Did you know that the average Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating in the UK is D? That means that a lot of homeowners are paying more than they need to be on heating their homes.
With energy costs rising, homeowners want to make sure their properties are energy efficient to save money and the planet. They also need any improvements to be cost-effective. If building from scratch or renovating, clients are wanting things to run smoothly to be able to move into their energy efficient homes with as few setbacks as possible.
At Murton & Co. we usually see clients before, during or after the project has started. We can help at every stage or all of them depending on your requirements.
Before – if you are building from scratch or doing a remodel of an existing structure we offer a range of surveys to help you get through the planning stages. This can often feel the most daunting of tasks as your project is in the hands of the authorities. We have gone through this stage successfully a countless number of times and will be on hand to support you. Additionally, we are available to oversee these steps to get ahead of problems if they arise, making them quicker to resolve.
During – once you have the go-ahead, building work can commence. At this stage, we can advise on energy systems, i.e. air and heat sources, to ensure that when your project is signed off, your energy ratings will be the best they can be. The great thing is that we will work alongside you to be ready at every stage. This saves you time and costs because you don’t have to wait and delay aspects of the build to wait for a form or box to be ticked. We ensure that throughout the build, everything is compliant, done properly and to a high standard.
After – now that your project is built you will need certificates. We can offer these as stand-alone items or if we were with you from previous stages, we would already have the majority of the information required so that is a huge bonus. We will get you living in your new home much quicker.
Collaborating with us at any stage of your project will take a load of stress off your shoulders. We understand that you want to reduce your carbon footprint or your running costs and at the same time add real value to your lives and your property.
We like action.
If you do too – contact us.
