Fitzroy Home Renovations And Extensions Projects

All houses eventually get old or become too small for the occupants to live comfortably. Just because a property suited your needs when you bought it doesn’t mean it will last forever. You may be getting married or plan to have children and your house is no longer suitable for your requirements. 

It is at this time that homeowners are faced with the question of whether to sell up or renovate. One of the main reasons to renovate is to avoid the high cost associated with exiting and re-entering the real estate market. When it comes to costs a well-managed renovation or extension can add extra space that a family needs for a lot less than it would cost to move somewhere else. 

Our team of highly qualified designers at Period Extensions & Designs can help you improve the comfort and functionality of your home by adding an extra bedroom or bathroom or to modernise your older house and turning it into the home you have always dreamed of living in.  If you decide to partner with us you will have the best professional advice and expert support on your side to help you make the right decisions at every step of your home renovation journey.
