What is the difference between renovations and refurbishments?


A refurbishment is the process of repairing or redecorating something on your property.  It is primarily influenced by aesthetics and tries to enhance the property's appearance. As a consequence, it's considerably more limited than a renovation, and it involves securing the structure of your home before you start. 

House refurbishments are also less costly than renovations, mainly based on the nature of the changes that are required to be made. Our builders highly recommend that you talk with many businesses to guarantee that you receive the best deal.

Here are a few examples of renovations: 

- Getting the exterior of your property repainted  

- Repainting the rooms in your home 

- Plastering 

- Decorating 

- Carrying out major repair work


A renovation involves transforming your property, this could involve altering the structure or building an extension. They are mostly focused on adding to what already exists. When compared to a refurbishment, a  renovation generally takes longer and costs more since it involves more complicated stages. 

Renovations may also be used to swiftly repair and enhance any damaged areas of a home. It's particularly beneficial if you're going to change the construction of a home to conform with current regulations.

The following are examples of renovations:

- Adding a new wall or knocking down an old one 

- Building an extension 

- Loft extensions 

- Extending the ceiling
