Before building your new home, here are several tips
Buying or building a new private home is a priority for every individual in our society, and because of its importance to individuals and families, you must consider several factors before building your own home.
Before proceeding with the design of the house, you must determine everything related to the appearance of the house, its size and the shape of the design that matches your taste. This design should be a clear reflection of the family’s vision and requirements within the established budget, such as rooms’ areas and the space occupied by the rest of the house. For example, to reduce the cost of construction, it is advised to reduce the area of corridors inside the house. To reduce the high cost of plumbing supplies, you should design the kitchen and the bathroom adjacent to each other or one above the other.
An experienced contractor
Some may choose an inexperienced contractor because the cost of his services is low, which of course will affect the quality of building the house. Ask your friends or acquaintances or search for contractors who have built perfect homes, while adhering to the delivery dates and budget already established for the construction process, being on the construction site during the implementation of each stage to supervise and maintain the system on the site, as well as using the best materials used in construction; And within the budget.
Be sure to hire a reputable contractor; there are many contractors who use other subcontractors to manage the project in their absence, so take care.
On the other hand, hiring an unknown contractor or the one who offers his services for less amount of money compared to well-known contractors or one who is known to implement good projects may lead to a waiver of the quality of the construction, and then damages in the future.
Relying on a specialized engineer to supervise the construction stages
When building a new house, the presence of the engineer on the construction site is indispensable to ensure that each stage is fully implemented according to the correct standards, especially in the concrete structure and finishing phases, otherwise, the condition of the building and its suitability for housing will be damaged over time.
The engineer also oversees the correct implementation of the previously designed design as a future vision of what the house will look like in the final stages.
Choose high-quality building materials
The use of poor building materials that are not subject to the required specifications leads to huge losses during the implementation of architectural projects. In fact, reliance on these cheap materials may cause the collapse of the buildings or you will have to pay additional costs in the future due to the damage it has caused to the construction.
The purchase of high-quality building materials reflects on the durability of the building, and it pays off over many years, thus ensuring a special home for your family characterized by high-quality design, construction and implementation for you and for future generations of your family.
Make sure to choose the best electric tools
Remember that the house is built for you and your family, and you, of course, do not want to buy unauthorized or unknown electrical appliances; therefore, they may not be safe for you and your family. To choose the best electrical tools, rely on well-known brands that are subject to the declared quality and safety standards.
Rely on good efficient electrical appliances and modern LED lighting
With the growing global trend towards rationalizing energy use, the need for electrical devices on the market to consume less electricity has emerged, so it is advisable to be careful while purchasing electrical appliances, such as air conditioners, to rationalize electricity consumption and reduce bills. And within the framework of rationalizing consumption, LED lighting fixtures appeared that live longer and consume less energy.
No need to build many walls inside the house
We have previously mentioned the importance of having a smart design that exploits spaces in an effective and practical way, and in this context, it is advised to build a small number of walls inside the house because many walls lead to the presence of many corridors, which is a waste of the home space.
The presence of multiple ventilation sources at home
For your and your family’s health, make sure to have good ventilation inside the house, such as balconies and windows, to renew the air.
Choose the right colors for the facades and walls
The facades of the house should be painted in consistent colors that are not harmful to the eye, to ensure the aesthetic appearance of the house, as well as to the interior walls, to add elegance to your home. Some studies have emphasized the ability of colors to improve the mood of humans.
