One of the biggest questions our clients ask us is how do I know I need a home renovation? While the answer varies depending on individual situations, we’ve put together a list of some of the most common reasons in order to help those on the fence make an informed decision.
1. Your family is growing… shouldn’t your home?
Whether you have a baby on the way, your kids are getting bigger, or they’re moving back in, you’re going to need more space. To make more room for your growing family, consider adding an extension or dormer to your home. An additional room can function as a bedroom for one of your kids or a nursery for the baby on the way. If you have enough property to add an extension, this may be the way to go. However, if you’d rather build up than out, a dormer can be a perfect choice for your home.
2. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
Like anything else, your home ages over time, even if you don’t realize it! This means it might be time to look into replacing things like roofing, siding, or appliances before a leak or bigger issues start to occur. For example, asphalt roofing shingles have an expected life expectancy of about 15-30 years provided they’re given regular maintenance but can also be affected by the types of weather conditions your area is vulnerable to.
3. Be the talk of the town!
Maybe your home is just overdue for a makeover and you want a fresher or more modern design. A stylish, eye-catching home can make you the talk of the town. One way to do this is a kitchen remodel. As we’ve discussed in previous blogs, the kitchen is the hub of your home so investing in new countertops, cabinets, and appliances can really make a huge difference! In addition, adding new siding and roofing not only keeps the elements out like we touched on in the last section but can also give your home’s exterior a splash of color which will improve your curb appeal as well!
