With the August Bank Holiday weekend approaching, homeowners in Staffordshire are being encouraged to down tools and consider the benefits of owning a new home.
DIY home improvements often don’t go to plan, resulting in extra work, additional expense and in extreme cases personal injuries, according to information uncovered in research conducted by One Poll on behalf of Barratt Homes.
The research exposed a range of DIY disasters resulting in personal injuries caused by drills, screwdrivers and chisels, which the homebuilder says can be easily avoided when buying new instead of fixing up an older property.
Graydon Worthing, Sales Director at Barratt Homes West Midlands, said: “DIY home improvements on older properties can have disastrous results, but with a new home, any large DIY projects and renovations can be avoided, as we ensure your new home is already perfectly prepared for when you move in.
“What’s more, if you reserve early in the build process you can customise your home with extras from the Barratt Choices range to ensure it perfectly complements you and your lifestyle.”
The Choices range includes personalisation options. From fittings and flooring to appliances and storage solutions, there is a wide choice in order to suit every taste, allowing a buyer to truly make their new house a home. All options are installed by professionals and ready for the day you move in.
Graydon continued: “We understand that buying a home is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make and so, for peace of mind, all Barratt homes also come with a two-year fixtures and fittings warranty as standard.”
The warranty is provided by the National House Building Council (NHBC) and covers the cost of fixing any damage in the unlikely event that something does go wrong.
Instead of facing potential DIY disasters this Bank Holiday weekend, homeowners and first-time buyers alike are encouraged to visit any of Barratt Homes’ developments across Shropshire and discover a new DIY-free home.
