The builders at Camberford Construction Ltd provide services in the nearby Farnborough area. For domestic customers (those living in residential properties), we build new room additions in the form of house extensions. Our company also transforms existing and underused home space into loft conversions or garage conversions. For our commercial clients, such as development companies, we specialise in the creation of new builds.
Our builders also undertake most types of property renovation and refurbishment work in Farnborough – for domestic customers and for commercial clients alike.
On this page, we explain exactly what loft conversions, garage conversions, house extensions and new builds are, and how each of them can provide benefits for your Farnborough site or home not just in terms of an investment, but also as a valuable addition to the way you live or to enhance the attractiveness of your personal property portfolio.
A loft conversion, sometimes referred to as an attic conversion, is the transformation of existing space in your Farnborough home to create something new; perhaps a bedroom, a home office, a man cave or simply somewhere to relax. There are three loft conversion types to consider – the Dormer, the Mansard and the hip-to-gable. All have different benefits and work well on an individual basis based on the current layout of an attic.
If a loft conversion falls within permitted development rights, builders rarely need to apply for planning permission. Any major structural alternations, however, will almost certainly require approval from the local authority for Farnborough – especially on party walls. Camberford Construction Ltd manages your planning permission and approval needs.
Like loft conversions, garage conversions optimise space you already have but which almost certainly isn’t used to full capacity at the moment. Most homeowners in the Farnborough area leave their cars on the roadside or the driveway even if they have a garage, and use the available space for the storage of domestic appliances, tools and personal belongings. It seems a waste not to utilise this underused part of the home for something worthwhile.
A garage conversion is the simplest and most affordable way for our builders to add new living space to a Farnborough home. With the foundations, the walls and the roofing already in place, much of the work involved centres on insulating the build, adding partitioning, developing the electrical supply and, if needed, introducing a water and heating supply.
It’s important to remember that house extensions are new builds in themselves. While conversions optimise space that already exists within the confines of the property, house extensions utilise space around the property. This will nearly always mean losing part of the garden, but homeowners in Farnborough have more scope with an extension than they ever would with a conversion – an important consideration for those with growing families.
What you do with a house extension from our builders is entirely up to you. Single-storey extensions at ground level help you to create a dream kitchen, a much-needed utility room or extra dining space. Double-storey house extensions in Farnborough give homeowners practical living or workspace downstairs, with the benefit of an added bedroom upstairs.
More often than not, our builders work on new builds for commercial clients in the nearby Farnborough area. We do build for individuals as well, particularly those building their own portfolios, but the typical client for this type of work is a developer or a larger company of builders. They assign us to new builds because Camberford Construction Ltd employs personnel across multiple trades, including roofers, plumbers, electricians and engineers.
Very few builders in Farnborough, especially those on the smaller end of the scale, have the scope required to work on multiple new builds. Because we deliver a structured project management service from conception through to completion, our commercial clients have the freedom to pursue other interests such as marketing other properties in their portfolios.
