Whether you have a new addition to the family on the way, a home filled with now grown adults or simply want to create more usable space; house extensions or loft conversions in London are the ideal solution for enhancing the living space utilising land you already have.

Home extensions are a much more cost-effective solution when compared to the likes of moving home and they also help by adding vital value to your property. It’s therefore a huge win for the property owner. Not only do you save thousands by avoiding moving fees including the likes of stamp duty but you also gain thousands in the market value of your home. Win win.

Adding space & value with home extensions in London

Many think a house extension isn’t an option but soon find themselves surprised at just what’s possible.

As any good company knows, one client is never the same as the next. That’s why using a company who are experienced within the industry is a must. Not only will they have the knowledge to create a first-class extension but they’ll have the experience needed to adapt your home extension to your property and your requirements.

The likes of Clapham Construction Service who carry out home extensions in London, take a complete bespoke approach to every single project. Whether you’re looking to add a small addition to your period property or a large scale addition to your contemporary build; their team provides an individual service to suit and that’s precisely what you need.

Complete process

We always suggest hiring a company that provides an all inclusive service. Not only does it make the entire experience much easier for you, but encourages a much smoother process from start to finish as communication is and always will be easier when kept in-house. Instead of dealing with multiple agencies, you instead deal with one point of contact. Clapham Construction Service are big believers in an all-inclusive service like this, handling everything from the design, all the way through to the finished project.

How it works

Depending on the company you work with, here’s a general rule of thumb of what you can expect when diving into a home extension.

Initial consultation

Everything begins with an initial consultation where you meet the company you’ll be working with. It’s at this consultation where they’ll get to know your home and your style, as well as what you’re hoping to achieve. They’ll also usually discuss possible costs involved as well as time frames.

The design & admin

If you’re using an all-inclusive service, then they’ll next begin the design, getting it exactly as you want it. Once they have everything as you like it, they should deal with planning permission, building regulations, third party wall agreements and more. Once this is all taken care of, it’s then on to construction.


Once all the legalities are taken care of, it’s time to construct the project. Companies such as Clapham Construction Service not only construct your home extension but project manage it too. That means them dealing with every part of it, from ordering and delivery of materials to ensuring each member of the team is where they should be when they need to be.
