A home renovation is a process of improving, repairing or making additions to a home.
Renovations can range from new kitchens and attic conversions to updating facades and entire overhauls.
Each home renovation is unique and so are the reasons for doing so. Some of the most common reasons are to add value to the home, improve energy efficiency, add extra space, or repair damage.
A renovation can help modernize your home!
Renovating your home is a great way to add value to your property. Updating dated designs is one of the best ways to increase selling value. Existing attic storage can be renovated to add an extra room to your house. Kitchens can be extended to create spaces for entertaining and open plan living areas that are very desirable in today’s market.
These useful additions are all extremely practical, increase your overall square footage, and add long term value to your home.
Larger scale renovations also increase property value. Over the years, some homes can become dated and look rough around the edges. Modernizing your home with a full exterior renovation will change its style completely and really increase your homes’ appeal.
Replacing worn roof tiles with new, more durable tiles will keep your house looking fresh and desirable for years to come.
Homes that were built twenty or thirty years ago simply cannot compare to the energy efficient ones that are being built nowadays. They require less energy to run, less effort to maintain and less money on a daily basis. With a few considered choices, a renovation can make your house extremely energy efficient.
Heating our homes takes a massive toll on our energy systems. Using oil and gas is an inefficient, expensive, and environmentally unfriendly way to heat our rooms. During your renovation, if you install a renewable energy source, your home will be much more environmentally friendly.
A geothermal heating system is a great choice if you’re looking to replace your entire heating system. This system uses the residual heat from the earth to heat, and even cool, your home. If you’re looking for a system to supplement your current system, look no further than solar energy. Installing a solar kit is a relatively low-impact installation but can help reduce your reliance on fossil fuels.
Installing a thermal mass in your home during your renovation will also greatly help your energy efficiency. A thermal mass is a large structure, often a floor, made from a material, often concrete, that retains heat during the day and releases it during the night. This helps regulate temperature, reducing the reliance on heating systems at night.
Unfortunately, some older, poorly built homes can suffer from mold and damp. Not only will a renovation rid your home from these issues, but you can also help prevent them from ever happening again.
The key to this is to use an experienced construction company that understands the need for considering humidity and ventilation in the design of the home. A renovation can remove damage caused by humidity and also install a sufficient ventilation system, ensuring the problem doesn’t return.
Sometimes our needs change. Perhaps you need more space for a growing family, want to make your home accessible for all, or simply want to change your home environment. A renovation can make all these things happen!
