Home Extensions and Kitchen Extensions
Home extensions are very popular in the modern London housing market, with many of these being kitchen extensions. The kitchen is arguably the most important room in the home, and creating a practical space that combines cooking, eating and relaxing isn’t something any family would say ‘no’ to, but it’s a delicate process that requires a company you can trust. At TIG Excell we have a long history of satisfied customers when it comes to our home extensions and kitchen extensions services.
There are several ways to scale-up space, from combining adjoining rooms or adding a conservatory to building a completely new room or digging out the basement. Extensions can add as much as 25% to the value of your property, so it’s a decision that few homeowners or property developers regret. We can extend your existing kitchen and provide that large, open kitchen you’ve always wanted. Kitchen extensions are a popular way of increasing the ground level living area of your home, particularly in Victorian or Edwardian terraced properties. By extending your home like this you can utilise unused side return or garden space to transform your property.
TIG Excell was established in 2010 but we have over 15 years of experience in the industry. We cater for all contracts, sub-contracts and one-off jobs. Based in Feltham we also work within the surrounding areas including Hounslow, Twickenham, Richmond, Kingston upon Thames and the whole of south and west London.
Much of our work is taken from developers or people who want to sell their homes. We have increased the value of many properties with our refurbishment and renovation services, and we offer free quotes so there’s no excuse not to get in touch if you live in south or west London!

Frequently Asked Questions
Planning permission can be a tricky area, and requirements change depending on the local authority you are dealing with. We can save you a lot of trouble by sorting this out ourselves and including this service in the final price, or you can have as much involvement in the process as you like. Our professional experience means we can offer plenty of advice on what’s realistic. We can do everything from the initial application, organising building control and visiting the site, or we are happy to take on projects where planning permission has already been granted.
← Can you help with planning permission?
This is not a requirement, but we can work from rough concepts or technical drawings that our client already has. Alternatively, we can work with an architect or structural engineer to turn your ideas into formal drawings.
← Do I need to have designs or architectural drawings already?
Absolutely. We take great care in ensuring your property is protected from damage from the time we start our work to the completion of the project. Before we begin we always ensure that our client’s floors, walls and furniture are all protected. If needed, we will set up a skip in a way that protects your property so that everything is well contained and easy to remove when our work is over.
← Do you clean up after yourselves?
We always make sure we stick to the agreed start and end times when it comes to working on construction projects. By turning up at the time that best suits you, and protecting your property at all times, we are contractors who work in a very considerate manner.
← How do you minimise disruption?
All TIG Excell staff are fully qualified and equipped with all the Personal Protection Equipment that is required to keep themselves and those around them safe. We take regular training courses in the best practices of Health & Safety in the construction workplace. We carry out comprehensive risk assessment and health and safety briefings on site.
← What do you do to ensure safety?
We make sure that every project is fully compliant with british building regulations. Our qualifications, experience and working practices make sure that your home is fully compliant and completely safe; from electrics and foundations to plumbing and ventilation. Where necessary, we make sure that the designs calculated by architects and structural engineers are correctly implemented to carry out your project to the highest standard.
← Do you meet building regulations?
Maybe. Depending on where you live and what you want to do, your project may be allowed as a “Permissible Development” which often allows around 3 to 4 meters of extension without planning permission. Get in touch, and we can give you practical advice on what’s best for your situation. If needed we can take care of drawing up technical plans and securing planning permission for you as part of our all inclusive service.
← Do I need planning permission for my extension?
Depending on what kind of extension you are looking for, you may need architectural drawings and calculations form a structural engineer. We can work with you to create these from qualified professionals, or we can take plans that you already have and turn them into reality.
← Do I need architectural drawings for an extension?
We can commit to a deadline as part of the contract. By carrying out all work in house we have the control to keep to a schedule while keeping quality as high as possible. We have completed kitchen extensions in three weeks, but normally this type of job would take roughly three to six weeks. Internal work can take longer.
← Can you commit to a deadline for completion of my extension?
As well as ensuring that an extension matches up with the materials and style of your existing property, we can do landscaping to make the garden match too lawn, fence, decking, paving.
← Can you make the garden match the extension?
We have a damp control surveyor who can show that what have built is damp proof. Ensuring that all of the work that we carry out is completed to the highest of standard, with the most suitable materials, is just one of the ways that we ensure that your extension is built to last.
← Can you prevent damp in a new extension?
We build it properly the first time, with all the necessary calculations from the structural engineer, and then ensure that the designs are followed accurately. We can ensure that the contract covers subsidence issues if you prefer.
← What do you do to reduce subsidence?
We can do everything needed to prepare for the project. This can involve preparing your garden or the surrounding area, protecting your home inside and out, as well as ensuring that we don’t damage any underground pipes or electrics.
← Can you prepare land and remove trees?
We can source a huge range of windows to meet the needs of your project. We can get hold of many kinds of wood, PVC and skylight windows from our relationships with a number of industry suppliers. Whether you need a specialised design to match the rest of your house, or if you’re looking for something different, just let us know.
