1. Structural Issues and Foundational Integrity
Structural flaws in the building and foundation that are beyond repair, can be one of the biggest deciding factors when it comes to demolition. If you are noticing cracks in the foundation or continuous mold and water damage in various areas of the building, more often than not - it will be more effective and efficient to rebuild, as opposed to renovating.
Complete demolitions ensure that you don’t leave any structural flaws or possible environmental and safety hazards behind, so you can step re-build and rest assured that you won’t have any of the same issues in the future.
2. Poorly Maintained Buildings
If a building is not regularly and properly maintained, the neglect will eventually cause the
building to become inhabitable. Once this happens, restoring the building to a safe standard is near impossible and extremely time-consuming, and expensive. This is where demolition becomes the best decision, to ensure that the neglected building doesn’t become a safety hazard to people or the environment.
3. Budget-friendly and cost-effective
If you’re planning on making intricate and vast extensions and additions to the current property, chances are great that demolishing and rebuilding might be the more budget-friendly way to go than remodeling. Not only does it save you money, but it might even save you a lot of time on architectural plans, as you wouldn’t have to work around the old design and foundation.
4. You’re planning on selling
If you’re planning on selling your property, it might be worth researching the market value of the property as a vacant lot. Frequently, buyers jump at the opportunity to buy vacant lots if they're looking to build their own custom homes. If this is the case, your home might decrease the overall value of the plot.
