A Handy Guide To Knock-Down And Rebuild
If you are facing the dilemma of your family outgrowing your home or are just tired of living in an old house, and are longing for a modern and fresh alternative, then buying a new home and moving may be the first solution that comes to mind. Sadly, moving house often bring about giving up an area that you like, saying goodbye to good neighbours and finding new schools and facilities in a new neighbourhood. To avoid this, many families are looking at alternative options such as renovating or even demolishing and rebuilding a new home.
Renovate or knock-down and rebuild?
It is a common perception that renovating is simpler and cheaper than rebuilding, but once you start to weigh up the pros and cons you may find that rebuilding is often the better solution.
The costs involved in changing your home is often the determining factor; home renovators usually charge more per square metre than home builders and this makes a large difference if you are making major changes to the home – such as working on more than 50 percent. Many companies offer a fixed price contract for knock-down and rebuild projects, but when you renovate, unforeseen problems may arise which can increase the costs significantly.
Many old homes have structural problems like leaking plumbing, poor electrical wiring and even termites which can remain hidden until you’re half-way into the renovation project. The simple solution for avoiding this is to knock-down and rebuild.
Another major benefit of demolishing and rebuilding your home is that it gives you the opportunity to start with a clean slate. When you start from scratch you are able to have a say in every aspect of the home – from the layout, to home design exterior and interior, to finishes and landscaping.
