As a condo owner, you might be interested in updating your living space. Condo renovations can provide a fresh look or design to any condo and increase property value and comfort.

Condo renovations and home renovations are similar, but some areas differ. Before starting the renovation process, it’s a good idea to understand these differences.

Detached-Home Renovation

When you are working on your detached home, there are very few limitations. You can choose to do as many renovations as you want so long as they don’t cause too much damage to the structure of the building.

You will not have to get strata approval for the work you plan to do, which makes the project more convenient for the owner. In addition, you will not have to worry about transporting machinery up to your condo unit.

Condo Renovation

Condo renovations need approval from a condo board or strata council. Before starting any renovations to your property, your condo board will inspect and approve the renovation plans.

During this time, the condo board will often hire an architect to inspect the design. The condo board will also require all work to be done by certified workers.

Because condo boards can be very strict, many people are reluctant to take on the project. However, doing renovations in your condo can turn out to be a very rewarding experience.
