Here at H & R Building Ltd, our personnel deliver a complete start-to-finish service for house extensions in the Kent area. Located in Sittingbourne, our locally trusted builders travel throughout the region, from Gillingham to Rochester, and from Maidstone to Sheerness. In both the short- and long-term, house extensions provide homeowners with numerous benefits. In the short-term, these include avoiding the various costs and stresses of moving house, staying in your preferred neighbourhood and solving issues relating to a lack of space. In regard to the long-term, an extension carried out by time-served building contractors not only appeals to prospective buyers, it also increases resale value.
No matter what inspiration lies behind your own house extension, H & R Building has more than 20 years of experience in managing projects to completion on time, within budget and in strict compliance with current UK Building Regulations. As genuinely local building contractors who offer a personal service, we strive to make the process as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.
House extensions create additional living space by utilising vacant land surrounding the existing property. Naturally, this results in a smaller garden, but the interior benefits more than outweigh any external losses. Whether you want a larger kitchen, a home office or a new double bedroom with en suite facilities, our builders work to any specification, turning initial concepts and ideas into results that exceed expectations.
To schedule an initial consultation regarding your own extension project, please contact us. Our building contractors happily travel to locations in Sittingbourne, Maidstone, Rochester and the neighbouring Kent areas.
At H & R Building, we recognise that house extensions represent daunting projects. Due to the size of the investment and the period of on-site construction, it’s understandable that homeowners have an array of questions for their builders of choice. One of the most common concerns we address in the preliminary stages of extension projects is the subject of project management. Naturally, our customers want reassurance that every aspect of work meets the very highest of standards.
Our on-site staff have significant experience working on house extensions, and we utilise tradespeople who share our own impressive work ethic as well as standards for customer service and workmanship. You can rest assured that any individual working on your extension holds the necessary training and qualifications for the task at hand, including Gas Safe registration and Part P certification.
