Living in a home that is full of problems and frustrations is not fun for anyone. If you have an older home that is not holding up well, it can be a tricky decision to decide if you should remodel the home or move ahead with residential demolition and start from scratch. Here at Snead’s Outdoor Services (SOS), we want to help make this decision easier. Here are a few things that might help you decide between remodeling and residential demolition.
- Is the home old or historic? There is a big difference between an old home and one that is considered to be historic. Be very careful when considering the residential demolition of old homes and check with your city to ensure you can make changes to your property.
- Are you interested in the property itself? Sometimes the neighborhoods you are interested in are not going to have your ideal home. In these cases, it might be reasonable for you to buy a home simply to acquire the piece of land it sits on. Then you can demolish the home and start fresh.
- Have you noticed safety concerns in the home? Remodeling can fix a host of different issues. However, significant safety concerns in the home might necessitate residential demolition and a fresh, safe start.
- Will city/county codes allow for residential demolition? Always check the city/county code laws before contracting with a residential demolition professional. You should also work with a professional demolition company that will be up to date on local code laws.
