For practical guidance on home improvements and much more visit the LABC Front Door website.

The Front Door website is easy to use for consumers and has proved to be a reliable and impartial source of information. It covers a range of common home improvement projects and issues including: loft conversions, chimneys, garage conversions, bathrooms, extensions, insulation, and solar panels. 

There’s useful advice on retrofitting energy efficiency measures too, like wall insulation and replacement windows, and guidance on fitting an electric vehicle charging point, which all makes a difference in terms of addressing the Climate Emergency. 

Another popular feature on the Front Door website is “Ask Anna”.

LABC aim to help most individuals who send us their queries using this feature and are continuing to see an increase in the number of questions being submitted. Frequently asked questions are published on the website to help homeowners on their home improvement journey.
