Everyone loves a good reno, there’s nothing like seeing a spectacular before and after comparison in your home.

Is it cheaper to renovate or build new?
It’s important to do the maths before beginning your renovation project. While home renovation can be costly, it’s usually not going to be as expensive as building a brand-new house from scratch. Consider the budget you would need to demolish your house and re-build, or to build a brand-new house in a different area. With that budget, how much renovation would you be able to do? You’ll likely find out that you can get a significant amount of renovation done for the price. As well, when you renovate you have the advantage of having a beautifully done up house in an established area – which is a great investment in terms of resale price.
Do renovations require permits?
Building permits help ensure the structural stability and safety of a building, and you’ll need to find out whether you need one before embarking on a renovation project.
Renovations that will change the structure or shape of your home (such as new windows or doors, or the removal of internal loadbearing walls) will require a permit. However, minor internal alterations and small external changes won’t need a permit. You can contact a building surveyor to apply for a building permit if necessary.
How much do renovations cost?
No two home renovation projects are the same, so it’s hard to give an accurate estimate of price without knowing any details. The cost of a home renovation will vary widely depending on:
- The scope of the renovation
- The design and materials you choose
- The site access
- How level the site is
- How much construction is required
- The age of the house and type of construction

What’s the difference between remodelling and renovating?
You might think that the terms renovation and remodelling are pretty much the same; however, there is a slight difference between the two. Essentially, remodelling refers to creating something completely new, whereas renovation refers to restoring something to a previous state. When you renovate your house, you’re restoring it to a good or new condition (or perhaps an even better condition than it originally was). PGR Builders is here to help you do just that.
