Preparing Your Home for Construction: What to Expect

This is the stage whereby you decide to move out for the project duration or we agree a plan of action and which order the process will begin. Before construction begins on your home extension, we will need to prepare your property for the work ahead. This may include clearing the area of debris or existing structures, and installing temporary fencing or barriers. During this phase, Buildworks will also begin to assess the site and prepare the ground for foundation work.

Laying the Foundation: The Importance of Site Preparation for Your Home Extension

Once the foundation is in place, your contractor will begin to build the frame of your home extension. This often involves using wooden or steel framing to create the walls, floors, and roof of the structure. We will also begin to install the electrical and plumbing systems, making sure to coordinate with any existing systems in your home.

Home Extension: New Roof, Walls, Doors, and Windows

The roof is one of the most important elements of your home extension, providing protection from the elements and helping to regulate temperature. Together with your architects’ plans, we will install a sturdy and durable roof, it’s important to also install any necessary ventilation systems to help regulate airflow.

With the frame and roof in place, your home extension will begin to take shape with building new walls, installing doors and windows using high quality manufacturing processes. You can see the project above mentions aluminium bi-fold doors, this metal is a popular choice for the frames, and some homeowners prefer aluminium to steel.

In the UK bi-fold door manufacturing process, aluminium and steel are two commonly used materials for frames. Here are some different characteristics of aluminium and steel frames:

  1. Weight: Aluminium is a lighter material than steel, which makes it easier to handle and install.
  2. Strength: Steel is a stronger material than aluminium and can withstand more weight and pressure. This makes it a good choice for larger or heavier bi-fold doors.
  3. Corrosion resistance: Aluminium is highly resistant to corrosion, which makes it a good choice for doors that are exposed to moisture or humidity. Steel can be susceptible to rust and corrosion over time, remember the Great British weather we have here.
  4. Finish: Aluminium can be easily painted or powder-coated to achieve a variety of finishes, while steel can also be painted but may require more preparation to achieve a smooth finish.
  5. Thermal performance: Aluminium frames tend to offer better thermal performance than steel frames, as they are less conductive and can help to insulate the building, we know this living in the East Midlands of England.
  6. Cost: Aluminium frames tend to be more expensive than steel frames, as they are a premium material. Steel frames may be a more cost-effective option for certain applications.

These are just some of the different characteristics of aluminium and steel frames in the bi-fold door manufacturing process. The choice of material will depend on a variety of factors, including the size of the door, the location of the building, the design aesthetic, and the budget.

Increase In Property Value – Investing In Bricks and Mortar

Another reason for a home extension is to add value to the property. By increasing the living space, homeowners can also increase the resale value of their property. This can be a smart investment, especially if the extension is done in a way that is in keeping with the existing design and character of the property.

Homeowners may also choose to extend their property to create a specific type of space. For example, an extension can be used to create a home office, a playroom for children, or a space for entertaining guests. By tailoring the extension to specific needs, homeowners can create a more functional and enjoyable living space.

Don’t Move – Improve – Save Relocation Costs

In some cases, homeowners may choose to extend their property as a way of avoiding the costs and hassle of moving. Moving can be expensive and disruptive, and an extension can provide an alternative solution that allows homeowners to stay in their current home while still meeting their changing needs.

Working From Home Office – In today’s technology driven world, some homeowners choose to extend their property simply because they enjoy the process of creating and designing a new space. An extension can be an exciting opportunity to personalise a property and create a unique living space that reflects the owner’s personality and style.

No matter the reason for the extension, it’s important for homeowners to work with a reputable contractor who can guide them through the process and ensure that the finished product meets their expectations. With careful planning and attention to detail, a home extension can be a smart investment that improves the functionality and value of a property while creating a more enjoyable living space for the entire family.
