Covid 19: working safely
Ecofurb is a new end-to-end home renovation service
Our expert team will help you choose the right sustainable solutions — considering the features of your home and your budget.
Subject to availability, we can get comparable estimates from our cooperative of vetted contractors, and oversee the installation. This means you will get good quality at a fair price.
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 and book a home survey.
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 outlines the requirements for the energy efficiency works, and subject to availability can get you estimates from vetted local contractors who are members of our cooperative.
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 BUILDING PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS
This is a technical document that 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 works, with your Coordinator there to ensure that they meet requirements. 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 requirements. They sign off the work before final payment to the contractors. On larger projects, you may have made some interim payments.
Knowing where to start can be tricky. Building on over ten years’ experience delivering award-winning home energy advice, our team have recently launched Ecofurb, to take you from start to finish.
