Why Should You Consider Property Refurbishment?
Before we run through the list of home improvement options, it might be good to know why you should consider it in the first place. Perhaps one of the main reasons is that it improves appearance, allowing you to release your creative flair and build your dream home. Having a home that is fully updated will offer you a sense of pride and satisfaction, whilst visitors will be left feeling jealous! It can also add value to your property by having the latest technology installed. It might also be a great way for you to add some extra space to your home, whilst also making it more secure.
Investing in a new window frame can have countless benefits. For aluminium windows, those benefits include durability, thermal efficiency and low maintenance. Aluminium windows can last around thirty years because of their resistance to outside elements which prevents them from rotting. The design of aluminium windows also allows for thermal efficiency, meaning that your house will contain the heat better in the winter months. This is particularly effective because it reduces your utility bills.
Allowing natural light in and connecting your outdoor area to the inside, having bi-fold doors is an effective way to improve the beauty of your home.

The primary purpose of a house extension is that it provides you with extra space. A house extension could be used for a new dining room, bedroom or even a home office. As well as making large sociable spaces, house extensions are great for modernising and improving the efficiency of your home.
Flush Sash Windows
If you have windows that have wooden frames, then flush sash windows could be the perfect replacement. These types of windows are perfect for those who are living in older style houses, the window sash sits flush within the frame. It doesn’t compromise on modern features either, with its thermal efficiency and highly secure design.
It is essential that your gutters are replaced every couple of years or so. If you have gutters that are clogged up, this makes it easier for water to enter the house. As a result, you might experience some water damage in your home. Guttering plays a vital role in the protection and appearance of your home, so it should almost certainly not be overlooked.
As a result of COVID-19, the notion of working from home has become commonplace for many of us. Renovating your home by having an extension could be a great way for you to create a home office. Not only does working from home save you money on commuting, but it also means you can keep an eye on things in the house whilst you’re working, such as children or pets. Having a house extension to build an office means that you can build the perfect working environment from the comfort of your home.
It can sometimes be difficult knowing what the differences are between a conservatory and an orangery but essentially, orangeries hold the same purpose but have a much more modern look. Orangeries can be characterised by its brick structure with large windows which offers more privacy than a classic conservatory. It could be said that orangeries fall somewhere in between the style of conservatories and house extensions, by combining the privacy and insulation of an extension and coupling this with the light and airy feel of a conservatory.
It goes without saying that having a porch installation could be a great addition to any home, with its ability to improve your home’s curb appeal and enhance the ambience of your home. Porches are often the first thing people see when they step into your home, so having a sophisticated porch will make all the difference in making your guests leave with a lasting impression. As well as this, porches are a great way to store things such as shoes, brollies and keys, making your house tidier in the process.
Having a strong and secure roof is essential to keep your house comfortable and warm. If you have a roof that is ageing and is looking worse for wear, then it might develop weak spots and then start to leak. Nobody wants to live in a house where there are leaks or draughts, so it might be a good idea to look at a roof replacement as soon as you spot any weaknesses. At Ken Rhodes Group our bespoke roofs provide customers with creative freedom, allowing customers to choose from a selection of tile colours, glazing placements, glass options, roof shapes and more. Our roofs also use NASA satellite data to ensure that your roof has the capabilities to withstand wind and weather conditions that are likely to occur in your area.
Sliding Sash Windows
Known as a great alternative to traditional timber frames, sliding sash windows have a large glazed area and clean finish which would be a fitting addition to any home. Sliding sash windows are so versatile that they can complement any type of home, whether you own a rustic cottage or a modern house in the city. Not losing its roots of having a traditional appearance, a benefit of these windows is that they are available with modern uPVC systems.
Tilt and Turn Windows
One of the main benefits of having tilt and turn windows installed is that it allows flexibility when it comes to ventilation. These windows don’t need to be fully open to let air into your home, which means you have more control over how much of a draught is being let into your home. In addition, tilt and turn windows also have added safety benefits too by allowing greater access to exit the house in the event of a fire. Considering that the design offers such a large glazed area, this means that you can benefit from better light and views.
