Extending your home is a very cost-effective way of getting more living space without all the trauma of selling up (viewings, failed viewings, estate agents costs and long chains). The other great benefit of home extensions are that they are a great way to increase the market value of your house. Most building society surveys, like the Nationwide, show that a well-executed and compliant house extension can add around 12% to the base value of your property.
By “well executed and compliant” we mean that the building work has been done by a professional builder, that the work is all covered by the current planning laws and that the work meets all the current standards specified in the current Building Regulations.
