To catch up with the EU indications, you will have to renovate your house soon: here are the three main costs of work at home.
Given the latest European Union directives regarding the eco-sustainability of a house and the minimum required parameters, many will have to renovate their homes in a hurry for this to comply with the law. Renovation interventions have a high cost, quantifiable by the extent of the interventions required. Want to know how much it costs renovate a 100 m2 apartment? Keep reading this article.
To understand how much the renovation of an average apartment (between 70 and 100 square meters) would cost, we must first identify the type of intervention necessary. Exist three levels of restructuring: one basic, one intermediate and one advancedas much as individual financial resources allow.
These three examples can be valid in case we talk about one purely aesthetic renovation, where the property has no structural, mold or other problems. For aesthetic procedures, prices can vary from a minimum of 300 up to a maximum of 1,500 euros per square metre; in this case we are still excluding interventions for the eco-sustainability of the property.
Renovating a 100 m2 house: how much it costs and why the EU forces you to do it
Just for a cosmetic renovation, you will need at least cash 50-70 thousand euros for a building of about 100 square meters, a price that doubles if we want a luxury home. Prices continue to increase if in an apartment of the same size it is necessary to deal with structural interventions or the renewal of the electrical and drainage systems.
Let us consider, for example, that the costs for demolition and waste disposal they prowl around 3,000 euros, while for the complete renovation of the bathroom, a minimum of 4,000 euros is needed. A large portion of the final figure, however, will only be used for raise the energy class of the apartment.
The latest directives of the European Union have been very clear: houses in the EU territory must strictly be green. A census will be carried out by June 2023 of all properties; those that are not in line with the new energy requirements – and we are talking about the vast majority of European houses – will have to carry out targeted interventions.
The goal is this: all houses will have to return to energy class E by 1 January 2030and in energy class D by 1 January 2033. Bad news for all houses in category F and G, which in less than ten years will have to find a way to adapt by installing photovoltaic panels or a new, more efficient boiler.
