In this segment of The Marc and Mandy Show: Marc and Mandy At Home, Mandy chats with Jeff Ehler from Above All Projects about how they take care to be careful with renovations.
Mandy: When you’re investing in a renovation on your home, you want to make sure that all your bases are covered. I have Jeff from Above All Projects to give us some tips on just that. Okay, so, let’s talk about the inside of the home. What are you looking for?
Jeff: Let’s start, for example, with replacing your windows. Well, it’s really important, when you’re doing any kind of renovation to your home, that you consider how one change is going to affect other areas of the home. And so, and above all, we’re a building envelope specialist. So, our job is really to make sure that the weather stays out of your house. And so, say you’re replacing your windows, you want to check how that might affect other areas of the home. You might be making that home humidity rise, which might lead to condensation issues that following winter or spring. So, it’s really important to look at how these different systems in the home integrate together to give you that great protection that you’re looking for. You want the snow and the wind outside and the heating and air conditioning inside. And so, the factors that are really important to that are especially going to be your insulation and then all the things that protect your home from the water. So, you’ve got your roofing, your soffit fascia and eavestrough, the siding things like your windows and doors, and they all contribute to how airtight it is and how well insulated it’s going to be.
Mandy: If you’re having roofing work done, I suppose that’s a good time to have some of those things checked as well right?
Jeff: Absolutely. So, when we look at any project, we want to make sure that one thing isn’t going to adversely affect something else. For example, if you change your installation or you change your windows, it might increase the humidity in the home and so you might need to consider an hrv or something of that nature. So, it’s really important to trust your contractor has the experience to look at things from all angles.
