New isbuilt to last

There's no feeling like stepping into your new home. And whatever your plans are for tomorrow, we build our homes with a long and happy future in mind.

Written in the stars

Each year, the Home Builders Federation gives homebuilders a star rating, based on feedback from a customer satisfaction survey.

The survey is entirely independent and awards a star rating of one to five based on the answer to the question: 'Would you recommend your builder to a friend?'

We've been awarded five stars every year since 2009, which means over 90% of our homeowners would recommend us to their friends***. Knowing that we're making our homeowners happy is so important to us and we'll keep striving to provide you with the best new homes in the UK.

No worries

When you move into a Barratt home you won't have to scour the classifieds for tradesmen to tear out that avocado bathtub. We've got rid of the stress of repairs and renovations.

Everything in your new home has been built to last, from the foundations up, so you shouldn’t need to spend your weekends doing those frustrating odd jobs like painting your window sills (ours are uPVC, so they don't need constant upkeep).

And because your peace of mind really matters to us, your new Barratt home has a 2 year fixtures and fittings warranty, covering such things as appliances and windows.* We know the less you have to worry about, the more you can get on with living – and creating the memories that really make a home your own.

The house that Chris built

Chris Burdis knows a thing or two about what makes a Barratt home. He's part of Barratt's design team and has been helping bring their vision to life for over ten years. But he doesn't just draw the blueprints, he lives in a Barratt home too.

We've found that our energy bills are cheaper than you'd expect for a three bedroom property as the house needs minimal heating and warms up really quickly.



Chris and the Barratt designers know that creating a home built to last is a number one priority, that's why they use the best materials and latest building techniques to ensure that every Barratt home is a place you would be proud to call home.

I love living here but it's hard to stop working. Even when I'm relaxing on the sofa, I'm thinking about how we can keep making our homes even better



How we build your new Barratt home

Your new home is built in nine distinct stages. See why new is built to last.

    Once traffic management and health and safety plans are put in place for use of roads and walkways, the foundations are laid.

    The bricks are laid in several stages, with scaffolding installed incrementally at each stage.

Keeping you dry

You won't have to worry about flooding because we use measures like permeable paving.

Firm foundations

We believe that firm foundations are just the start. Our new homes are built to the highest standards, which is why we've kept winning awards for our building expertise for many years. The quality of our building materials and the standards we hold ourselves to means that a new Barratt home is the best way to invest in somewhere to call your own.

When you move into your new home, you can feel safe in the knowledge that we've built it to give you real peace of mind. Which means you can simply get down to the business of making your home a place you'll love to live. And that's when the fun starts.
