What does it take to create a better life experience in a Bloor home?

Research by Showhouse magazine revealed that 71% of people in the UK want to live in a new build home, but new homes aren’t all built equally. Find out what makes a Bloor home different…

The quality

It takes more than just bricks and mortar to make a home: it takes thought, time, and planning to design a layout that works exactly how your family needs it to.

Energy efficiency
New build homes by Bloor are incredibly energy-efficient; in fact, they’re nearly all EPC-rated A-B. And that’s because we’ve built them to keep heat in.

In fact, as standard, all our new homes include thermally insulated cavity walls, loft insulation, insulation-boosting concrete floors that also reduce noise, thermal double glazing (designed to complement your house type), and composite doors made from strong, thermally efficient, low-maintenance hardwood.

What’s more, our homes are fitted with energy-efficient boilers and thermostatically controlled central heating systems that put you in charge of temperature regulation and energy consumption.

Interior design
But excellent energy efficiency isn’t the only head-turning quality of our homes. It’s the style that flows from room to room. Because the finishing touches matter.

That’s why each new home we build is fitted with immaculate, tiled bathrooms and beautiful, contemporary Symphony kitchens.  With the option of integrated appliances, you can save time, money and hassle because everything’s ready to go for you, as soon as you move in.

And, research by the HPB suggests upgrading an older property to a similar standard as our homes costs in excess of £70,000. 

Peace of mind
Buy new, and phew! You’ve saved money on energy bills, and you’ll get a 10-year build guarantee from the NHBC.

Customer care

Happy home-buying experiences are something we excel at. That’s why our homeowners rate us as Excellent on Trustpilot.  Of course, knowing our homes are reassuringly good quality makes it easier, but we go out of our way to match our customers’ needs and budgets to homes they’ll love; and we see it as a privilege. So whether you chat with a sales advisor or a site manager, they’ll all give you the same, exemplary customer service we’re known for.

We’ll guide you through the buying process from start to finish, too - whatever stage you’re at on the property ladder. So whether you’re a first-time buyer or if you’re upsizing or downsizing we have a range of way to help you move.

But that’s not all. To secure your home, we can put you in touch with Independent Financial Advisors and solicitors to help cut your costs and make your house purchase easier.


Our relationship doesn’t end when you’re handed the keys. In fact, we’ll stay in touch long after you’ve moved in. So, not only will we carry out several house inspections before you move in.  And we’ll come back once you’ve moved in to look at any snags and encourage you to get in touch if you need any help.

Good neighbours

One of the wonderful things about moving to a new Bloor development is that everyone is in the same boat: you’re all moving to a brand new home, which means you’ll all be part of an exciting new community.

Some homeowners even make friends and meet each other on social media before they’ve moved in! So check whether your development has its own community Facebook page, search on Instagram for interior ideas specific to your house type using the hashtags #BloorHomes and your home type e.g. #BloorSkelton. You could even start your own home account on social media to document your journey; tag us and we might feature you on our social media channels, too.
