Nowadays, according to the Housing Industry of Australia, nearly a third of the detached homes are actually a knockdown rebuild. Since renovating comes with constraints – whether it’s an existing structure or bad orientation – building from scratch becomes the most efficient solution.

Why knockdown rebuild is better than renovating your home?

Over the past decade, Australia has witnessed an increased interest in knockdown rebuilds. But is knockdown rebuild a good idea after all? If you are amongst the homeowners who love their neighbourhood but want to completely change the look and feel of their old home, then yes! Knockdown rebuild is for you! Today, find out why this option would make sense (and cents!) for you, too.

Then it might be time for you to start thinking about knocking down your home and rebuilding it!

What are the benefits of a knockdown rebuild?

Since renovating comes with constraints – whether it’s an existing structure or bad orientation – building from scratch becomes the most efficient solution.

Here are more reasons why knockdown rebuild may be exactly what you’re looking for:

1. Cost-effectiveness

First and foremost, one of the biggest motivators behind the decision to rebuild is cost. While many (wrongly) assume rebuilding is going to break the bank, in reality, it’s far more effective than other options. Take, for instance, renovations, that can cost up to 20% more than building a new home on the same site due to limitations such as working around existing features.

2. No nasty surprises

Furthermore, there’s a lot of guesswork required when undertaking renovations or extensions. In fact, you may have to deal with shoddy foundations or dodgy electrics, plumbing or construction once you start working. Then, you have no choice but to find the extra cash and cover the additional repair costs.

With a knockdown rebuild, on the other hand, you’re essentially working from a blank canvas. Therefore, it’s far less likely to come across this kind of issues.

3. A brand new energy-efficient home, perfect for you and your family

Rebuilding your home means you’ll finally be able to add modern designs and technologies to an otherwise dated home. Whether you go for solar panels or high energy efficiency rating appliances, this will help reduce your environmental footprint.

4. It’s your way, in every way

From the orientation, floor plan to design, the chance to create a home that is ‘totally you’ is highly appealing. Not to mention you will have complete control over every building aspect from start to finish. So, what are you waiting for? Stop dreaming are start (re)building!
