The housing market is an unpredictable entity that can be influenced by multiple factors, such as the economy, a housing market crash or a local issue. There are often many factors homeowners can’t control which will affect the value of a home. Fortunately, there are ways you can increase the value of your home while also making it more comfortable and energy efficient.
Whether it’s a new conservatory, a new set of doors and windows or a change to your roofline and guttering, Brackenwood can help you increase the value, safety and comfort of your home.
Probably one of the biggest projects you can undertake in adding value to a home, a conservatory gives your property extra space without having to go through the arduous process of planning and building an extension. It’s estimated that conservatories can add up to between 5% and 12% value on your property depending on the type installed. A properly fitted conservatory can also save money over a long period of time by helping your home conserve heat for longer, meaning you’ll spend less on energy and heating bills during the winter!
With over 20 years of experience in building conservatories, Brackenwood can design and build the conservatory that meets your needs. Our team will work with you every step of the way from organising and gaining planning permission through to the design and installation.
Windows play an important role in every household, ensuring there is plenty of natural light during the day and also keeping the house warm during the winter. It’s no surprise that windows are often one of the first aspects considered when it comes to renovating a home. Remodeling Magazine estimated in its 2020 Cost vs Value Report that window replacement has a return on investment of up to 72%. This means almost three-quarters of the window installation cost is recouped in the value of the house when selling.
There are plenty of options to consider when choosing a window, many of which will depend on your specific requirements. Our experienced team will work with you to find the right fit for your home. Whether you’re looking for sliding sash, bay and bow or anything else in between, you’ll feel confident in the fact Brackenwood will keep you and your family warmer and safer, while also increasing the value of your property.
Making a building look unique can be difficult, but installing a high-quality roofline can make your home really stand out. Aside from the aesthetic value that guttering, fascia, cladding, soffit and bargeboards add, each element also plays a vital role in keeping your home warm, dry and safe. The value of a high-quality roofline can be seen long term, as it often becomes a problem when it’s beyond the point of repair and potentially causing damage to your home.
All of our roofline fittings come with a 10 year guarantee and the offer of an IBG (insurance Backed Guarantee) so you can feel safe in the knowledge that your home is protected from the elements. If you’re looking for some personal flair, our bespoke colour service also provides you with the opportunity colour each fitting how you see fit, so you can really bring your home to life.
There’s a lot of contention around exactly how much value a new front door can add to a property with many believing a high-quality one can actually add a higher perceived value to homes. A Sell Homes Fast survey found that specific types of colours can add as much as £4,000 in perceived value to your home, with blue and white labelled as the most popular. Doors are relatively inexpensive compared to some of the bigger home renovations, so this is a perfect way to add value to your home without breaking the bank.
At Brackenwood, we have an extensive range of doors, finishes and colours to match your every need. We are also committed to ensuring your safety, which is why our range of doors come with a 10 point locking system, three steel hooks for maximum strength and a dead-lock for added security.
