Future-Proof Building is all about educating homeowners to make the right choices for their home.
When choosing between quotes it may be that the cheapest quote doesn’t represent the best value because the value over time for that product or service may be less when all factors are considered. To understand this is to understand the Life Cycle cost of a product or service.
