Property Extensions in Henley on Thames, Reading and All Surrounding Areas
Types of Property Extensions Explained

There are many different types of property extensions to create the space that you need in your home. At Colin Sawyer & Son Builders Limited, our expert team can help you determine which one will be best for your build. We will establish the correct extension based on your objectives, requirements and the original structure of your home in Reading, Henley on Thames or any of the surrounding Oxfordshire areas.

Here, our house extension builders have explained the different types of extensions to help you figure out which one may be right for you. Please explore our company blog for further advice and information, including the benefits of a new kitchen.

Single-Storey Extensions

Single-storey extensions are a simple and effective way to add extra space to your property. They allow you to transform the downstairs of your build by adding an open-plan kitchen area, utility room or home office. Single-storey extensions are a cost-effective alternative to the stress of moving house. These types of extensions are typically built on the side or at the rear of properties.

Rear-Facing Extensions

Rear-facing extensions can improve the flow of homes and are cheaper than moving out of the home you love. They are a popular extension because they open up houses and connect them with the garden, creating a bright and spacious area. To construct these extensions, our team will extend into part of your garden or patio space to create additional living space. Rear extensions are perfect for those wanting to transform their kitchen, add a kitchen island or create an open-plan living space.

Side-Return Extensions

A side-return extension is also a great choice for creating an extended kitchen area. We construct these property extensions by altering an unused pathway or alleyway down the side of a build into additional living space. It will run along the ground floor of homes in Reading, Henley on Thames and the surrounding areas and will enlarge the attached room.

This extension doesn’t take up any space that is in use. The new space can also be used as a utility room or an extended living room.

Wraparound Extensions

Wraparound extensions are a combination of a side-return and a rear-facing extension. They create an ‘L-shape’ around the back of a property to form a spacious addition to a home. These extensions can help you reconfigure the layout of your build by adding a new kitchen, dining and/or open-plan space. Wraparound extensions increase space and alter the shape, size and feel of your home.

Double-Storey Extensions

The quality double-storey extensions the team at Colin Sawyer & Son Builders Limited construct add space to multiple floors, allowing customers to achieve maximum space in their build in Reading, Henley on Thames or the surrounding areas. Depending on the scale of property extensions, we can either enlarge existing rooms, such as living rooms and bedrooms, or create new rooms, including home offices, en suite bathrooms and kitchens.
