Why move when you can improve?

Whilst a loft conversion makes the best use of existing space, a home extension is the best way of creating additional space for growing families without the upheaval or expense of moving home.

At Herts and Essex Lofts our extensions are designed to match the style and build quality of your existing home, maintaining architectural integrity and adding significantly to the value of the property.

To achieve the highest build quality we recommend the use of sloping extension roofs, which have the longest life expectancy and can, where appropriate, be fitted with Velux roof windows.

As with loft conversions, our advisory team will work with you in discussing your needs and preferences, outlining the practical possibilities and offering ideas and design proposals. We will advise you if your extension needs planning consent and, if necessary, we will prepare plans and make submissions on your behalf.

An extension will add an exciting new dimension to your family life. Here are a few of the more popular uses to which a home extension can be put:

Kitchen/Dining Room

A kitchen/dining room is the focus of modern family living, entertainment and social interaction. At Herts & Essex Lofts we have made a speciality of kitchen/dining extensions, and can supply fitted kitchens, workstations and breakfast bars as part of the service.

Home Office

For the self-employed or home-based executive a home office is an increasingly popular option that offers the twin benefits of accessibility and privacy (to be at home yet apart from it). It’s also a good place to do the household accounts or for the kids to do their homework.

Play Room

A safe and comfortable play area is not only fun for young children: it gives you, as parents, peace of mind and saves child-proofing the rest of your home! Once your children have outgrown it, a play room can be converted into a family area, such as a TV lounge or gym.
