What Adds Value To A House?

With the housing marketing struggling, it’s now more important than ever to boost the value of your property. Home improvements such as installing conservatories, new front doors, and double glazed windows can all add to the value of the house – making the task of selling an easier one. In this article, we will explore the best ways to add value to a home and how they can help your sale go smoothly.


Any type of extension is a surefire way to bump up the value of your home – simply due to the fact that you’re expanding the usable space of your property. The initial investment of constructing a conservatory is more than paid off, thanks for its ability to add between 5 – 7% to the final selling price.

Whether you’re looking for a place to relax, dine or hone your hobby – conservatories make for a convenient extra room that is in touch with the outdoors and boasts plenty of natural light. In summary, conservatories mean you can reap the benefit of extra space in the present and boost your asking price in the future.     

New Doors

Appearances matter, and one easy way of enhancing kerb appeal can be through simply installing new doors – one of the cheaper options for boosting the value of your property. Glass doors in particular, whether that be front doors or patio doors, can add a touch of class to any property and are an excellent way to allow in natural light. Choosing the right contractor to carry out this job is paramount, as this can affect the quality of the final finish – G&L Windows have years of glazing experience and can install front doors, patio doors and bi-fold doors to the very highest standard.

Double Glazing

From enhancing your home security to improving the energy efficiency of your property, double glazing has multiple benefits that can elevate the enjoyment of a home whilst you still live there – but can also be advantageous when it comes time to sell up. Most potential buyers will be seeking a home that is fully kitted out with double glazed windows, so this really is one of the essential house improvements that you should be making.

As a final note, if you’re wondering ‘how much is my house worth today?’ then a home valuation is a superb way to assess this. If, however, this seems like too much effort, you could always search for a online calculator to generate a rough estimate.
