House Extensions

We offer a wide range of high quality building services.

Here at Wright Ruffell, we have a wealth of experience in building extensions of all shapes and sizes. This ranges from a porch being added to the house being doubled in size, adding a new living room or even building a space against your rear wall.

Our building experience is vast and covers single storey, double storey, kitchen and garage extensions. Our works usually take place in Great Bentley, Colchester, Ardleigh as well as the surrounding areas of Essex and Suffolk.

There are many ways to create an extra living area and new extension ideas are being thought of every day. Whether you are looking to have one built that is similar to other extension designs or you want to try something completely new, we’ll support you throughout the whole process with our dedicated project management and experience.

What are the Costs

One of the questions we get asked the most, is what is the home extension cost? How much is a home extension? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this. There are many different figures being thrown around when you search for this online. We could give you the average cost of building an extension, but that would be based on our own average and not truly representative.

We know that each project is completely unique and treat each one as such. Therefore, each of our project prices will be as different as the properties are to each other.

Our process involves creating a project specification that all parties agree to. This will detail all project costs and you can expect no additional costs within that specification. Our building costs do not change throughout a project and what we quote is what we charge. At the end of the project, you can expect to have paid the total cost that was agreed at the beginning of the project as well as a project you are happy and proud of.

What Our Clients Say

Andy Kingston

Single Storey Extension

I have worked with numerous contractors over the last 20 or so years, and would definitely recommend the team at WRS. They’re a family run firm that cares about their jobs. Their positive and helpful approach throughout the build made the process run smoothly, and meant that issues, questions or variations were dealt with quickly and efficiently. They were a pleasure to work with

MRS. T. E. Hargreaves

I have been complimented on numerous occasions about the build and how it blends in with the original house. This is a direct reflection on the work of Wright and Ruffell
