Before renovating, it is important to assess the condition of your home to determine if there are any significant underlying problems that must be addressed before or during your planned renovation project. Once you have assessed your home’s needs we can plan out the renovation project.

A house is much more than just four walls and a roof — it’s an interactive system made up of many components including the basic structure, heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, the external environment and the occupants. Each component influences the performance of the entire system. A renovation provides an opportunity to improve how your house performs.

As you assess your renovation project, ask yourself how changing particular components will affect the performance of the whole house. For example, as part of a bathroom renovation you may want to add a hot tub that will generate large amounts of humidity during operation. Your existing ventilation may be inadequate to handle the increased moisture levels. It will be important to provide proper ventilation to avoid mold growth, indoor air quality (IAQ) problems and damage to the structure or finishes. You may need to consult with a qualified home inspector or a professional renovator.

If you are planning any major renovations, please go to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation website for more detailed information and take a look on some of the questions to ask before you start your renovation project.
