When people remodel their homes, they typically do so with the intent to make their homes more functional, beautiful or comfortable. They don’t necessarily do so with the mindset of making the home healthier, but this is one of the benefits you can add in to your home remodeling in Dana Point, CA.
You should never feel as though you need to cut corners with wellness regarding a home remodeling project. Here are just a few ways you can look out for the health and wellness of yourself and your family with your new build.
It’s crucial that any new construction you perform on your home should be built tight and weatherproof so you can prevent moisture from getting into your home. This means having siding, roofing and windows that are all done really well. A failure to ensure you’ve properly weatherproofed your new construction could result in mold or mildew beginning to grow in certain places in your home—perhaps behind walls or in your ceiling. Therefore, make sure your exterior is in order so that the interior of your home is fully protected.
Upgrade your lighting
If you’re upgrading other parts of a room, you may as well take care of the lighting as well. Old fluorescent fixtures can be rather harsh, and certain types of lighting can cause headaches or other health issues. Newer lighting fixtures have plenty of advantages over these older ones, including energy efficiency and aesthetics. You might try adding in new types of lighting to accent certain areas. Under-cabinet LED lighting in your kitchen, for example, can add a lot of visual appeal.
Replace your windows
Many homes still have their original windows, and if they are single-pane wood windows, it’s likely that the wood has rotted out or that they do not provide much in the way of air retention. It’s easy for these windows to develop air leaks, which can create drafts in your home and make it difficult for you to stay comfortable and healthy. New windows are more energy efficient and durable, and come in a wide variety of options for you to choose from.
Address your ventilation
Indoor air quality is important to consider as you go through any renovation or remodel. The quality of the air in your home can make a big difference in your long-term health, especially if you already suffer from conditions such as asthma or allergies. If you do not properly seal the building envelope, air from the crawlspace can quickly infiltrate your home. There are a lot of different types of ventilation systems that can help you keep clean air flowing through your home.
These are just a few examples of some of the issues you can address during home remodeling in Dana Point, CA that can make it easier for you to maintain good health for both you and your family.
