Any type of house extension can add that extra or much-needed space to a property, and increase the value of your home at the same time. No wonder they are escalating in popularity. If you like the area and house that you live and don’t wish to move then a home conversion might be the answer and perfect solution for you to stay and extend. It poses the question, why move when I can improve?
I would say that one of the most important parts of any house extension project to get right is the brickwork. It's the main component that will be on show, so the design element, style, bricklaying skills of the builder laying the bricks all need to come together in cohesion.
Whatever type of new extension you choose, the design, bond and choice of bricks all need to blend in and stitch together with your existing brickwork, the last thing you want is a hideous structure attached to your original building that looks out of place, just need to create a harmony that flows between the two.
A well thought out extension can work well and really enhance your property, the texture, tones and selection of brick are major principles to consider before any bricks are laid.
A couple of things to contemplate when choosing your design are the actual cost against the appearance aspect. Basically, the types of bricks that you choose can impact the overall price of your extension, brick prices can vary considerably.
After you have made your selection of bricks then another part to consider is the bond and pattern for the brick extension structure. This can have an enormous influence on the strength of the overall construction and aesthetics. Together this will have benefits to the load distribution and what your home extension looks like externally, all this needs to be taken into consideration and worked out.
