Homes deal with a huge array of weather, from sun to intense wind and rain. This means the outside is under constant pressure and needs to be cared for. One of the best ways to do this is to add vinyl cladding.
This type of cladding is fairly easy to add to your building and lasts for many years. Even better, not only will it add value to your home but it needs very little maintenance every year! You can contact vinyl cladding suppliers to get price quotes and book your first renovation project in.
Did you know that upgrading your kitchen can add as much as 6% of the current value to your home? The great thing is you don’t eve, need to pull it all out and start again. Update your appliances, change the cupboard doors and replace your worktops. This means the cost need not be that high but the rewards are certainly worth it.
Returning outside you may already have a garage, in which case enlarging it can be a good way of increasing the value of your home. If you don’t have a garage then now is the time to build one.

It is becoming increasingly common for people to take in lodgers to earn a little extra money. All you need is a bedroom, preferably with en-suite. In fact en-suites generally add value to your home anyway.

It is also important to make sure you stay on top of any small repairs which need to be done. These might not add value but they will prevent bigger problems in the future which can seriously reduce the value of your home!
