Hi I’m Jon.
This website seeks to help those searching for the basics about improving their home. We offer an independent view and our approach is to balance the interests of homeowners and installers. Great Home was set up after we struggled 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 we learnt in the process. Since then we have kept adding more information about many aspects of improving a home. My own career background is in the marketing of building products and I have also spent time working on a construction site so I can appreciate the practical challenges facing those in the building industry.
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. We earn income from paid adverts on the site and also from affiliates who pay us for leads on different building services. We never let our 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 We recently moved content from our Great Home Heating website address (new-boiler-cost.co.uk) to the Great Home main site.
