Here are the 9 biggest mistakes people make during House renovations.
1/ Overcapitalise on a property.
2/ Do not gain council approval before renovations proceed.
3/ Painting old masonry walls.
Painting old walls seals any damp inside walls.
4/ Build on boundaries without fire walls.
5/ Installing extensions where the original house is unstable structurally.
6/ Do not remove old original waste and stormwater pipes.
Steel waste pipes rust and it is quite common to not see them removed in wet area floor slabs by developers.
7/ Not removing older non PVC power cables which can cause electrical fires.
8 /Not strengthening old roof frames.
9/ Not taking stormwater out to the street.
