Putting off a church renovation could cost you more in the long run. The cost can be a burden on your congregation but putting renovations on the back-burner could lead to serious repercussions and high costs down the road. If your church is falling into disrepair, it only stands to get worse over time.
Problems with putting off a church renovation:
- Water damage
- Cracked walls
- Cracked ceilings
- Falling plaster
- Structural damage
- Chipping paint
- Fading iconography or artwork
- Peeling statues
Leaving your church in disrepair could not only cause structural damage to your facility it could also cause your attendance to drop over time.
When you make a decision to renovate your church it is important to put together a qualified committee internally to spearhead the project.
Once you have a committee you want to find the right company for the job. Don’t just choose the cheapest person for the job or someone within your church who may not be entirely qualified. It is important to get the most out of your renovation budget, but a half-rate service could leave you disappointed with the end result or worse having to do the job again.
Keep your congregation informed throughout the process. If you want to include them in the decisions you can incorporate voting, but don’t try to please everyone – that would be impossible.
Don’t under prioritize the integrity of your building. Keeping up with it now could save you money in the future. We see this happen all of the time where routine maintenance would have saved the church a lot of money, had they done it.
