How do I know if I need exterior renovation?
Most of our customers spend quite a bit of time debating whether or not they should pull the trigger on a renovation. Your home is likely ready for an exterior renovation if you:
Notice your paint is chipping or flaking
If your paint isn’t adhering to your siding or you notice other signs of disrepair – like curling shingles, damaged gutters or degrading window sills – these are tell-tale signs that you might need to renovate.
See that your home seems out-of-date
Feel like your home is just looking dated, or like your neighbors are modernising while your home is stuck in a previous decade? Renovating your exterior is the quickest way to get your home feeling new.
Notice that your exterior doesn’t match your interior
Have you gotten a new style of decor or renovated at all on the inside of your home – but noticed that your exterior doesn’t reflect these changes? This is another clear sign that your exterior needs an update.
Plan to put your home on the market
Street appeal is extremely important, and many prospective buyers will form an initial opinion of your home as soon as they drive up to the lot. It’s important to give them the best first impression possible – and that may call for a renovation.
Your home is drafty
Finally, if you notice drafts coming in from your windows and doors, you could be wasting major energy. A renovation can not only help your home become more sustainable, but also increase its retail value.
What is the cost of an exterior renovation?
This is the million-dollar question (thankfully, the cost of an exterior renovation isn’t that high).
That said, the cost of any renovation will vary significantly based on a variety of factors, including materials used, the size of the space, and the complexity of the design. That said, here are some ballpark exterior renovation figures:
Garden and Deck Renovation
$2,000 – $10,000
$10,000 for a 2-3 bedroom home
Painting with Recladding and Insulation
$35,000 for a 2-3 bedroom home
Roof Ventilation Replacement
$2,000 – $5,000
$10,000 – $20,000
How long does it take to complete an exterior renovation?
The amount of time that an exterior renovation will take also depends on a variety of factors, including:
- The size of the space
- The extent of the renovations (if it is purely cosmetic, medium-sized, or major)
- The materials used
- The complexity of the design
That said, you can expect to follow a series of steps with your renovation:
Phase 01: Making a plan
When you make your renovation plan, you determine what services you want done and how you will go about getting everything done, meeting regulations in your area, and more. This step itself can take 1-3 months.
Phase 02: Set a budget
Next, you’ll have to set your budget. This should include contractor fees and deposits, materials and transportation costs, labour costs, and unexpected costs. Setting this budget accurately could also take a couple of weeks.
Phase 03: Find the right contractor
You’ll want to find an exterior remodel contractor who is:
- Fairly priced
- Licensed and insured
- Good at communicating
This can also take a significant amount of time, from weeks to months.
Phase 04: Execute
Finally, your team will execute the remodel. This can include:
- Roof and gutter work
- Deck and garden
The total time required will vary on which of these you’re doing in your home. That said, more cosmetic work can take anywhere from 1-3 months. If you are adding a garage or completing a more significant renovation, it can take 3 months to a year.
How can you identify a professional renovator?
When you’re looking for a contractor for your renovation, you’ll want to make sure that you find someone who ticks the following boxes.
Comes highly recommended
Reviews and recommendations don’t lie. Ask your friends who they used for their home renovation project and be sure to look at reviews online and on social media. This will give you an accurate sense of who you’re dealing with and how they work. You can view our testimonials here.
Has the proper permits
You need to make sure that the contractor that you choose has the proper permits for the job. That’s the only way you’ll avoid fines or regulatory violations.
The contractor’s prices should be fair, and they should not ask you to put a huge chunk of the money down up-front.
Is clear about expectations
This isn’t just about expectations for the renovation, but also about expectations in your home. How will they keep it clean? What hours will they work? Will their team clean up after themselves each day? It is important that the contractor your choose is willing to lay out these ground rules ahead of time.
Can provide verified insurance information
Contractors should offer business insurance in case of a certain accidents or weather events that could cause damage to your home.
Getting a clear answer on these questions will at least help you determine whether or not you’re on the right track with your proposed renovator.
What warranties do you offer?
We offer a 20-year workmanship warranty on all of our projects. We also guarantee that we are:
- Fully licensed and insured
- Able to keep to your budget
- Equipped to complete a fully customized project
- Able to offer detailed technical knowledge
