9 Biggest mistakes people make during House renovations.

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.
