Renovation & Extensions

Do you currently live in a property you love but find it no longer meets your needs? A renovation or extension will allow you to remain in the property you love and adapt it to your needs. For example, you may need a property extension if you are welcoming a new family member into your home or would like to start working from a home office.

Similarly, if you love the location of the property but want to make the structure and interior of the property unique to your needs and taste, you may wish to consider a renovation project. No matter what your renovation or extension needs and desires are, we can accommodate them. For example, we can help you to build a home that is energy-efficient and as eco-friendly as possible.

  • Peace of mind with a 25-year structural guarantee.
  • Clear communication with regular project updates.
  • Reliability – we turn up when we say we will.
  • On time and budget, with no hidden extras or surprises
  • Now that’s Unique!

Client Stories

Don’t just take our words for it, hear what our home owners have to say about us

From the moment we met Jason and Troy we felt extremely comfortable. I would have to say I have never dealt with a more reliable building company. All the staff at Unique Custom Builders went above and beyond of what could have ever been expected. Extremely professional, knowledgeable and their workmanship is second to none.

Throughout the entire project we were always kept informed and felt very much a part of the process. The entire Unique team are very approachable and no question is ever too much to ask.

We cannot thank Unique Custom Builders enough for building our dream home! We are always very proud to say who built it and we would definitely recommend the Unique team to anyone thinking of building
