Tired of seeing those crusty ovens in your kitchen? Have you ever thought about replacing that old bathtub or that creaking cabinet?
When you have lived in a home for well over a decade, you start to notice rooms and areas that need renovation. While renovating is always a good idea, most homeowners end up fixing one part of the home, and then seeing the changes gets them itching to do the same to other areas. If you have the money for it, demolish and build might be a better idea.
Here is a look at what you can get taking the ‘demolish and build’ route:
New Paint Job
A fresh coat of paint both on the interiors and exteriors is a good way to freshen up your property. After a few years, the initial coat of paint will have likely turned greyish, and that sunflower yellow will have looked paler. The preferred home colours today have also changed from ten years ago. By building from the ground up, you get more than just a fresh coat—you get new walls altogether.
Maintaining an old roof is so much more costly than upgrading to a new roofing system. If you constantly see water trickling down from your attic, perhaps it’s time to contact your trusted home builders. A thorough inspection of your failing roof may just be the push you need to start giving some serious thought to the demolish and build project.
New Air Conditioning System
In relation to a new roof, an upgraded air conditioning system will also reduce your heating and cooling costs. With the threats and hazards of global warming, it is always better to be prepared against colder winters and hotter summers. Replacing your windows and upgrading your air and ventilation systems can be costly, but you will save more money in the long run if you prioritise a healthier and more liveable home.
New Kitchen and Bathrooms
Your kitchen and bathrooms are perhaps the busiest rooms in your home, and are the parts with the most signs of wear and tear. You will spend more money with cleaning materials for those clogged sinks and toilet bowls than you will on a completely new kitchen and new bathrooms.
Your trusted home builders will inspect your home, give a quote on the budget and schedule, and deliver high-quality work that will make your neighbours jealous. If you have extra money, you can even put in an outdoor kitchen and deck, and those will pay off handsomely when you sell your home in the future.
