What You Need to Know When Choosing between a Renovation or a Demolition Company

Homeowners often ask us whether they should renovate or demolish their home. It can be a difficult task choosing between a renovation and demolition company. There are notable advantages to both approaches, whether it be the price of the project, or the quality of the results.

NTL Contracting and Waterproofing Inc. is an excavation and demolition company that offers a wide variety of contracting services for the homebuilding and demolition process. Here are a few things we’ve learned through our 20 years in business.

Rebuilding Reduces Your Need for Large Repairs | Demolition Company Toronto

One of the biggest advantages of rebuilding your home is the fact that it resets the clock on costly repairs. You don’t have to worry about replacing your furnace, roof, windows, or anything like that because you will be installing new ones. You also don’t have to worry about larger problems like your foundation, or low-quality workmanship from the previous homebuilder and owner.

Each of these items is costly to replace and something you need to consider when deciding on whether to hire a renovation or demolition company for your project.

Remodeling Is Better for Your Budget | Demolition Company Toronto

In almost every circumstance, it will cost less to remodel your home. Of course, if a home is a complete write-off (like after a major fire or disaster), this may not be the case.

However, if your home is in good shape and only needs minor remodeling, it may be more cost effective to hire a renovation company instead.

If you are looking to save money on your renovation, we recommend you update your home rather than start from new.

A New Home Is Built Your Way | Demolition Company Toronto

As we mentioned above, hiring a demolition company and a homebuilding company is more costly, but there are major advantages as well.

You can design a home your way when you build it. That means you can avoid all the little imperfections that come with buying an older home. You don’t have to worry about bad foundations, poor workmanship when it comes to framing, plumbing, and electrical work, and other nuisances.

Shape the Land Ahead of Time | Demolition Company Toronto

Many homeowners don’t consider the quality of the land that their home is built on. It’s not uncommon for homes to experience foundation issues when they are built on land that is frequently wet.

You can greatly increase the lifespan of your foundation when you hire an excavation company to terraform the plot of land that it will be located on. But in order to do this, you will need to hire an excavation and demolition company to remove and sculpt the land properly.
