Having a home extension built is an exciting prospect. Not only does it create more space to accommodate your needs but it can also add value to your property.Source
What are builder extensions?
It is important that you choose the right contractors for your home extension build. A good design professional or builder should have a wealth of experience in transforming your vision into a reality. They should be able to advise you on what is possible within the constraints of your plot and what the best solution might be. They should be able to help you find ways to make the most of your available budget and they should be able to assist with planning permission and building regulations applications, sourcing contractors and project managing, if this is a service that you require.
You should also look for a contractor that is registered with the Federation of Master Builders (FMB). This is a trade body that ensures its members have passed a rigorous vetting and independent inspection. This means you can be confident that they will work to the highest standards and their workmanship is covered by a warranty.
One of the biggest benefits of a home extension is that it allows you to stay in your current neighbourhood, so your children can stay with their friends and continue attending the same school. Moving to a new house can be an expensive and stressful venture and a home extension is often a more cost-effective and efficient solution.
