When it comes to home improvements, one of the most popular choices is to have recladding in Auckland. When thinking about adding extra insulation and natural stone to your existing home, it may feel like a big challenge to try and fit it all yourself.
There are different styles of recladding in Auckland, which means that there is a wide choice of products for you to consider. The first thing to look at is whether your property needs an entirely new roof. If it doesn’t already have a roof which is in a satisfactory condition then perhaps an upgrade is necessary. For some properties the benefits of having a completely new roof over your head far outweigh the additional costs. However, if your property does require a re-roof, you may well find that there are several benefits from doing so. Here are some of DBS residential designers in Auckland who specialise in the installation of timber cladding panels and roofs:
Wood cladding panels are a great way to improve the overall look of your property. The panels can be painted to match any colour scheme you wish and they come in many different sizes to suit the conditions of your building. Wood cladding windows also offer good ventilation and are very durable against the elements. One of the advantages of selecting DBS residential windows and roofs is that they are virtually maintenance-free, even when treated to an extreme weather condition such as heavy rainfall and high winds. However, most contractors in Auckland are able to offer a free initial quote on recladding in Auckland – so you get an indication of what’s on offer and may decide to go with a different builder who offers a more customised design. With some planning, it’s possible to achieve an attractive outcome that is as easy to maintain as other types of stone or insulation.
If your property suffers from a lack of sunlight then adding a skylight or double glazing would be a good idea. A skylight or double glazing panel is an insulated glass that creates the appearance of daylight through a translucent membrane. Skylights can provide natural light for day and can be incorporated into a skylight system with the added advantage of reducing costs associated with ventilation. Another benefit from DBS residential window and roofing products is that they are energy efficient. Some designs can have up to 15% more insulation than traditional building materials, which means you could potentially save money on your heating bills over the long term.
Of course, adding a layer of insulation is not the only way that you can improve the appearance and value of your property. With a wooden frame and a good set of locking mouldings, your house record for re-sale will look modern and appealing, while offering your neighbours and potential buyers peace of mind that the house is safe and secure. When choosing a style for your house record for sale in Auckland, it is a good idea to look at what different options are available. There are a number of different styles including casement windows, flat roofs, gable fronts, hipped roofing and many others.
You may want to re-zone the entire house so that all your neighbours have the same space. In this case you would want to ensure that your new roofing installation goes with the existing roof, but you may also want to create a different surface that is aesthetically pleasing to you. In this case, it is important to talk to professionals to discuss your options and find out whether you need to seek a permit, especially if your area has a building control board. This is especially true in areas where high rises are permitted. Consult DBS Residential today!
In terms of creating resale value, one of the best features of adding new windows and re-cladding the ceiling is that it can dramatically increase the amount of square feet of living area that you can add onto your property. It is true that it can cost some more money to re-carpet your ceiling and windows, but in return you will receive a larger space for your home to live in, along with a significant increase in the resale value. In most cases, people who are looking to buy a house with the intention of reselling it to choose a house with additional square footage on the basis that it adds additional value. The same is also true when people are looking to purchase a home that they intend on renting out.
In short, if your house is not currently insulated properly, it is a good idea to contact a professional to help you install proper insulation. In some cases, however, Auckland re-cladding is not required, so don’t let that put you off. If your roof or windows aren’t insulated properly, you could be paying extra for heat that you could get elsewhere. It is also worth remembering that a re-clad roof will mean that there may be parts of your roof which remain uncovered during the construction process, which could increase your building costs by a substantial amount. However, if you’re intent is simply on getting a higher resale value for your house and making your house feel a whole lot better to live in, than adding recladding in Auckland is worth the effort.
