If you’re thinking about renovating, take a look at this newly compiled list of the most popular home improvements in the UK before you start a project. It might provide you with inspiration – just make sure that you call Wrexham commercial electricians first if there are big electrical jobs to do.
Put together by Gocompare.com Home Insurance, the top ten renovation projects that have been completed in the last three years are having a new bathroom fitted, redoing the kitchen, fitting a new boiler or central heating system, doing up the garden, opting for an extension, knocking through rooms, having solar panels fitted, attic conversions, extra bedrooms and cellar conversions.
Ben Wilson, spokesman for the organisation, reminded people to make sure that they review their home insurance policies after they’ve carried out the work so that their new investments are definitely covered.
“As well as making your home a nicer place to live, a major renovation project can add to the value of your property and household contents,” he went on to say.
While it might be tempting to do the entire project yourself, there are many dangerous jobs out there that you will need to call out a qualified electrician to come and do. Since 2005, all electrical work, whether it’s done professionally or otherwise, must be done in accordance with Part P of the Building Regulations in order to keep inhabitants of the house safe.
By law, either the landlord or homeowner must be able to provide proof that all electrical installations meet the regulations, or they will be committing a criminal offence.
