Choosing the right home builders

Renovation builders have an eye for detail and are only satisfied when you the customer is satisfied, they want every little detail is finished to perfection.

Home builders work with some of the finest tradesmen around, ranging from fully qualified plumbers to certified electricians.

They can help homeowners to obtain building permits, thus ensuring all the work is up to and above standard building codes.

If you’re unsure if you should perform your own home renovation, or if you should call in a professional, we can tell you that any type of home renovation or building project should always be left to the experts.

This is due to the fact that not only electricity could be involved but also plumbing. As everyone knows these two combinations can be deadly if they are not handled with care.

 

However, there is some job that homeowners can do by themselves, such as changing the washer on a leaky tap or upgrading the hardware on your kitchen cabinets.

But full remodel should never be attempted. So if you are contemplating a remodelling, then you should definitely think about talking to renovation builders.

Extensions

Most commonly referred to as an “extension” the side or rear extension is probably what you will be looking for, you will need a builder and usually an architect to draw up some plans for your builder to work from and to give you an idea of how the finished extension will be.

As you may need planning permission for your side or rear extension, you may want to call in an architect early on, he can advise you and help you decide on how best to approach the extension and reduce disruption to your day to day living while the project is in progress.

Orangery extensions

These are quite rare, but growing in popularity, better suited for those wishing to extend a kitchen area or add a little extra living space to the rear of the property. Orangeries look stunning and are a combination of a traditional extension and a conservatory and a perfect choice for a single-storey rear extension.

Conservatories 

These are the most common types of extension and of course, the most affordable, with conservatories starting at just £4,000, however, they offer very little extra living space and are usually more utilised in the summer months.

Conservatories can be designed as large as you need and require much less building work so if you are considering a conservatory for your home you should definitely look into getting quotes.
