Renovation or Remodelling: What Makes Them Different?
When it comes to renovations, most people confuse the terms renovation & remodel. In this post, we’ll cover the differences between the two and how you should identify what your project will involve. Once you have a solid understanding about Renovation vs Remodelling, then you can proceed with hiring the right contractor.
What is Renovation?
When it comes to defining the term renovation, we’ll need to look at a few things. According to Dictionary.com, renovation is defined as restoring (something) to good condition. For example, if a bathroom is considered to be in a state of disrepair, then you would have to renovate to resurrect the bathroom from that state. Renovations can also be subtle, where they improve on existing components of the building. Does it sound similar to Remodelling? Well, let’s take a look at what remodelling is.
What is Remodelling?
Remodelling is defined as “To change the structure or form of (something)”. So when it comes to remodelling, you would be drastically changing the structure of your home/building. An example of a remodelling project would be adding additional rooms or bathrooms to an existing house. By understanding your project ahead of time, you can hire the right contractor to do the job. Another point to remember when it comes to remodelling is these types of projects generally cost more and may require special permits.
