Home Extensions London
One consequence of recent economic uncertainty is that increasing numbers of homeowners are adopting the ‘don’t move, improve’ mind set , opting to make the best use of their existing home through additional building works rather than attempting to sell and buy a property in a challenging and slow-moving market.
Our own experience at Thomas Design and Building is that more than 40% of our new and existing clients are choosing to invest in extending their current home as an alternative to moving. The benefits of a house extension are obvious; whether you’re in need of a new and larger kitchen, an additional bedroom to accommodate a growing family, a second bathroom or another reception room, adding an extension not only provides increased living space but can also add significant value to your home in the event that you choose to move.
In order to obtain the greatest benefit from a home extension, attention to detail is a must. Any extension should maintain the original character and style of your home; planning permission must be sought and agreed; appropriate structural engineering works must be undertaken and, ideally the whole process should be properly documented and project managed from start to finish.
This is an area in which Thomas Design and Building excels. As qualified, experienced and expert architects and builders we can help with every aspect of creating your dream home extension from initial consultation to final inspection and sign off. We have a reputation for excellence of which we’re proud and have undertaken building projects on every kind of home ranging from Grade I listed historic buildings to ultra-modern contemporary houses.
Whether the architecture of your house is classical or modern, Thomas Design and Building will plan, engineer and construct a home extension that complements the existing structure perfectly. Working efficiently and to the highest standards of quality and safety we will keep you informed of our progress on your home extension at every step of the project. Once completed, we will provide you the Building Regulations Compliance Certificates for your new home extension; your guarantee that the work we’ve undertaken conforms to Government legislation regarding build quality and safety.
We are even happy to advise you with regard to decorating, furnishing and choosing accessories and appliances for your new home extension.
