There are many advantages to be had from choosing to extend your current property rather than selling up and moving onto a new place - to start with, an extension will add considerable value onto your property, so if you decide to sell up in the future you could see an excellent return on your initial investment. Here are some useful tips you may wish to consider if you are thinking about adding an extension onto your building.

- Make sure you're working with experienced builders you can rely on. An extension is a major investment and the building process can cause a lot of upheaval if not done correctly, so you need to ensure the work will be carried out to the highest standard of quality, while always sticking to budget and time constraints. When you are working with us you can rest assured we always have these practical details in mind and will provide a truly professional service.

- Check the deeds to your property to ensure that you are allowed to add an extension, otherwise you could run into problems further down the line.

- Think about how much space you want to achieve in your new extension. A two-storey extension will of course provide more space than a single-storey one if you want to really maximise the amount of new living space you can create.

- The visual style of your extension is extremely important. You want to build something that you love, but you also want to ensure that it blends well with your existing property. You may wish to match the building and roofing materials with your home if you want to create the effect of the extension seamlessly blending in with the rest of the property.
