If you are a bit of a DIYer and are considering your home improvement projects for the coming year, don’t get daunted by the prospect! There may be a lot of things on the list, but prioritise. Put the urgent projects at the top of the list, with any structural work that is needed included in this, and work your way down. And keep the list somewhere you can see it, so you have the satisfaction of seeing the jobs get crossed off as they are completed!
If there are jobs to do that may be beyond your own skills and experience, consider getting a professional in. You can get quotes for free via our Find a Tradesman page – all you do is fill in a simple form with your details and a brief description of the job, and you can receive up to 3 free quotes from reliable, insured tradesmen, local to you.
You can then have a good idea of the costs involved for your home improvements and you will be able to budget accordingly.
