I have an Old House on a Block of Land… Shall I Demolish and Build New or Shall I Renovate?
That’s a very good question. Before we answer, we usually invite you to call us for a quick discussion. On that discussion, here are some important points that we will raise for your consideration: –
Age and condition of the existing house.As an example, if the existing house is between 30 to 50 years old, has cracks through the walls and ceiling, the foundation’s don’t look solid and to be honest, you will not like to live there in a short term, pretty much the answer is straight forward… Let’s Demolish and Build!. Give us a call!!, our team will help you from the start to the completion and save you headaches!!! Our team has processes in place to help you with the demolition, design and construction of the New Build based on previous good experiences with our customers. –
Have you had a look at the houses in the same street?Have you checked your neighbour’s houses? This will give you a good indication of the area and if it worth it for your pocket without overcapitalizing. Let’s try to be honest again … if you are the oldest or ugliest house on the street or one of them, and you have brand new homes or full renovated homes around, it doesn’t hurt to call us to be able to give you a quote for Demolish and Build New or for Renovate the existing house. We may be able to keep the structural parts of the house and go from there and save you some dollars and time.
