Renovating a condo is a very different process than renovating a detached home or even an apartment. And although most condos have homeowner’s associations that can limit some changes, a condo is different from an apartment, and it’s owned by you. This means that there are a lot of freedoms when it comes to updating it.
Here at Ascension General Contractors, we are giving you all of the things you should know when it comes to condominium renovations.
Consult Your Homeowner’s Association
Before you start making too many plans for your condo renovation, it’s important to know what rules and regulations there may be surrounding any updates you want to make. This will save time from any issues or conflicts you might run into in the future.
Know Your Limitations
Be sure to identify any common elements in your condo that cannot be changed, such as the windows or front doors. Every condo is different on what limitations there are when upgrading, but your homeowner’s association or condo board should be able to provide a basic guideline for you so you can make plans accordingly.
Consider Adding Storage
One of the biggest issues when it comes to a condo is the lack of space. Creating more storage space can be an important added feature to your condo and one that results in great ROI.
Find a Contractor Who Works on Condos
When looking for a general contractor to work on your condo renovation, you’ll want to ask if they work on condos. A condo is more logistically challenging and finding a contractor who is familiar with working in a condo building is an important part of making sure the project goes smoothly.
