There are many things which make a house easier to sell, such as being in a good state of repair and decoration, to being in the right area and near the right schools. Another main area to ensure looks right is the garden. The front garden gives potential buyers their first impression, and when they view the back garden, then this also needs to impress potential buyers. Even simple things like ensuring the grass is cut and all weeds removed from any borders will help. Tidy away any random items, so the garden displays an uncluttered look. Garden buildings can also play a part, whether it’s a garden shed or any other type of outbuilding. If your outbuilding has been lined and insulated, then this makes your house a much better proposition. And if it’s looking spick and span and, when combined with a tidy garden, will make your home more desirable.
The attraction of an insulated garden shed is very appealing as this can give prospective purchasers an excellent reason to choose your house. This will provide them with an opportunity to carry on using it as an office, or maybe they can use it as a recreation or craft room. Possible other uses are as a gloried den for the children which they would love. You can always look on the internet and ask what is the cheapest way to insulate a garden building or about insulation DIY options?
The choice of garden buildings is staggering with many different types available, and you can see a good range on our web site. The most important consideration is to ensure it is lined and insulated (I always think this should be insulated and lined as the insulation has to go in before the lining. But it is typically described as lined and insulated, why I don’t know) The reason for the insulation option is to help to keep the building warmer in winter and more importantly, and not always appreciated, is to keep it cooler in the summer.
You need to ensure that the internal height is sufficient as many of the cheap (made down to a price) sheds and garden buildings are relatively low. This is important as a low ceiling height will make it a little claustrophobic. Ensure that the building is made from T&G (tongue and grooved) timber and also, for long life, from redwood deal and not the cheaper white wood.
Where ever possible order double glazed doors and windows as this will help to keep the warmth in during the winter and the heat out during the summer making the building pleasant all year round. There are several options for the roof covering from heavy-duty felt, long-lasting Onduline roofing, felt tiles, cedar shingles or even a slatted roof. All will keep your new building dry from rain and snow, so the choice is cosmetic.
The managing director of property developers, Puddlestone, said that there had been a significant rise if the demand for homes with insulated buildings in the gardens and this has made those homes more attractive and easier to sell. This is put down partly to the increase in people wanting to work from home due to the financial crisis. Having said that it does not always mean that the sale value will reflect the cost of the home office just that it makes the home easier to sell.
However, if you are thinking of investing in an insulated building for the garden, it is good to know that it will help in the future to sell your home. So you have had the benefit of whilst you are living there, and you also have the confidence that when you decide to move on, it should be easier to do so.
