Planning a home alteration?
Some advice to reflect on, before starting on any building alterations.
The design stage.
The design stage of the project is the first step in any home extension plan.
Each home extension requires a custom plan which can be done by using the help of an expert draughtsperson, a building designer or an architect.
By law, homeowners must ensure that any new building or renovation plans for their property has been approved by the local authorities.
Whether you need to build a brand new wall around the property, add a room or an extra level, it is important to liaise with the planning department of your local municipality. Before proceeding make sure that you have all the necessary permissions.
Purpose of your home extension.
Clarity on what you want to achieve with your home extension is important.
It will assist you to create a detailed brief, so that you can prevent overspending on unnecessary space and items.
Impact on neighbors.
Dependent on your location and municipal bylaws, a neighbor is at liberty to object against your home extension. Find out what the policy in your local municipality is.
What are the costs involved?
It is important to remember that renovations will require the involvement of several tradespeople to finish your project.
This could include carpenters, plaster experts and painters. Depending on the rooms affected, you may need to enlist the assistance of electricians, plumbers and tilers as well.
How do I find a building contractor?
Finding the right building contractor is one of, if not the most important factor to consider in a home renovation project.
It is crucial to appoint a builder who is registered with a professional, reputable organization.
In South Africa, there are two primary building bodies, the Master Builders Association South Africa (MBSA) and National Home Builders Registration Council (NHBRC).
UCP Home Renovations only use registered builders.
