    We’re currently renovating our home that we’ve owned for 20 years, the previous owners were only here for 4 years from new so nothing was done until we moved in

    We gutted our cottage as it hadn’t been touched by the previous owners for a few of decades and had suffered. Fortunately old features had been covered over, so we could bring them back into the open. Smiling at point three. There is always the unexpected with an old house. I’m glad we took on the project. #mmbc

    Before any renovations, check the entire plumbing system in your home and do some repairs if needed. It really needs to be done before any home remodelings, since it may require opening walls and ceilings, and lifting carpets and floorboards to access pipes. Even though replacing pipes and plumbing fixtures can be quite costly, it is worth the investment. The old and faulty plumbing poses a great threat to your property.

    Dampness is a serious enemy both for your health. so it is for your property. This can cause mold and mildew to grow on walls, ceilings and windows. As for health, exposure to mold can cause several health issues such as throat irritation, nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, cough, and wheezing, as well as skin irritation in some cases.
    If there is such a problem in your house, first of all, consider upgrading your air conditioner filter to a pleated filter with a MERV rating in the 7 to 12 range. These filters offer adequate filtration and remove common contaminants including mold and mildew spores.

    When renovating your home, choose eco-friendly materials. We are required to think more and more about how and where we live. Our homes have a huge impact on the planet, and we need to consider building homes that maximize efficiency while taking little from the environment. And don’t think that sustainable, eco-friendly homes equal boring homes — it is quite the opposite. Home architecture trends can follow the main idea, like sustainability, while including classical home features and architectural styles and incorporating vibrant home decor.
