Home remodelling is another name for a house renovation, both of which are a process of improving or updating the layout and/or the interior of the home therefore changing and improving the space in the home you already have. The majority of our potential clients come to us with the idea to extend their home as well as renovate but sometimes the footprint of a house allows for a renovation without the need to add more space by building an additional area.

FAQs about Home Extensions

This depends entirely on the size of the project at the finish you would like to achieve. Off the shelf kitchens and bathrooms for example will be much less cost to supply and fit than a bespoke kitchen designed and hand painted to your exact requirements. Even looking at the small details such as door handles, lighting, tiles, brand of paint etc can all change the price dramatically.

For a full house renovation could take months depending on the extent of the project. We will be able to supply you with a more specific timeframe of works once we have looked at your project.

Kitchens are the best long term investment when adding value to a property. This is why they are mostly prioritised when people decided to upgrade their homes. The value is added immediately to you as it may change the way you use the space, especially with the addition of an extension. Long term if you come to sell your property a more up to date kitchen will make it more desirable.

What to think about when buying a house to renovate

If you want your dream home, more than likely you’re going to have to create it yourself. We’re not suggesting you have to pour money into a self-build project! What we mean is, buying a property that has all the foundations of what you want and then renovating it to make it uniquely yours.


How long does it take to renovate a home?

One of the top questions that we’ve seen people both google and ask us within the first initial enquiry is ‘how long will it take roughly?’ and while we understand the importance of this questions, there are just far too many variables to consider before we could even think about putting a number to that question! 


Would a Fixer Upper Mean Renovating the Entire House?

The notion of buying a fixer upper can actually be compared to Marmite in a way, people either love them or hate them! The prospect of having to work on a house that you’ve just bought can fill some with dread, you wouldn’t buy a car that needs a new interior… well… most people wouldn’t! But there are just as many people out there that look at an old house as a challenge.
