Technical condition of single-family houses in Poland. Renovation needs

Share this Post:

This report, released by the Institute of Environmental Economics-Efficient Poland Initiative (IEE-EP) focuses on investment needs among owners of single-family buildings (SFBs).


The report summarises a survey research performed in 2017 among owners of single-family Houses, and was inspired by the declaration of Polish Government that it will develop a national programme supporting thermal-modernisation of SFBs. The document provides answers to issues related to the structure of the programme to be developed.


Main findings include:


  • the scale of modernisation required is enormous and investors lack financial resources to implement the renovation work as desired (in large measure this problem can be solved through loan products, although to what degree is unclear);
  • modernisation is not just about thermal modernisation but includes also other renovation work, such as roof, bathroom or kitchen renovation;
  • support is essential for comprehensive renovation projects (encouraging comprehensive building modernisation through subsidies, housing modernisation rebates and other instruments.
