House & Home

The images on this page show examples of council homes before and after improvement work. Home improvements are a big expense, so you want to make sure you’re getting a decent return on investment (ROI) out of them. The first thing you should always invest in is home maintenance. A newly finished bathroom or kitchen isn’t going to help sell your house if your roof leaks. Make sure you keep priorities. From a single room improvement, kitchens & baths, condos and whole house renovations, to new custom homes; our diverse in-house group of professionals allows us to put together the right team – specific to your project.

Love where you live, but not your home? Elevate your expectations, with Dale Alcock Home Improvement. Since 1997, we’ve been transforming WA homes and lives through beautiful renovations and extensions Perth wide. As your complete bespoke design and construction service, we’re purposely set up to take care of your entire home improvement journey from start to finish. View our kitchen and bathroom renovations, home extensions and single or second storey additions, even granny flats (Perth). Looking to complete a character home restoration ? We can help with that too.

Alternatively you can opt for a personal loan which will cost you slightly more in interest, but could be a much quicker and simpler route. Overall it might even be cheaper because you will pay it off quicker. Personal loans last up to five years, and you can usually borrow up to £25,000 on an unsecured loan, which will cover most smaller projects.

Tired carpet throughout the house might be driving you crazy. But by buying new carpets at an average cost of £4,000 you are likely to get a 50% return. Even if you’re a weekend warrior with a well-stocked workshop, not all home improvement projects are suitable to do yourself (or at least, without the help of a professional). Know your limits , start small if you’re a beginner, and then keep calm and DIY on (if you so wish).

We’re committed to providing you with a home that’s in good repair, modern and safe to live in. Each year we spend millions improving, maintaining and adapting our homes. We do this through planned programmes of work and we also allow you to make small improvements yourself, with our permission. Today’s housing market is leaner, pricier and more competitive than ever – and that has more homeowners deciding to remodel rather than move. Home renovation is a booming business. The choices for upgrades are endless, but some offer a far better payback than others.
