National Home Improvements Month
This October marks ‘National Home Improvements’ month in the UK, and since a million of us are locked down in our homes while the coronavirus pandemic pauses our social life, we are deciding to make changes to our homes in order to help them give a new lease of life. This is giving a growth in landscaping companies, such as RG Contractors based in Solihull, West Midlands.
Following the coronavirus-induced economic downturn, the restoration of consumer confidence has been pivotal for recovery, and the home improvements sectors have proven no different. The government has undertaken radical procedures to assist with the recovery of the sector, such as Stamp Duty Holidays and radical planning reformations, aligned with the Prime Minister’s vision of a “build, build, build” strategy.
