Top 5 things to consider when extending your home

Building an extension is a great way to add comfort, space and value to your family home in Wigan. Here at Leyland Skips, we know how difficult it can be to extend your home – regardless of location – and have put together a few things that you’ll need to take into account to ensure smooth operation.

  1. Budget

Before you start buying materials and arranging skip hire in Wigan, you need to set yourself a realistic budget, after all, the last thing you want to do is spend £100,000 on an extension that’s only going to add £50,000 to the value of your home.

Although hiring labourers to get the job done may cost you more and take longer to complete, you can relax in the knowledge that your extension is built properly and to the highest quality standard.

  1. Plan

Whether it be to provide extra space for your growing family, creating a home office/gym or off-road parking (i.e. garage), there are many different reasons to extend your home. Taking your time to plan your extension will ensure maximum value for money.

  1. Duration

The local authority will allow your neighbours to object against your building plans and it can take 4 weeks for them to give you the go-ahead. Once building work is underway, it could take anywhere up to 3 months – depending on the extent of the job.

  1. Waste disposal

Hiring a skip will enable you to remove unwanted materials quick and easy – saving you the hassle of making tireless trips to the local tip. We supply a variety of domestic skips for skip hire Wigan, including:
