Construction & Design
There's no long-term investment quite like a home. Where as a car may last you ten or twenty years, with some investments in maintenance - refurbishment or renovation, your house will last a lot more than a lifetime. But how do you know when to refurbish and when to renovate?
Most experts will tell you the golden rule for deciding between renovation and refurbishment is: "if it isn't broken, don't replace it". For those unfamiliar with the terminology,
*changes in structure,
*the replacement of a defective item or area of your home,
*conversions and/or extensions,
*while refurbishment involves:
*fixing the troubled area or item,
*and generally speaking, restore to freshness of appearance or good condition of the house.
