Home Improvement Projects That Boost the Value of the Home

The family home is likely to be the biggest single investment you will ever make and it is therefore a wise investment to carry out improvements. There are many ways to improve a property, and with that in mind, here are a few home improvements that offer a great ROI.

A Conservatory

Many UK homeowners have opted for a customised conservatory, rather than relocating. That extra living space requirement comes hand in hand with raising a family and a made to measure conservatory made from uPVC or hardwood is the ideal way to increase the living area.

If you are looking for a return on investment, extending the home is likely to pay the highest dividend and with a local double glazing company that specialises in conservatories of bespoke design, you can create the ideal extension. Access would typically come in the form of composite patio doors that can be opened to combine the terrace with the lounge.

Replacement Windows and Doors

Many homeowners replace their windows and doors in search of better insulation and with a bespoke design, it can transform the look of a home. The list of benefits is long and includes better security, lower energy bills and a boost of the property value.

If a property has been on the market for a few months without generating any enquiries, it could be that the decaying windows are a put-off. Replacing the windows and doors will often result in a quick sale and some people install for that very reason. If you opt for complete double glazing, expect to see s significant increase the next time you have your home valued.

Creating a Terrace

If you haven’t already done this, it is perhaps the best way to make use of your garden. For a reasonable budget, you can have the dining room window removed and replaced by sliding patio doors that take you out to an attractive terrace and with some landscaping and outdoor furniture, you have created a feature that will add considerably to the value of the property.

If your home is one of unique character, you can have a set of French doors fabricated and with matching windows, the home is transformed.


The roof is a critical component of any structure and while it might be sound and very functional, its appearance does nothing for the property. Reroofing involves putting a second skin over the existing roof tiles, and does not involve any structural work, which helps to keep the cost down.
