Happy New Year! Make 2019 the year that you finally get round to fixing up your house and making the most of the your property’s space. Not only will this make your home more comfortable and luxurious, but fixing up the place and investing in upgrades will add value to your property in the long run. This is something you should definitely consider if you’re planning on selling your house in the future.

Get any structural problems repaired ASAP

Before you start things about the cosmetics like painting and decorating, you first need to address any issues with the building itself. The redesigning can wait to later. Structural work will probably be the biggest cost you encounter when you own a home. So, it makes sense to get them out of the way. After all, there’s no point in avoiding structural problems that could lead to even further damage to your home and your bank account in the future. Look for problems such as a leaky roof, cracks in the wall, an unstable chimney stack and rotting wooden timbers. Once you’ve spotted a potential problem, give the BUILDAS team a call.

Update your central heating system

Making sure that your central heating system is top of the range will end up adding more value to your property than it costs to get the work done. When you update your central heating and your boiler has a good capacity, you could even start investing in new radiators and underfloor heating. To save money in heating bills in the long run, our team can come in and make sure any drafts around windows and doors are sealed up, replace any windows with double glazing and that your loft is sufficiently insulated.

Get your loft converted

Past all the old children’s toys and dusty boxes is a loft crying out to be renovated. Just thing of what you could do with all that extra space. You could create a home gym. Set up a games room. Add an extra bedroom to your home. Whatever you do with it will definitely add a lot of value to your property. At the end of the day, it’s an investment that could increase the value of your home by up to £100,000!
