Home improvement loans

Is your old kitchen just not cutting it anymore? Looking a bit dated? Fancy a new one?

Do you need extra space in your home for your growing family? Or would you like to breathe new life into your home with a new interior look? You could add value to your property too!

Do you want to stay in your property longer but need to extend the space? Maybe you’d like a conservatory, extension or a loft conversion - but don’t have the money saved?

If the answer to any of those is yes, then a home improvement loan from 1plus1 loans could be just what you need.

1plus1 loans could offer you a home improvement guarantor loan much more easily than you might think. All you need is someone who trusts you to be their plus1 and be guarantor for your loan repayments.

Our friendly staff will walk you through every step, making sure you can afford repayments and that you won’t fall on any hardship repaying. The loan is fixed term but, if you can afford to, you can settle the loan early and save yourself some cash. And don’t worry about hidden charges. There aren’t any.

As always, all credit is subject to meeting our credit worthiness and affordability criteria. We want to be sure that repayments won’t be a struggle for you.

Common home improvements

  • Extending or adding New rooms to your property for example a loft conversion.
  • Improving your kitchen – New appliances, kitchen tops and cupboards.
  • Improving your bathroom – A new bath, adding a shower or renovating the whole lot.
  • Insulation and heating – Adding a new efficient boiler, central heating or double glazing.
  • Garden Landscaping – Get the garden how you have always wanted it or even add a pond.

Increase your property value

Improving your home with a 1plus1 home improvement loan could increase the value of your property significantly. For example a loft conversion could increase the price of your property when you come to sell. It could sell more quickly too. Or perhaps an outdated kitchen is holding your property back?

We do recommend that you take advice when you’re aiming to add value to your home. Always do your research too and speak to an estate agent on which home improvements are most desirable in area you live in.

Tips for home improvement loans from 1plus1 loans

Once you decided which home improvements you want, always get quotes, (not just estimates), from at least 3 different tradesmen so the final bill doesn’t come as an unpleasant surprise.

Always do research on tradesmen you’re considering using. Check the quality of their work or speak to previous customers to make sure your home really does get improved!
