Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

Snug have launched a new product called Home Plus Reports. It is a professional report prepared by a chartered architect that identifies potential improvements to your home and the added value it will achieve.

We visit you at your home and identify your home’s improvement potential.
We establish what this will cost and how much value it will add.
We make professional recommendations for how to achieve this added value and provide guidance on the legal process involved in such developments.
We summarise our findings in an easy to interpret report.
This allows you to decide how best to achieve your home’s full potential.
