If you're fast outgrowing your current home but can't afford the expense of moving to a new property, then an extension could provide the space solution you're after. Many homeowners consider extending their property as their family grows whether this is to achieve a further bedroom or a bigger kitchen to accommodate everybody.
If you have significant outside space, then the possibilities of extending are endless and could even include a second storey. In the current economic climate, many people opt for an extension as a quick-fix solution to space shortages because it doesn't involve putting their own home on the market and attracting a buyer. One of the big plus points of investing in an extension is that it is highly likely to add value to your property when you do eventually decide to sell and will be more affordable than upsizing to a bigger home and incurring stamp duty charges as well as a bigger mortgage outlay every month.
Extending your home is a big decision and shouldn't be taken lightly. Unless you've considerable building experience or work in the construction industry, it's always wise to call in the professionals to ensure the job is completed properly. Appointing a trusted building company will take the headache of planning regulations away, freeing up precious time which can be spent with the family.
Brentwood construction firm Barnes Webster & Sons covers all aspects of building work including domestic and commercial, from new-build and refurbishment to design and maintenance repair. As highly-experienced construction experts, Barnes Webster & Sons can advise homeowners of the most suitable extension for their property to maximise the potential value and ensure the architectural style is in keeping with the remainder of the property.
What is the best use for an extension?
Extended kitchens usually add the most financial value to properties as large kitchens sell homes. A kitchen extension can also provide the opportunity to extend upwards during the same project to maximise the additional space. If you've got limited or no space for a traditional extension, then a loft conversion could be another way of achieving a master bedroom with en-suite, second lounge or playroom. Victorian properties and houses built within the 1930s are particularly suitable for a loft conversion of the high-pitched roof.
