House Extensions Buckhurst Hill


Buckhurst Hill is a sought-after town in the fabulous Epping Forest area of Essex. Its location, only eighteen miles from the centre of London means that it is a great place to live, with both access to the city and beautiful countryside.

The homes are valued in the high end of the market and therefore if your personal circumstances change and you need more space, it is a very expensive proposition as stamp duty alone will take a big chunk of your budget, let alone estate agents fees which are taken on a percentage of the sold price.

It would be difficult to uproot from such a great location where you have your family settled and your social life.

An obvious solution, especially as many properties in Buckhurst Hill have generous gardens is to extend. A wide variety of styles and ages, you will need expert advice before you embark on this Richway have years of experience in all types of extension.

There are many ways to extend these homes; lofts, basements, side returns and rear extensions which can be one or two storey.

Busy people need professional advice from a company that is expert in all aspects of these builds, from the design, legal aspects, local authorities and building regulations. The can also take away much of the stress of deciding on the best type of extension to suit your needs..

It can be a minefield for those unused to the building trade and this firm can advise you from the outset. Some extensions are covered under permitted development provided they do not exceed a certain size. Some areas are conservation areas and planning permission will be required. This is where professional design and legal knowledge is of so much help. Some will require a perfect match of bricks, roofing and windows. The fun parts are personal choice, for example, whether to have bi-fold doors or roof windows and if you would like a new kitchen or bathroom.

Leave it to Richway to project manage from beginning to end, when you can then move into your gorgeous new space and get to personalise it. You can be assured that all the trades involved have the best credentials and can be trusted to fit your electrics, plumbing, heating etc. to the highest standard. Richway will be able to tell you what is feasible and what is not. Many extensions will need the removal of walls and you will need advice whether these are load bearing and will need steel beams to prevent collapse of the wall above or whether they can be easily removed.

Richway will efficiently keep disruption to a minimum and will be with you through every stage of your build.
