New builds seem to be growing smaller all the time, so it shouldn’t really be a surprise that some homeowners in the Cottingham area feel they are running out of space not long after buying. To stay near family and friends, good transport links and better schools, we see more and more people going to building contractors for house extensions. We love extending, but we also think that those adding to their floorspace should at least consider garden rooms.
Garden rooms are outdoor builds, usually made with pressure-treated timber and flat roofs. We find that rubber roofs are the best choice for house extensions and garden buildings because of their exceptional lifespan.
If you find that your Cottingham home feels more cramped now than it did in the past, contact the building contractors at Re-vamp Builders Limited.
We will help you to make the perfect decision for your residential property.
Think about the reasons why you need extra space. Do you need more room for everyday living, have design ideas for a home office or want to build a home gym? House extensions, which we can build with pitched or flat roofs, make a better choice for interior living space. Garden rooms offer a retreat away from the home's main hub and tend to be a little quieter.
Built with flat rubber roofs, garden rooms allow you to step away from a busy family life and give you an outdoor space in which to work – or work out!
Choose our building contractors for house extensions in Cottingham, and if the addition exceeds certain height or boundary parameters, you may need to apply for planning permission. This can slow down the overall time for construction. Garden rooms will usually fall inside permitted development because manufacturers know it pays to stay inside specific dimensions.
If planning approval sounds like a potential headache, choosing a garden building ahead of an extension might be the better choice.
Because house extensions require more extensive construction and a wider skill set, you will need:
This adds to labour costs. New extensions in the Cottingham area cost three to four times more than garden rooms, but they make properties more desirable to buyers and add to overall resale values,
Garden rooms, either with felt flat roofs or rubber roofs, won’t add as much value, but they will cost less to construct overall. This makes them more suited to property owners who need to work to a tighter budget.
Whichever type of addition you finally decide upon, the building contractors at Re-vamp Builders Limited will be there to turn your personal aspirations into an exciting home addition the entire family can enjoy. Keep in mind that house extensions tend to cause more disruption than garden rooms during construction, which might impact some Cottingham homeowners.
If you do opt for an extension with one of our durable flat rubber roofs, we promise to work quietly, respectfully and conscientiously throughout.
