Extension Specialists Folkestone - Reids Building and Carpentry


Adding an extension to your property can enable you to have more living space, without the stress of moving. You can be as creative as you want and we will work to provide you with dream vision. It gives you a chance to modernise your home, add your unique touch and have more space for whatever you require.

An extension also will increase the value of your property dramatically so if you do consider selling you’ll be able to demand a greater price. We are able to deliver a high quality finish on all of our projects.

Multi Storey Extensions

Multi storey extensions are great for adding a potentially huge amount of extra space to your property. If you love your current location and property but simply don’t have enough space, moving isn’t your only option. In many cases an extension can be more cost effective than moving houses due to all the other fees involved in moving such as estate agents and solicitors, not to mention all the stress involved in the moving process.

Single Storey Extensions

Single storey extensions could provide you with the additional space you are searching for without the expense of a multi storey extension or moving houses. We always ensure plenty of natural lighting floods the extension to help create the illusion of a larger living space.

We do this by recommending our clients install sky lights and bi-folding or patio doors which can also help you make more use of your garden area thanks to the easy access. We work to maximise the potential of your property and unlock the hidden space you may have been wasting previously.

We can also help you looking forward, if you think you may want to add a second storey above the extension in the future we can ensure that all foundations, steelworks and lintels are put in place to avoid higher costs in the future. We’ve worked on a variety of single storey extension projects, see some images of them below.
