Home Extensions

Extending your home is the perfect way to maximise the potential of your property and give you the extra space without the cost and stress associated with moving house.

Whether you already have architects plans completed or would prefer to use our own expert building team to draw these up for you, we will understand your very specific requirements and will always work with the existing fabric of the property, creating a tailor made solution for the additional living space you need.

We make every step of the process as stress-free as possible from partitioning off the construction works should you choose to stay at home whilst the extension is being constructed, to providing samples of finished materials for you to select from.

We understand that not all extensions are straight-forward and the different types of ground make up across Godalming and Surrey give rise to different construction methods but our many years of experience assure you of every attention to detail to provide longevity for your investment.

Kitchen Design & Build

The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home and designing a space that works for you is more than just physical cabinets and appliances.

Planning a new kitchen is always extremely exciting but we never forget that you may be living in the property and will ensure we plan the removal of cabinets and appliances with you and will set up a temporary kitchen to enable a stress free transition from old kitchen to new.

We have worked with most of the larger kitchen companies in and around Surrey and Hampshire and are always happy to work alongside them for scheduling or providing practical help for drainage, heating or working around structural steels.

Alternatively, our team of highly skilled carpenters can fit your kitchen for you, always achieving the best quality finish. Depending on the supplier, we can also order and manage the whole process for you including any necessary returns, changes or additional parts alongside the scheduling of worktop templating and installation, plumbing and electrics.

Bathrooms

Whilst the bathroom is a functional space, it still needs careful consideration to provide the practicalities, storage and finish you have in mind. Intricate detail such as low level lighting, storage recesses, concealed cisterns and tiling all need consideration at the early stages so that they can be incorporated during construction.

We will always guide you through the process, manage the technicalities and can put you in touch with the right supplier for your budget.

Basements & Tanking

Excavating for a basement or extending an existing small basement area can be a complex building project and requires specialist structural works, waterproofing and tanking in order to meet habitable living standards.

Consideration needs to be given to the impact on neighbouring properties, ground make up, building control requirements and risk assessments and compliance with health and safety requirements.

For the majority of the building project we limit access via the main part of the house to reduce disturbance for yourselves and your neighbours.

Our 30 years’ experience in building across Surrey and Hampshire has provided us with the expertise and best practise, modern building methods to achieve a conversion that you can be proud of whether it’s a cinema room, gaming room or garden room leading out onto a rear garden connection.

Structural Building Work

Working alongside surveyors and structural engineers we have a wealth of experience to provide specialist structural building services to alter internal layouts or structurally repair the fabric of all kinds of buildings, including heritage.
