Operating out of Kidlington, our building company covers locations in Oxfordshire and the neighbouring regions. We have direct access to our key service areas including Aylesbury, Banbury, Bicester, Brackley, Buckingham, Oxford and Witney.
On this page, we take a closer look at the variations between renovations and refurbishments. The interchangeable nature of these terms means our builders and tradespeople must know exactly what type of work you want, what you want to achieve with it, and the kind of approach you expect us to take.
Interpreting concepts remains vital to our aim of achieving 100% client satisfaction on every job we bring to completion. This starts by using more than 30 years of industry experience to help you make the right choice from the outset.
Renovations and Refurbishments | The Key Differences
Understanding the varying qualities of property renovations and refurbishments makes a noticeable difference to the final appearance of our completed work. At first glance, it may seem difficult to distinguish these differences, but the approach our building company takes to modifications at your home ultimately depends on whether the work falls into the category of property renovations or that of refurbishments.
A renovation, often referred to by some builders and tradespeople as remodelling work, involves the conversion of existing living space, the replacement of damaged features or, on larger projects, the full design and construction of a room addition or even an extension.
Ultimately, property renovations improve damaged homes in Aylesbury, Bicester, Oxford and the surrounding areas or those in need for modernisation.
Generally speaking, refurbishments primarily differ in scale. They usually focus on the restoration of a certain area or an individual item. This includes the plastering, painting and overall decoration of a room as well as restoring a good condition with general maintenance work.
By keeping scale in mind, understanding the differences becomes much easier.
Choosing the Right Service
DJT Builders (Oxfordshire) Ltd always encourages homeowners to think long and hard about the type of service they require. Like any reputable building company, we remain on hand to help in any decision-making process. If you only need to restore the condition of a single room or want to give your home a basic makeover – that’s a refurbishment. If you want more extensive repairs and rectification work, or if the job requires structural or construction work, these are property renovations.
Renovations hold popularity with property owners looking to the long-term. This type of work optimises original investments over the years. Refurbishments, on the other hand, make an affordable short-term solution for letting out a property or living in it yourself.
Finally, property renovations often involve builders and tradespeople creating a new build within an existing structure. They usually start from a position of greater damage or dilapidation and, as a result, have a stronger emphasis on compliancy with Building Regulations.
Whichever service you require in Aylesbury, Bicester, Oxford and the surrounding areas, our building company creates stylish, comfortable and practical living spaces in line with any budget and specification.
