Remodeling vs Custom Home Building: Which One is Right?

Phil Myers - Tuesday, January 31, 2017

It’s the age-old homeowner's dilemma: do you remodel or build a new custom home? Knowing which one is right can be difficult. It doesn’t matter how much you love or hate your current home, remodeling or building is a big decision that can’t be made lightly. To help you make the decision, we’ve compiled a short list of reasons why you might consider remodeling or building new:


Reasons For Indianapolis Remodeling


  1. You don’t like the look of one room.

If it’s just a single room that you absolutely hate, then remodeling is probably a better option than building an entire home. A professional Indianapolis remodeler can take the room you don’t like and turn it into one you do. Maybe it’s knocking a wall out or retiling the floor. Whatever it is you don’t like can be turned into something you love.


  1. You need just a little bit more space.

Has your family grown a little bit? Maybe you’ve just been feeling a little cramped lately. Whatever your reason for needing a little bit more space, remodeling a section of your home can actually give you the space you’re looking for. Plus, if you can’t remodel for space, you can certainly add on to your existing home to make it more spacious.


  1. You love your home, but parts are outdated.

From outdated kitchen appliances to a shower that looks like it’s straight out of the 1970s, your home needs some updates. You don’t want to start from scratch because you love the layout of your home and the area you live in, but something needs to change. No one said remodeling your home has to be limited to one room. You can choose to remodel portions of 5 different rooms or every room in your home.


Reasons for Custom Home Building


  1. You’re ready for a lot more space.

Adding a room onto your home just isn’t going to give you the space you need. Building a custom home will allow you to determine exactly how much space you need and where you need it. Upgrade from two bedrooms to five. Build the home office you need. Add a lower level home theatre. Building a custom home allows you to determine just how much space you’ll have.


  1. You want custom features and major upgrades.

Adding custom features and major upgrades to your current home would require you to completely gut your home and start over. The cost and time of doing that just doesn’t make sense. A custom home would give you the features and upgrades you’re looking for without the maintenance of an older home.


  1. You want to live in a different area.

You’re ready for a change of scenery. Whether you want more land or want to move to a new school district or to a new state, building a custom home allows you to make the change.

There isn’t always a right or wrong answer when it comes to determining whether remodeling or building is right for you. Ultimately, it comes down to what you and your family needs and is looking for. Either way, the experts at Phil Myers are ready to help you remodel your current home or build the home of your dreams.
