With the expert advice of our building and groundwork contractors, find out whether house renovations, extensions, or other services are the best choice for you.

Planning a New Build?

If so, remember that our new home builders bring a passion to all projects. We create beautiful extensions, can manage the construction of an entirely new home, and deliver outstanding workmanship for everything from the first fix to the final, decorative flourishes.

Your project requires foundation installers who will apply their years of experience for long-term quality. By choosing JH Building Services, your new home, extension or landscape receives a reliable foundation that protects from soil changes.

Reasons to Extend

House extensions are one of the most popular types of home improvement because they create practical space at a cost-effective price. If you find you are struggling for space, or living conditions are becoming cramped, an extension could be the ideal solution.

Some reasons to call our builders in Forest Row for an extension include:

  • You have a growing family that needs, or will need, more space.
  • You want a larger kitchen or a kitchen-diner that will act as the focal point of your home.
  • You want to create an open plan space to create a brighter, airier and more communal home.
  • You need a dedicated laundry space, which our building contractors achieve by constructing a new utility room.
  • You need space to pursue a hobby.
  • You work from home and require a home office to work productively and peacefully.

As new home builders, foundation installers and more besides, we will be delighted to help you decide on the right extension for your home.

Reasons to Renovate

While many homeowners instantly think of house extensions as a way to improve their homes, there are often other solutions. Depending on the needs of your household, house renovations may be a more effective way to solve your problems. The following are some key reasons our building contractors renovate properties in Forest Row:

  • You have enough space, but you want to alter the interior layout of your home.
  • You want to maximise your outdoor space, which our groundwork contractors do by building patios, driveways and other hardscape features.
  • Your plumbing, heating or wiring system is old, worn out or ineffective.
  • Your property has structural issues.
  • The size and layout of your house is fine, but you want to update elements such as the kitchen or bathroom.
  • You want to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
  • Your house needs various repairs or updates to make it more functional.

Combined Projects

Often while carrying out house renovations in Forest Row, our customers also wish to extend their properties to really maximise their space. Combining renovations with house extensions or loft conversions is ideal if you want to completely transform or modernise your home.

At the planning stage of your project, our builders and groundwork contractors will walk through all your options and make professional recommendations to ensure you are getting the best solutions for your needs as well as the best value for money.
