S&D provide a full home extension building service throughout Glasgow.
S&D offer a variety of adjustable extensions to your property. They can be designed one or two storeys high and positioned to the rear or side of the building. Traditionally adding an extension to your home allowed more space for a growing family, now homeowners are choosing this option to add value to their homes.
Even though banks and lenders are once again attempting to entice people to borrow, with people’s finances and job still not as secure as they would like, many people are not choosing to move to acquire more space for their growing families but extend their properties instead.
There are many home extension options for your Glasgow property but, if you are looking to add space AND value then you will need to consider home extension options thoroughly before any work begins.
Home extensions options depend on two things – the space you have to work with and the budget you have to complete the work...
Terraced properties are favoured first time buys, as well as retirement options for those wanting to live mortgage free but they can be tight on space. Rather than looking to add a bedroom, some terraced properties benefit from increasing the amount of living space. Extending the lounge as well as the kitchen to add a much needed dining area can add significant value to the property.
Larger terraced properties benefit from a loft conversion as this can add a much needed extra bedroom. Advances in plumbing technology also now mean that frequently, an en suite bathroom can be added. But, as with all Glasgow home extensions, getting the work completed properly so that the project complies with building and fire regulations, as well as planning permission is essential – failure to do so renders the £20,000 or so you have spent an over-investment if the bedroom can only be called a ‘hobby’ room on your house selling particulars.
Adding a storey on to the garage are home extensions options that many Glasgow homeowners do not always realise will be a more cost-effective way of adding space and value. You will need the services of a surveyor or engineer to check that the foundations of the garage will take the additional load of another storey but on most cases, this is not a problem – builders suggest that even remedial work on foundations is cheaper than laying a whole new set for a new single storey layer.
Of course, home extensions at your Glasgow property need not be a huge or expensive undertaking. Garages are often under-utilised spaces that are either attached or close to the home. If you are looking for a versatile extra room, then converting your garage to a living space, rather than a glorified dumping ground, could be a sound investment.
With all the talk of ‘adding value’ and creating a home that will sell, we sometimes forget that we and our families could be living in the property for some time yet! Consider what it is that you need within your Glasgow home and do not be too swayed by ‘adding an extra bathroom will increase value by x amount’. If you need a fourth bedroom then look at the option or, if it is more ground floor space, then look at the space you have available and how this can be adapted, improved and extended to meet your needs.
