It is important you ensure are able to keep up repayments on your loan as missed payments may effect your credit score and cause an increase in the cost of future credit as well as the availability

Once you have decided you are going to take out a personal loan you need to consider who you are going borrow from, high street banks are the biggest provider of personal loans, but you may face rejection if you have an adverse credit rating. Before applying for a personal loan it may be worth examining your credit profile, this can be carried out with the credit agencies such as Equifax or Experian. If you find that you have a poor credit score there may still be providers available but may need to find a more specialist personal loan lender.

Personal loans range from 1,000 up to 15,000, usually over a term of a maximum of 15 years. personal loans can be used for almost any purpose and can help you spread the cost of your home improvement project (although you will end up paying more over the term of the loan). Common home improvement projects funded by a personal loan includes, replacement windows, adding a conservatory, converting a loft or garage, repairing a roof, adding patio door, garden landscaping really anything that cost up to 15,000. It is important you properly budget your home improvement project and borrow enough money to complete the job.
