Everyone has different reasons for wanting to renovate. Sometimes it's the simple need for change. Other times, the motivation is more practical. If you wake up one day with a leak in the basement and a water-stained ceiling, you know you have to act fast. In general, there are three types of renovation: lifestyle, retrofit, and maintenance and repair. Lifestyle renovations improve your home and your way of life. They might involve building a sun room for pleasure, or converting unused attic space into living quarters to meet your changing needs. Retrofit projects usually focus on your home's shell or mechanical systems. Examples are upgrading your insulation, replacing your furnace, or putting on new siding. Maintenance and repair renovations protect the investment you have made in your house through activities such as caulking windows, reshingling your roof, or replacing your eavestroughs.
