Home Renovations in Canberra: Renovate or Renew?

renovation canberra

Building or renovating your very own home is one of the most exciting and simultaneously stressful experiences a person (or family) can undertake. Deciding to relocate or renovate is a huge decision and needs an intensive evaluation of your current situation and future expectations. Family and financial dynamics often change, so there’s a number of factors to consider before you decide whether to simply improve or just up and move. At Mode Creative Homes we will talk you through everything you need to know to make this momentous decision!

Many people opt for renovation over relocation generally for the same three reasons:

  1. Cost cutting – Serious saving through elimination of stamp duty plus legal fees, not to mention the associated buying/selling or moving fees
  2. Value of investment improvement – Conducted with care and forethought, renovating will add value
  3. Location – An ideal option if your family is accustomed to their familiar surrounds

Renovation services

Regardless of whether you are planning a minor improvement or a major overhaul, there are an almost infinite number of modifications you can make to upgrade your property and we do them all:

  • Custom renovations and extensions
  • Maintenance or insurance work
  • Pergolas and decking
  • Kitchens, bathrooms and joinery

Most builders will be able to provide a range of renovation services to suit your needs. However, it’s imperative to get specific advice to ensure that you are spending your money wisely. We have the talent and expertise to ensure you do exactly that. It's good to remember there are certain areas which, generally speaking, cost more to upgrade or repair:

  • Rotting roof
  • Sloping floors or walls
  • Rewiring electricity or new plumbing
  • Shower recesses
  • Pest damage

Some home renovations seem to be a simple matter, however, in truth, that’s almost always due to the professional skill of the builder and the planning and prioritising of exemplary designs. When embarking on a home renovation project, it’s important to do your research and engage a qualified and reputable building company. Most companies will advocate the use of an architect, to facilitate innovative and sustainable designs, which will invariably improve the value of your home. As you want to ensure that your renovation or addition is stylish but also functional. Our team of talented professionals will walk you through every decision and give you access to our architect who will help you realise your dream.
