If you are considering adding loft insulation, you could also consider adding loft insulation boards and invest in some upgrades to get an extra bedroom. According to valuers in The Halifax Home Improvement Survey 2006, loft conversions represent the best value for money. Prices start at around £8000 and most lofts with a roof height of at least 2.4 metres are suitable for conversion. Loft conversions are normally used to add another bedroom, and there’s often space for a value-boosting en-suite.

Getting a modern boiler also pays off. Investments to improve central heating and a modern boiler are a safe bet. Figures from Nationwide suggest this can add 13% to the value of a property.
