The resale performance of buildings that have not been renovated is not as solid as it used to be. Air infiltrations, energy-consuming systems and unoccupied basements were tolerated and quite frequent in the past.

Today, people are looking for comfortable, functional and visually pleasing living spaces. Whether it is to improve one’s living conditions or for resale, renovation work that is planned and well executed helps to reduce energy costs, improve one’s comfort and aesthetics and increase the value of one’s property.
