THE HOME YOU’VE WORKED FOR


That actually works.

You have had to work pretty hard for the home that you live in, so we want to make sure that it works for you. Making sure that it works for your family and the families that live there after you too. This is because we are here to fix a bigger problem: we want the homes of the UK to be better.

We take a holistic approach to improving your property. We don’t seek to cut corners, we’re looking for the heart of any problem that may be present in the existing structure, wanting to give you a complete solution when we make your home a better place to live. Integrated use of materials and attention to detail throughout.

A note to our customers


A note to our customers


*A note to all our customers: transforming your home doesn’t happen by magic!

It is a journey, as big, important and as challenging as any you will make in your lives.

Our team are all human beings, not angels or saints and the people, (mostly men) who carry out the work are builders. The work we do is usually messy and causes disruption to your lives while we are making the improvements we deliver. This is the same with any construction company, but with the changes we make you will live in much greater comfort once the process is complete.

At MakeMyHomeGreen we promise to communicate with you clearly and honestly. We promise to make the journey as good as it can be, but we have to let you know that while the results will give you a much better home, the journey, like all good ones, will most likely have a few bumps in the road to our destination, however if you have been properly prepared, we will all get there happy.

Our Values


Our Values


Did you know....

  • The UK has the oldest, coldest most poorly insulated homes in Europe – we want to change that.
  • The UK has the highest number of excess winter deaths in Europe – that is a tragically under reported figure and few people seem to be aware of it. 
  • Buildings in the UK are responsible for 38% of our CO2 emissions, with domestic homes emitting the majority of this, 28%. 
  • The UK has a legal commitment to cutting CO2 emissions by 80% by 2050 and the UK housing stock presents a significant challenge as we progress towards meeting these goals. 
  • 55% of the housing stock was built before 1960, this is unique in Europe. 21% was built before 1919. This includes our all of our beloved Victorian and Edwardian homes.
  • 75% of existing housing stock will still be here in 2050

So what do we do?

MakeMyHomeGreen wants to tackle the challenges presented by our aging housing stock. We want to preserve them and make them work better, make them fit for 21st Century living. 

We want to work towards better building standards, using better materials and taking a better approach to improving our homes than simply squeezing as much money out of them as possible in the shortest space of time with no regard for quality of life, happiness, well-being and the preservation of our heritage.

We want to make our homes better places to live. This is our mission and these are our values.
