Is it the time of the year? Are you planning to build your own home or office? Yes? Oh, that’s cool. But have you hired a residential architect to help you with the home designing and the architectural work? Is it a NO? Believe me, this is the biggest mistake that you’re committing. You maybe be good, chances are that you might turn up to be better than rest of your mates but when it comes to something for which you ain’t certified, you should always refer to a professional for help.
Let’s understand why you should hire a home or residential architect for your current and all future home or office constructions plan with a very common example. Let’s assume your tooth starts aching, the first thing you’ll do is call your dentist. Do you ever question why? Let me give you an answer because you know dental problems are not your cup of tea unless you are a dentist yourself. You call the dentist to help because you know they are the expert. Similarly, a home architect is someone who is certified to do the job and knows it better than you do. Moreover, you will only be able to construct your home whereas they will create a heaven for you within the same budget.
It’s always considered wise to learn from the mistakes of others rather than proactively committing it yourself and then realizing it. Hence, rather than waiting for the day to regret and say, “I wish I had hired a home architect” learn from others who committed the same mistakes to end up with a smiling face rather than a sad one saying, “thank god I hired a home architect”.
Let’s take a look at some practical benefits of hiring a home designer:
- Your house will enjoy their expertise: As we know the work of a home architect is to come up with a structural plan for your home, understanding your personal needs. Also, the knowledge of him/her whoever you’re going to hire will prove resourceful to you and will ensure the whole project is accomplished without a hitch. A residential architect will also have the knowledge of the right kind of material that fits your construction needs and survives for a longer period.
- They speak the professional language: When you talk to a professional you will ultimately know the amount of knowledge he/she has related to their profession. Architectural designs are complicated information for every non-architectural person to understand but when a residential architecture explains the drawings with the help of 2-D diagrams, it becomes easy for even the lamest brains. Basically, the whole process of home or office construction is the interpretation of a 2-Dimensional into a 3-Dimensional structure.
- They will be your advocate: When your contractor commits any mistake it won’t be easy to find that out for you even if you can feel it. But your architecture will always guide you and advocate your points if they are valid against the contractor. There have been cases when due to lack of an architect, mistakes have been committed and it became difficult for the contractors to rectify the same mistake later.
