How to renovate a prefabricated house?

Your once expensive prefabricated house is starting to need renovation at one or the other corner? Then it is time to do a professional and effective renovation. In this article you will learn what you should keep in mind so that your house shines again in new splendor.

The exterior wall

Combating odors

For some prefabricated houses built before 1984, it may be due to the wood preservatives used at that time to a moderate, "old" odor. To avoid this in the future, a special procedure is used.

This first applies a paint that neutralises the odor source, whereupon a special absorber fleece destroys all existing odors. This is completed by an insulation system that prevents the formation of unpleasant odors in the future.

Especially with unpleasant odors it becomes clear that not only external "beauty", but also the "clean" core of the house counts: If your house is stable and modern from the inside, most of the rest is also in good condition. It is therefore advisable to start with a renovation inside and then treat the exterior.

Effective bath renovation

Especially in the bathroom, over the years there may be a real need for refurbishment, which is usually attributable to defects or damage to the construction. Seals may "neglect" their function over time, and leaking water will cause further damage.

It makes sense here to professionally prepare your bathroom and, if necessary, also to "benefit" from it: A creative redesign with a contemporary design transforms your bathroom into a modern wellness area that no longer reveals anything of your old bathroom.

In many cases, the same principle also applies to the kitchen: the sealing of leaky joints prevents water escaping from damaging other areas.

Modernization of building services

The extremely high energy costs of recent years are an imposition for many homeowners. As part of a refurbishment of your prefabricated house, decide to install state-of-the-art energy technology such as a photovoltaic system so as not to be dependent on rising energy costs.

Also, for example, an infrared heater or the controlled ventilation of your house can help to keep energy costs as low as possible.
