7 to Knock Down Rebuild instead of renovate

More and more people are choosing to knock-down-rebuild rather than renovate. Here's our top 10 reaons why a rebuild may be a better fit for you than a renovation.

Optimal layout: A knock down rebuild allows you to start from scratch and create a home that is tailored to your specific needs and preferences. This can be especially appealing if your current home is not optimally designed or does not meet your needs well.

No hidden costs: Renovating your own home often carries the risk of incurring hidden costs from old pipes, wiring, decay, mould, and more. By choosing a knock down rebuild, you’ll know exactly how much your project is going to cost, and will avoid any nasty surprises.

Increased value: A well-designed and well-built new home is designed with a modern market in mind. With your new home appealing to a wider range of buyers, choosing a knock-down-rebuild will add value to your property and increase your resale value.

Energy efficiency: New homes are typically more energy efficient than older homes, which can result in lower energy bills, a more comfortable living environment, and a lower environmental impact.

Tailored Aesthetics: A knock down rebuild allows you to fully customise the aesthetic elements of your new home, aligning it perfectly with your tastes and preferred feel for your living spaces.

Less Maintenence: New homes are typically easier to maintain. Since your entire build will feature brand new materials, you’ll enjoy a far greater amount of time before wear and tear impacts your home.

Warranties and guarantees: A reputable builder will provide warranties and guarantees on the full scope of their works. In the instance where work or materials are faulty, you’ll be covered by these warranties, and be able to have any issues addressed without the cost or stress of solving them yourself.
