.
