Refurbishment vs. Replacement: Choose LTI’s Wall Transformation



When your home is in need of a little TLC, you face the decision whether you should replace or refurbish your walls. This choice not only affects the appearance and integrity of the structure but also has significant environmental, economic, and time-related implications. 

In our fast-paced world, where sustainability is increasingly at the forefront of our decisions, refurbishment of your homes walls presents a much more sustainable case. This blog explores why refurbishment is a better choice for you, delving into the benefits of choosing an eco-friendly, and cost-effective approach to your wall transformation.

Analysing the Impact of Refurbishment vs. Replacement

  1. Waste Reduction

When you choose a renewal process, it typically involves stripping everything back to the basics and starting fresh. This process generates considerable waste from old plaster to fixtures, often filling several skips which will then need to be disposed of, impacting both the environment and costs. 

In contrast, refurbishment focuses on preserving as much of the existing materials as possible, leading to a significant reduction in waste. This approach is not only more economical but also minimises the environmental footprint of renovation projects.

  1. Time Efficiency

Complete renewal demands extensive labour and time, from demolition to reconstruction, often stretching over lengthy periods. Refurbishment, however, can be much quicker. By upgrading rather than replacing, refurbishment reduces downtime and accelerates the process, making it ideal for homeowners who are looking for their home to transformed quickly but effectively. 

  1. Cost Considerations

Money always plays a pivotal role in any decision process. A full replacement not only incurs higher material costs but also demands more labour, more disposal and more time. Although alternatives like overcasting or applying masonry paint might appear cheaper in the short term, they will not offer long-term durability. 

Refurbishment, on the other hand, is not just cost-effective; it also lasts. Our methods and materials are designed to withstand mother nature’s elements, backed by a 15-year guarantee, giving you peace of mind.

  1. Sustainability and Environmental Impact

The environmental impact of construction projects is a growing concern. Typically requiring more materials, generating more waste, which contributes to higher CO2 emissions. Our transformations are inherently more sustainable, using fewer resources, producing less waste all while requiring less transportation and heavy machinery. This significantly reduces the carbon footprint helping preserve our planet for your children and grandchildren.
