What Type of Extension would Suit Your Property?
Rear House Extension:
Are you thinking about simply adding a room (or rooms) to the back of your home? Rear extensions are generally cost-effective and straightforward and can sometimes be achieved without planning permission.
Single Storey Extension:
Single Storey Extension generally added to the side or back of the home. The single-storey extension is popular with homeowners who need additional kitchen, living or entertaining space. Whether you build onto the side, rear, or front of your home, a single-storey extension is a great way to add extra room for a growing family, cater for hobbies or create that designated area for work-from-home arrangements.
Double Storey Extension:
Why not double the room without doubling the price?! A double-storey extension is a perfect way to maximize your space and transform the functionality of your home (and it is generally cheaper per square meter than a single-storey extension).
Wrap Around Extension:
Wrap around extension adding onto both the side and the rear of the home to create that ‘L’ shaped extension is a popular choice for homeowners who need the space but don’t want to chew into too much of their rear garden area. Wraparounds provide endless opportunities for extending kitchen and living areas, or for creating casual entertaining spaces.
How Much Will My House Extension Cost in London?
The cost of your house extension will depend on complexity of the project and the part of London. Again, the closer to zone 1, the more expensive the logistics and the more restriction complications.
The roof structure will also influence the cost – a flat roof structure is likely to be cheaper than a crown roof structure. Another factor that will influence cost is the depth of the foundations. If there are trees close to your future extension, the foundation may need to be excavated to 2.5m deep. A piling may even need to be considered.
The approximate cost of an extension is somewhere between £1700 and £2000 p/m2.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much value will a home extension add to my home?
Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question: the size and style you choose will ultimately determine how much value your extension adds to your home.

How long does it take to build a home extension?
Depending on the size and complexity of your project, Combit Constructions, specialist builders in North London, generally allow between 3 – 4 months for project completion.
