3 Signs Your Home Needs Remodeling

Home Remodeling / July 13, 2021

There is no other place as comfortable as your home. Your home is a place where you can be yourself without the fear of being judged by others. Every room and area of your home carries numerous memories.

Every home needs a makeover every 15 to 20 years. According to CMHC’s 2019 Mortgage Consumer Survey, more than 6-in10 homebuyers (63%) plan to renovate their homes within 5 years. If you are bored with the way your home looks or the structures in your home are deteriorating, consider remodeling it. Many Canadians refinance their homes in order to renovate. Refinancing a home for renovations was the 2nd highest reason in 2019 for refinancing. A whole-house remodeling will preserve the character of your home and improve its aesthetics and functionality.

Here are some signs it’s the right time to remodel your home.

You Have a Leaky Roof

Your roof is an integral part of your home. In addition to improving the appearance of your home, your roof protects it from the elements. Roofs help maintain optimal indoor temperatures.

A leaky roof is a recipe for disaster. Roofs deteriorate and can become susceptible to leaks over time. Water damage from a leaky roof can be difficult and very expensive to reverse. If your roof is leaking, consider replacing or renovating it. A new basic asphalt roof will cost between $4,000 and $10,000.

The price of your roof will depend on the type of shingles and the square footage of the roof. The more the square foot your existing roof, the more expensive it will be to replace.

Your Kitchen Looks Old and Outdated

Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home. You prepare meals and cook numerous memories in your kitchen every day. An outdated kitchen will make your house feel old, dull, uninspiring, and boring.

If your kitchen looks outdated, plan a kitchen renovation in Edmonton. Your remodeling contractor will paint dated kitchen cabinets, open up the area, add a kitchen island, replace the flooring, and plan upgrades for a touch of kitchen elegance. Speak to a remodeling expert to discuss your project.

Your Paint Looks Dingy and Starts to Chip

When applied on a surface, paint creates a protective coating preventing the interior or exterior of the surface from deterioration. Paint protects walls from the elements, reducing wear and tear.

Dirty, chipping, and dingy paint can cause your areas to look unsightly, impacting the value of your home. A fresh coat of paint will breathe new life into a dull and uninspiring area.

Touch up your kitchen cabinets and other areas in your kitchen and bathroom. Freshly painted walls and baseboards will take years off your home.
