As urban areas become more dense and real estate values continue to rise, demand for additional living and workspace has skyrocketed. Homeowners are no longer settling for the limited space that their current home offers and are instead seeking cost-effective ways to further expand the size of their homes. Here at Glassier, we offer a range of extensions that are perfect for any kind of home. Our range of Conservatory styles includes, Lean-To, Victorian, Edwardian, Gable and Bespoke.

One popular solution that has been steadily rising in popularity is an extension, which is an additional structure built onto a home. Extensions come in all shapes and sizes, from small office nooks to extra vertical stories that add much needed square footage to a home. When it comes to an economical and effective way to increase the size of a home without the hassle of moving, extensions are becoming an attractive option. While extensions can provide extra space such as a workspace, extra bedroom, or even a second story, they do come with some cons. It’s important to consider things like the permits required and costs of construction before adding an extension to your home.

It’s no secret that adding an extension to your home can considerably increase its value. But just how much is open for debate. In this article, we look at the complexities of house extensions and provide guidance on just how much value an extension could potentially add to your home.

Location is Important

Firstly, it’s important to consider the area that you live in, as this can affect the eventual value of your property- even with the luxurious addition of a conservatory or extension. Homeowners will also need to think about what type of extension you want: an extra bedroom, a conservatory, or a larger kitchen? Each type has different costs associated with them and will add various degrees of value to the house. For example, a room for relaxing such as a conservatory is a cost effective way to add space, but wouldn’t be suitable for home improvements like adding a extra bedroom.

Additionally, you need to consider if the neighbourhood you live in would value an extension. If you live in a rural area, it’s unlikely your finished extension will have a high monetary value, as there aren’t many buyers for large homes in these locations. However, opting for a conservatory might help bring in buyers- showcasing the great outdoors. In the city, on the other hand, you might be more likely to command a higher return for a fully built extension.

Think About the Materials

The scale of the extension and the quality of materials used are two major factors to consider. A large extension might improve the flow of your house, but expensive materials could create an overall cost that outweighs any potential value increase. Conservatories provide a better value for money alternative, requiring less in building materials to look their best. You should also look out for local building regulations and customisations which could impact on your choice of materials and design. 

Our conservatories are manufactured using uPVC. uPVC has become a highly popular home construction material due to its various benefits including its inherent strength, durability, thermal efficiency and security. Additionally, uPVC is highly customisable, therefore giving homeowners the creative capacity to design bespoke spaces which ultimately will add value to their property as well as providing stunning visuals.

Materials are vital to think about when designing a new conservatory, although you should also take the products you choose into consideration. Conservatories usually have doors opening up to a homes garden. Glassier install bifold doors or French doors and each profile will bring different values. This applies to the style and positioning of windows too.

Crunch the Numbers

Finally, you need to think about the return on investment (ROI) that you want or are expecting. Extending a home is a major project which requires patience and money, as well as structures that can last for years. The company you choose to trust with your project is also important- to ensure a high quality outcome with the level of efficiency you should expect. If you’re unsure about an extension, you could instead opt for simpler DIY projects, such as adding shelving or storage to your existing home. These additions will add aesthetic value to your home, but won’t be valued when people look at buying the property itself. 

Ultimately, the amount of value a house extension will add to your home depends greatly on the project itself and how it can benefit potential buyers. Consider carefully all the factors surrounding your build before committing to such a project, and you should get the maximum Return of Interest that your money and effort can allow!
