Are you thinking about investing in your home with some improvements and upgrades this summer? Knowing where to spend your money to get the best possible return in the long term is tricky – which home improvements are worth the investment? From extensions to energy saving improvements, nd out more about the upgrades you can make to your house to see (and feel) real bene ts right away.

New roof

Replacing your existing roof can add instant curb appeal to your home, but if you’re not planning on selling just yet, there are cases when a new roof is more than just aesthetically pleasing – it could be an absolutely crucial update to your home. Are there shingles or tiles missing? Can you see sunlight when you stand in your attic? Is the roof sagging? Time to call in the experts. A new roof will last you 30+ years, so it’s an investment to make now which has long term benefits.

Replace windows to triple glazed

Double glazed windows are the norm for many households now, but if you really want to invest in your home with an upgrade that will bring you bene ts for years to come, consider upgrading your windows to triple glazed. These not only help to insulate your home further but they block out a lot of noise – ideal if your neighbourhood isn’t that quiet.

Insulate your conservatory

In the summer, insulating your conservatory might be the last thing on your mind. After all, it’s prob- ably the warmest room in the house at the minute. That soon changes though, as the cold weather normally makes it impossible to sit comfortably in this room. Consider insulating your conservatory now, so that you can use it as an extra reception room in the winter and get full use from this room in your home.

Add an extension

You might choose to invest in an extension for your home, whether that’s enlarging your kitchen, converting your attic into another bedroom, or transforming your garage into a second living room – anything that adds additional space to your home will be worth the investment as homes today are much smaller, making space an absolute premium.
