With the housing market beginning to boom in the UK, many homeowners are thinking about placing their homes on the market. If you are looking at doing the same then we have 5 plumbing upgrades you can carry out to easily add value to your home.
1. Installing New Pipes
If your home still has a system that uses galvanised pipes, it’s time to get them upgraded. Galvanised pipes are prone to internal corrosion, damaging your system and giving your water a nasty taste. Copper and PVC pipes are a great alternative to galvanised pipes that will not only add value to your home but also improve your plumbing system.
2. Replacing Old Taps and Showers
You don’t need to replace your bathroom completely to make a large difference to your home. You can easily improve the style of rooms by making small changes like installing brand new stylish taps or modern shower fixtures. Upgrading these items will give your home an instant appeal to home buyers and again improve the functionality of your home.
3. Installing a Dual Kitchen Sink
Installing a double sink is a simple upgrade in most cases, but can make a big difference to the appeal of your house. Most new houses are fitted with either a dual sink or one and half sinks. Installing a new sink is a quick and easy task that can be carried out by your plumber and will make all your day-to-day tasks much more convenient.
4. Adding an Ensuite
Whilst not a quick and easy fix to carry out, adding a ensuite to the master bedroom will increase the value of your home straight away. Your plumber will be able to advise you on design, cost and time scale.
5. Getting a New Boiler Fitted
Arguably one of the most important things you can do to add value to your home is to upgrade/install a new boiler, house buyers will not want to buy a home with heating issues. Installing a new boiler will increase your house price by an average of £8K according to the Go Compare website.
