Common Mistakes To Avoid When Building A Home Extension
Building an extension isn’t an idea that is formed and decided overnight. There is a lot of planning and consideration that needs to take place. If you are contemplating an extension, as builders in Surrey, we recommend that you have a look at our guide to avoid common mistakes:
Choose the right builders in Surrey
When comparing quotes, it’s often your first instinct to go for the cheapest option. We advise you to consider every aspect of the quote and ask for a breakdown of every section so you can compare apples for apples, rather than oranges to apples. This way you make sure the quotes all include the same things so that you make sure there are no surprises.
Check your planning permission
This may seem self explanatory, but it has often been the case that some have either got the wrong planning permission or that they made changes to the original design that was approved and had to do the process twice. Take your time to ensure that your designs and specifications are exactly what you want. Get the advice of an architect and a builder to help you.
The right materials
It can often be the case that you are building an extension on a budget. The easiest way to reduce the cost is to purchase sub par materials. This may seem like a good plan in the short run, but we have seen on many occasions how this has backfired. Sub par materials can often lead to more work being needed further down the line when it either fails to achieve its purpose, or it has caused another issue elsewhere. Make sure you don’t reduce the costs this way as you may have a hefty bill in a few years time trying to fix it.
It can often be the case that you want to get the show on the road as soon as possible. We understand this, but you need to take the time to do everything properly. Cutting corners can lead to expensive repairs. Or finishing the project and then realising it wasn’t quite what you had imagined. Take your time to think of the plan. Get the right drawings and builder before taking the next steps too quickly.
