Your home is your castle – where you feel at ease, comfortable and secure. Home is also where more accidents happen to people than anywhere else. A home renovation provides a great opportunity to improve the safety of your home. If you live in an older home built to earlier codes, chances are that there are a number of things you can do to make your home a safer place to live as building codes and practices have evolved over the years. Not all safety improvements are expensive and time-consuming; but can still make a difference. A renovator can advise you on possible improvements that can be made to your home. Some may already be included in your renovation plans; it may be cost-effective for your renovator to make other improvements at the same time.
