COVID 19: WORKING SAFELY

Transform your house into a low carbon, sustainable home

Ecofurb is a new end-to-end home renovation service

We help homeowners plan energy efficiency improvements, give impartial advice and oversee the works.
THE BEST SOLUTION FOR YOUR HOME

Our expert team will help you choose the right sustainable solutions — considering the features of your home and your budget.

GETTING YOU A FAIR PRICE

Subject to availability, we can get comparable quotes from our cooperative of vetted contractors, and oversee the installation. This means you will get good quality at a fair price.

WITH YOU FROM START TO FINISH
We believe sustainable refurbishments should be easier. Our Coordinators will be there to answer any questions, guiding you through the process, taking the stress out of the equation.

HOW IT WORKS

01 Explore

Check us out, explore your options with our free online Plan Builder. Then if you’d like us to help you make decisions you can submit your draft plan.

TRY OUR FREE PLAN BUILDER
Create an initial renovation plan with our free online Plan Builder. Our team will review your plan and if you want to proceed, we will schedule an in-person Home Survey.

GET A HOME SURVEY
Our Coordinator will survey your home to ensure we recommend solutions that are tailored for your home and your budget.

RECEIVE AN ECOFURB PLAN
Next, we will build a detailed Ecofurb Plan. This report makes it easy to see what will have the biggest impact on carbon emissions and bills. It shows the likely costs, and how the improvements would fit with any other work you’re planning.

02 Make it real

Your Ecofurb Coordinator specifies the energy efficiency works and subject to availability can get you quotes from vetted local contractors who are members of our cooperative. We’ll send you an agreement setting out exactly how we help.

RECEIVE A CONTRACT
We’ll send you an agreement setting out exactly what we do and how we do it for the works you’ve chosen. Ecofurb will be the right fit for medium and larger renovations.

WE CREATE A BUILDING PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION
This is a technical document that includes designs and specification. It ensures all contractors are on the same page, with the right technical guidance.

WE GET QUOTES FOR YOU
Subject to availability, your Coordinator can get quotes from our vetted local contractors. Your Coordinator will make sure the contractors all quote for the same scope of work so that you can compare the quotes easily.

03 Make it happen

Your chosen contractors carry out the work, with your Coordinator there to ensure that it meets the specifications. We sign off completed works before approving final payments.

YOU CHOOSE THE CONTRACTORS
The contractors we work with are members of our cooperative, which means that we have checked them against industry, financial, health and safety and insurance criteria.

WE OVERSEE THE WORKS
Your Coordinator will oversee the works and answer any questions you might have. Your Coordinator is independent of the contractors and both are working for you.

WE CHECK THE WORKS FOR YOU
After the work is finished, your Coordinator will check that it meets the specification. They sign off the work before final payment to the contractors. On larger projects, you may have made some interim payments.
