Replacing windows and repairing roofs
Everything in a new Barratt home is built to last and we include an additional ten-year structural warranty and a 2-year fixtures and fittings warranty.
An older home has no such buyer protection in place. Some may have wooden window frames that can rot and lose heat, meaning they will need replacing. Others may not even have double glazing throughout, adding a chilly breeze to those winter mornings.
One of the biggest costs a buyer faces is if the roof needs work, thanks to age or because it’s been battered by a bout of extreme weather. Leave that undone at your peril; if it’s not fixed it can lead to damp inside your house.
