Find out what you need to know about how to decide whether to rebuild, expand, or remodel.

When it comes to making changes to your commercial property you’re faced with lots of options. From building a custom structure to remodeling your structure to adding on to your current structure, you must make the decision that is right for your business. Every option has its pros and cons. Check out these tips to help you decide what’s best for your property and your business.

New Construction

Building your commercial property from the ground up allows you the freedom to customize your building to your specific needs. However, new construction is expensive and time intensive due to higher permit fees, soils & environmental testing and possible site improvements like roads or traffic lights surrounding your property. Finding the right land for your building can take some time.


As your business grows, sometimes you need extra space. When it comes to your property, expanding your space can help you accommodate business growth. While you may be able to keep your business operating during construction, sometimes adding on can be costlier than tearing down & starting from the ground up. There are pros and cons to explore before deciding to expand your current property.


When it comes to updating your space, remodeling has its benefits. When you remodel your commercial property, the project is usually completed more quickly and tends to be more affordable. Some hidden costs of a remodel could include bringing old buildings up to code and unforeseen conditions that require repairs, like dry rot or asbestos. Reconfiguring your existing space can increase usable square footage, while adding an updated look & feel to take your business into the future.
