House Extensions South Shields

Are you feeling walled in at your house? Do you long for more open space and light where the kitchen space streams naturally in to the dining room and garden? At DNA Home Improvements North East Ltd we can extend your property seamlessly. It’s all pretty practical and straight forward. We’ll be knocking down walls. And there’ll be noise and chaos for a short time. But following that you’ll be so happy you invested in the upgrade.

We enjoy working with structural engineers and architects to blend structural integrity with aesthetics and a dash of ergonomics. You’ll most likely require some Velux roof windows, rolled steel joists to strengthen some walls and widened windows areas. We’ll be matching the new brick with the old, the new floorboards or floors with the old, and making sure the electrics are hidden and fittings are consistent through the various areas of your house.

Work start on time, we keep our appointments, and we double-check prior to doing anything you might be billed for. Oftentimes this is about more than just customer satisfaction, and where Building Regulations apply at your venture, you can rely on us to make sure that these are met and passed too.

Open Plan Living

Open-plan living can be as easy as getting rid of the supporting wall between two reception rooms, or widening your home windows and doorways. So if you’re fed up with poky, dull reception rooms and you’re craving a Scandinavian smorgasbord of space and light, you don’t need to move house. You can enjoy it from the comfort of your own lounge when you contract DNA as your building contractor in South Shields.

Some careful thinking about light and space – and the strategic use of steel supports – could be all that’s needed. Of course you have gravity and architectural integrity to take into account, which is the reason we install rolled steel joists, or RSJs as they’re commonly known, to support the ceilings and upper walls.
