If you are considering a home renovation it can be a bit daunting. You have to consider where to begin, what the costs may be and what you want to renovate. With all those considerations it would be wise to know the reasons why you should renovate. Surely you have a main reason why you decided to undertake the project but are you aware of other reasons besides the way your home looks? If the answer is no, you may be surprised how renovation benefits your home. Let’s take a closer look shall we?
Renovation increases the value of your home
Older houses which have undergone renovation are much more attractive to potential buyers than a home that has to be renovated after it is purchased. Upgrades to a house that brings it into the twenty-first century are what most buyers expect of a home over thirty years old. So, while you are living in your home and renovating it, you are actually preparing it for sale at a future date.
Additional living space
If you have quite a large family, then you can comprehend the need for more living space. It can feel as if the walls are closing in on you when there are five or more people living under one roof. Of course you don’t need to have a large family to appreciate the value of living with more space. A kitchen that allows you and your family to move freely without any collisions is a welcome benefit of renovation for most families. Of course taking out a wall in your kitchen isn’t enough, you can add an extension to it, or any room in the house. Extensions are an excellent way to create space in your home and as we previously stated, increase the value of your home.
Do you have a large garage that is not being used to it’s full potential and sits there day after day? A garage conversion can be an ideal way to create more space in your home without adding on an extension. You can use a garage extension to create an additional room. Among the possibilities for your garage are:
If you have an unused loft, it can serve as all of the above, but a gym is not recommended because of the noise and potential to damage your ceiling. A loft makes a great place to create additional space for things such as an additional room for guests.
One of the most important renovations that you can undertake is roofing repair. It does not matter what kind of renovations you have done to make your home more attractive and comfortable if every time it rains a leak develops in the ceiling. Not only do roof leaks leave unsightly stains, they can contribute to the growth of mould and mildew in your homes. If you don’t take care of a leak in your roof right away, it can lead to wood rot. Eventually the roof will degrade enough from rot and cave-in. By having your roof repaired and have roofing maintenance done you are protecting your home and any subsequent renovations from water damage.
