When you house is starting to show its age you may find that you have to address problem after problem. In many cases, having people in to take care of all these things represents a significant cost and it does not always leave you with fantastic results. Too much work conducted by too many separate outfits can leave your home with a somewhat fragmented maintenance history.
In order to keep everything together, it might be worth trying to get all your repairs in each part of the house carried out at once. For instance, if it becomes apparent that your insulation downstairs needs sorting out, but you also want to re-plaster the kitchen and sort out the floor in the dining room, you could just have the entire ground floor renovated.
This represents a big investment, but it sorts all your problems out at once and gives you the opportunity to re-design the space at the same time. This often proves to be a positive way of doing things and it leaves you with results that could never be described as underwhelming or fragmented.
