  • Is It Better To Build New or to Renovate?

    Building a new home or renovating an existing one are both great options, and it really comes down to what fits your specific needs and preferences. At Hughes Elite Builders, we offer both services and can help you consider the pros and cons to make the best decision for you and your family.

    Some benefits of building a new home include having complete control over the design and layout, as well as potential energy savings. This can ensure that we build a home which is completely upto date with modern trends while also incorporating current building innovations such as smart home technology.

    On the other hand, renovating an existing home can be more cost-effective (pending a site inspection with us) and allow you to add value to your property or make the most of an ideal location / block of land. It’s important to keep in mind that the renovation process can be disruptive and there may be limitations to what can be done with the existing layout.

    No matter what you decide, you will be in safe hands working with an experience builder like us to help you get a better understanding of the costs, time frames and building constraints. We’re here to help you create the home of your dreams.
