Churston Builders – The Torbay and South Hams Builder. Two Storey Extension in Waterside Road, Paignton
Churston Builders completed this sympathetic two-storey extension in early 2023.
If you live in a period property then it is essential that any external works carried out are sympathetic to the aged appearance of the existing property. The owners of this this stylish property in Waterside Road, Paignton, required more space and had an architect design a two-storey extension that would match seamlessly with the style of the existing property. Churston Builders’ task was to build the extension and match in the exterior finishes to ensure there was no clear line between the old and new. As the roof was well weathered the main challenge was to reuse as much of the original roof tile as possible for the front elevation. There were plenty of tiles available from the existing large elevation on the westerly side of the property so all of this had to be carefully stripped and stored.
As you can see from the images below the finished build is almost indistinguishable from the original property. The only real evidence is the rear roof which had been partially replaced in the recent past so the small amount of new tile would be weathered in fiarly quickly and most importantly not visible on the front elevation. The interior finish was completed to Churston Builders usual top quality standard too!
