Adding value to your home:

 Thinking of making changes to your home, usually not only adds space but value to.

  • There are different ways we can help in adding value to your home:
    • Adding space to your home is usually the easiest route.
    • Adding value with a rear kitchen extension, both adds space & upgrades your kitchen. 
    • Adding value with a two storey rear extension often is the addition of a bedroom or master-bedroom enlargement gaining en-suite & sometimes walk in wardrobes.
    • Side extension can also often offer additional valuable space.
    • Extensions are the easiest ways to add additional value to your home, as the increase in value is easily measured.
  • Conversions:
    • Converting an attic: is a way of adding an additional room, the value of an attic is not usually included in the value of the property until it converted into a usable room beyond keeping the Christmas things. Often attics can be converted into one or two bedrooms often with a bathroom. This space is now much more valuable.
    • Converting your Garage: for this purpose we are considering garages that are attached to your property & were  built as part of your property. These garages
