What Does the Term ‘renovations’ Cover?
Renovation is sometimes known as remodeling. Whatever you call it, it is the process of improving or fixing a broken or outdated structure. Most people decide to renovate their house to improve the appearance or feel of the place. Some renovate to improve the saleability and value of the property. However, sometimes it is also necessary to renovate from a safety or structural point of view.
Some people repaint a room, change the window coverings and floor coverings and call that renovating. And so it is! And we recommend that unless you have extensive prior experience or technical qualifications or skills in a trade, you engage qualified professionals to carry out larger scale renovations.
There are several important reasons for this.
How Big Can Renovations Get and Can I Do It Myself?
Renovations can vary in size, from small fixer-upper projects to large structural changes. It may seem tempting to take on renovations on your own. However, it’s advisable to speak to a qualified and licensed builder before you begin your DIY renovation journey.
Believe it or not, some service providers will undertake renovations that require a builders license, when they don’t actually have one. Therefore, it’s important to be aware of the requirements of the work you want to undertake. You may like to visit the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) for guidance.
Our experienced team at Fraederich Homes will be able to advise you and assist with helpful information. We don’t mind how big or small your job is. We can even guide you through what to expect during your renovation process. We’ll help you make the tough decisions by discussing with you what you’ll need to know.
What Are The Challenges in Doing Your Own Renovations?
It may seem tempting to take on a DIY project in your home to save money. It may even seem like fun! However, there are a number of disadvantages with this approach.
Firstly, there are qualifications to consider. One of the main disadvantages is that the person undertaking the renovations may not be qualified to perform certain tasks. Qualified builders have years of training and experience behind them. As a result they know the in and outs of safety protocols. By performing the renovations without hiring a professional, you are potentially undertaking risky activities. Don’t endanger yourself or your family with decisions that may not be based on sufficient information.
Another downside is potentially not knowing the specific laws and legislation that apply to building in Queensland. This could easily lead to your property not meeting building standards. This can result in fines or lawsuits and can lead to more money being spent. Especially relevant is when it comest to selling your property. If it does not meet building standards or is not appropriately approved, it may lose you the sale. Hiring a qualified builder removes the risk. Professional builders keep up to date with building codes and will be able to make sure your renovated house complies with all of the legislation and that your finished product is legal.
Finally, one of the downsides to doing your own renovations is the potential for it to run significantly longer than expected. Making time to finish renovations can be time consuming and exhausting. Often renovations take significantly longer than they should because people simply don’t have the time or energy to finish.
Have you ever seen that half-finished renovation that has been sitting so long that it needs to be started again?

Small projects, such as painting, tiling for example, can be easily undertaken yourself. This is especially so if you have the right experience and know what you’re doing. However, in the case of an emergency or something unexpectedly going pear-shaped, having a professional take care of the job can be beneficial to you and avoid any unnecessary costs and delays. Put simply, hiring a professional tradesperson to do your renovations can eliminate the stress that might arise.
