Tips and tricks for sustainable home renovation

Home renovation, especially when done on an extended scale, takes a lot of time, money and effort. More often than not, the main concern of homeowners is to complete the project as quickly as possible without breaking the bank and achieve exactly the design that they had in mind. However, one aspect that gets neglected is through what means renovations are done and how they impact the environment. Repainting the house walls or building a new annex will probably sound insignificant, but the fact is that your choice of materials and how you dispose of leftovers has a massive impact on the environment. Here are some tips to help you renovate responsibly and reduce the environmental footprint of your project.

Eco-friendly debris disposal

 

If your renovations project involves demolishing walls or even building an annex from scratch, you’ve probably contacted a professional company for telehandler hire. But did you know that you should also inquire about responsible debris disposal? During the renovations, you will have to get rid of considerable amounts of garbage, but not in the traditional way, because this can seriously harm the environment. Instead, contact a contractor that can remove the debris and take it to a location where it can be reused or disposed of safely.

 

Switch to green products

 

With all the environmental regulations and global interest in eco-friendly alternatives, more and more brands now sell green renovation materials. This will cost a bit more than your traditional options, but you are gaining a lot of benefits in the long run: in addition to the fact that you are helping the planet, you are also creating a safer environment for your family. Sustainable materials and products such as low voc paints do not contain pollutants or hazardous substances, so your health will not be affected.

 

Insulate your home

 

Home insulation is an all your round sustainable solution that not only helps the environment, but also provides a considerable return on investment. By insulating the house walls, you create just the right temperature both in summer and in the winter. Therefore, you won’t have to rely on HVAC appliances as often and your energy bills will be lower. Most homeowners are familiar with the benefits of home insulation, but it’s important to look at this process from an eco-friendly perspective. Discuss your project with an experienced contractor, to make sure that the materials used are sustainable and that the insulation layer is has just the right thickness.
