Have You Thought About Extending the Home?

28 October 2010 616 views No Comment

If you have quite a large garden and you are looking to upgrade the home then why not consider an extension? If you can afford to add an extension onto your home then it can provide you with a number of benefits. Not only will it give you more space, but it will also add value to the property. Before you decide whether or not an extension is for you, there are several factors that you need to think about.

Things to Consider

The first thing that you need to know is whether you will need planning permission. Inquire to local authorities and see exactly what you need to do if you are planning on getting an extension.

You will also need to think about your budget. Extensions are not typically cheap. They will cost thousands of dollars and not many people have that kind of money lying around. Of course you could choose to get a loan to fun the extension. It could be worth it in the long run as it will add value to the property.

You can extend the property in a number of ways. Firstly you can make use of the space that is already available. Perhaps you haven’t opened up a cellar? Or maybe you have a loft that you could turn into another room? This will make use of the space that you already have in the property. The other option is to extend the property out into the garden space. This will typically cost you more than making use of the cellar or the loft.

It is important to get as many quotes as possible. That way you will get a good idea of which ones offer the best prices. Don’t compromise quality for cost however. If you pay a dodgy, cheap builder to do the extension for you then all kinds of problems could crop up in the future. They will not necessarily do the best job and you could end up spending thousands of dollars on repair work later on.

An extension can be a great idea as long as you think it through properly. Why not shop around for free quotes today to get a rough idea of how much it would cost you to extend your property?
