Ever since lockdown, Britain has become a nation of home improvement enthusiasts. During that extended stay indoors, millions of us suddenly turned our hands to gardening or finally got around to doing those bits of DIY that we’d been forever putting off. But some home enhancements are best left to the experts, such as the...
Record highs, seasonal lows, mammoth lighting strikes and flash flooding. The summer has been a really mixed bag so far, so how knows what the winter will be like? If we were in your shoes, we would take a pessimistic view and anticipate a really cold one, making energy efficient enhancements at home now to...
Did the weather peak too soon? We had a glorious June, but July has been pretty wet so far and not so warm either, considering it’s meant to be the summer season! But there’s time yet for things to improve and for the summer to be a scorcher (we’re forever optimistic!). If temperatures rise again...
Many would assume that you only have to get planning permission for a home improvement project when it involves a drastic change to a house, such as adding a large extension onto it. You may not necessarily expect to have to potentially obtain planning permission for a porch, but that is sometimes the case. It...

Time can drag when you have to spend such a long period indoors, but not if you make the most of it and use your house to the max. If you have a conservatory, we hope you have been going in there to home-school the kids and have your video-calls with your friends. That won’t...
Hopefully, the name ‘FENSA’ will mean something to you as the government-authorised scheme, which regulates companies involved in the double glazing industry, has been advertised quite frequently on TV over the past couple of years. FENSA is short for the Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme and their ad campaign urges householders to use FENSA-approved installers for their...
All this time spent at home may have got you thinking about making changes to your house, such as having your present windows and doors taken out and exchanged for more secure and more attractive replacements. That’s the sort of job you need to leave to a professional window and door company, and there’s no-one...
In advance of summer, we know that lots of householders will have been hoping to extend their home in time for its arrival. It’s also likely that some of you will be wishing you had extended your home prior to the lockdown because it feels overcrowded at the moment. Although, we cannot physically extend your...
