Renovation or remodel: What’s the difference? While both terms are often used interchangeably, they are actually two different types of construction.
Renovations improve, update, or modernize an existing space with cosmetic changes.
For example: Renovating a retail strip center unit that is a hair salon to a new hair salon could include refreshing the paint or tile and/or changing plumbing fixtures/sinks; however, all plumbing and electrical systems will remain in their original location.
Renovations help to ensure that the first impression you make upon viewing a property is a positive impression on your company. It is common for a larger company (i.e. General Motors) to require continual renovations every few years to maintain the brands image.
Remodels change the use or the layout/flow of a space through demolition and/or construction.
For example: Remodeling a retail strip center unit that is a hair salon to become an office suite could include removing plumbing fixtures/sinks or adding walls to subdivide the space.
Remodeling your existing space can help your business maximize the efficiency of the square footage you are currently in. Remodels take special skills as the contractor must know how to maintain the structural integrity of the building when altering the layout within the space.
