Here, we answer frequently asked questions from clients in Petersfield.

Can you build property extensions to blend in with the style of my home?

Yes, we can. Nursted Builders always accounts for the design of your home if we are planning to build one of our property extensions. We are especially stringent when extending homes in conservation areas because we have an obligation to make sure the materials used tie in with all local properties.

We can build property extensions, over one or more storeys, in rear-facing, side-return, wraparound and over-structure designs.

Which styles can you build loft conversions in?

The simplest and most affordable of our loft conversions covers the installation of roof windows but homeowners in Petersfield can also use us to convert in the popular dormer, mansard and hip-to-gable styles. Each of these designs add vital living space to your property for you to use as your family wishes.

Loft conversions optimise the underused attic space in your home so that it is habitable and not just a storage area for clutter and Christmas decorations.

Will garage conversions need planning approval?

This will depend on whether one of our garage conversions increases height of the original build, or its footprint. So long as the building work stays inside a certain set of parameters, you won’t need planning approval from your local authority. Instead, the job will fall within your permitted development rights.

Our previous garage conversions in Petersfield have been used as extended kitchens, as gyms and yoga studios, and as productive home offices.

Are home renovations likely to be disruptive?

This will depend on the scale of the building work required. Home renovations are often more complex than refurbishments. The maintenance and repair work needed can be quite extensive and, if we need to remove the roof or make major structural alterations, you may need to vacate temporarily.

Wherever possible, however, we work on one area at a time so that you are never overly inconvenienced while home renovations are still ongoing.

Can kitchen refurbishments be managed in-house?

Yes. Nursted Builders has a multiskilled team that includes subcontractors we personally know and trust. In addition to our own builders, we can assign installers, carpenters, joiners, electricians, plumbers and heating engineers to kitchen refurbishments in Petersfield. Just a single phone call covers it all.

If you have an interest in a renovation project, kitchen refurbishments can be an excellent addition to the specification if you love to cook or entertain.

How do I stand to benefit from bathroom installations?

Most homeowners overlook modifications to their bathroom space, but we see this area as one of the most important parts of the home. Book in for bathroom installations with Nursted Builders and you (and your family) will have a purpose-designed retreat available to enjoy on your own terms.

Bathroom installations in Petersfield, much like our kitchen refurbishments, are kept in-house so that project costs and timescales stay under tight control.
