Depending on the project, as a comparison to moving or rebuilding the budget for renovating is normally more affordable.
Also if you are planning on renovating or remodelling your home then this is the ideal time to review your energy situation. You will have to adhere to building regulations anyway, so going beyond the minimum standard, and making your home as energy efficient as you can, is a sensible decision. The more energy efficient you can make your home now, the less it will cost to heat in the future. It is also likely to make your home more saleable in the future.
Building regulations set minimum standards for the design and construction of buildings to ensure the safety and health for people in or about those buildings. The exact rules vary across the UK, with England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland having different interpretations, so once we know what you are planning to do then we work with our building inspector to ensure that to arrange for the refurbishment to be inspected and signed off against local regulations as it progresses.
