Why get a home improvement loan from us?
Know your personal rate before you apply for a Barclayloan
Whether you want to undertake a big build or make a small change to your home, knowing how much you have to spend can really help your project.
And unlike some other lenders, in many cases we can give you a personalised price quote up front – with no impact on your credit score. To find your loan rate, simply log in to Online Banking or Barclays Mobile Banking, if you’re registered1.
You could get your money straightaway
It’s quick and easy to apply for a home improvement loan, and, if your loan application is approved and you’ve signed your loan agreement online, the money is usually transferred to your current account within minutes2.
If you take out a Barclayloan and another lender offers you a like-for-like unsecured loan with a lower APR, you can claim under our guarantee – within 30 days of the date we signed your Barclayloan agreement.
We’ll reduce the interest rate to produce an APR equal to the competing offer and recalculate your monthly repayments to reflect the reduced interest rate. Please see our full price guarantee terms and conditions.
Fixed monthly repayment
This could help you budget.

Also, with a fixed monthly repayment amount, you can manage your finances effectively.
Already have a Barclayloan and need more funds? You can apply to increase your borrowing with us.
If you just want to take out a second loan instead of topping up, that could be an option too.
Repaying your loan early
You have the right to repay your loan early, in part or full, at any time. We’ll charge a fee equal to 30 days’ interest on the amount you’re repaying, as well as any other interest that’s due.

Making your house a home
If you’ve just purchased your first property, or simply want to make the most of the space you have, here are some tips for you.
Adding value to your property
It’s no secret that home improvements can (but not always) add value to your property. If you’re selling, surveys have shown that homebuyers typically like to see:
- A new kitchen and bathroom
- A parking space or a garage
- Fuel-efficient features, like double glazing, insulation and new boilers
Why not see if you’re eligible for a grant from the government4 to improve the energy efficiency of your home?
Extra space is always popular with buyers, so home extensions, loft conversions and conservatories are popular improvements to make. But don’t assume your outlay will automatically translate into an increase in the value of your home when you sell. And make sure you go for quality, because home improvements done badly can devalue your property.
If you’re not sure about what planning permissions you need, and what building regulations apply, check the government’s planning portal4. It breaks down improvements by each area and feature of your home.
Home improvements can help cut your energy bills
