Home Extensions Architect

Are you looking for a property extensions architect in Rugeley, Staffordshire and the midlands? Your new extension could be used as a study, games room, home gym, or even a bedroom to accommodate a new arrival in the family.

Property Extensions Designed and Built-in Staffordshire

One of the most frequent concerns among homeowners is a lack of space. If you feel your home could benefit from a little extra room, you may consider moving to a larger property.

However, if this is not feasible or within your budget, a property extension could provide the ideal solution to the space deficit! What's more, an extension can also boost the kerb appeal of your home.

If you decide to put the property on the market at any point in the future, you can expect to command a higher asking price.

How Much Value will an Extension Add to my Property?

If you are looking at an extension for your property, this might add value to it. The value that an extension will add to your property is dependant on many factors. 

Two of these factors are how much space are you gaining from this extension. The other aspect is how much will be left of the garden after the extension is completed.  

 To get a good idea of what the value of your home could look like in your area after an extension is added, some good websites will check your area and use that as a base for how much value it will add to your home if any.

How Long Does an Extension Take?

Deciding on how long an extension will take can depend on the size and complexity of the projects. For example, a single-storey rear extension can usually take about three months to complete. 

If it is a double-story extension, these projects can take up to six months to complete. But these will depend on other circumstances and outside influences.

When you request a quote for your extension, the property extension specialist that you hired will be able to provide an estimate for how long the extension will take to complete.

How can I Pay for a Home Extension?

In many circumstances, the people looking for extensions for their homes use their savings to help pay them. If there is a small amount of money you cannot pay for, you can use a credit card or take out some loans to pay for the improvements to your home.  

 Another option that some might have to consider is re-mortgaging your home. This will reduce the share in your property to pay for the extension until you pay it off. 

This option can also help free up some funds to help pay for the extension and other things if needed.  To find the right advice that fits your circumstances, you should find independent financial advice so you choose the right path for your future.

What is the Process to Hire An Architect?

Before anything else, you need to sign a contract with an architect before you begin the work. The contract will usually have it stated on the paper what the work details are and their services. Most architects use the layout of a document that a contract administration has already approved.   

The document would usually say the MCIAT members, the schedule for the renovation project, the completion date, and the amount the architectural designer will be paid.  

 However, before any of this, you should ask yourself what the budget for this extension will be and the project. All registered designers and architects are required to have professional indemnity insurance. This means that if any errors occur on the construction, you are protected by the company.
