How Can You Renovate Your Home this Winter?

With Winter in full swing, many people have put all of their home renovation plans and ideas to the back of their minds which they most likely won’t revisit until next summer when the sun is out shining again. During the Winter, there are some tasks that you understandably don’t want to be doing such as gardening, retiling a roof or cleaning the gutters. However, there are a number of home renovations you can complete throughout the winter months that will cause minimal disruption to you and your home and tick at least one item of the list for next summer.

Garage Door Installations

A garage door is often only replaced when your current garage door is broken, damaged, falling apart or really old, which represents a huge security risk. With the installation of a new modern garage door, you get the security and technical features of a modern-day home, whilst adding to the good looks of your property and finally, increasing the value of your home. These are also relatively quick installations bar any hiccups and therefore they are very popular installations to be completed during the winter months. If your garage is attached to your home, a new garage door can also improve the heat insulation of property, helping to reduce energy bills, especially during the winter months.

Window Replacements

Poorly fitted windows can be a real problem during the winter months. If they let energy escape through their cracks and let drafts in you could be hit with two issues. Rising energy costs due to needing the heating on for longer periods thanks to the energy that is escaping through these poorly fitted windows and drafts. If a window is fitted poorly, it could let cold winter air flow throughout your home, making for a very chilly and unwelcoming property. No one wants to come home to a freezing cold house. That’s why replacing your old windows during the winter months is a quick easy fix that won’t disrupt your family and will provide you with instant benefits.

Fitting a New Door

Similar to the points made above, a new door can provide similar benefits when it comes to drafts and energy saving as well as heightened security and phenomenal good looks. The need is even more important if your back or front door is on its last legs, the last thing you need is for your door to swell, cease to function or to break during the winter months, rendering it unusable or a hazard. This could be very costly and cause lots of distress to your family. Getting a new door will not only improve all aspects mentioned above instantly but it will also raise the value of your property. Again, a new door does not take a long time to fit and therefore it is a perfect renovation for the winter months as it will cause minimal disruption to your home whilst giving you plenty of benefits to enjoy.

The Green Homes Grant Struggles Continue

Now it has come to light that only a mere 5% of the budget has been used so far. An article from the Guardian (click here to read) has exposed yet more short comings when it comes to the Green Homes Grant with questions now being asked to the Government about what is actually happenin...
