Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have questions before your renovation? We have the answers so you can know if Revision Built is right for you.

Our main objective is to refurbish existing homes with an emphasis on energy efficiency. This involves replacing outdated materials with new ones, while thoughtfully considering design and building science principles. We strive to construct homes with a forward-thinking approach.

A Net-Zero home represents the pinnacle of energy efficiency, as it generates as much energy as it consumes. However, achieving this label consistently may not be feasible due to factors beyond our control. Therefore, we do our best to optimize energy efficiency within the constraints of your budget and location.

Advancements in building science and technology enable us to leverage the latest innovations for both our benefit and the planet’s. When we refer to ‘environment,’ we consider aspects such as:

  • Enhanced indoor air quality
  • Minimized heat loss and gain
  • Use of sustainable materials
  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Integration of renewable energy sources
  • Water conservation measures
  • Effective waste management
  • Promotion of sustainable transportation options
  • Eco-friendly landscape design
  • Raising education and awareness on sustainable practices


We were already trending to cleaner energy, and then a global energy crisis triggered by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is causing profound and long-lasting changes that have the potential to hasten the transition to a more sustainable and secure energy system, according to the latest edition of the IEA’s World Energy Outlook.

Although upgrading design, insulation, and HVAC systems may initially have higher costs, the long-term advantages, such as energy savings and increased comfort, provide substantial value that cannot be overlooked. In the long run, you not only recoup your investment but also enjoy living in a superior space. As energy prices continue to increase and disruptions in supply become inevitable, we can minimize the effects of these occurrences by constructing better, more efficient homes.

Our operations are primarily focused in the central areas of metropolitan Ottawa.

Our company is not typically structured to handle smaller projects such as bathroom renovations, deck installations, or kitchen updates. Instead, we specialize in medium to large-scale home renovation projects that include the building envelope as an integral component of the work scope.

We possess building lots in the vicinity of Embrun, with plans to develop them in 2024 and 2025. Additionally, we enjoy working with clients who share our values and are open to building custom homes tailored to their needs.

We employ a successful system that involves collaborating with highly skilled specialty trade professionals and maintaining an in-house team responsible for keeping job sites safe, well-organized, clean, and on schedule.

Indeed, we make certain that all our staff members maintain up-to-date safety and first-aid training.

There are several good reasons to renovate your home, which can include improving functionality, increasing comfort, enhancing aesthetics, and boosting property value. Here are some of the top reasons:

  • Enhancing comfort and functionality: Renovations can help tailor your home to better suit your lifestyle and needs, such as creating more space, improving the layout, or adding features that make daily living more enjoyable and efficient.
  • Energy efficiency: Upgrading your home’s insulation, windows, doors, and heating and cooling systems can significantly reduce energy consumption, lower utility bills, and improve overall comfort.
  • Maintenance and repair: Over time, homes require maintenance and repairs to ensure their structural integrity and functionality. Renovating can address issues like a leaking roof, deteriorating siding, or outdated electrical and plumbing systems.
  • Aesthetic appeal: Renovations can enhance your home’s appearance, making it more visually appealing and reflecting your personal taste and style.
  • Increasing property value: Well-planned and executed renovations can increase the market value of your home, making it a more attractive investment for potential buyers.
  • Adapting to changing needs: As your family grows or ages, your home may need to be adapted to accommodate new members or provide accessibility features for older occupants.
  • Sustainability: Incorporating eco-friendly features, such as solar panels, energy-efficient appliances, and sustainable materials, can reduce your home’s environmental impact and contribute to a greener lifestyle.
  • Safety and security: Renovating your home can address potential safety hazards, such as faulty wiring or inadequate fire protection, and improve security features, like window and door locks or alarm systems.
  • Avoiding the cost of moving: Renovating your current home may be more cost-effective than selling and purchasing a new property, especially when considering moving expenses, real estate fees, and potential disruption to your family’s routine.
  • Personal satisfaction: Renovating can give you a sense of accomplishment and pride in creating a space that better reflects your needs, tastes, and values.
