Some happy news for house price increases

Are you fed up of the doom that sits over the housing market? Us too. So here’s some positive news, especially if you’re looking to make some home improvements.

Free advice on Loft & Garage Conversions

Did you know? Over 35% of homeowners would rather convert their lofts than move. With the average cost of an average house move at anything between £9 – £15,000 it isn’t surprising that the money can be better spent on extending. Perhaps your family is expanding and you need an extra bedroom or you work from home and want to maximise the space you already have by taking advantage of the unused roof area. Either way, it’s a good idea to talk through your ideas in the really early stages so you don’t make expensive mistakes later on. Read our impartial advice page here on Loft and Garage Conversions and feel free to email with any questions and we will get right back to you. Start now and you’ll be in time for …… Read More

It’s not only Wimbledon you can watch in 3D this year! We do 3D too…

This year, you can watch Wimbledon in 3D on TV (if you’ve got all the kit and caboodle)! And as the strawberries and champagne get under way, see what we have to offer in 3D too. Our wide range of bi-fold doors come in lots of configurations – from three doors to eight. And on our website, you can see how they actually work with our 3D configurator. You can select to have them opening inwards or outwards, change the view to see what they’d look like from the inside looking out and change the colours of the frames. We can’t promise the champagne and strawberries, but you could always ask! See for yourself right here. Read More

The future’s bright…the future is orangeries

We have Victorian and Edwardian P-shaped conservatories; B-shaped and L-shaped even T-shaped conservatories but the latest trend is for the Orangery. In effect it’s a flat roof with a glazed lantern built onto it for natural light and an elegant finish. They’re rather grand looking rooms and as we probably receive more conservatory enquiries than any other home improvement company in East Anglia, we can spot a new trend when we see one. See for yourself the array of designs and ideas that an orangery can add to your home here. Want to see one being built? Then watch our video and see how it’s done!
