We all love to improve our living space and some improvements are better investments than others, as they offer long-term added comfort and an increase in property value. If you are looking to do some renovations at home and would like to add value to the property, here are three great projects that will result in a big rise in the value.
- UPVC Double Glazing – If you haven’t already made the switch to UPVC double glazed windows, this should be a priority. The benefits are many; improved thermal and sound insulation, better home security and an added level of comfort, not to mention the increased value to the property. If you are looking to buy UPVC windows, a Google search is all it takes to source a local provider, and with their design expertise and your ideas, the perfect design awaits! Of course, replacing your windows is a major investment, but one that you will recoup over the many years, and with a long warranty from the supplier, you can enjoy many years of extra benefits.
- Fully Retractable Roof – The ultimate in shading, a fully motorised retractable roof is considered a part of the building and therefore, the value increases.You can have special wind and rain sensors fitted, allowing your roof to automatically adjust to give you cover and shading; and when you do wish to have sunlight, the touch of a button is all it takes. There are several systems available, and, of course, the unit is made to measure, which means a perfect fit.
- Modular Structure – If you need more living space, there are alternatives to the traditional bricks and mortar extension, which come in the form of a stand-alone structure that you can locate anywhere on your property. This could be used to accommodate overnight guests, or be used as a study centre for the kids, and if you are about to launch your own business, the modular building could be the perfect office. There are specialist companies that build prefabricated units to order, and they can be sourced with a Google search.
- Swimming Pool – If you have the space, why not indulge in the ultimate luxury and have a pool installed? Yes, it will be a costly project, but think of the benefits that a pool will offer you and your family, and should you ever decide to sell up and relocate, you will have no problems finding a buyer. The size and indeed, style, is something to discuss with a pool company, and by using one that is established, you can be sure of a first-class job at a reasonable cost.
All of the above would result in a significant rise in property value, not to mention the added comfort and many other advantages to be enjoyed. Why not spend a few days thinking about what project would offer you the most benefits, then you can use the Internet to research and find a local supplier who has all the solutions? Spending money improving your living space is perhaps the best way to ensure the value of your home increases, and there are many ways to do this.
