Home Renovation vs Custom Home Building

Custom Homes, Home Renovation | November 19, 2020

If you are having a hard time deciding between a home renovation and custom home building, getting to know the differences between the two options and consulting with an expert like the ones from Ridgepoint Homes will help you make an informed decision. Our team would also be happy to answer any questions you might have about the home renovation or custom home building process.

Benefits of a Home Renovation

A home renovation allows you to stay in the house that you have lived in for years and can cover anything from remodelling a single room in the house to completely gutting and redoing the entire interior. If you love your current home, renovating is the perfect option for prolonging your house’s lifespan and for bringing your house up to date by making it more energy efficient and environmentally friendly. While renovating your existing home will allow you to have a lot of say in what the final product looks like, it is important to keep in mind that the design plans for your renovation will have to work within the house’s existing footprint.

Benefits of Custom Home Building

Unlike renovating an existing home and having to work within the space that it already has, building a brand-new custom home will allow you to choose the exact layout and floorplan that will work best for your requirements. You will also have a say in everything from incorporating sustainable materials into the design for a more environmentally friendly home to all of the finishing touches—fixtures, flooring, colours, etc. Having a custom home built from scratch will also mean that your home is under warranty and that any maintenance or repairs will be minimal for years to come.

How to Choose Between Renovating and Building

Whether building a new home or renovating your existing home is the best option for you will depend on a wide range of different factors. It is important to take into consideration that timelines and overall costs will vary greatly, depending on your specific project requirements, the time of the year the project is being completed, and any unforeseen issues that arise during construction.
