Why building refurbishment is important
MLZ the best option to refurbish buildings
Buildings in Marbella and the Costa del Sol experience visual and structural deterioration over the years due to the effects of atmospheric agents (humidity, wind, rain, etc.) and the daily use of the people who live inside them. All buildings are obliged to undergo a series of inspections to confirm that they are in good condition, and if these are unfavourable, the problem must be corrected in order to avoid the slightest hazard.

Why is it necessary to refurbish buildings?
The operational life of a building is limited by the materials with which it was constructed, but, if the proper renovation and maintenance of the building is carried out, both its stability and durability can be extended, even before signs of deterioration or ageing are visible.
Current legislation states that “The owners of land, structures and buildings have the duty to maintain them in safe, healthy, public and decent conditions, by carrying out the necessary conservation and rehabilitation works“. Therefore, maintaining the safety of the people living inside is a legal matter and if this obligation is not met, the town hall can impose sanctions and take measures against the owners of the property, or even expropriate the building.
Another important aspect to consider as to why renovation is necessary is the lack of land in city centres, which have different building protection laws and which have maximised the resources allocated to reconstruction rather than demolition. It is much easier to renovate than to demolish and build an establishment from scratch.
Types of buildings rehabilitation

Form the structure and foundations of the building, it is of vital importance in order not to compromise the safety conditions and to guarantee the stability and correct mechanical resistance of the building. Most of the tasks are related to the reinforcement of the foundation or processing and improvement of pillars or slabs of the building.
The roof of a building is exposed to many external agents and is a very sensitive element. Incorrect waterproofing of roofs causes moisture problems, generating problems with the thermal insulation of the building. The tasks can be carried out on the inside or outside depending on the characteristics of the building itself.

Related to increasing the comfort and entrances to the building, such as the installation of lifts or the necessary actions to avoid the existence of architectural barriers that prevent or hinder the inhabitants of the buildings.
Consists of benefiting the environment by making the building more sustainable, it also helps tenants to economise, as aspects that they use on a daily basis are optimised and these changes can be: changing windows, wall insulation, ceiling and floor insulation, installation of renewable energies and pipe insulation.
