Homes in Surrey and the south-east have been popular for many decades. It’s not just their proximity to London that tempts homeowners; the wide range of properties on offer in busy towns and quiet, traditional villages means there’s something for everyone.
But not every home has quite the right amount of space, or a layout that suits a growing family. If your home needs updating, a Refresh Renovations extension could be the perfect solution.
How do I find a good builder in Surrey?
The best known architectural style in Surrey is the late 19th century Arts and Crafts Movement, which influenced building design worldwide. Pioneered by Edwin Lutyens, who grew up in Surrey, many fine examples can still be found, particularly in the so-called ‘Golden Triangle’ between Guildford, Farnham and Haslemere.
The long history of Surrey has seen many other architectural styles over the centuries, from medieval to Edwardian and Victorian, inter-war mid-century modern style and contemporary commuter developments. Traditional 18th and 19th-century farmhouses and barn conversions enjoy picturesque rural settings on the North Downs and Surrey Hills.
This variety offers many opportunities and challenges to homeowners. Whatever the age and style of your property, a local specialist will best understand the design, construction and materials of your home to help you make the most of its potential and minimise the risk of costly delays.
Surrey Refresh specialist Kelley Malcher and her team can enhance the period character of your property with a sensitively-designed extension – or transform it with a contrasting modern look, if that’s more your style.
Is there a Surrey builder who can do all the work?
The experts at Refresh Renovations Surrey can cover all your extension needs, from the initial design to a detailed budget and timeline, and work with trusted local suppliers and craftsmen to carry out the project.
Refresh Renovations works throughout Surrey, including the popular towns of Guildford, Woking, Epsom, Ewell, Camberley, Ashford, Farnham, Staines and Redhill.
As renovation specialists, Kelley and the team have extensive experience of all kinds of home extensions. They have developed close relationships with carefully selected, experienced tradespeople, to ensure a high quality service and give you access to trade discounts that deliver the best value for money.
Unlike other Surrey builders, Refresh Renovations offers a full design-and-build service. From the outset, Refresh experts work with you to understand your needs. You’ll know exactly what to expect, how much the work will cost, and when it will be completed. You’ll also have a single point of contact providing clear, stress-free communication throughout your extension project.
What can I achieve with my budget?
Every renovation project is different, so the cost of a home extension in Surrey will vary depending on what you want to achieve, the size and complexity of the work needed, and the level of finish you choose.
For example, a simple kitchen extension within the existing footprint of the house can be completed for around £10,000-£20,000. Alternatively, a laundry room might cost as little as £5,000 if inserted into an existing garage or outhouse, and can free up valuable space elsewhere.
To add a new master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, budget somewhere between £15,000 and £50,000 – but the possibilities are endless. The Surrey Refresh Renovations team can help you decide whether a loft conversion, rear extension or internal redesign best suits you and your lifestyle.
Do I need planning permission for an extension in Surrey?
You may not need planning permission for your home extension if it meets certain requirements. Small single- or two-storey rear extensions and small loft conversions, for example, may fall within 'permitted development’ rules and require no planning permission.
Whether your project qualifies as permitted development or not, Refresh Renovations will take care of all required planning and building regulations permits as part of their end-to-end project management service.
