Homeowners will eventually have to face the dilemma of renovation vs. new construction. This situation occurs frequently in the situation of owning a home that is a decade or more of age. At Ultimate Construction, we’ve heard of every argument for both sides, which is why we’ve compiled the information below to help you decide whether you should consider renovation or new construction as you plan for your future home.
Renovation is a broad term that covers anything from a simple bathroom redesign to the addition of a new wing to your house. Renovation may not grant you complete freedom, but the contractor still needs your input.
Renovation comes with many benefits that you may not have even considered:
Sometimes, you might consider a new construction, but you might only need a few renovations to your current home. It’s possible that once you make those updates, you’ll discover that you’re already satisfied.
While renovation is much more manageable than new construction, there are important questions you must ask yourself before starting.
These are simply a few factors you need to consider during a renovation, but once you have all the details you need, you’ll be ready to get the project started.
As you can imagine, a new construction involves a much larger investment, both in time and in expenses. You’ll need to work closely with your building team to ensure that your new home has been customized to your liking.
A new construction may seem like a daunting task at first, but you’ll find that there are benefits to building a brand-new house.
A new construction allows for everything to be built according to your specifications. Only budget and imagination can stand in the way of your vision.
When making the decision to construct or renovate, the answer is going to come down to your personal needs. Here are some questions to ask yourself before starting your project:
Your needs, situation, and budget help you make your final decision. Your best option is to contact a construction company to help you effectively deal with the problem.

1. When should I consider renovation instead of new construction?
If you find that you are satisfied with your current home, except for a few small parts of it, we advise renovation against construction. Since there are so many traits you already love, it is likely that updating the parts that you don’t like will bring you more satisfaction than constructing a brand-new home.
2. Which would cost less renovation or new construction?
This depends on the scale of your construction or renovation. In some cases, a large-scale renovation may cost more than a small-scale new construction. However, we’ve found that new construction generally costs more than renovation, due to the amount of different expenses involved.
3. Which is more environmentally friendly?
Again, this can vary from case to case. In general, however, since you have so much freedom of what you put into a new construction, building a new home has the potential to be environmentally friendly depending on the materials and landscaping you opt for. There also are renovations you can make to an existing home that can make them more ecofriendly and energy efficient.
