7 Signs Your Austin Home Needs Remodeling

There are many reasons why spring is an ideal time for home renovation. You can take advantage of the nice weather and have your renovations completed more quickly. This allows you to use the new additions and updates during summer gatherings of family and friends rather than stressing out over the upgrades. Building supply stores often try to eliminate the previous season’s inventory by offering special promotions in the spring. As a result, you may be able to save significantly on building supplies.


Are you and your family ready for a home remodeling Austin project home this year? Is your house in a condition that it can wait another year, or should you take care of it now, so you don’t need to worry about it later? Ultimately, only you make that determination, but here are some signs that you should go ahead with the renovation project.


1. Austin Home Remodeling Could Provide Some Much-Needed Space


It is a simple fact that life changes, sometimes according to a plan and sometimes unexpectedly. As your children get older, they may need more space and more privacy. Perhaps the room is no longer sufficient to facilitate your current lifestyle. In either case, an Austin home remodeling project could provide more space in one of two ways. You could either add a new addition to your home or make a change to the existing layout.


2. Your Home May be Outdated

Home fashions go through gradual changes, and your home may feel like it belongs to a previous decade. While a vintage home may be desirable, a dated home is not. Hestia can bring your home up to date while retaining the character you fell in love with in the first place.


A dated home isn’t only an aesthetic consideration – old appliances may be costing you money by using too much energy or water. Replacing these can increase overall efficiency, preserving precious natural resources, and saving you more money in the long run.


3. Austin Home Remodeling Is Necessary Because of Deterioration


Maybe the problem extends beyond the look of your fixtures or the efficiency of your appliances. Perhaps there is a serious problem with your home’s structural integrity. The following may be evidence of serious structural issues:


  • Crumbling foundation
  • Leaking roof
  • Loose floorboards
  • Drainage problems
  • Unexplained cracks

Have these problems checked out by a professional who can tell you whether renovations are needed right now, or if not right now, how long you can wait.


4. You Could See a Return on Investment


There are two ways that renovations on your Austin home can give you a good return. If you plan to stay in your home for many years, that gives you more time to enjoy the updates that you make. On the other hand, if you plan to sell your home soon, you can still see a return on your investment by prioritizing changes that add value to your home.


5. Austin Home Renovations Can Help You Use Space More Efficiently

Maybe the problem isn’t that you don’t have enough space but that you cannot make full use of your room. By renovating your home, you may be able to make your space more functional so that you can get the most out of it. For example, you could remove walls to create larger rooms or a more open concept.


6. You Have the Necessary Funds


Before you commit to a significant home renovation, you should be sure that you have the means to pay for it. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to pay out of pocket, though. You may be able to secure a loan against your home’s equity to obtain the necessary financing.


7. You Have Good Reasons to Stay


An alternative to renovating your home is selling it and moving somewhere else, but this doesn’t always make sense. Perhaps you like the schools in your neighborhood, and your children are excelling. Maybe you are near family members or have become close to your neighbors. Perhaps the home holds so many significant memories for you that you can’t bear to let go. Practical concerns and emotional attachments are perfectly valid reasons to consider home renovations rather than a move.
