What Is A Renovation Builder Brisbane?
The term ‘renovation’ refers to the process of returning an item to a good state of repair. This can be as small as a toy or piece of furniture, to an entire building or home. In the construction industry, renovation refers to the process of improving or modernising an old, damaged or defective building. This is the opposite to ‘retrofitting’ which is providing something with a component or feature not originally fitted. There is also ‘refurbishment’ which is a process of improvement by cleaning, decorating, or re-equipping. A renovation builder Brisbane is a person who does the design and structural renovation of an existing house or building.
According to Approved Document L of the building regulations, ‘major renovation’ means ‘…the renovation of a building where more than 25% of the surface area of the building envelope undergoes renovation’.
It is common for people to purchase run-down or delapidated properties, often houses, and renovate them as a means of increasing their value. Typically, renovation work is categorised as ‘cosmetic’ or ‘structural’.
Structural renovation includes things like:
- Roof cavity conversions
- Construction of a basement
- Redesign of floor plans
- Re-wiring, re-plumbing, re-stumping
Cosmetic renovations include:
- Painting and other forms of decoration and minor repairs.
- Updating fixtures and fittings.
- Light landscaping
