What is an extension?

An extension is a simple term often used to describe extending a property for increased living space. This could be adding bedrooms, extending into the garden for increased in-door living space, building a granny annexe or even extending with an outbuilding, conservatory or orangery. The main difference between an extension and full refurbishment is that the works on an extension is localised to the one area of the project i.e. when building a granny annexe, the rest of the house structure would not be compromised. Full refurbishments work across the whole property. A simple extension job can still be a large upheaval, so we understand the importance of accurate timescales. Our professional approach which sees us use project management tactics usually reserved for large commercial builds ensures clients receive a superior quality service. This approach helps clients feel in control, informed at each stage and satisfied the project is being managed efficiently to target and budget.


  • I have no hesitation in recommending Dan Meakins and his team at X-tru Projects. When I needed my one bedroom flat in Central London completely renovated, Dan provided me with a speedy and detailed estimate for the works. His professionals started within two weeks and finished on time and on budget. Following completion, Dan straightened out any snaggingissues without hesitation. He was easy to get hold of andcommunicate with throughout the project. I would certainly use X-tru Projects again.
