My Park Home is starting to look a bit tired and dated, can it be refurbished and how do I go about doing it?
Park homes, as with bricks and mortar properties should be regularly maintained to keep them in good condition. It may become necessary, especially with older models, to update kitchens, bathrooms, fixtures and fittings or in some cases repair or replace structural elements such as roofs, chassis, floors, ceilings and walls. This may be a great opportunity to upgrade your home to bring it up to the standard of the improved residential standard for park homes BS 3632. It’s also an opportunity to give a tired looking home a makeover, bringing it right up-to-date.
If you are considering having work carried out on your home it’s worth considering a few things first:
- Check your parks rules and speak to your park owner / manager before you plan or carry out any work – some parks may have certain restrictions that you will need to bear in mind. Reputable refurbishment companies may require written consent from the site owner prior to any work being started.
- If you are looking to refurbish rather than just redecorate, it might be worthwhile having a survey. This is so you can ensure the structure of the home will not be compromised, or planning regulations broken.
- To ensure you get a good deal from a reputable company, get a number of quotes and read other customers testimonials and reviews. It’s also important to make sure that the company you choose is fully insured and that any work carried out is guaranteed.
