Why Tear It Down When You Can Build It Up? Five Reasons to Remodel Your Home

Five Reasons to Remodel Your Home

Remodeling a home can seem like a daunting task. However, if you select the right contractor to complete your whole-house remodel, the process will be well worth its reward. If you’ve outgrown your current home but love the location too much to move, here are five reasons to remodel your home:

It truly makes the home your own

When you first bought your home, you may have done so because it met your basic needs. It had the right number of bathrooms; was the type of house you were looking for and it was in the perfect neighborhood. Additionally, you may have bought the house because it was in your budget at the time and was less expensive than one with modern finishes. Since then, aspects of your life have changed. By remodeling, you’re able to truly make a house your own. Maybe it’s by opening up the space, remodeling an old bathroom or upgrading your kitchen.

It increases the value of your home

One of the biggest advantages to remodeling your home is it increases its value. Whether it’s adding modern finishes in the kitchen to appeal to a younger market or if you upgrade your siding to add more curb appeal, after these upgrades are completed the value of your home will increase significantly. Since it’s all about location, location, location and if your home is already in a desirable neighborhood, it may be more financially feasible to renovate, staying right where you are and adding upgrades, as opposed to trying to build a new home.

You can take advantage of energy saving options

If you have an older home, you most likely don’t have high-efficiency windows, new insulation, solar panels or hurricane impact glass. Adding these features to your home will not only help increase its value but save you some money on your energy bills each month. Hurricane impact glass will also be beneficial to your personal safety if you’re in a state prone to hurricanes. Additionally, it will save you some time when preparing for a storm because you no longer have to board up your windows and they’re energy efficient. Not to mention, if you do opt for greener, energy-saving appliances you’re also reducing your carbon footprint. It’s a win-win.

More room for less money

If your family has grown over the years but your house has stayed the same, splitting a large bedroom into two, finishing your basement or turning your attic into a spare bedroom can create more space in your home for guests or a live-in family member. Renovating your home in this fashion is much more cost effective than building. Plus, you won’t have to move for more space.

You’re left with a sense of accomplishment

It’s no secret that renovating your home can be a time-consuming, expensive process. But, it’s completely worth it in the end. Once your home remodel is finished, you’ll be left with a sense of accomplishment. And the gorgeous home that perfectly fits your family’s needs and better fits your vision you created may come with a much lower price tag than buying new.
