Rebuild or Renovate Your Austin Area Home?

Are you tasked with deciding between rebuilding or renovating? If so, you will want to try to figure out some of the pros and cons of each. In this article, we will be going over some of the top tips for choosing whether to rebuild or renovate your home. Dumposaurus would be more than happy to help in anyway we can with our services.


Tips For Choosing:

What’s Your Budget and What Are You Looking To Do?

These are perhaps the most important factors that should influence your decision. In order to start, you need to figure out how much you are willing and able to spend. How much are you willing to allocate to your project? Then, you need to look at how much you are looking to do with it. If you are going to be doing a heavy renovation involving taking pretty much everything down, you will find it cheaper to simply start with a clean slate. Whereas, if you are looking to make subtle or minor changes here or there, you won’t want to completely rebuild as it would be cheaper to renovate. Therefore, you want to look at both the costs of your project and how much you are willing to spend on it. By considering both of these things, you should be able to put yourself in a good spot to figure out the best option for maximum value and cost savings.

Factor In Your Home’s Age.

Another thing that you should be looking to consider would be the age of your entire home. If you are going to be heading out to do extensive work on your home, you might want to completely rebuild if your home is incredibly old. After all, if your home is old, you will likely have a lot of things like wiring, plumbing, and other extensive fixes that you will need to make. All of this is going to be much easier and cheaper if you simply started from scratch.

Consider The Conditions.

You have to consider your home’s foundation and whether or not you will have trouble rebuilding on it. Some are going to have much more optimal building conditions than others. Consider whether or not that is the case for your own situation.

How Long Are You Planning On Staying?

You should be considering whether or not you are going to be staying in your home long term. Your long term plan is going to be very important in picking the right choice because it can completely change the value of your home. IF you are planning on living in the house for a long time and selling in well into the future, you are likely going to be better off completely tearing everything down. After all, by getting rid of everything and starting over with your already 20-year-old house, 10 years later you will be selling a home that is only 10 years old versus one that is 30 years old. Prospective buyers typically look at the overall age of a home when factoring in their interest and the value of it.

As you can see, there is a lot to consider when you are trying to figure out whether to knock everything down and rebuild or to renovate. If you are going to be doing either, you can utilize our dumpster and recycling rental services to assist during your home construction projects.
