Remodeling is simply the quicker alternative to the complete reconstruction of a home. When you tear down an old home and build a new one the time frame can vary from months to a full year depending on the lot, zoning laws, city and state laws, and the effectiveness of the company you hire. Remodeling does mean you and your family will be living in a construction zone for a short period. Still, the savings and timeframe, when compared to completely rebuilding, is incredibly much more attractive.
Make green choices! Rebuilding requires a lot of materials being torn down, discarded, and CO2 emissions are incredibly high. Machinery, waste, chemicals, and more cause building a new home to fall short when it is being compared to a remodeling job. During remodeling, you can also install eco-friendly appliances that help reduce your carbon footprint! Solar panels are just one of many great remodeling hacks that can transform your new design into a very healthy and safe option for our planet.
