Although the cost of building an extension can be significant, it is a sure-fire way to add momentous value to your home and will serve those looking to move away in a few years time just as well as those who are setting up for the long haul.
Hardy of Wessex in Poole feel that with any major project, there are a lot of factors that need to be carefully considered before any work on an extension can be undertaken. From initial designs to planning applications, supplies to labour costs, each stage of the process has the potential to cause major disruptions to the project if it is not thought through beforehand.
