Your home is your castle. It’s the place you look forward to coming back to after a long day out in the world and the place where you build a life and make memories with your loved ones. And the only thing more rewarding than coming home to a beautiful living space is knowing that it’s everything you wanted in a home. If your home is a bit of a fixer-upper, that just means you get to enjoy the challenge of visualizing your dream and making it a reality.

As you’re going through the renovation process, you may find yourself wondering if it’s better to work with your existing space or rebuild a room. In this guide from The Construction Group in Woodbury, we’ll offer advice to help you make the right decision to get the beautiful home you’ve been dreaming of.

Rebuild or Renovate?

If you’ve watched any home remodeling shows, you know that there’s almost no limit to what a good general contractor can do with a vision and an experienced remodeling team. When you see a remodeling project on TV, they make it seem almost easy. But the truth is behind every finished project is a lot of time and labor that didn’t make the final cut. When you’re remodeling or renovating your home, what you don’t want is to make it more complicated than it has to be.

Here are a few things to consider when you’re renovating your home:

1.    How Much is Worth Keeping?

If a room has original features that you simply love, it’s probably better to work with what you’ve got than to gut it and start fresh. Think about the flooring, molding, and general layout. If your home is extremely outdated in a way you don’t find appealing, it may be better to reimagine the space entirely with the help of a general contractor.

2.    What’s the Overall Condition?

If the room or rooms you’re renovating have termite damage or are in poor condition, you’ll need to have them rebuilt or partially rebuilt. Structural damage due to foundation problems or moisture infiltration is another sign a room should be rebuilt.

3.    Do You Have Enough Room?

Maybe you love your existing space but it just isn’t enough. By extending your bedroom or reimagining the layout of your home, you can make better use of the existing space on your lot.
