average cost of home improvements

  • Many home improvements can cost more than the value they add according to new research by buying agent Henry Pryor and GoCompare Home insurance.
  • Improvements such as new flooring and replacing kitchens and bathrooms (the most popular home improvements) are unlikely to yield a profit for many homeowners. At £7,000 the average cost of a new kitchen is twice as expensive as the estimated value it adds to a property.
  • In comparison, energy improvements, such as a new boiler or central heating system, can increase the price of a property by close to 4%, the equivalent to just over £9,000. A new boiler costs around £2,000, providing the householder with a net profit of close to £7,000.

This new activity is really gathering pace and popularity in Reddish. Its quite simple and lots of fun…

1 – Collect some rocks

2 – Decorate your rocks (on the back, write something along the lines of “If found, please post on “Reddish Rocks” on Facebook”) Rocks can be decorated using paint, chalk, sharpie pens, glitter etc. Please make sure your designs are child friendly!

3 – Hide your rocks in safe, public places

4 – Search for hidden rocks and when you find one (or a few), post a photo on this group then re-hide it for somebody else to find. This “game” is being enjoyed by children as well as the grown up and a great way to get out in the fresh air. Have fun!
