With over 20 years of industry experience, the team at CBC Builders has all the information you need to add value to your home. Whether carrying out full property renovations or loft conversions, there are plenty of ways we increase the value of homes in Woking and the surrounding areas. From minor property refurbishments to home extensions, we know the sure-fire ways to improve resale value and kerb appeal of your property.
Even if you’re not planning on selling your house soon, it’s important to know how to get the best return when you do sell. The following are some of the key ways to add value to your home:
1. Loft Conversions
Because a loft conversion is cost-effective and versatile, it is an ideal way to add value. Conversions can meet a variety of needs in Woking, as well as allowing the household to enjoy the benefits of natural light and better insulation.
However, it’s vital to make sure loft conversions add more space than they take away. A loft conversion needs a staircase, which will take up some room from the floor below. Our builders ensure the best style and placement of your new staircase to maximise space and practicality.
2. Home Extensions
An extra bedroom or bathroom has a big impact on the value of a property. By extending your home, you create more useable space that improves comfort and function. For this reason, extensions are ideal additions to property renovations and refurbishments.
Home extensions which provide a larger kitchen and/or open plan space are also an excellent way to increase property value in Woking.
3. Kitchen Refurbishments
As the heart of modern homes, the kitchen is a key area for improving the appeal and value of your house. At CBC Builders, our property refurbishments include full kitchen remodels which we tailor to your needs.
If your current kitchen in Woking is cramped or your living space is disjointed, we recommend altering the interior layout to create a space which is lighter, airier and more seamless. Home extensions are also an ideal way to achieve this.
4. Energy Efficiency
When looking at properties, energy efficiency is a key concern of many potential buyers. This is because the higher the energy efficiency of a building, the cheaper it is to run. It’s also better for the environment.
Our builders carry out property renovations and refurbishments to improve the energy efficiency of your home in Woking. This includes repairing and updating heating, plumbing and electrical systems as well as replacing and improving insulation.
Loft conversions also improve energy efficiency because they help retain heat.
5. Exterior Features
First impressions count, which is why it’s essential for the outside of your property to look the part. Make sure brickwork, windows, doors, roofing and chimneys are in good condition and fully weathertight, carrying out property refurbishments and renovations where necessary.
It’s also worth looking at your garden and taking note of any landscaping requirements. Neat, tidy and attractive outdoor spaces make your home more appealing. Think about privacy and if your garden would benefit from a fence or hedge. In addition, CBC Builders constructs driveways which are attractive, functional and add to kerb appeal.
