    Custom Homes, Renovations | March 10, 2022

    If your home is no longer suitable for your lifestyle or the size of your family, you have likely considered a large-scale renovation or building a completely new home. While both options offer several benefits for all types of owners, it can be difficult to determine which option is the perfect choice for your needs. As a leading provider of quality custom home construction and home renovations, the team at Northwest Construction knows how difficult it can be to choose between these solutions. That is why we have compiled some information on renovating vs. building a new custom home to demonstrate the benefits of each method and help you make an informed decision.

    Learn what to consider when building a custom home.

    Benefits of Renovating/Remodelling

    The most significant benefit of a home renovation is that it allows you to stay in the home and neighbourhood you have lived in for years, eliminating the need to uproot your family and settle elsewhere. Home renovations can cover anything from remodelling a single room in the house to completely remodelling every interior element, allowing you to experience a new home without the need for a new location. If you love your current home, renovating is the perfect option for prolonging your house’s lifespan and for bringing it up to date by making it more efficient and environmentally friendly. While renovating your existing home allows for a lot of design freedom, it is important to remember that the design plans for your renovation will need to work within the house’s existing footprint.

    Benefits of Custom Home Building

    Building a brand-new custom home allows you to choose the exact layout and floorplan that will work best for your requirements, giving you complete design freedom. You will also have a say in everything from materials and appliances to the number of rooms and layout of your home. 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. This makes custom homes a great choice for homeowners that are okay with moving and want a home that is tailored to their precise wants and needs.

    Which Option is Right for You?

    When comparing each option, there are several factors to consider. First, it is crucial to note that timelines and overall costs will vary greatly between renovations and custom homes as the former option is typically less expensive and can be completed in less time. Next, it is important to consider how much the location of your home matters to you. If you live in a great neighbourhood and have strong ties to the local community, a renovation may make more sense than purchasing a lot in a different location to build a home on.
