House Extensions

House Extensions

Having an extension built can transform a house you bought within a certain budget into your dream home: It won’t just give you more space, you’ll be able to design it yourself. A home extension can incorporate your dream kitchen and dining room, a sun lounge or a luxurious bathroom, all while making available more space within the house.


Of course, a house extension is also a major job, but Scott Building Contracts can take the stress out of it by taking charge. We’re a one-stop-shop incorporating all the trades needed to carry out this type of work: Electricians, joiners, plasterers – we will supply qualified and experienced professionals, and you only have to deal with us. We can even fit a kitchen or bathroom in the new extension, and you will only ever have to deal with one firm. Everyone we work with has a passion for their trade and we can guarantee everything will be carried out to the highest possible standards.

We also provide clarity and peace of mind on the financial side, with a clear up-front quote based on the work we’ll be doing. We’ll let you know when we can do the work and how long it’s likely to take. Once the work begins, we’ll update you regularly so you know just how your dream home is coming along, and when you can move in to your new extension. Home extensions can be a good investment, but everyone has their budget – that’s why at Scott Building Contracts we can be flexible and try to work around your needs: just get in touch and discuss your requirements with us.

All you need for us to give you a free quotation are suitable designs and planning permission. For this you’ll need an architect to draw up suitable plans for approval, and structural engineering drawings for us to work from. This is also an opportunity to get the best out of your extension: From our considerable experience building extensions, we believe that excellent pre-construction planning is key to the success of a good project and aids the job to run smoothly. If you don’t already have one, we can introduce an architect and any other professionals that you need at the planning stage.
