Top home improvements for this summer
Over the last 18 months, the number of Brits undertaking DIY projects and renovations has jumped significantly, as we found new ways to pass our time in lockdown and improve our living situations.

Adding an extension is one of the most popular home improvement projects, adding up to 23% to your home’s sale price.*
In fact, in northern regions over 2020, there was a double digit increase in planning permission applications for extensions.
Adding a garage is a great way to expand your home.
Having a property with secure parking can lower the price of your car insurance policies, as opposed to on-street spaces, whilst making your home more attractive to buyers.
