Getting Results in Older Homes
For the purposes of this discussion, we'll say that an older home is one that was built before 1980.  The oil crisis in the 1970's greatly changed the way homes were built, and many older homes have already had improvements implemented by well intentioned occupants.  Effective Home Solutions has the equipment and expertise necessary to take these improvements to the next level.  Surrounding this text are some pictures of the problems, and solutions, we encounter in older homes.
