Do you carry on a discussion about remodeling with energy savings, retrofitting existing residential buildings?
Do you carry on a discussion about remodeling with energy savings, retrofitting existing residential buildings? The new stuff is great but we seem to have to make significant compromises for existing properties.
In my residential construction business, homes can have 20-25% of each window in trouble. Repair and add storms or replace, kits or units?
Also, when retrofitting basements I understand the insulation details for walls but how should the existing concrete floor be handled in a 1950-60’s home? The basement will remain a basement, usable space other than storage anticipated.
