Should I Remodel My Existing Home or Build a New Custom Home?

Should I Remodel My Existing Home or Build a New Custom Home?You are ready to make a change in your home. You come to our builders at Nelson and Son Construction Service in Denver and ask us, should I remodel my existing home or build a new custom home?

First of all, you’ve come to the right place. We can sit down with you and discuss your options. When you come to the decision that meets your needs, we can build you a beautiful new home or remodel your current home to match your dream.

It’s an important decision and you should take things like your location, budget, home size, and environmental concerns into consideration. Here’s some food for thought:


Location. Location. Location. Do you love the neighborhood you live in? Do you want a new start somewhere else? What about your commute, your neighbors, your children’s school?

These are important factors when determining whether you want to remodel the home you’re living in to get the function and style you are looking for, or if you want to design a new home in a new location. If you have a family, this may be a discussion for everyone.


Let’s face it, money is usually the biggest factor to consider when deciding if you want to remodel your current house or build a new home. You need to consider what each decision will cost and if you can afford it. It will also depend on what shape your current house is in and the goals you have for the remodel. It’s not always cheaper to remodel.

Sometimes you just want to start over and put your needs and wants into the design for a new home. Depending on your location, new home prices may be more reasonable.

Some remodels just can’t get you what you want. Do you want a bigger yard, a different view, more bedrooms, or a basement? Our builders can sit down with you and talk with you about your priorities and how we can achieve them.


Does your current home no longer fit your needs because it is too small? Whether your family has grown to include more children or your parents have moved in with you, we can take a look at how to expand your current house to meet your needs.

But sometimes the best way to get the square footage you are looking for is to build a new home and get it exactly the way you want it.


The environmentally friendly qualities of homes are more important to many families these days, whether it’s remodeling your kitchen and using energy-efficient appliances or using recycled materials.

Building a new home is a great opportunity to incorporate things like a high-efficiency HVAC system, energy-efficient wall and ceiling assemblies, and energy-saving appliances and technology which can help reduce utility costs. Whether you decide to remodel or build a new home, it can provide you with the chance to reduce your impact on the environment.
