Thinking of extending your home? Things to consider…

Adding an extension to your property can make a massive difference to your home.  Not only does it give you extra space, or provide you with the additional bedroom or bathroom accommodation you need for a growing family, it can also increase the value of your home.

So, what do you need to consider before extending?  As with any major project, there are a number of factors that need to be carefully considered before any work on an extension an be undertaken:

  • What is your budget? 
  • What do you want to achieve with your extension?
  • Do you need planning permission?
  • Do you need an architect?
  • What type of extension?
  • Will your proposal affect the neighbouring properties?
  • Timetable: how long will it take?
  • Know any good builders?
