Home Improvement Franchises

The UK DIY market alone was forecast to be worth over £8.3bn in 2017 so the home improvement market in the UK is a huge opportunity for anyone interested in the sector.

So what sort of home improvement franchises are available? Some of the different types of home improvement franchises include;

  • Granite worktops and other granite sheets for kitchen and bathroom renovations
  • Locksmith franchises
  • Guttering & roofing
  • Disaster recover, fire, flood etc
  • Drive way construction and cleaning

As more and more pressure is put on governments and local authority to build more new homes this will no doubt increase demand for the above for both the new home build market and ongoing for renovation and repair works. Many people seeking this sort of opportunity may already have a trade and industry experience and wish to work for themselves but with the backing of a franchise brand to help with new business generation and any existing contractual business locally but all franchises usually offer full training and support so dependant on the home improvement franchise this could be a way for someone to change direction.

As with any business opportunity or business purchase you need to take professional advice and carry out due diligence before you invest.
