Renovations could include improvements like window replacements that make your guest spaces quieter, warmer, cooler and more energy efficient.
Switching out your windows for more energy efficient windows can save you money on your operating costs. Read about why you should switch to energy efficient windows here (link to window blog)
Curb appeal can influence your guests first impression and mood throughout their stay. But it can also influence the mood and behavior of your staff.
