4 Important Must-Dos After Purchasing A Resale Home

Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes the most gorgeous houses aren't the newest, and you end up falling in love with older homes for various reasons. Be it their desirable location, beautiful architecture or rich heritage, older homes do come with certain issues you may have to tackle. We've listed four aspects you definitely have to look into, to ensure your home is a safe environment to live in.

 

 

 

1. Remodelling The Structure

Older homes unsurprisingly have a more old school orientation, which most probably come with outdated tiles and wallpaper. Survey the house after purchase, noting down which areas you're looking at remodeling.

 

Check with your contractor if it's safe to do so, since you'll most likely be more inclined to want some major restructuring. Work together with your contractor to craft out the best plans with the most effective results, ensuring safety is placed at the top of both your concerns.

 

 

 

2. Bugs & Termites

You can never be too sure about infestations around the house. They're not always visible, so it's advisable to have the situation checked out. Get pest control to come check out your house, and if you're able to, ask the previous owners about any past infestations.

 

If possible, get pest control to inspect your home before renovation works even start, so they're able to rid your place of any problems right from the start. This is an essential step to take, since pest infestations can weaken structures, when they feed on materials like wood.

 

 

 

3. Mold Infestation

Mold is another infestation issue when it comes to older homes, thriving in wet climates and most probably found in bathrooms. With such humid and rainy weather in Singapore, mold can become a huge problem over time.

 

Mold growth can cause allergies, as well as issues for family members with respiratory problems. Get professionals to inspect your home for you, removing any mold infestation thoroughly before you even move in.

 

 

 

4. Electrical Safety

There are major risks where exposed wires are concerned, such as short circuiting and electrical fires, so before starting renovation work, we suggest you check that all electrical wiring are safe for use. Although wiring is meant to last countless years, sometimes water damage or even pest infestations can damage these electrical components.

 

Have a qualified electrician come over to check out your wiring, and if you notice any exposed wires before that, use electrical tape to wrap around the area and refrain from turning on any switches. Although these seem like drastic measures, it's essential to take safety precautions.
