How to renovate a place to achieve the goals of beauties, durability, and being practical?
โดย admin     2019-01-24



A big home related problem that many of you used to face, apart from maintenance and repairs of a house, is a renovation. Though it can actually be simply said that, I want to add this, add that, when you need to really put your hands on it, there are so many things to be concerned. However, making yourself know of every step and be aware of everything since the planning step are good, because it will surely not make you confused and panic when a problem arises. For today’s topic, we would like to gather all concerns about renovations, starting from the planning until the ending.

1 Legal concerns, the first thing to prioritize

Regardless of which part to be extended from your old house, all of them will be considered as “renovations” according to the laws. Many of you may be in doubt that why the laws? This is our home! The reason for this is that, there must be sufficient spaces around your house in case of emergency, as well to maintain good sanitary of the residential area, and to allow air flow and natural light.

For the clearance of each type of houses and commercial buildings, it can be checked from the 55th Ministerial Regulations on Clearance and Distance (Link: http://bit.ly/2PFFPdz). Also, do not forget to inform your neighbors of your ongoing renovations in order to avoid problems in the future.

2 Functions are big concerns, but the structure is important as well

Certainly, before starting a renovation, we do know that what functions we have aimed for. For a renovation that is made additionally to an existing house, we recommend you build a new structure separately from that of the old house. The new structure should not be stuck or connected to the old structure. The foundation and the foundation piles should be laid separately as they need to support the active force and collapse of the ground.

Let’s think, if the structure of a house was initially calculated to support only the body of that house, when we make a renovation and increase some more weight to that old structure, it may not be able to support the whole part and will result in structural collapse. In the worst case, it may pull down all the house, not just the renovated part. Even though the old foundation and the new foundation for the renovated part may be able to support the same weight, the quality of the old foundation may not be equivalent to the new one as it has been used for a long time.

3 Assessment of the old building

Before making a renovation, you should have an assessment on each part of the old building that you wish to renovate. If you find any problem at the main structure, you should immediately solve it for the sake of your own house. This also includes other defective details, such as cracks or traces. They should be solved completely prior to the renovation, because…better be sure than sorry.

4 Keep your eyes on connecting parts

As we told you earlier that the old and the new constructions should not be connected, another thing to be concerned is the connecting part. The connecting part is where the topmost of the roof of the old and the new spaces adjoin, and the parts where both walls connect, as these connecting parts are always the leakages of rains, resulting in damage to the renovated part, in terms of moistness and fungi that may cause in the future. Besides, the concerns also cover all connecting parts of the renovations, ranging from door/window frames to the shades of the terrace.

As a result, every connecting part should be closely assessed, starting from the construction process, to make sure that all parts have been sealed by polyurethane. For the connecting parts at the roof, wings should be first installed prior to sealing in order to help protect the construction from the rains. Don’t forget to be attentive to materials and construction procedures.

5 Functions are important, as well as the beauties

Undoubtedly, many of you wishing to make a renovation will first be thinking of the functions. The functions have actually lessened the importance of the beauties. But don’t forget that all renovations can be seen from outside. Therefore, a good design is something that matches and promotes the beauties of the old house, both in terms of materials and appearance.

6 Prefab, an alternative material

At present, we have a prefabrication system in the field of constructive innovations, which is a system that offers materials completely made from the factory, leading to lower time spent and wages for on-site operation in terms of installations. It is a clever alternative for every room that requires ready-made furniture. One good thing about this technology is that the products have been through a competitive construction technology and assessment of standards from the factory. Therefore, things that the owner need to concern are only the preparation of rooms and quality of installation works. It only takes 2 days for a new room to be complete, no more waiting!
