What does renovating a building mean?

You are interested in buying a house but you don’t know what criteria to use to choose between building or renovating an old house. Let us help you understand the difference between these two options and guide you in your choice.

The building of a property

Building your own home allows you to choose the size, interior layout and exterior design as you wish. You can therefore benefit from a real liberty to build your house.

First, it is important to take the time to choose your land. Then you need to hire an architect to draw up your plans. The price of building a house varies according to the location where you want to build, the size of the land, the type of construction (multi-storey or single-storey house) and the choice of materials.

Keep in mind that once built, your house will be completely new and up to standards.

However, the construction takes longer to complete, it takes 1 year. The price is higher with many extras such as the acquisition and servicing of the land.

Home renovation

Remodeling or Renovation allows you to combine the comfort of modern with the charm of the old. It gives a new look to an old building.

Moreover, you will already have a global view of what your house will be like. You will not start from scratch, and this will guide you in your choice during the renovation.

The advantages are numerous:

  • more economical
  • attractive prices
  • less time-consuming work (generally less than 6 months)
  • possibility of interesting resale
  • administrative steps lightened

It is important to note that you must still obtain authorization if you wish to modify your home’s exterior renovation (moving a window/door or opening in the façade).

Building or renovating are two options that both have strong and weak points. Do not hesitate to ask for your free estimate, our contractors will answer your questions, guide and accompany you in your project.
