While we primarily cover Llandudno with the combined services of a groundwork contractor, building contractor and roofing contractor, we can bring in other tradesmen to the job. This matters in terms of the electrical and gas supply, but we also consider the impact of windows, doors and insulation. Is it worth renovating house extensions that aren’t designed around modern living, or to current environmental standards?
House renovations differ to extensions. We can’t demolish and rebuild an entire home, but we can bring down an extension and replace it with a new energy efficient alternative.
Our groundwork contractors can assess the structural strength of house extensions to see if they’ll adapt to a new design. If there are additional loads to consider with an upgrade, especially if you add another storey to your Llandudno home, you might also need the services of a structural engineer. This is something we can arrange for you. If an extension needs underpinning, it might be better to build from scratch.
When we perform interior and exterior house renovations, our approach to structural alterations tends to be more fixed.
Cost of Renovation or Replacement
Using us in our dual role of a building contractor and roofing contractor will always lead to affordable pricing but, when it comes to house extensions, making the right decision could literally add up to thousands of pounds in savings. The cost of renovating an extension Llandudno is typically between £25,000 and £35,000. Much of this cost covers changes which make a room addition compliant with UK Building Regulations.
Unforeseen work, like a boiler replacement, will push up the price. Because new house extensions can cost between £45,000 and £55,000, the margin could make a new build preferable.
Sometimes, house renovations only cover a single element of a build. For groundwork contractors, this can be something to do with a structural issue that needs underpinning. For building contractors, it can be brickwork, blockwork or plaster. In our experience, we find that singular issues with house extensions often start at the top. Some additions have flat roofs laid with older hot bitumen and felt systems which have failed.
Our roofing contractors can replace extension roofs in the Llandudno area using an innovative GRP fibreglass system.
