Love your house but need more space? Need a garage or extra rooms but don’t want to have to move? Especially since the downturn in the current property market, more and more people are turning to altering their house to meet their needs rather than buying a new home.
While this can often turn out to be the most cost-effective solution to the problem, making structural changes to your home can also have an extremely positive effect on its re-sale value if you do decide to move in the future. Turning your house from a three bedroom dwelling to having four bedrooms, for example, or adding a studio space can obviously have a huge impact on the sale price of your home.
On the other hand, nothing will devalue your property more than shoddy workmanship or the use of poor building materials. We’ve all seen badly built extensions, garages, conservatories or loft conversions. It goes without saying that you need a building team you can trust to provide a stress-free service and deliver exceptionally high quality work that you will be proud to show off to your friends and family.
Some of the most common structural changes people make to their houses today is to build an extension (either single or double-storey) or to utilise the loft space or even basement to gain an extra room. Perhaps you need an extra bedroom for your children, have taken up a hobby, or have just decided to build a home theatre. It is unusual to find the perfect house that has enough space that suits a family’s requirements. Using the space that already exists in your house is a clever way to fulfil your changing needs.
These type of structural alterations can be large and complex projects, often requiring exceptional planning, execution and project management knowledge. When you use the Hyde Building construction team you can rest easy knowing that your project is in safe and experienced hands.
