Extensions

Are you thinking of extending your property? An extension is often the most cost effective way of increasing the floor space of your property when weighed up against moving to a larger home. An extra bedroom, a bigger kitchen, a sun room or conservatory? There are many reason why families want to increase the size of their home and we can help you achieve your goals.

We can assist from the design stage to completion. A network of trusted and bona-fide sub-contractors allow us to handle the whole project from start to finish.

If you already have drawings, we can supply you with a competitive quote for the project.

Loft Conversions and Dormers

If you are in need of extra space in the home, perhaps the loft is the place to look first. A loft conversion is often a cheaper alternative to building an extension, and can give more space. If you live in a traditional built house with solid rafters then a loft conversion is a viable way to increase your living space. The Velux range of roof windows will add all the light you need to turn that dead space in your attic into the 'Top' room of the house.  Dormer windows will help gain valuable floor space and improve headroom. Our workshop can manufacture a bespoke staircase to give access to your new space.

Plans will need to be drawn up and a building warrant obtained before work can start. We can advise on this process and recommend architects and structural engineers.
