Buying a house is the single biggest investment that most people will ever make in their lives but, when the time comes to move on, it’s nice to make a profit if possible. Whether you live in a period property or one of the area’s many new builds, there are several ways to increase the resale value of a Worthing home. Don’t worry if you lack the budget for major building work, like property extensions or loft conversions,
Even cosmetic changes, like redecorating, make a big difference.
Based in Worthing itself, Langhams Construction Ltd is a family-run company of builders with over 30 years of trade experience. We specialise in building work and construction, taking on new builds, property extensions, loft conversions, refurbishments and renovations across the whole of West Sussex.
From carpentry and joinery, to electrical, plumbing and heating work, we utilise a diverse range of skills to maximise your initial investment on new builds and period properties alike.
Adding an extension to your home in Worthing is the best way to increase your living space. An extra bedroom can really push your house into the next price bracket for the local area. You can use property extensions in any way you wish. Open-plan kitchen and diner combinations, conservatories and sunrooms all have appealing individual attributes for potential buyers.
Our builders can undertake the following extension styles, all of which can add value to your home:
Langhams Construction Ltd ensures all building work on property extensions, either for new builds or period homes, complies with current Building Regulations for the United Kingdom.
This is the most cost-effective method of gaining additional living space for homes in Worthing because the building work doesn’t use up valuable outdoor space. Whether you choose dormer, mansard, hip-to-gable or loft conversions, or even rooflight installations, our builders can work to your specification and create an extra bedroom, bathroom, office or hobby room that will add significant value to your home.
Loft conversions can be far less disruptive than property extensions and usually work out cheaper. On some projects, most of the work takes place through the roof so we rarely need to enter your home until the very last stages of the job.
Some building work, like electrical rewiring or central heating upgrades, can increase the energy efficiency of homes in the Worthing area. Not only is this desirable for future homeowners, but it can also help you achieve your asking price. This is because potential buyers won’t need to factor in the cost of extra projects after making a purchase. Installing a top-of-the-range kitchen or bathroom can make a home more appealing to buyers. Our builders take on this kind of building work too, thus saving you time and money on hiring in other contractors.
We also undertake all forms of decorating, including plastering, painting and laying new flooring.
Potential buyers are likely to barter down, or ignore, tired and outdated homes in Worthing. Our builders can restore period properties to their original charm by taking on cosmetic building work. With a little care and attention, we can distract attention from new builds to make an older home look more appealing. Exterior renovation work, of course, can have an amazing effect on kerb appeal and a potential buyer’s viewpoint.
From brickwork and mortar repointing, to rendering and roofing repairs, we take care of everything and breathe new life into your home so that you can reap the financial rewards later.
