EXTENSIONS ARE THE MOST POPULAR HOME IMPROVEMENT

Modern British living is about embracing space and light, reveals new research which identifies the latest building and renovation trends.

Nearly half (47%) of builders reported extensions as being the most popular trend for home improvements. With the average asking price between a two and three bedroom home in London of £157,202, while the average bedroom extension cost is £35,000, it is no wonder people want to expand and add value to their properties.

With one in seven (15%) of builders reporting access to light as the most common current trend in home re-modelling, householders are continuing to install large bi-folding doors, replacing exterior brickwork or fitting new skylights to make rooms appear more spacious.

The majority (70%) of property improvements tend to be completed within the budget and time frame originally quoted. Builders estimate that only a quarter 26% of projects tend to run beyond the original budget quoted and a third (35%) run over the originally quoted time frame.

When asked what advice they would give homeowners, builders stressed the importance of taking the time to plan exactly what they want to achieve, to thoroughly research the builders they plan to use beforehand and get a minimum of three quotes.
