Cardiff Home Extensions
Extending your home in Cardiff is one of the best solutions that many of our clients have turned to because it’s often much cheaper than buying a new house and moving.
We have noticed an increase in home extensions being created in the Cardiff area which is due to the rising costs in owning a house.
When it comes to an extension there are many options you can go with. You can go with a traditional extension to modern and everything else in-between. House extensions are a blank slate and there are only a few limitations which include:
Types of house extensions
Take a look at the more common types of house extensions.
Single story house extensions in Cardiff
A single story house extension is a room extension with a vaulted ceiling and it uses the existing pitched roof.
Multi-story home extension
A multi-story home extension consists of two or more floors and can be built onto any part of the existing building.
Wrap around home extension
A wrap around home extension consists of an extension where the side of the house meets the rear. They then combine to make a larger space.
An orangery is a solid structure with a roof, wall and double glazing and is usually added to the back or side of a house.
Why have a house extension?
There are many benefits of adding a house extension to your Cardiff home, and we have listed some of them below.
Save money vs moving to a new house
Extensions will save you from losing money as you don’t have to pay a big deposit on a new home, you don’t have to pay solicitors fees, you don’t have to pay agency fees and you don’t have to pay to move all of your personal belongings.
With all of the money saved on the fees above you will often find you have money left over to decorate the new space you have created.
Increased home value
Not only do you get more space so you don’t end up losing it with the kids or your partner because you are tripping over their feet, but you also add value to your home. An average property in Wales can add up to £59,000 in property value per 25 square metres added in an extension.
Adding a house extension also makes your home more desirable if you ever decide to sell it.
You can make it your own
More often than not when we move into a new home we are limited in the changes we can make to it structurally. However, with a new house extension, you have free range (within reason) to create the space you have always dreamed of.
If you choose to work with a reputable builder in Cardiff they will also be able to recommend home extension solutions that you may not have thought about which could improve your home and add even more value.
