We coordinate the workplace for minimal disruption.

 

As your Energy Renovator and Project Manager, we coordinate the work and any trade contractors to fit into your schedule as best as possible. We stay in constant contact with our clients.

Energy renovations can usually be done in stages and most of the time do not require the homeowner to vacate their home during the duration of construction.

 

scale

We are involved throughout the whole process.

 

We apply for all required permits, eligible grants and rebates, prepare the site for any demolition necessary, set up scaffolding, replace windows and doors, install insulation on exterior walls and in attics, and advise on whether your site is a good candidate for solar PV system.

Our Licensed HVAC contractor will suggest options for you on your heating and ventilation needs.

As we are a Licensed Residential Builder and carry Home Warranty Insurance we are able to construct any additions to your existing home you may be planning.

 

STEPS TO ACHIEVE

a high-performance, energy-efficient house:

 

01 CALL

Call us (toll free) for a free consultation. We will setup an appointment to come inspect your home.




02 INSPECT

During this consultation, we’ll go over your issues and then do an interior and exterior inspection of the house.
There are a number of reasons why a home may be using more energy than necessary. The whole house must be assessed as one unit as all components are integral to each other. As an example, replacing windows will be not effective unless leaks in the attic are sealed.



03 PLAN

We will then make recommendations of the most effective solutions, the order in which the work should be completed for maximum benefit, as well as available eligible rebates.



04 QUOTE

Once a plan of action is agreed upon, we will provide a quotation and time estimate. Upon acceptance of the quotation, we will proceed with the work.
