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!

We always carry out detailed surveys to assess the full range of needs your project will require to carry it out to the highest possible standard. We don’t cut corners and we always finish the project to your satisfaction.
Our team includes talented joiners who craft beautiful internal structures from the highest quality timber. We can work to a range of styles, ensuring that new staircases or structures match the existing materials and styles.
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.
Depending on the work that we carry out we may need to erect scaffolding, but don’t worry; we will take care of all of the planning needed. We should emphasise that when we carry out this kind of project we are absolutely focussed on safety, and caring for you home. From carrying out safety briefings and following the correct safety procedures, to checking with you how to minimise disruption, we will make sure that all aspects of the project are carried out smoothly and safely.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We always make sure we put together a detailed contract and we want our clients to have maximum of input in this process. The contract means you can be sure that we will complete the project to your complete satisfaction. We can also work according to contracts that are provided by the client.
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.
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.
