Starting a home renovation in Perth, requires careful planning and preparation. According to experts at Australian Renovations Group (ARG), here are five crucial things you need to know before embarking on a home renovation project in Perth:

Scope and Design

Clearly define the scope of your renovation project. Having a clear idea of which areas of your home you want to renovate and which changes you want to make is the first step to a successful renovation. A well-defined scope and design plan might also help avoid confusion and limit potential changes during construction.

At ARG, once we’ve had a consultation, seen your home, and talked through the renovations you want, we draw up 3D images of the design concept. This allows you to visualise the scope and design of your renovation project. It also means that you can refine your design before any building starts.

Local Regulations and Permits

Before you begin any renovation, it’s essential to understand the local regulations and obtain the necessary permits.

Different types of renovations may require different permits from the local council. These could include building permits, planning approvals, and heritage permits if your property is in a heritage-listed area.

At ARG, we take care of the approvals process, so you don’t have to deal with that hassle.

Budget and Financing

Renovations can quickly become expensive, and costs can escalate if not managed well. Having a clear financial plan will help you stay on track throughout the project.

At ARG, we make managing the cost of your renovation simple. Once we’ve worked with you on final conceptual designs and finishes we prepare a fixed-price quotation for you. This quote is based on the decisions made in the design process, and will allow you the clarity you need around renovation costs.

Contractors and Professionals

Finding reliable and reputable contractors and professionals is crucial for the success of your renovation. Research and gather recommendations for builders. Interview potential contractors, check references, and review their previous work to ensure they align with your vision and can deliver quality results.

At ARG, we believe that the key to completing a successful home renovation is having a builder you can trust. We have more than 20 years of experience behind our name and pride ourselves in our excellent track record of outstanding builds.

Timeline and Disruption

Renovations can disrupt your daily life, so it’s important to have a realistic timeline for the project. Understand the potential impact on your living situation during the renovation – whether you’ll need to temporarily move out, how utilities will be managed, and how your routine might be affected.

At ARG we’ll collaborate closely with you to discover the timeline best suited to your specific circumstances. Our adaptability allows us to execute the project in phases or schedule construction to accommodate your daily routine. This means that you may be able to continue residing at home while the work is underway.

Remember that every renovation project is unique, and careful planning is the key to its success. Furthermore, choosing the right professionals to complete your renovation project will set you up for success.
