Reasons You May Want an Extension

Nearly everyone considers making changes to their home at some point in their lives. These days it is becoming nearly impossible to move in to your dream home and it is down the line when extensions and renovations become the most viable option. Moreover, it is often cheaper to buy a smaller house and to renovate it at a later date as you see fit.

There are many reasons why you may be considering renovating your home and we will work with you to ensure the job is completed to your specific requirements. Adding an extension is a great way of modernising a home. It is far easier to extend the home you live in, rather than move to a bigger home.

As a family grows a house can become cramped and adding an extra room helps to alleviate this issue, or maybe a grandparent is moving in to the family home? You may even want an extra room just to have your own space to relax in after a hard day. If you ever intend to sell your home, renovations have a great return on investment, and you will recoup the majority of the initial outlay on resale.

  • Laide & O’ Brien were contracted by Bushmount Nursing Home in Clonakilty Co. Cork to build two major extensions between 2011 and 2015.

    The first extension was an 18 bed 5000 sq. ft extension and the second build was a 26 bed 7000 sq. ft extension. They were complex and complicated builds as they had to be completed without affecting the operation of the existing nursing home.

    Both projects came in on time, to specification, and on budget and the quality of the workmanship was first class. What impressed me most was John and Cillian’s commitment to putting the client first and ensuring the residents of our nursing home were not disturbed during the build. Laide & O’ Brien are very much customer focused and they at all times strived to ensure that my requirements and objectives ...More

  • Laide & O'Brien built our house in Clonakilty in 2015. We went to tender with 5 builders and they provided the most detailed and transparent bid as well as a very competitive price. It was clear from the start that the standard of build was going to be exceptional and during the build we learned that their standards were even higher than our own.

    A build is a complex process with many parties involved, however we engaged Laide & O'Brien to manage all subcontractors and they made it look easy. They never approached us with a problem, they simply informed us when issues arose and advised us of the solution they had already prepared. As we both work full time and have two small kids this was a huge bonus for us. Working with them was an absolute pleasure and we knew our dream home was in g...More
