Are you feeling confused? Do you have multiple quotes but still unsure which is your best option? If you are struggling to move forward and the whole process is starting to feel daunting, we encourage you to take a few minutes to read on:
Our top 3 tips for ensuring a stress-free process.
- In finding the best company for you, the question to ask yourself (besides which quote best suits your budget) is with “which builder did you have the best connection?” Who stood out, who understood the details you provided and produced your ideas in a clear professional quote that met your expectations and ideas?
- It is understandable if you are having doubts, major changes to your property can be an expensive outlay. Remember more space is not the only benefit of a lovely extension or loft conversion. Improving your home is one of the safest, most reasonable investment you can obtain. “Nationwide research on the valueof improvements to an average three-bedroom house found that an extension creating a double bedroom and en-suite can add up to 23% to the value of your property. An extra bathroom could add up to 6% and an additional double bedroom can add 12%.”
- We highly recommend to avoid disappointment, you book your dates as soon as possible with your preferred builder, even if this is a way in the future. Bear in mind an agreed permitted development application is valid for 1 year, whereas building regulation agreements last for a period of 3 years. By booking now, you can take advantage of locking in a good price and could benefit if general building costs rise.
