You might have heard the terms property restoration, renovation, remodel and repair quite often and even interchangeably. But what is the difference between them?
Here is some insight from RH Renovation NYC.
Property restoration is a process that returns a building to the condition that it was and the appearance that it had at the very beginning when it first started to be used. Restoration of a property includes any and all repairs to the walls, especially if there are holes in them, they need to be filled in. In addition, it entails repairs to old fixtures. If the fixtures cannot be repaired, they can be replaced with replicas that look exactly like the originals. In addition, wooden floors need to be refinished and put back to their original glory.
Property restoration is a great and advantageous process as it saves more energy, money, and resources. It is however more appropriate for houses that require small repairs and still have a strong structure to keep them up.
Repairs might still be needed even after restoration is complete. As long as repairs do not change the look and the function of the feature then they do not interfere with restoration.
If you want to give your home a fresh new look however you have to opt for a remodel or a replacement of many features in the house. That could include a fresh paint on the walls, a new layout when it comes to floor plans, and replacement of kitchen and bathroom fixtures that can look completely different from the old ones.
