When you think of adding value to your home, the first things that likely come to mind are big, expensive renovations such as kitchen remodelling and adding an extension or conservatory.
However, you can make smaller, less costly changes to your home that add value. Boarding your loft gives a host of benefits to your house, so it’s no surprise that you can increase home value with loft boarding.
In what ways does loft boarding add value to your home?
Transforming your loft will increase the home’s value in several ways; here is a list of some of the main reasons you’ll benefit from loft boarding:
Added Monetary Value
Loft boarding turns your loft into an accessible, functional space which will significantly add to the value and appeal of your property on the market as there is essentially an additional room included for use. The new floor space can be listed as an additional feature to the home, and the price can be marked-up as a result. It is estimated that you can increase your home value with loft boarding by up to 10%, but this varies depending on the loft size and how much of it is boarded.
The additional space you get from a boarded loft will add value to the rest of your home as you’ve made better use of the available space and given the homeowner better storage options and a solution to the clutter every home has. A dedicated area for your belongings helps with decluttering and gaining up to 50% more floor space means that rather than haphazardly strewn around the house, your possessions have a great storage solution which is valuable to both you and future owners.
Save money on heating bills
Standard loft boarding over your joists will compact and squash your insulation flat so it can’t trap air and work properly. However, using a raised loft boarding system like the LoftZone StoreFloor can protect your insulation whilst still having a secure boarded platform for storage space. Having your insulation retain its full depth means it works effectively and will help you to save money on your heating bills. A properly insulated loft will add value by providing a warmer, more cost-effective home and also make it a more lucrative offer to potential buyers. Insulation that is protected also has a reduced risk of forming damp, which can lead to issues such as mould and wood rot, meaning you’ll save yourself money on these potential repair and replacement costs.
Loft boarding is an affordable solution you can install yourself or have installed by a professional. You can even do a raised loft board system without breaking the bank, and it more than pays for itself in the long term with the value it will add to your home from reduced heating bills. As well as being cheaper than more significant conversions, loft boarding is also a lot less invasive and can be completed in under a day rather than weeks. You will still be able to utilise the majority of your house during this time, so the installation will not disrupt you from going about your day.
