uPVC Casement Window Installers

The old saying ‘Location, location, location’ still rings true today when it comes to buying a home. One of the biggest factors in determining the value of a home is its location. But if you live in Kingswinford, Stourbridge, Halesowen or surrounding areas, you are fortunate enough to already have a home in one of the most desirable parts of the country, thanks to the region’s excellent educational facilities, fantastic transport links, rich history and culture, and proximity to some of England’s lushest and most picturesque countryside.

So, you’ve got the location sorted, but there are several sensible home improvements you can make that will not only make your home more comfortable to live in but will add to its value too.

In this blog, we’ll look at the best modern ways to add value to your West Midlands home, without the need to add an expensive and disruptive extension. From upgrading to the latest flush uPVC window designs to ultra-efficient triple glazing, from installing a new modern LivinRoom conservatory to adding a tiled roof to an existing conservatory, or fitting timeless classics like a new front porch or bi-fold doors, there are a number of ways to improve your home and increase its value.


How can I add value to my house in Kingswinford, Stourbridge or Halesowen without extending it?

If you’re looking to add value to your home in Kingswinford, Stourbridge or Halesowen, there are a number of modern ways to do so without needing to extend.

One of the best ways to increase the value of your house is to expand the living space available, by making improvements such as adding a new conservatory, making an existing conservatory more useable by upgrading to a tiled roof, or installing a new front porch.

Another way to add value to your home is by improving its energy efficiency, which can also save you money on utility costs at the same time. Investing in improvements to the exterior of your home, such as new windows and doors can also add value and improve kerb appeal. Lastly, adding smart home technology such as internet-connected locks and lights can enhance convenience and security without costing too much.

By using these modern approaches to adding value to your home, you can create a space that is comfortable, functional, safe, and stylish… and worth more.

Home improvements that expand living space

Adding to the available space in your home is a surefire way to increase its value, but that doesn’t mean you need to start knocking down walls and building extensions. Similarly desirable effects can be enjoyed for a fraction of the cost and with a lot less disruption by adding a new conservatory, making an old conservatory more useable, or adding an entrance porch.

LivinRoom Conservatory

A LivinRoom conservatory is a truly modern alternative to a traditional home extension, with an elegant roof design that floods the space with natural light. Unlike a conventional fully-glazed conservatory, a LivinRoom install allows the solid walls and roof perimeter to be customised to create a truly unique space that really feels part of your home.

Equinox Tiled Roof

Having a conservatory that’s too hot during the summer and too cold during the winter is a waste of valuable living space, but it’s easily reclaimed by adding a tiled roof to help reduce heat loss, noise, and other issues associated with old-style conservatories to create a room that can be enjoyed all year round.

As one of just 22 Equinox Select installers in all of the UK, DW Windows are the local expert in the Kingswinford, Stourbridge and Halesowen areas when it comes to updating your conservatory roof.

Front Porches

Often overlooked compared to conservatories and garden buildings, a classic front porch can be the simple solution to both make your home more convenient and add to its value. Offering a dedicated area for muddy shoes and damp coats, a front porch helps keep the rest of your home clean and dry. Plus, they offer an added level of security to your main front door too.

Energy-efficient home improvements for West Midlands homes

One of the best ways to add value to a home in Kingswinford, Stourbridge or Halesowen is to improve its energy efficiency. Replacing old windows with the latest double-glazing or triple-glazing will help to lock the heat in, as well as help to keep noise out. The result is a warmer home that uses less energy to heat, as well as improved comfort and increased security too.

Upgrading to a composite front door is another easy way to improve your home’s energy efficiency, with the added benefit of greater security and enhancing the overall look of your property too. Thanks to a range of colours and styles, advanced multipoint locking systems, weatherproof finishes, and anti-tamper glazing options – in addition to the vastly improved energy efficiency of the composite construction – a new front door is a simple way to add value to your Kingswinford, Stourbridge or Halesowen-based home.

What home improvements will add the most value to my West Midlands homes in 2023?

Home improvements are a great way to add value to your West Midlands home, and they can be done in a number of ways to suit all budgets. A new composite front door is relatively inexpensive, yet will typically increase your home’s value by around 75% of the costs of installing one. Fitting new double-glazed windows offer a fantastic return on investment, increasing your home’s value by as much as £20,000 to £25,000.

At the other end of the scale, a loft conversion or rear extension will add the most value, but will also require significant investment, take longer to complete, and cause more disruption while work is being carried out. Others, like installing solar panels, may reduce the running costs of a home but do little to increase its overall value.
