Q. When is it better/more cost effective to bulldoze instead of renovate? When would you consider a home beyond repair?

A. That’s a difficult question, and really up to the homeowner. Sometimes it’s easier to start over and get rid of the layers of renovations that have been built up over time. It’s mostly about the foundation if it’s got a good foundation with decent walls, and you won't be touching the exterior walls much, then you might want to save it.
