Getting your home extended can be a big upheaval and a major task. In terms of stress and disruption, it’s second only to moving house. However, as long as an extension is planned carefully and accurately, it can also be a great investment. It will add value to the price of your property, and is usually a vastly cheaper option than moving home to something larger, since a well-planned extension can transform the way you use existing space.
However, as with any construction work, the end result is only ever as good as the building contractor you’ve employed and the materials they use to do the job. For this reason, you need to be sure that the contract is carried out and managed by a reputable and professional organisation, and you need to trust them to keep things on schedule, too.
Taking on the project
There are lots of good reasons to extend a home. You might need a bigger kitchen, a bedroom for a new arrival, or space to accommodate interests and hobbies or even a loft conversion to give you much more space. You may have always fancied an orangery, or a games room, or a playroom for the kids. One classic reason for extension is a home office to accommodate a new business, since remote working is becoming more popular now we’re all online at home.
Get it right and the extension should make your home more attractive and pleasant to live in, giving prospective purchasers more space when it’s time to sell up and move on.
Find the right contractor
As with many home extensions, a majority of work is likely to be electrical; you’ll probably need new lights, sockets and heaters for a start. Not all construction companies are qualified to carry out this type of work. That doesn’t necessarily mean you need to split the work over two companies, though, and there are plenty of reasons to keep everything with the same supplier: coordination, management and control are easier for a start.
When you keep things with one company, you’ll find it much easier to progress the project without having to micro-manage and ensure everyone’s doing their bit. That’s where we can help
