How To Add Space & Value To Your Property

With today’s property market so unpredictable and the price of moving soaring, it might make more sense to add space to your property rather than move. Not only add space but also value to your property too.

5 top tips 

Lick of paint
Might sound cosmetic but a coat of new paint (keep the colour neutral) can make a house feel clean, hygienic and cared for. While you are at it, update the front door furniture if it’s looking tired, replace any rotting window timbers or loose tiles and give the front flower beds a weed. First impressions count.

Upgrade your windows & doors

Replacing old, tired windows and doors to energy efficient ones can not only had value to your property but also save you money on your energy bills. We have a massive selection of windows and doors, including double & triple glazing, residence9 windows, upvc and composite doors.

Add a conservatory
The key to a successful conservatory is to ensure that it flows from your existing rooms rather than looking as if it’s just been tacked on to the outside. A good one could add as much as 12% to the value of your home in London, 5% for the rest of the UK and give you a lot more living space. If you already have a conservatory maybe consider upgrading to a solid tiled roof and have a room you can use all year room. West Yorkshire Windows can upgrade your glass roof to a solid roof in a matter of days.

Install a new kitchen
The kitchen is what most house-hunters will look at first. Sparkling work surfaces and new appliances can woo a wavering buyer. An average new kitchen costs £8,000 and can add 6% to your property’s value, according to consumer watchdog Which?

The current trend is for open-plan living, so make sure your kitchen has a sense of space.

Add an extra bathroom
Bigger houses need more bathrooms, particularly family homes because nobody likes to queue in the morning! Make sure all your existing bathrooms are spotless, too as it sets the right tone.

Convert the garage into an office
A lot of today’s garages are no longer fit for purpose, having been designed when cars were smaller. They have become dead space and can easily be converted into another room. Before you do anything, though, find out what buyers are looking for in your area: is it houses with lots of bedrooms (families), or properties with an office (young professionals)

What’s in Store for 2018?

Opinions about the state of the market are always particularly free-flowing at the start of a new year and 2018 has been no different. The general consensus seems to be that while the requirement for white casement windows will continue to drop off somewhat, there is still demand for windows and doors and in in some product sectors, the demand is rising. It’s about choosing the right products to make and sell and the right companies to work with. West Yorkshire Windows has hit the ground running in 2018 to ensure it has everything homeowners need for their home improvement projects this year.

Growth areas among windows and doors, interestingly is among the higher ticket items. The homeowners that now have money to spend on home improvements are the more discerning consumers that are looking to differentiate their property or make the bigger ‘Grand Design’ changes to their homes. This can be extensions, conservatories (upgrading existing structures or building new), bi-fold doors or changing the colour of their windows to change the overall look of their forever home.

The main growth area we’ve seen directly at West Yorkshire Windows, in terms of products, is structures; mostly solid roof extensions. We spend far more time upgrading traditional PVC- U conservatories than selling them nowadays! We don’t see this changing as the combination of ‘creating extra useable space’ with a solid roof and ‘bringing the outside in’ using bi-folds is as popular as ever with homeowners.

Prepared for Growth

To ensure we’re well equipped to meet increasing demand for our products, we’ve been busy with acquisitions to expand our successful business model around the country. We acquired Coastline at the end of 2016 and Trent Valley Windows more recently. After a showroom refurbishment and re-launch of the Coastline brand, the subsidiary is now thriving, with its original team operating well as part of the West Yorkshire Windows group. The Trent Valley business we have acquired is very much an asset to us and by joining forces with the excellent team, we hope to grow into the region’s largest and best installer of windows, doors and conservatories. Add these acquisitions to two previous showroom openings in Chesterfield and Nottingham and this sees us starting 2018 with nine showrooms, as far south as Isle of Wight and as far north as Leeds.

Despite our significant expansion, our focus remains on excellent craftsmanship, value for money and outstanding customer service. Homeowners can find the products they’re looking for in some shape or form from numerous suppliers, but we want to provide a service they’ll remember, recommend and use again for their next project. It’s service, quality of products and quality and ease of the installation process that can set two companies far apart. We aim to set the standard for good practice.
