POPULAR FAQ’S RELATING TO EXTENDING YOUR HOME

How much value will an extension add to my property?

On average, a decent house extension will add between 10% to 20% to the value of you property.

How much does an extension cost?

There are so many variables that effect the cost of an extension that it is impossible to give an accurate indication of costs without specific details. For example, an extension in a London suburb is likely to cost far more than the same extension in Wales or Yorkshire where labour and materials will be substantially cheaper.

How do I get quotes for an extension?

Just click on the blue Get Quote icon that is on almost all of our pages and complete the enquiry form that comes up. Once you submit an enquiry we forward your details to no more than 3 local companies that will be more than happy to provide you with a free quote.

Do I need architect plans for my extension?

All house extensions require plans. You may not need plans for a planning application but you will need building plans, otherwise known as technical drawings, to give to building control when you start the build.

Should I call the architect or the builder first?

In an ideal world the best bet would be to talk to the architect first but if you haven’t got an architect just yet don’t worry as we will be happy to put you in touch with local architects as well as builders when you submit an enquiry for extension quotes.

Which type of house extension is best?

This is a loaded question as it’s is all a matter of perspective. If you need bedrooms then consider a loft conversion, an over garage extension or a 2 storey extension. if you  need a bigger kitchen or more living space then it makes sense to  aim for a rear or side extension.

All house extension should be based on needs rather any anything else.

Which is better a modern extension or a traditional brick built extension?

We get more enquiries from homeowners looking for quotes for a modern extension with lots of folding doors and glass than any other type of house extension. That would imply that modern extensions are currently far more popular.

Should I build with brick or block?

It depends. There are some circumstances where brick will look better and others where the reverse is true. Our view is that you should build with block and render unless brick is really important to the design.

What’s the difference between an orangery and an extension?

Orangeries have particular style features such as a roof lantern and a higher degree of ornamental moulding than a traditional extension. Other than that, very little.

Are conservatories worth the money?

A modern conservatory is most certainly worth the money and makes an ideal extension depending on what you wish to use it for.

What is a Hybrid Extension?

A hybrid extension is one where the design and styling is mixed and takes on characteristics from other types of extensions to the point where you can’t really work out if it is an extension, an orangery or a conservatory.

They have become really popular in recent years and are exceptionally good value for money.
