The weather is gradually improving, we have a roadmap out of lockdown and there is a general sense of renewal in the air.
Our homes have been one of the few constants in the past twelve, difficult months. The extra time at home has led many people to think about how they would like to improve their property.
Increase the value of your property
Whether you are replacing shabby windows, adding a conservatory or creating extra space with a home extension, these investments will add value to your home. For example, a high quality conservatory could increase the value of your property by 5% 1.
Investing in the security of your home is another way to add value. An immediate saving could be made if your home insurance company takes the security of your windows and doors into account when calculating your premiums. Plus, of course, you greatly reduce the risk of theft from your home.

Reduce your heating costs
Any doors or windows around your home have the potential to let the warmth out and let the cold in. Single glazing, failing seals and uninsulated frames can all be to blame – increasing the cost of keeping your home warm and the environmental implications of higher energy consumption.
Improve your, and your family’s, wellbeing
Spending time in a home which you’re not happy with, can be draining for you and your family.
If this sounds like your situation, take some time to consider what it is that you would like to improve. Moving home is not always the best option. With a little investment, it’s almost always possible to turn your current house into the home you desire.
Good quality replacement windows add value to your home, enhance insulation against cold weather and draughts, and will make a dramatic difference to its appearance.
As they say, “your home is your castle”. A secure, attractive front door will give you a feeling of safety and pride in your home’s appearance. Modern doors are also highly energy efficient, helping to keep your home warm.
New French, patio or bi-fold doors create a bridge between your home and garden. This merging of indoor/outdoor living is very popular and can give your home a real ‘wow’ factor.
Conservatories and orangeries
You can further enhance the feeling of indoor/outdoor living with a new conservatory or orangery. These wonderfully light and airy spaces increase the living area in your home and provide a fabulous spot for relaxing or dining.
Gone are the days when expensive build projects were the only way to extend your home. We offer a range of home extension options to increase your property’s square footage – which is almost guaranteed to add value, often more than 10%.
Our stylish home extensions are comparatively quick to install and can help you accommodate a growing family, provide a space for home working or create wonderfully open plan living areas.
