In these situations we often find it is a good idea to get some of the smaller repairs done and then maybe progress into your kitchen renovations or your bathroom renovations. Regardless of your starting point it is always a good idea to talk to someone that has done this all before. Ken Bradshaw of Total Home Service is always a good bet if you want to reduce your headaches and find a manageable starting point for your Vancouver Home Repairs or your Home Improvements Vancouver.
The transformation of a home into a dream home is one that can easily happen much quicker and easier than many people think. Along with a fairly minor expense the normal home could easily become much more than simply a house. There are a variety of methods that the average home owner can revamp their home to develop a customized area that is not only completely suited to their lifestyle, but is a discussion point for the house.
Developing an overall concept for a home is an intriguing experience and may be very rewarding if a success and heartbreaking if it isn’t. Many people spend significant time discussing matters with a decorator and others simply have the talent for detailing their spaces already. In either case, the very first thing you are going to have to arrange is the financing for your venture. If it is on a small size you may simply be able to invest in it up front. Other then that certainly there are a few equity financing choices such as the second mortgage or the home owners line of credit. Each of these options are ideal for remodellings as they come with reasonable interest rates with the loan protected by your home equity.
In terms of where to start with your renovations, think about which rooms in the home you use the most. Typically this will be the kitchen, main bathroom, and living room. One of the best ways to change the feel of the first two is to replace all the appliances and fixtures. The living room will be a bit of a different story. This space will be best served by some new furniture, art and maybe new floors.
The exterior of any home can be given new life by some landscaping and TLC for the yard. The yard will be anyone’s first impression of your home so make sure you give it the necessary attention. Tending to the gardens, lawn and driveway will add a nice scenic element to the front yard and add value to the home. Creating your perfect are is not difficult, express your creativity and increase your home’s value at the same time!

“Homes built prior to 1990 can contain an invisible hazard: asbestos. This video walks you through an older home, identifying the most common places asbestos is found and highlighting the importance of proper testing and removal.”
What is asbestos?
“Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material that was a popular building material from the 1950s to 1990s. It was used extensively because it is an insulator, has good fire protection properties, has tensile strength, and is resistant to chemical erosion.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to know if you’re working with asbestos because it is often mixed with other materials. However, if you work in a building built before 1990, it’s likely that at least some parts of the building will contain asbestos.”

Can You Identify Asbestos in the Home
You will be unable to identify materials containing asbestos in the house by only looking at it. In rare cases the materials will have a label identifying asbestos in the material so you have to conduct an ocular inspection. In order to truly find out if there is asbestos present in the house, you will need the help of a qualified professional. The first thing the profession will do is take samples of the material, have it analized to determine if it is positive for asbestos fibers.
Even if there is asbestos in your house, it does not mean absolute that it is a current health risk. If asbestos containing material is disturbed, damaged or in bad condition is when you should think about or removing it from your house.
