Be Mindful of your Home Improvement Budget

When you consider the sorry state of the housing market, it is little wonder that homeowners are looking to stay put and add value to their homes. 

However if you are looking to extend your home, be warned that carrying out unnecessary work or failing to plan or budget could scupper all your grand plans. More often than not, homeowners end up spending much more than anticipated on home improvements. This is all very well if you have lots of savings in the bank, but if your improvement fund is already on the small side, chances are you will stick your optional extras on credit – and worry about the consequences later. 

At Dual Glaze Services Ltd, Billericay’s double-glazing and conservatory expert, they are often asked how homeowners can build their dream conservatory while continuing to remain on budget. With 35 years of experience, they have a wealth of experience and very satisfied customers!

Their advisors and fitters are fully qualified and can address any budget worries you may have. They’re more than happy to help homeowners work out an affordable solution for their home. 

There’s a few of their budget-saving tips:

1) Before you begin your hunt for the perfect conservatory, identify a realistic budget – and stick to it. It is all too tempting to get carried away with extravagant and expensive designs which will threaten your original costings. Choose a product that meets your budget expectations without compromising on quality.  Remember it is important to shop around.

2) If you have fallen in love with a particular style of conservatory but your budget won’t stretch to the size of the project, consider opting for a smaller conservatory in the same design. The larger your conservatory, the more expensive it will be as it will obviously require a smaller roof.

3) The total cost of a conservatory relies on a number of components and it might be possible to opt for a combination of expensive or cheaper projects. You may want to choose patio doors which are more cost-effective, for example, or opt to save in the glass product you choose. Again at Dual Glaze they can offer you the best solution for your needs. 


4) And finally, remember that once your conservatory is built, you will need extra funds to cover the cost of blinds, tiling, lighting and furniture.
