New Builds versus Renovations

When looking to invest in your next building project, you may be trying to decide on building new or renovating a new or existing space. Whilst location, budget, timeliness and ability to compromise are all contributing factors, you may be wondering what exactly are the key motives for investing in these projects?

Bell’s Decor are one of the south’s leading experts in contract decorating and as specialist new build decorators, we believe we are best placed to explain the reasons for investing in either a new build or a renovation project, along with how we can provide painting and decorating services to support either.

Is it cheaper to build new or renovate?

The main attraction of a renovation project comes in the form of cheaper property prices. Residences that require considerable work tend to be available at below market rates. However, this may not be the case for particularly old buildings that need significant rework.

Other reasons to invest in a renovation project

Quicker than a new build

Renovations can be comparatively quicker than new builds, as many of the necessary building elements are already in place (as opposed to starting from scratch when designing a new construction).

Again, this is caveated as older and historical builders may actually take longer to renovate than building new due to the potentially harmful building materials which need to be alleviated. There’s also the consideration that a protected status may require a particularly sympathetic renovation.

Reasons to invest in a new build

Modern Design Options

New builds can feature the latest and greatest technology available, such as ‘smart home’ layouts. You will also benefit from having the control of the overall end result and how the building will function. With new builds, you can take into consideration all aspects of your project build – size, layout, energy efficiencies and parking.


As new builds have to comply with the most up-to-date building regulations, they are far more environmentally friendly than older properties. As well as prospective owners benefiting from lower energy bills, you will be able to endorse an eco-friendly development that cares about the environment its first time buyers live in.
