Does your home no longer meet your needs, but you still want to live there? A home extension is the answer! Rather than having to move away from a location and neighbourhood that you love, extending your home to better meet your needs might be just what you need. Whether you want a new or larger deck for those summer barbeques, an extra room to give the teenager some space, or you just need more storage or a home office, PGR Builders can match your home extension with the existing building, or give it a modern twist. Either way you’ll get the extra space you need, so that you can fully enjoy and use your home the way you’d like.
Adding an extension to your existing home will not only allow you to better use your house and stay in your current location, but will also add value to your property. And when you factor in moving, bank and advertising costs, a home extension may work out to be less expensive than a move.
How much does a house extension cost?
This is a question that cannot be answered fully here, as no two home extension projects are the same. You won’t be able to get an accurate measure of the cost until the extension plans have been drawn up. The cost of a home extension will vary widely depending on:
- The scope of the job
- The size of the home extension
- The design and materials you choose
- The site access
- How level the site is
- How much excavation is required
- How much demolition is required
- The age of the house and type of construction
- The inclusions and exclusions of your house extension

How long does a house extension take?
Again, this will depend on the scope of each individual project. Obviously, bigger and more involved jobs will take longer than small and simple jobs. Our expert team will be able to give you a rough idea of how long your project will take when they provide you with a home extension quote.
Who will design my home extension?
House extensions will usually be designed by an architect or building designer. However, it’s a good idea to get some input from your builder during the design stage.
What is the process for extending my home?
Once you have your home extension plans prepared, we’ll be able to give you a cost and time estimate for the project. You’ll need to obtain planning permission from your local council for the project to go ahead – which can sometimes take quite some time. Once this has been agreed upon, the extension project can go ahead. You’ll also need to decide whether you’ll be able to live in the home while the extension is taking place – a decision which will depend on how much of your home will be affected by the extension work.
What type of extensions do you offer?
