Skimping out on the essentials during a renovation can lead to various hazards and inconveniences. Structural issues can cause a whole host of safety issues like collapsing walls, ceilings, or floors while electrical problems can lead to fire hazards and raise the risk of electrocution and shock. Ignored plumbing issues, meanwhile, can result in leaks, mold growth, and other problems caused by water damage while inadequate mechanical systems can affect things like indoor air quality and uneven temperature in the house.
Cutting corners when it comes to these issues poses a serious risk to the safety and well-being of the home’s occupants and visitors. It can also lead to fines, penalties, or added costs due to the maintenance and repairs that will be needed down the line. You might even have to restart the entire renovation project over again. Improper structural work can also reduce the overall value of the property because there will be red flags during inspections and assessments.
