Every year the Canadian Home Builders’ Association designates October as Renovation month across Canada and this year, the benefits have never been greater, especially when it comes to energy efficiency.
The most important aspect of any renovation is finding the right professional to do the job. The demands introduced in the building code over the past two decades have created the need for much more sophisticated materials and complex components in all projects. This rapid evolution in building science required a new breed of professional renovators who are connected to organizations that can help them constantly upgrade their skill and knowledge sets. The days of reliable home ‘handymen’ are gone.
