Carlton Home Renovations And Extensions Projects

At some point, most homeowners will be faced with the question of whether to move or stay when their existing home no longer fulfils their needs. There are as many reasons to stay as there are to move on, however, if you have taken a long time to find the ideal location for your lifestyle there is a lot to gain by renovating or extending your home rather than going through the whole process again.

Circumstances in our lives cause changes that impel us to either bring our environment in alignment or abandon our location to find a better one. If you are happy with your lifestyle and the community you live in but your house no longer fulfils its purpose it makes sense to renovate or extend your home rather than uprooting and moving away from your comfortable and established home.

A home extension can add that extra space you need in the form of a bedroom, extra bathroom, or family room when your family expands. A major downside of moving to a new house is the immense costs involved in the sales process in addition to the money you may need to spend on getting your house ready for the market.

Another thing to consider is the stress factor. Selling and moving to a new home can be one of the most stressful experiences one can endure in life which is why many people choose to look for other alternatives before taking the plunge. If there are children involved it becomes even more stressful as they may have to give up established friendships and abandon their familiar surroundings in their community and at school.
