New build homes are greener and more sustainable than houses built in previous decades, they were designed and constructed for very different generations, with completely different expectations in terms of lifestyle, comfort and energy efficiency.
The homes that are suitable for demolition are usually detached houses on generous plots, for obvious reasons demolishing a terraced property isn’t as easy!
Demolishing a home isn’t that expensive, most of the cost is in getting rid of the waste. If the plot of land can be put to better use it might be a good idea but would very much depend on the local authority and planning rules.
Do you think you should renovate before demolition?
