A few ways Silva Construction recommends designing the home to feel more comfortable include:
- Making windows double or triple-paned to reduce noise, and adding insulation into the walls and ceilings to further muffle unwanted sounds.
- Make sure the new materials you purchase come with low-toxic finishes to make the air cleaner.
- Invest in an air system that allows you to personalize the temperature room by room so everyone is always comfortable.
- Choose radiant flooring (also known as underfloor heating), an energy-efficient way to keep warm throughout the cold months
- Ensure you have plenty of natural light; installing skylights is one way to achieve this.
There are a number of more ways to remodel the home with your health in mind, and Silva Construction helps homeowners with this every day.
A past client of Silva Construction said, “Thanks to you all for making our house remodel a reality. We have heard many horror stories about bad contractors and workmen disappearing half-way through a project, and we feel very fortunate to have found a professional and genuine company that completed the remodel ahead of time and to a high standard. We still have a steady stream of people knocking on our door asking how we got through it all, and I am always happy to recommend Silva Construction.”
