    High-quality sustainable homes
    a key influencer of property values, says report

    arrow Back to news 7th April 2016

    Location is no longer the only key driver of property values with the sustainability of homes now a key driver of a property’s investment potential too, according to research from housebuilders, Redrow.

    According to the report by Redrow, when people choose a home more than a quarter of those surveyed were willing to pay at least a six per cent premium for a home with sustainable features.


    In addition, almost two-thirds (65 per cent) of respondents felt confident that an ‘eco-home’ would save them money. The same number of respondents also believed that an ‘eco-home’ would provide them with a more comfortable place to live.


    In another recent survey by GoCompare mortgages, out of the top 20 property ‘must-haves’, issues associated with energy efficiency and the sustainability of homes were ranked at numbers 1, 2, 10 and 14; bucking the age-old view that location was the most important issue when buying a home.


    Another indication of people’s priorities changing over time is that features like reliable broadband connectivity and mobile signal are regarded as more important than having a garage, for instance.


    It’s certainly encouraging to see that consumer demand for high-quality sustainable properties is on the rise. As an industry, it’s vital that we as a whole deliver on these promises.


    At Sunsquare, as world leaders in the design and manufacturer of flat roof skylights, we are doing our utmost to provide our clients with the most energy efficient glazing that not only transforms living areas with abundant natural daylight but controlled, comfortable room temperatures too.


    Every rooflight that leaves our manufacturing centre is thermally broken, using our extruded aluminium profile, to help properties stay warmer and drier.


    For a skylight to be truly thermally broken you should expect to see polyamide sections dividing all materials that sit across the internal to external parts of a property. It’s the only effective means of ensuring insulation and the climatic control of a living space.
