Why Get an Extension on Your Home?

Why Get an Extension on Your Home?

Building an extension to your existing property is a great way to increase the value of your home and create more space in the process. You need to plan it properly though.

Fortunately we’ve been building extensions throughout Gloucestershire since 2001 so we’ve learnt a trick or two.

Firstly think about the areas of your home which are full to bursting and what special requirements you have for the new extension.  This could include extra storage, bedrooms, gym, home cinema, utility room, games room, living space or office/study.

The size of the plot available is also crucial. Is your home in a terrace, semi-detached or detached in 4 acres of your own ground?  Whichever it is will have limiting effects on the size of the extension you can create.

We offer a full service from consulting with you, drawing up plans and walking you through each stage of the construction process to ensure you are completely happy with your luxury extension.

Alternatively if you have your own plans already drawn up we can work with those.

Easier than moving

Having an extension built upon your home is much easier than moving house entirely. With the helping hand of a group of professionals, you can make the process exceedingly easy. Moving home involves a lot more financial risk and hassle than simply building an extension.

Added living space

Additional living space is typically the riving force for homeowners to properly invest in an extension. A home extension is by far one of the best ways to achieve your ultimate vision, by giving you that very much required additional space! This is also a fantastic solution for those who have a growing family that need extra room.

Property value

Adding a home extension can add a substantial amount of value to your home, depending on what you choose to do with the additional space. For instance, adding a new bedroom into your extension will add as much as 20% of value onto the property, while adding a new bathroom could increase the value by as much as 5%. This makes extensions a worthwhile investment if you are looking for long-term return on your investment.


When you are purchasing a new home, it is rare that you will find one that is perfect for every requirement and need you have. When adding an extension, you can really benefit from creating the kind of bespoke space that has been created with you in mind. Bespoke design means you can create additional space that is tailored to your specific needs. Everything from the bricks to the windows can actually be customised to suit your taste, creating an eclectic, traditional or modern aesthetic.
