Resources are limited, make the most of them.
Modesty, economy, caution
The basic advice is clear: a certain reasonable degree of modesty, economy and caution is now appropriate. This does not mean that you should fundamentally change your plans and significantly reduce the planned living space or use cheaper and lower quality material, but you also do not have to realize your most lush dreams.
This applies both to the area of living space and other factors that make construction more expensive. Get inspired by a number of examples, often exceptional but modest constructions or clever reconstruction solutions.
Save on implementation
Larger projects are worth leaving to professionals. An important step is the selection of a construction company or contractor or the entire construction. A suitable choice can save a significant part of financial costs, but also time costs.
” During reconstruction or turnkey construction, there are no worries about arranging, guarding and coordinating the work of individual construction professions, which you leave to the construction company. You can also check this thanks to a transparent account , where you can see exactly how much each work and material costs you. The system of transparent construction supply is a complete novelty in the Czech Republic. This service allows you to have the entire contract under control and financially, although the responsibility remains with the construction company , “says Jiří Bonk from the construction company Wirtuuu.
You can save on reconstruction by cleverly managing costs related to materials, technologies or the construction work itself. At the same time, however, it is advisable to calculate how much you can save in the future if you initially invest in energy-saving technologies. The offer is wide, there are many solutions on the market for effective insulation, economical heating and water heating.
It is also worth investing in quality windows, which are also important for saving energy.
Use the green solution
Ecological solutions that work with alternative energy sources also provide inspiration. Thanks to them, you will save on regular energy expenditures in the long run, but you can also use state support from the New Green Savings subsidy program and save on implementation.
” You don’t even have to worry about the administration involved. We will be happy to help with the entire process of acquiring and installing photovoltaics for your family house , ”says Jan Kovalský from Energie ČS.
