If you are deciding to have a home extension, there are a lot of good reasons to do so. Primarily, extending your property gives you extra space for you and your family. This is especially appealing to growing families where an extra bedroom and/or a more spacious kitchen may make a huge the difference.
An extension will give you the opportunity to modify your home. More space will provide you with the freedom to change the layout and create different spacious living areas. For example, open plan living areas: combine the living room and kitchen area, these are becoming very popular and can revamp your home for the better.
Finally, a house extension adds value to your property. If built to a high standard, it will increase the value of your home, giving you peace of mind should you wish to sell your property in the future.
What do You Need to Consider Before Extending?
The trick is to extend and to come out well in the investment stakes, which means you have to put a lot of thought into even the smallest extension. For example, if you merely wish to extend the kitchen at the rear of your 1930s semi, should it be single storey or double? If it is the latter, what will go above it?
There are also practical issues to consider that are not directly concerned with the construction process. Access is a good example. If you add to your accommodation, will it mean more cars will need to be parked on the drive? If you have no drive then the lack of off-street parking might be a reason for the refusal of planning permission.
Similarly, if your house is a terrace do you have rear access for the unloading of building materials or if not, will you have to bring everything from beams to blocks, and girders to guttering through the house?
