Renovating your place can be an effective way to refresh the look of your house especially if you’ve been living for years in the same place with the same old design. It can be mentally refreshing to see a change.If you are reading this, chances are that you already have your mind set on wanting a change, but have you decided on what would be the most suitable change for the house? Some people want a change but aren’t sure which would be the right thing, whether to rebuild the house or to renovate the place.
Rebuilding vs remodeling?
This can be a daunting task, but in my opinion, I think you should stick to renovating the place as it would cost so much less than tearing the place down and re-building and the latter should be used only if there are major issues with the house. Rebuilding is a final decision and there’s no going back in it, but with home renovations Ferntree Gully, you can always change it again if you don’t like it albeit the additional cost. Rebuilding sure helps in the long-term, there could be issues with the entire house that might stay hidden for now but are exposed one by one, later on, in this case, it would be quite expensive and stressful to fix these issues one by one. Another advantage with rebuilding is that if you are selling the house in let’s say 14 years, you will technically be selling a 14-year-old house but if it’s renovated you will be selling a 34-year-old house, so in terms of that, the value of your house will increase.
The time duration for both will vary too, if you are renovating the house by changing the entire layout, then it’s going to take some time to break walls and fix them elsewhere, but with re-building, builders can demolish the entire building and get to work immediately thus consuming less time than renovations. Furthermore, with a rebuild, you would definitely have to move to a different location temporarily, but with a renovation, you can most probably stay in the same place as they continue with the procedures. You can make a more informed decision by knowing the difference between the two, both options are a good way to increase the home value of your house. Whatever, the decision, make sure that you hire reputed and experienced contractors or companies to do the job. You would also require permits to carry out the work, check if the company offers services that would aid you with obtaining your permit.
