Never before have so many in Norway renovated their homes

Never before have so many in Norway renovated their homes

A lot of people were spending more time at home than otherwise when countries around the world closed down because of the coronavirus in 2020. Being at home for such a long time, they quickly discovered that their house might need a facelift. In this article, I will use Norway as an example of the worldwide increase in renovations that have been taking place. 

 

Strong increase in the number of households that refurbished in 2020

There was a sharp increase in the number of households that refurbished the home in 2020. In total, there were more than 790,000 households that carried out interior renovations in 2020, more than 133,000 more than the year before!

 

Many plumbing companies have seen this strong increase in their own sales numbers. Companies like BAD & VVS, a Rørlegger Bergen, have had more business than ever before, mostly in terms of projects at private homes in Bergen. 

 

Highest activity among the young

The proportion who renovate their interior is highest among the young population groups, with 34% in the age group under 30 years and 42% in the age group 30–39 years. The proportion then decreases with increasing age. One of the main explanations for these differences may be that the younger ones change homes significantly more often than the older ones.

 

What happened in 2020?

The fact that both young people and adults have had to stay at home to a greater extent has had different effects between the age groups. The youngest’s renovation frequency has not changed significantly, possibly because these groups have had more than enough with handling their work tasks in combination with home school, etc.

 

Among the more adult age groups, however, we see that the proportion who have refurbished the interior increased sharply during the corona period. The adults in this context are those between 55 and 64 years, as well as 65–74 years, where the proportion who have refurbished their interior has increased from respectively 23% and 18% in 2019 to approximately 39% and 25% in 2020!

 

If we look at how much money these age groups spent on average on interior renovation, this means that the older adults have spent more than 2.5 billion kroner more in 2020, than they did the year before!

 

What types of work were done?

The growth in the renovation frequency in the wake of national closure did not affect all types of work equally. The major renovation work in kitchens and bathrooms, which require the use of craftsmen, showed a decrease of 2–5%, while the simpler measures that households could carry out themselves showed growth in the same period.

 

We registered the largest growth in the proportion of households that painted the interior. Almost 7 out of 10 who refurbished the interior, carried out painting work. This means that every fifth household (20%) painted the interior of the home last year, compared to 16.5% the year before. In all, more than 495,000 households painted the interior in 2020!

 

The Pros Of Constructing A Home With Wood

house

If we are talking about your ability, there are a lot of historical wooden buildings that are up and standing even to this day. Wood has a lot of properties that a lot of people I love when it comes to construction. Wood is definitely hydroscopic and organic as well. You should also know that wood happens to have:

• Thermal
• Acoustic
• Electrical
• Mechanical
• Aesthetic

And many more suitable qualities that we all love and we are very comfortable building a house making use of its products. With many other materials, it is quite impossible to find all of the above qualities. I will now list out the positives and the advantages of constructing a house making use of wood.

1. It has thermal properties. As we all know, a lot of materials actually change in size and volume as the temperature changes around us. They end up expanding and increasing because of the temperature. This means that volumetric and linear expansion happens. The expansion is something that decreases the strength of the material. Steel is something that is a material that goes through this particular expansion. It is inorganic and non-combustible and has the advantage against fire, but when it is used in buildings, it expands and ends up collapsing because of the increase in heat. If you are going to use steel, I would suggest making use of it in a cold climate.

2. Secondly, wood does not exactly expand against heat. But, it is something that can catch on fire. Wood is also considered to be kindling. Because of heat, it dries out and ends up gaining strength. The only time wood expands even a little bit is because of humidity. This is only scientifically possible. The humidity level of wood does not drop under 5%, even in very dry climates.

3. It has acoustic properties as well. Sound isolation is completely based on the mass of a surface. Wood is a material that is very light, and it is perfect for sound isolation. It is ideal for sound absorption as well. Wood is something that prevents echoes and noise, by completely absorbing sound. For this particular reason, it is used extensively in concert halls and music halls. That is why I would say that it is perfect when it comes to the construction of houses.

4. Sound velocity is much faster in words, when compared to liquids and gases. It is also very close to that of metals. Sound energy is lost as a result of friction. That is why wood is something that is used extensively in musical instruments as well. A piano is usually made of wood. A guitar is also made of wood. Violin is also a musical instrument that is made of wood.
