What is a home renovation?
A renovation is where the room will stay the same, but with upgrades. In other words, the living room will remain as a living room, but it will be enhanced with new cabinets, new finishes, or new appliances. This can be contrasted to a remodel, where a room is turned into something entirely different. The terms are often used interchangeably but there is a notable difference between the two. Home renovations often make far more sense - it will need renovations every 10 - 15 years. But a remodel takes more work and needs to be well thought out to be truly justified. If you are looking for either a renovation or a remodel, call Bob Fougere for professional advice on 0439 090 287.

It depends on your skills and expertise. You might have certain DIY skills. But the devil is always in the details, and for big jobs, it is usually much smarter to call in the professionals. Consider that you can’t do ‘half’ a home renovation. What will happen is that the team you call in to fix the problem will have to rip it out and start all over. This is usually the way these things pan out. If it were easy to do your own home renovation, then we would be out of business!

Is a home renovation worth it?
