Add Space With a Loft Conversion

Add Space With a Loft Conversion – Many people move home when space is at a premium and the family is outgrowing their existing property. It could be that you don’t really need to move house, just create some more living space in the property you already have. Not so simple you might think, yet having a loft conversion or garage conversion can easily create a new room or two and save all the hassle of moving. Expensive you might think, well yes it can be quite expensive to do a loft conversion but the work will add at least the comparable value to your property and save you the expense of moving which can also be costly and is basically lost money. You should be wary of the ceiling price of properties in your area however, as you do not want to be the most expensive house on the street if you later DO need to sell, that could make your property hard to sell, although it may be the most spacious house in the road. You have to weigh up all the options but consider it carefully and it may just be worth putting up with building work for a few weeks and making the most of your loft. Having a loft conversion may make the rest of your house warmer and save on heating costs, so there are additional benefits to be had.

Have Some Coving Fitted

Have Some Coving Fitted – If the rooms of your house are looking a bit tired and drab you might want to consider having some coving fitted to give your rooms a bit of a lift by adding some decorative and attractive features. If you decide to use some of the cheaper polystyrene or polymer coving that is readily available at DIY stores, you might be able to do this job yourself if you are that way inclined, but even using this readily prepared coving with corner sets included, you might find that it is a bit tricky once you get started. So you might need to call on the services of a specialist coving fitter to either do the job from scratch or finish off you feeble attempts at the project. If you already have coving installed, it will be something of a bigger job to remove all the old coving, clean up the walls and ceilings, and cut and fit the new coving. In this case it would really be better to call in the help of an experienced coving fitter (or plasterer) who will breeze through this job in no time at all, having all the correct tools and equipment readily to hand.

Need a New Staircase

Filed under: DIY,England,Scotland,Services — Tags: , , — needahand @ 5:49 pm

Need a New Staircase? – There comes a time for most of us when that tired old staircase starts to look a bit dreary and delapidated. What do you do? Do you restore or renovate your existing staircase of do you replace it with a shiney new model? Perhaps the first step might be to call in a staircase fitter to have a look at what you have currently got, maybe he can make some suggestions as to what might be the best course of action. You might be able to change your whole house around by moving or switching round your staircase, you might be able to incorporate a new style of staircase, maybe a spiral staircase or a floating staircase. This could dramatically change the look of your house and you could be the envy of your friends and relatives. This is not going to be cheap though, so be ready to shell out some serious money if you are planning this type of remodelling. If you live somewhere like London, you could find that you will actually add more to the value of your home than the cost of doing the job, of course this does not just apply for London, this could be true wherever you live, so you might want to investigate just how much value you could add to your property in your particular area.
