New Construction versus Reconstruction
You’ve heard it all before: kitchens and bathrooms sell houses. Kitchens are the heart of the home. Your bathroom is your sanctuary. We get it! Good kitchens and bathrooms are important. But, they are also expensive. If you are thinking about putting your home on the market, you have to consider what condition your kitchen and bathrooms are in. Then you have to decide if an Atlanta home renovation is worth the effort.
Construction is simply the process of constructing: completely gutting your old kitchen and bathrooms and constructing them from the floor up. Reconstruction is restoring to an earlier state. This is the least expensive route of the two and simply means saving existing fixtures in your kitchen and bathrooms and restoring them to their former glory. The differences between the two are obvious, but the time and money spent are even more apparent.
If you want to sell your home and you know that new construction to your rooms are going to be not only costly, but time consuming, you might want to consider the alternative: reconstruction. Reconstruction is basically a remodel without the hefty price tag of a redesign. If your bathtubs are designed nicely and aren’t extremely damaged, why not consider refinishing them?
Refinishing is the process in which your old fixture, such as your tub, is stripped of it’s old coating, checked for damages such as cracks or dents and then repaired, and then refinished with a new, durable coating. Kitchen cabinets and countertops, as well as tile, can all benefit from this process. Changing the color and texture of your fixtures is as easy as ever with the refinishing process. In the long run, this will save you tons of money and loads of time. Instead of weeks to gut your rooms and remodel them, you are done with this process in 1 to 2 days and can get your house on the market sooner than later.
Resurfacing is quicker, cheaper and no mess!
Not everyone can refinish their fixtures, such as the bathtub. There are many DIY kits on the market but, unless you are extremely proficient in the process, chances are, the first few times you try are going to lead to disaster. Who wants that headache? This is definitely one project in your home that you want to rely on a professional rather than the undertaking of it yourself. A refinishing professional knows the process and has most likely refinished hundreds of bathtubs, tile, countertops and cabinets. What’s even better, if the job isn’t done to your satisfaction, a good professional will fix it and make it right. If you attempt it by yourself, you are most likely stuck with what you’ve done or you’ll be calling the professional in anyway. So save yourself some aggravation.
