Home Renovation vs Home Maintenance

First let’s differentiate home renovation from home maintenance and repair. Home owners must make general repairs to their home on an as needed basis, while home renovation is the remodelling or upgrading of the home. Where the two services meet is when home renovation will be done and there is also a need for maintenance of the home in the same area of the renovation. When renovating an area that also could use maintenance, you should always choose to compete the maintenance as well. An example would be if you have a crack in a basement wall, you should properly repair and seal the crack before refinishing the basement to avoid possible water damage after competing the finished basement.

Typical home maintenance tasks would include plumbing repairs, painting, deck re-staining, drywall repair, roof shingling, and window repairs. Adding a new wall, upgrading flooring, countertops or adding a skylight would be considered renovation. One can and often does lead to the other. For example, flooring that requires repair my instead trigger a decision to upgrade the flooring as a timely investment opportunity in the home.


Upgrading A Home For Lifestyle Reasons vs Investment Reasons.

Sometime a lifestyle upgrade is also a good Return On Investment upgrade. But sometime lifestyle upgrades are just that, an improvement for your family lifestyle that may not result in a great investment return. Each homeowner has to weigh the pros and cons of lifestyle and potential ROI and then place their own value on it.


Some Lifestyle Upgrades That May Not Result In A Great ROI

Swimming pool installation

In ground swimming pools can be expensive, take up a lot of space, require considerable maintenance, and may not be desirable to some younger families when reselling your home. Your family however may be avid swimming pool aficionados and would therefore get great lifestyle use of a new pool. On the other hand, when reselling your home, some families with young children may see a swimming pool as an added expense that also puts their younger children at risk.

Over building for your neighbourhood

Keep home renovations and additions in line with the home values of your neighbourhood, overbuilding your home out of the general price range of other homes in the area will not result in dramatic returns unless the rest of the homes keep up with yours. Neighbourhoods affect price and returns will be affected by the general values of other homes near yours.

Uneven Remodeling

Installing marble flooring in your kitchen will impress and have the potential to increase your home value but if you leave all the washrooms with vinyl-flooring and cheap plastic counters all you are doing is drawing attention to the homes weaknesses. Instead of expensive marble flooring, change all the countertops in the kitchen and washrooms to granite for a more complete and balanced home presentation.

Wall to Wall Carpeting

Wall to wall carpeting is expensive and not always a welcome addition to a prospective homeowner. Potential buyers may ask themselves what is it hiding? How clean is it? There is no denying that quality wood flooring is a more desirable upgrade and a better investment than wall to wall carpeting.
