Top home improvements for the summer

Over the last 18 months, the number of Brits undertaking DIY projects and renovations has jumped significantly, as we found new ways to pass our time in lockdown and improve our living situations.

But, which home improvements have the biggest impact to your property's value?

Extensions

Adding an extension is one of the most popular home improvement projects, adding up to 23% to your home's sale price.*

In fact, in northern regions over 2020, there was a double digit increase in planning permission applications for extensions. 

Garages

Adding a garage is a great way to expand your home.

Having a property with secure parking can lower the price of your car insurance policies, as opposed to on-street spaces, whilst making your home more attractive to buyers.

Loft conversions 

Loft conversions are a brilliant way of creating extra space out of an area that is rarely used, whilst contributing an additional 20% in value to your property's price.*

Due to COVID-19, people are looking for space for home offices.

A loft conversion is the perfect solution!

Conservatories 

One of the great advantages of building a conservatory is that planning permission is more straightforward. 

It also adds around 5% to the value of your house.*

Outbuildings and sheds

Green space has become massively important to us.

Having an outdoor space that can be used for storing gardening equipment or even as somewhere to relax is highly desirable.
