Building Contractors in Reading | Updating Your Home

Without exploring all the options available to them, many homeowners in Reading think moving is their only choice when their home is no longer fulfilling their needs. Adding an extra room, or completing house renovations, can replace the need to move, saving time, money and stress. Our builders have thorough experience in constructing loft conversions and house extensions, providing families with the additional space they need. Offering both internal and external services, we are the only company you need to transform your domestic property.

 

19% of owner-occupied homes don’t meet the Decent Homes Standard. Looking at heating, ventilation and energy use, this sets minimum requirements for thermal comfort and facilities.

 

Our house renovations bring homes in Reading up to standard, significantly improving conditions.

 

To increase space, we construct house extensions and loft conversions. As these do not require planning permission when the job falls inside permitted development, beginning work is typically straightforward. During a free consultation, our building contractors talk you through the construction process. This is also a great time to begin exploring design possibilities.

 

House extensions and house renovations offer a great opportunity to improve kitchen space. Viewed as the heart of modern homes, an updated kitchen has a lasting impact on family life. A further benefit for our Reading customers is the reduced cost of living that comes with new, more efficient appliances. Our team of accredited builders and tradesmen design and install bespoke kitchens to suit every taste.

 

They are equally adept at fitting new bathroom suites. If your house could benefit from an extra bathroom, house extensions can provide this additional space. Bathrooms can also form part of loft conversions, either as a single room or as an ensuite.

CONSIDERATIONS

 

It is important to bear in mind the disruption to daily life that comes with construction work. While we keep this to a minimum, some facilities will occasionally be unavailable, especially during full house renovations. This may affect water, gas, heating and electricity. Our building contractors forewarn of any disruption to your home and restore services as quickly as possible.

 

Children, the elderly, and other people with specific needs, require special consideration. To ensure they remain safe and comfortable during construction, we discuss potential problems with you and your family. Some of our Reading customers choose to stay somewhere else whilst we work on their home. In these instances, we arrange the best way for our builders to gain access to your property.

 

You must also inform neighbours of planned work. As per the Party Wall Act, you need to serve a notice on neighbours if house extensions or loft conversions will affect a party wall or boundary line. This must be at least 2 months before building work begins. Failure to do so delays our building contractors and increases costs.
