House extensions

House extensions

If you want to create extra space for a growing family or just for your own enjoyment, a house extension is one of the most worthwhile investments. Not only is it far cheaper than relocating for space, but you’ll also make back the money on the sale of your home.

Why extend rather than move?

The cost of moving home is escalating year-in year-out and now it’ll set you back thousands of pounds from stamp duty, solicitor fees and estate agent payments. To counter this, instead of relocating for more space, just add an extension to your home.

There are many ways to add extra space, from extending out the back of your property to converting the loft or basement.

This proves to be a much quicker solution to achieving more space and requires less effort and associated fees.

Add value with a home extension

With the housing market not moving, adding value to your property is crucial. With home extensions you can pump thousands of pounds into the value.

A Nationwide building society survey showed that on average:

  • An extra bedroom raises property value by 6%

  • An extra bathroom raises property value by 5%

  • An en-suite bedroom conversion in the loft raises value by up to 20%.

Whilst extending into your back garden or above the garage would be highly beneficial, it could prove more cost effective to utilise the space in your loft and convert it into another room.


Home extension quotes


No matter where you want to extend or renovate, adding extra space in your home is one of the only ways to add value and have more room. It could be an extension above the garage or a renovation of the loft or basement.

Energy Performance of Houses

The below information indicates the energy performance of properties in Uk. Energy ratings range from A to G, with A being the most energy efficient and G being the least efficient. The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating comes into play heavily when trying to sell your property, as prospective buyers will see just how much they're likely to be paying for their heating expenses. House upgrades such as insulation assist to considerably boost a home's EPC rating.
