Five ways to successfully manage your home improvements

Thorough preparation is the secret to a successful project. Making a plan at the outset will give you a good idea of how long the work could take and the costs involved. Here are five steps to help you prepare for home improvements:

  1. Decide how much you will do yourself or whether you will hire a builder who acts as project manager.

  2. Make firm decisions about your project early on and stick to them. Changing your mind part way through can lead to delays, the need to buy more materials and higher labour costs.

  3. Under-budgeting is a common mistake. Be realistic rather than optimistic in your estimates. Set a minimum cost for the entire project and keep some money to one side to cover the unexpected. Monitor costs regularly.

  4. Ask for at least three competitive and detailed quotes from recommended contractors and check when they are available.

  5. Before you start any work, check if you need planning permission or building regulations, and how much this will cost, with your local authority.

Once you have a clear idea of how much your home improvements will cost, you can use our calculator to see if a Personal Loan is the right finance option for your needs.a new window.
