Financing your project
A home improvement project may involve renovating a new property or saving on moving costs by using the money to add space and value to your home. With easily obtainable guidance and access to materials, many people have the confidence to plan a sizable project.
Financing your project is the most important element of the planning phase and requires monitoring throughout. The Home Owners Alliance offer detailed guidance about how to budget for a home improvement project and advise on the points to consider before you start work.
Find out more about financing your home improvement project1 from the Home Owners Alliance website.

Once costs have been estimated, the quick quote finance calculator from Selina Advance can take all of the hard work out of searching and securing the funds needed for your project.
