Home improvement loans can add value to your property and taking out an unsecured personal loan can be a good way to fund this. It’s an investment into the future value of your home and can potentially pay for itself in part or in full as the worth of the building grows.

There’s another possibility where home improvement is concerned: something broke! Houses are filled with devices like boilers that will need replacing as time passes. This can be an expensive surprise for you as a home-owner and it’s a common story to be left in a tight spot financially as a result of something breaking or failing.

There are millions of home-owners across Britain who have tallied up what they need and come up a little bit short. Everyday Loans is committed to making your requirements and dreams a reality with a direct loan that suits you.

We also know that not everyone’s credit history is perfect. Mistakes happen, and many responsible adults are turned down by other lenders because of a history they are working to build back up. We are more flexible than other providers and it is our goal to make home improvement loans available to those with bad credit when they need it most.

With your direct loan from us, you can take care of your home improvement needs in full and repay your loan on a schedule that spreads the costs evenly. Before you know it, your DIY project or replacement will be completed, and your house value may positively be affected.

Everyday Loans offers loans for home improvement for people with bad credit, so why not apply now and see if we can help you create your perfect home. It’s what we are here to do – help you.

What you need to know about home improvement loans

Houses are fantastic investments, but they sometimes need a little work to say the least! Home improvements can add value to your property, helping to pay for the work, but the capital required can still be prohibitive for many owners. Taking out a loan for home improvement can be a sensible choice, as your property will increase in value after works are done – and you get to enjoy the fruits of all that hard work after it’s completed!

A poorer than average credit core can be troublesome when looking for a home improvement loan. Not great if you have an urgent need like an extra room in that house! We all need financial assistance now and then, and major life expenses like redecorating a house or extending it can be out of the realm of possibility without help.

The great news is that we are here to help should you find yourself in this situation. If you’ve been refused elsewhere in the past, chances are good that we’ll be able to support your goals and dreams with the credit you need.

  • Q1: What does APR mean?

    Annual percentage rate. APR means the amount that you’ll be paying back throughout your loan. APR isn’t quite a straightforward calculation as your loan repayments involve compound interest, which can be explained in a little more detail here. While this might be a bit tricky to get your head around (you won’t be simply paying back £1,100 on a £1000 loan at 10% APR for instance), we’ve made it a priority for our financial advisors to clearly break down costs should you choose to apply for a loan with us. No hidden fees – guaranteed. Whatever your loan purpose, such as home improvement, APR refers to how much you pay back.

  • Q2: Can you tell me whether I can still get a home improvement loan with lower credit?

    Compared to the big institutions we all know of such as a Barclaycard or HSBC, our home improvement loans are more lenient. A bank is strict with its lending decisions and a poor credit rating is a serious downside if you apply for a loan with them. Everyday Loans is a little different because we cater to people who still have a legitimate need for a loan but haven’t been successful before.

  • Q3: Will my credit score go up after a loan?

    If you mean by just taking out a loan, the answer is no. There is no bonus to being accepted; the potential benefit instead lies in the repayments. Credit scores are all about being indicators of your past, present and future spending habits and trends. Let’s say you completed all your repayments on time for your home improvement loan; this indicates that you have improved your reliability and responsibility where money is concerned and that translates to an improvement in your credit score.

  • Q4: Am I going to see a change in my score when I apply?

    For some ‘standard’ loans, you will get a mark place on your record that shows you made an application. You can see a reduction in your credit score if you make a large number of these in a short space of time; this is because it can seem to indicate that you are finding it hard to be accepted for a loan and have been refused by other lenders. Everyday Loans is a little different thanks to the Soft Search technology that we use in our processing. This means that you don’t get a mark on your credit history if you apply for a loan to renovate your home with us.

Home Improvement Loans FAQs

Here we’ll go into a bit more detail on how an Everyday Loans loan works, and how the process can be easily completed so you can get started on your DIY or paid projects! While we’re more lenient with our process, there are a few hard requirements that you must meet for us to consider your loan further.

  • Q1: Does an Everyday Loans application take lots of time?

    Certainly not. We know you need finances fast in some situations, and building projects are no exception! In almost all cases we process your application and send you your money very quickly. The way it works is simple: You make your application online, and if successful receive a ‘conditional approval’. This is followed by you making an appointment to visit the Everyday Loans branch office that is nearest, where you’ll have a friendly and fast meeting with one of our team members who will lay out the fine print and formalise the loan. After that, the funds are with you in record time.

  • Q2: Are you a direct lender?

    Yes. Our head office is in Bourne End, Buckinghamshire, and we are a direct lender.

  • Q3: Can I top up my loan?

    We do offer this, as long as we can see you’ve been on time with your repayments so far. Top ups are negotiated with your local branch on a case by case basis.

  • Q4: What are the requirements for a loan with you?

    The good news is they aren’t hard to meet; you simply need to be a UK resident and have employment and also have an account with any UK bank. If you tick all these boxes, we’ll be happy to consider your loan (with no mark on your score when you apply).
