Outgrowing your home? Think Extension!

Don’t move, extend your home instead, it’s cheaper and easier than you think.

If you’re thinking of moving because your home is getting too small, then stop and think for a moment. Moving is expensive, stressful and disruptive to your life. Why not extend your home instead?

Home extensions are becoming increasingly popular as people realise that they can get more space without having to move. And with the average house price in Colchester now over £300,000, it’s no wonder that people are choosing to stay put and extend their homes.

Our builders are experienced in carrying out all types of home extension work, from single-storey extensions to multi-storey additions. So whatever type of extension you’re thinking of, we can help make your dream home a reality.

Whether you are looking for a larger kitchen or an additional bedroom, an extension can provide you with the extra space you need. And because home extensions are usually cheaper than moving house, they represent a great value-for-money option.

The most common extension right now is the single-storey extension, which can be used to create extra living space, a larger kitchen or an additional bedroom.

First steps;

If you’re thinking about extending your home, the first step is to contact a reputable builder like us to get some expert advice. We will be able to tell you what type of extension would be suitable for your home and give you a rough idea of costs.

Once you have decided to go ahead with an extension, we will work with you to create a detailed design and plan. This will need to be approved by your local authority before work can begin.

Ensure your plans are properly draw

You might think you know something about extension planning – fail to plan – plan to fail but the chances are you haven’t got a clue. If you don’t get your extension drawings right, you’ll end up with an unusable space that cost you a fortune to build. So it’s worth getting some professional help to make sure your plans are watertight.

Building work;

Once all the necessary approvals are in place, our team of experienced builders will get to work on creating your new home extension. We pride ourselves on our high standards of workmanship and customer service, so you can rest assured that your home is in safe hands.

The whole process usually takes around 8-12 weeks from start to finish, depending on the size and scope of the extension. And once it’s complete, you’ll have the extra space you need to enjoy your home to the full.

Consider how much value you could add to the property

An additional reason to extend is the possibility to add value to your home. A well-designed extension can add a significant amount to the value of your property, making it a wise investment for the future.

Because we’re based in Colchester, we know all the local planning regulations inside out, so we can make sure your home extension meets all the necessary requirements.
