Main Advantages of Single-Storey Extensions

Speed of Construction

An extension with only one storey is quicker to build than a double-storey addition. Many homeowners are concerned about the disruption building work may cause and want the project to be completed as quickly as possible. One-storey house extensions allow you to maximise living space while reducing disruption to your home.

Cost of the Project

Naturally, smaller extensions are cheaper to build. If you are working with a tight budget, a single-storey extension may be the best choice for meeting your goals. You may hear that a two-storey extension is only marginally more expensive because the foundations are already in place. However, extending the first floor may involve further house renovations like structural alterations, which can quickly add to the cost.

Natural Light

A single-storey extension allows you to flood your living space with natural light by incorporating rooflights or a roof lantern into design and build services. This is an excellent way to create bright, airy and stunning kitchens, dining spaces and living rooms. Going one step further, our building contractors also install conservatories and orangeries for clients in Camberley and the surrounding areas, creating new spaces which maximise glazing and light.

Prevent Overdevelopment

For most homes, a single-storey extension will add noticeable value to the property, providing space for a ground floor layout that’s desirable to modern buyers. However, a double-storey extension won’t necessarily add much more value.

Consequently, you could end up putting more into your home than you will get back when you sell.
