New advice service from Eco Home Centre

Eco Home Centre specialises in eco refurbishment of properties in and around SE Wales. We have been helping people with their homes for over a decade and we know that we have a lot of advice to offer homeowners / tenants / landlords about their houses.

We see mistakes being made all the time: the wrong materials being used; poor workmanship; inappropriate and often un-necessary work being undertaken; low cost, but high maintenance options being taken; etc. It is so depressing that people are wasting their money on this work. After all people generally want things done correctly and for the good of them and the house. However, they get poor advice from builders, surveyors and architects because these professions are not trained in older buildings, their structures, materials and their subsequent requirements.

This is where Eco Home Centre comes in, as we have a decade of experience in reading a house and diagnosing it. After all, the terraces of Wales all have over 100 years of history playing on them as well as their original structures. They have seen years of weathering,  ‘improvements’, DIY, extensions, changing fashion etc all of which have affected them. Finding the right path for the house is therefore more complicated than you might think. Every house is different and that means that you need a personalised plan if you are to make your home more sustainable.

At Eco Home Centre we believe that sustainable refurbishment is about doing work correctly. This means that you have to find materials, equipment, systems etc that work with the existing structure in a way that does not compromise its future performance, whilst maintaining a balance between finances, the wider environment and also social considerations (like health, light, air quality, family interaction etc).

So at Eco Home Centre we have a service where we come out to visit you in your home, spend some time finding out your priorities etc and the structure of the house and any associated problems. We then write up the conclusions and provide you with a report to use with your builders / architect so that they get it right.

This service can save you lots of time, hassle and money. Nothing worse that spending a lot of money on doing things that will just provide you with stress and extra expense into the future. Better to spend some more time on preparation and get it right first time!

If you are interested in this service we now have time during the week, but also in the evenings and weekends, to come over and plan out a great refurbishment plan with you.
