Do you feel like you are outgrowing your current home but aren’t quite ready to leave it? If so, it’s worth having a conversation with one of the best extension builders Melbourne has to offer. Here at Bray Constructions, we are custom builders, allowing you to design and construct the home of your dreams.

But, before you start researching extension companies in Melbourne, let’s take a closer look at the benefits, types, and considerations for home extensions.

Benefits of a Home Extension

Deciding on home extensions and renovations comes with many benefits for homeowners. That’s why with the help of Bray Constructions, you can make the most out of your current home by choosing to move forward with home extensions.

But don’t just take our word for it. Here are a few of the primary advantages of building home extensions with Bray Constructions.

1. Maintaining Your Home’s Original Character

One of the main reasons that homeowners decide to move forward with home extensions is because they genuinely love the original character of their home but are at their wits end with its layout. With Bray Constructions home extensions, you can preserve the original features while adding new solutions that work for you and your family.

2. Controlling the Process
In the world of home extensions, it’s not always the easiest thing to come by quality builders. Thankfully, with Bray Constructions, you never have to worry about your home improvement projects. Our team has over 100 years of combined service, ensuring your home extensions stay on time, on track, and on budget.
3. Adding the Personal Touch
Unleash your personality on your home through custom builder home extensions with Bray Constructions. You’ll have the ability to decide on every last detail, from the design style to the number of bedrooms. The home extension process can be addictive, exciting, and deeply exhilarating for homeowners looking to add their personal touch.
4. Saving on Costs Upfront
A new build or buying a bigger house is not always the most cost-effective solution when you need more space. A home extension will help you save on relocation expenses, such as stamp duty, moving costs, legal bills, and real estate fees. Working with the home extension experts at Bray Constructions will help keep costs down.
5. Eliminating Stress and Fuss
Rather than dealing with the fuss of searching for a new property, home extensions allow you to improve upon the house you’re already in. Often, this means less stress, effort, and cost on your end. Disruption is kept to a minimum with Bray Constructions while building work is underway on your home extension, and timelines are held tight.
6. Enjoying an Improved Lifestyle
The transformation a home extension can bring to a house will be greatly appreciated by anyone who has lived in its impractical layout. Enormous lifestyle benefits can come from a home that has been given a fresh lease on life. The expert team at Bray Constructions is always sure to bring greater enjoyment to families through our custom home extensions.
7. Adding Value to Your Home
One of your greatest assets is your family home. An excellent way to add value to this asset, money well spent, is through home extensions and renovations. Well-designed and constructed home extensions by Bray Constructions will undoubtedly increase the value of your home, whether you’re adding a first or second-story extension.

Types of Home Extensions

It’s important to understand that there are two different types of home extensions. At Bray Constructions, we offer homeowners the option to extend up (adding a second floor) or out (into the back or front yard).

Extending Out (Back or Front Yard)

If you love your neighbourhood but find that your home no longer has the space your family needs, adding a single-story extension is a great option. Rather than going through the hassle of finding a larger home, consider your options in extending the house into your front or back yard.

Extending Up (Second Floor)

In Melbourne, especially, a second-floor might be an excellent option. The city's inner suburbs have small blocks that limit your ability to expand outward. Bray Constructions allows you to build up to add to your home’s floor plan without taking away space in your already minimal yards.
