Copy of _98R2052Not everyone can afford to build a new home from scratch with the best performance materials available in the industry. Many families love their existing homes and would simply like to make them more comfortable.

Easier said than done. Until now. We want to show homeowners that they can retrofit their existing homes to be better and more comfortable without having to move.

To do this, we are looking for three homes that we can upgrade. We are asking you to submit your house until 31 August 2016 with the aim of being selected to receive one of three upgrades by 30 September 2016 – two comfort packs valued at R2500.00 and R15000.00 respectively, and R250000.00 for an all round comfort upgrade.

The all round comfort upgrade will use state-of-the-art Saint-Gobain building materials designed to improve comfort in a home in five areas – improved indoor temperature performance (thermal comfort), increased savings (economic comfort), less noise (audio comfort), better indoor air quality (air comfort) and interiors that increase a sense of calm and well-being (visual comfort). By upgrading the walls, ceilings, and insulation, the overall comfort will be increased. This house will be digitally monitored until 31 December 2016 to test the improved performance of the home after the upgrade.

To submit your home, please go to our new dedicated website and follow the prompts: www.upgrademyhome.co.za
