We have more than 70 combined years of home renovation experience in the Perth area. That is a lot of experience and we have walked into a lot of different home renovation situations. One of the first questions a lot of people ask is “wouldn’t it be easier to just knock it down and start over?” In most cases, the answer is “no.”
Why Home Renovations and House Extensions are Usually Better than Knockdown Rebuild
In almost every case, we can renovate and/or extend your home for less money and hassle than a knockdown rebuild would cost. During most home renovation and house addition jobs, there is almost no intrusion into your normal lifestyle.
Remember: if you decide on a knockdown rebuild, you are going to have to pay to live in temporary housing, usually a hotel, and store your possessions somewhere. This is added to the cost of the project itself.
Renovations and additions cost much less because they are using the infrastructure and other elements that are already present in your home. We can change your floor plan and modernise your home through renovation so that you wouldn’t recognise it from before if that is what you want or need.
Usually, though, we can do far more via renovation than you can imagine at first glance. Your home will look new and of high quality.
When is a Knockdown Rebuild the Best Answer?
We can think of two reasons to knock down your house and start over. The first would be if you really, really don’t like your house but don’t want to move. If you dislike your house so bad that you think renovation won’t work, then it can be better to start over.
The other reason is if your current house is trashed. This could be due to a natural disaster. It could be due to termites. Or you could have bought a “fixer upper” only to discover that the structure won’t hold renovations. Your home could be so badly “out of code” that it can’t be renovated, too.
