Consider the Following and Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Professional Builders for Guidance

Renovating your home, whether it’s a new home construction or old build, can be a harrowing ordeal without the right guidance, offering little more than a few extra dollars to the resale value. For this reason, it’s always a smart bet to contact professional home builders for advice and recommendations on planning any renovation projects. Here are some points to consider to maximize both your return and your enjoyment on any renovation plans you may have:

Energy Efficiency

Making your home more energy-efficient is one feature that you will appreciate, and get more value out of, before you even consider putting your home up for sale. Builders across Canada agree that making these modifications will not only seem modern and cost-efficient to any potential buyers, but they will also save you a bundle of money within a few years. Replacing windows, installing fresh insulation, and updating any major appliances you have is an easy renovation project that can pay back big dividends over time.

Adding or Updating Bathrooms

There’s a reason that potential home buyers will always want to know how many bathrooms a house has: because bathrooms are an important and often essential feature to have for any house. By renovating your existing bathrooms to be more modern and comfortable, and by adding new bathrooms to homes that don’t have enough, you are hitting a major selling point.

The Kitchen

Renovating your kitchen is one of the most popular and sought-after renovations for both new and old home owners. When buying into a new home construction, make sure that the kitchen is both aesthetically pleasing and functional, because it will likely be your most used space in the house.

Flow and Function

It’s important to stop and consider whether your home has a flow to it, where each room serves a specific function and movement between them is effortless. If you’re not satisfied with this element of your home, it’ll be something to address during the renovation process.

Heating, Cooling, and Utilities

Adding a room or space to your home is one task in and of itself, but you also should consider if your current HVAC system can sustain the addition of the new space, and if not, what you can do to ensure that room receives adequate heat, ventilation, and air conditioning. You may need to make modifications to accommodate the additional space.

If you’re not sure about how to address these or any other concerns you have related to your renovation, contact professional home builders today—they’re always there to help!
