How to Choose a Construction Company For Your Home Extension

Adding an extension to your home can be a great way to increase your living space, add property value and make your home more comfortable and functional. However, it's important to choose the right construction company for the job.


Here are a few tips to help you make the best decision:

Do your research

Before you start contacting construction companies, take some time to do your research. This includes reading online reviews, talking to friends and family who have had home extensions done and checking out the websites of different construction companies.

Get multiple quotes

Speak to the construction companies

Once you've received a few quotes, it's time to interview the companies. This is your chance to get to know the company and its staff and to ask any questions you have about your home extension.

Check references

Be sure to check the references of any company you're considering. This will give you a good idea of the quality of their work and their customer service.

Get everything in writing

Once you've chosen a construction company, ask for everything to be written in a contract. This includes the scope of the work, the timeline, the cost and any other relevant details. It will help you avoid any foul play and you will have insurance if things go wrong.
