Building Company in Brighton
At Richley Contractors, we offer a wide range of building services to improve the comfort of your home and to add value to any property. From renovations and refurbishments to loft conversions and kitchen installations, we specialise in bespoke carpentry and general building work. This means we have the skill, experience and personnel to handle practically any home improvement project.
Although we offer a variety of services, many customers in the Brighton area come to our building company to increase their available living space with a house extension.
If you are thinking about extending your property, this page provides some useful information to help you make the best choice.
The different types of extensions we offer include:
These are ideal for Victorian terraced houses, which often have a recess of wasted space at the side of the house. They also suit properties in the Brighton area with a side alleyway and limited garden space. One of the advantages of a side-return extension is that our building company can increase the width of your home, and possibly also its height, without having to sacrifice any of your garden.
Not only does this type of build make use of wasted space, but it may also make your home more secure. Do you currently have a wooden side gate providing access to the rear of your property? If so, a side-return extension can upgrade your privacy and security with a fully integrated entry door.
While a side-return addition may not be large enough for a cinema room or en suite master bedroom, it is a great way to extend your kitchen or living room.
You can also turn it into a convenient utility room.
For customers in Brighton with a large garden, or no room to extend out from the side of their property, a rear-facing extension is the perfect choice. As a professional building company, we construct single-, double- or multi-storey rear-facing additions. Out of the three types of house extension, this one provides the largest amount of living space and possible uses.
Some of the best ways to transform your home with a rear-facing house extension include:
And, if you decide to build upwards as well as outwards, then you can install that brand-new bespoke kitchen downstairs, whilst adding an extra bedroom upstairs.
This will really maximise your investment and available living space.
Our building company combines a side-return and rear-facing addition to create a L-shaped structure, which wraps around your Brighton property at a right angle. If you can’t afford to build a double- or multi-storey extension, wraparounds enable you to gain as much living space as possible from a single-storey structure.
This may also be the perfect option for homeowners who live in a designated area, such as a conservation area or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Such locations often place restrictions on the type of building work you can undertake on your property.
However you are planning to extend your home, Richley Contractors has the knowledge, experience and personnel to bring your plans to life. What’s more, thanks to our comprehensive project management service, we complete extensions on time and under budget, whilst maintaining our excellent standards of workmanship.
