Home improvement loans pass £1m mark in Windsor

Home improvement loans pass £1m mark in Windsor Grants to undertake DIY home improvements or pay for professional workers have hit the £1 million mark in Windsor and Maidenhead.

The Royal Borough has made the funding available to over-60s in the last two years, in a bid to make older homeowners more secure and comfortable.

Funding offered by the local authority has been used to complete tasks such as double glazing, wall and loft insulation, rewiring, repairs to roofs and installing energy-efficient solar panels.

Payment for new boilers and replacement kitchens has also come out of the loans.

Cllr Simon Dudley, lead member for adult and community services at the Royal Borough, said: "This loan scheme has proved extremely popular among senior borough homeowners and we have received many positive endorsements from borrowers and their families.

"Its success certainly reinforces our commitment to helping our more senior residents reap the benefits that home improvements can bring as they approach or enjoy retirement."
