Need more space around the house, many people today now look at adding an extension to the home rather than moving…

If you are considering any sort of extensions in Essex, Sovereign Home Improvements is the obvious choice.

We can provide any type of extension that you wish.

Adding An Extension To The Home…

Many people these days choose to add a conservatory to their home, and it is most certainly a way to enjoy the great outdoors in all weathers and at any time of year.

With all that glass, you can sit and enjoy your garden come rain or shine.

Many of the older conservatories that were built in the 80’s and 90’s are too hot in summer and too cold in winter.

However, today we use reflective glass which will ensure that the conservatory doesn’t get too hot in summer, and of course, you can have it heated for the winter as you would any other room.

You might also choose to have the Guardian Warm Roof on your conservatory.

This is a solid roof, and at Sovereign Home Improvements we are now official installers in the county.

Orangeries in Essex are also gaining in popularity.

Many people don’t really understand the difference between a conservatory and an orangery.

Orangeries were so called because they were extensions that were added to the homes of wealthy landowners as far back as the 17th century when they wanted to grow oranges and other citrus fruits in the UK.

Today, most orangeries don’t have as much glass as conservatories which have glass wall to ceiling.

Orangeries tend to have about three feet of brickwork at the base, but they still incorporate a lot of glass.

Of course, there are other ways of adding an extension to the home, and one that has also gained popularity recently is the home office.

This is because, with the growth of the internet, many people can work from home instead of going into an office.

But, of course, you need peace and quiet and to get away from the kids: the home office is the perfect answer.

Other people need a home extension because of a growing family when the kids want their own bedrooms.

Adding an extension can be an awful lot cheaper than moving to a bigger home, and it means that you can stay in your local area among family and friends rather than moving away.

Of course, whatever sort of extension you add to your home it is going to add value, so if you do want to sell at some time in the future it is also an investment.
