I am toying with the idea of restoring a couple of old fireplaces in
the period property that I own with a view to improving the resale
value of the property and am wondering whether anyone has performed a
cost benefit analysis of such a project. The reason for asking is that
the agents I have has round are not convinced that the work I put in
will translate into profit as obviously the cost of DIY restoration
will be high. Currently the fireplaces are boarded up and plastered
over and I only really want to perform the work if it will be worth my
Any thoughts/opinions about this would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
