Getting to add an extra room to your house is every homeowner’s dream, but it can be a nightmare if you don’t get the builders involved. Adding an extra room is more than just throwing some walls up and hoping for the best. There are rules about the size of the addition, methods to ensure that it joins the house properly, and everything that needs to go inside. Just do yourself a favour and leave this one to the professionals. The last thing you need is for a wall to fall down.
If it involves electricity, you might want to phone someone who knows what they are doing. Something simple such as changing a bulb or popping a new fuse in a plug, you are probably going to be ok. However, if you don’t know anything about electricity, you should avoid changing light fixtures. Over time, the electrics in our home can need to be upgraded, especially as we continue to add more electric items. Make sure a professional can take a look at what is behind the walls when you are changing the electrics to ensure the system does not get overloaded.
One of the saddest facts that we have ever heard is that around half of the jobs that plumbers attend are due to people trying to fix something themselves. As simple as a job might seem, plumbing takes a certain touch to ensure that the pipes don’t leak. We don’t how they do it, it might be some sort of magic, but always get a plumber in to sort that leak that you think you can do yourself before you flood the kitchen.
Have you tried to get your walls nice and smooth? Using plaster is one of those things that you can do or can’t, there is no in-between. If you struggle with plastering walls, then ceilings will be impossible. The last thing you need is a lumpy ceiling after putting all of the efforts into making your room look good. If you have a small patch to fix, you might be ok doing it by yourself, however, a full room is something else to deal with.
