Property Renovations East Kilbride. Carefully planned renovations will transform your property with a unique touch. Renovations are not always carried out to picture-perfect cottages and regal period properties. More and more people are seeing the advantages of buying less than beautiful post-war properties – they’re often cheaper, with lots of light and open spaces – over period homes. And the best bit is that these properties provide a great opportunity to give the exterior a completely new look, with new cladding, roofing materials and window treatments. If, on the other hand, you have a period property to renovate then it is unlikely that the exterior will have completely withstood the test of time — and cladding and external details will most likely have taken a battering over the years and would benefit from upgrading.

Property Renovations East Kilbride. Before you consider the larger-scale improvements, bear in mind that it is often the smaller, seemingly insignificant details that can make all the difference to the overall external appearance of a house. Take a look at the rainwater goods. Cracked, discoloured plastic rainwater goods do nothing for the appearance and new replacements will hugely smarten things up. Although cast iron is a fantastic and really good-looking choice for period homes, it is far more expensive than PVCu and may not be a priority if you are at the end of DON’T FORGET THE SMALL STUFF your budget.

Contemporary makeovers suit rainwater goods in metals such as copper, galvanised steel and aluminium (try Lindab). Repainting and, where necessary, replacing the timber work – such as fascia boards and finials – will also add to the façade. Adding a porch is a great way to add character. Period homes often had open or closed porches, or just a canopy, so if the original is missing, consider having a new one made. And a simple fl at-roofed canopy makes a great addition to a contemporary makeover.
