Starting a new home improvement project

17/12/2014

Financing home improvementsToo many times I see people embarking on a home improvement project without thinking it through. The first thing I would suggest you do is to get your finances sorted. An architect is likely to cost you £600 – £1,000, which is money wasted if you then can’t raise the money to fund it.

How about approaching it this way instead?

  • Check your savings and contact your lender to find out what you can borrow that’s affordable for you to pay back.
  • Once you have a budget in place, then it’s time to speak to a reputable builder, such as K.J. Hill in Bedford. Call them in and tell them what you would like them to do and ask for a ball park figure.
  • If this ball park figure is within your budget, and you’re happy with the builder, ask them to recommend an architect.
  • If this ball park figure is over your budget, explain this to your builder and you can then start a discussion that will show you what they can do within your budget. It’s about finding a compromise that will give you what you need, at a price you can afford and your builder is able to work with.
