Renovation activities grew by 28% on the previous year. This growth derived mainly from investment repairs. The proportion of repairs requiring dwellings to be temporarily vacated grew. Vacating homes for the duration of a renovation is not only a workplace and housing safety matter, but also a factor contributing to residents´ comfort.
Ritva and Pentti live in Lahti, on Juustilankatu. They have just returned home after a renovation programme. Project Manager Petteri Hyttinen explains the details of the renovation work on site.
