Remodel & Renovation

Renovations and remodels have distinct definitions. A remodel alters the form of a space, such as adding a new shower to a bathroom, while a renovation focuses on restoring something old to good repair, like fixing a creaky floor.

Home improvement projects beyond maintenance and minor upgrades typically fall into these categories. While the terms are often used interchangeably, understanding their differences can help you decide whether you need to hire a professional for your project.

What Are Home Renovations?

A renovation project enhances a space without altering its structure or purpose.

It aims to make the area more attractive, pleasant, or functional, often on a smaller scale compared to a remodel.

Popular renovation projects include:

What Is Home Remodeling?

A remodel changes the structure of your house or changes the purpose of a space in your home.

This larger scope typically means a larger project.

  • A large-scale kitchen remodel
  • A bathroom remodel or addition
  • Enlarging a closet
  • Adding on to a main bedroom
  • Finishing an attic or basement
  • Building a composite deck

Home Remodels Often Require a Professional

A full-scale remodel often includes demolition, relocating load-bearing walls, and installing new
plumbing or electrical systems, tasks typically requiring a licensed professional due to local
codes. Given the significant time and financial investment, it’s advisable to enlist experienced
professionals for remodeling projects.

If homeowners with advanced DIY skills undertake some tasks, they must adhere to codes, obtain permits, and ensure inspections are carried out.
