As your life changes, your home must follow suit. New children, new interests, and new opportunities may require you to remodel your home—sometimes considerably. At that point, you’ll need to decide whether you want to perform a sweeping whole-house renovation or start from scratch.
Is your home in disrepair?
Before you pick up a sledgehammer, you should have a home inspector visit your home and perform a complete interior and exterior analysis. If there are any structural problems with your foundation, framing, roof, or walls, you may be best off starting from scratch. A structurally sound home, however, might be more suited for an extensive remodel depending on how much new space you may like to add and what you are going to use the space for.
Do you like your home’s location?
Repositioning your home on your lot would require a total demolition. However, you may be able to salvage and reuse some of the materials and fixtures from the original home in the construction of the new house, which would certainly be more cost effective and also eco-friendly.
Are you attached to your home?
If you’ve lived in your home for decades, or if it has historical value, you probably don’t want to tear it down under any circumstances. You may, however, be able to perform an extensive renovation that is true to the character, appearance, and level of finish of your home and neighborhood.
