Hi I’m Jon.
This website seeks to help those searching for the basics about improving their home. It offers an independent view, trying to balance the interests of both homeowners and installers. Great Home was set up after a struggle to find information on major investments in the home, such as replacing a boiler or repairing the roof on a house and thought that others may appreciate reading what was learnt in the process. Information about many aspects of improving a home continues to be added. My own career background is in marketing of building products. I have spent time on construction sites, so can appreciate the practical challenges facing those in the building industry. I completed a Masters in Energy & Sustainable Development in 2018 from De Montfort University to add to an MBA from Warwick Business School.
I hope the site helps you achieve what you need. If you think anything is missing or not well explained then please feel free to let us know via the comment box on the relevant page or via the contact us page.
Using industry contacts we research and write articles about home improvements to try and even up the knowledge gap between specialist tradesman who do the job every day and home-owners who are maybe buying building services for the first and only time in their lives. Income comes from paid adverts on the site and also from affiliates who pay Great Home for leads on different building services. Great Home never lets advertisers or affiliates influence editorial content and we trust all our affiliates to provide a professional and high quality service. We have never received an adverse comment about any of our affiliate partners.

PS In 2019 content from the Great Home Heating website address (new-boiler-cost.co.uk) was moved to the Great Home main site.
