Once you’ve fully planned your home renovation and obtained the necessary permits, the next step is to ensure the home is structurally sound. There are several components of this step, as detailed in this article.
- Begin with ensuring the foundation is secure.
- Repair any weakened walls, joists, and carrying beams
- Moving outside, repair or replace the roof, any heavily damaged windows, and damaged siding that allows water to get through it.
- If demolition is necessary, it’s helpful to rent a dumpster and essential to use caution if lead paint is present.
