Is your family home feeling increasingly cramped with each passing year? Are you working from home more often and need a dedicated office space? As many as 70% of UK homeowners aren’t happy with the size of their property, so if you feel like you’re in an endless struggle for storage and space, you’re not alone. Even if you’ve filled every shelf, cupboard and corner, moving to a bigger house, and assuming a larger mortgage, may be a non-starter. In these cases, property extensions from L Vella & Sons make the ideal solution.
Based in Dartford, our builders cover the surrounding Kent and London areas. As well as our hometown, our key service areas include Catford, Gravesend, Lewisham and Sidcup, to name a few.
We work closely with you from the outset to ensure your extension runs to a smooth conclusion on time and within budget. Our full service includes design and planning, specification, procurement and the physical build itself.
You can rest assured, we prioritise clear, honest communication, and your satisfaction, during every phase of your project.

L Vella & Sons covers all the trades necessary to deliver a stylish, comfortable and safe extension. This includes electrical, plumbing and heating work by professionals with NICEIC certification and Gas Safe registration.
For your peace of mind, our home extensions fully comply with all relevant building regulations.
With a trading history stretching back to 1981, we understand how much thought you put into your choice of builders. An extension is a significant investment. It is a huge commitment, the result of which will change the way you use and view your home for many years to come. With our team’s decades of experience, your home addition is in safe hands from the outset.
From the risk assessment to the final Building Control sign-off, L Vella & Sons makes your experience as simple and stress-free as possible.
Your new home extension can take any form you want it to. Of course, there will always be the potential for feasibility issues. However, we try to eradicate these at the earliest point, meaning minimal compromise for your vision.
In the preliminary stage, it’s also important to clarify exactly what type of room – or rooms – you want our builders to create. This not only ensures clearly defined expectations for all parties, but it also allows us to optimise your space with your goals in mind. For example, a home office will benefit from more electrical sockets than a workout studio.
Most single-storey property extensions fall under the classification of a ‘permitted development’. If your proposed design meets the limitations set out in your permitted development rights, you don’t need to apply for planning permission. Conversely, double-storey structures invariably need prior approval from the local authority.
No matter the scale of your project, our Dartford-based builders can deliver spaces of any kind. Some of the most popular options include:
Whether you’re in Catford, Gravesend, Lewisham, Sidcup or any of the neighbouring areas, you can rely on us for impeccable results with minimal disruption.
For an alternative option to creating new living space, we also excel at loft conversions.
