Renovations & Extensions

Every Coldwells renovation and extension project is carefully considered.

Our award-winning craftsmen are trained in a broad range of restoration skills and have experience working on numerous period properties, including traditional Scottish cottages, farmhouses, steadings, byres and bothies.

Commendations from organisations such as the Federation of Master Builders have been a proud endorsement of our team’s detail-orientated approach and uncompromising standards.

Coldwells was crowned the national winner at the 2021 UK Master Builder Awards for our ‘Cornival' project - the renovation and extension of an 1860s traditional cottage and byre in the Aberdeenshire countryside.

We have undertaken a wide range of extension projects, including single and multi-floor additions.

We can match an extension to complement the existing home or distinguish the addition using contemporary materials such as structural glazing, zinc, timber cladding, smooth render or weathered steel cladding.

Our Renovations and Extensions Service

  • One Project Manager

    Coldwells is a small family business, which means your one point of contact will be company director, Ross Booth. You will be given Ross’s personal mobile number and he will be available to you throughout the construction phase and even after you move in.

  • 24/7 Access

    You will receive a login to our online client portal and app which allows you to track progress of your renovation and/or extension in real time. You can view daily job schedules, budget tracking, progress photos, site reports, invoices and make selections to customise your new home. Whether you’re at home, at work, or on holiday, all the information relating to your build will be at your fingertips.

  • Organised Scheduling

    At Coldwells, we have established a system we call, ‘construction slots.’ We decide at the beginning of the year how many projects our team can realistically build while maintaining our high standards, and then spread out the start dates evenly. This prioritises the quality of our builds by limiting the number we have under construction at one time and is part of how we can offer realistic timelines to our clients.

  • Cost Visibility

    We establish a realistic budget at your first consultation and then carefully tailor the works to suit your budget and timelines.  

  • Award-Winning Construction

    Our award-winning team of detail orientated craftsmen are the lifeblood of our company. Through training and promoting from within, and our thriving apprenticeship programme, Coldwells values and high standards are passed from one generation to the next.

  • No Stress

    With Coldwells acting as principal contractors, you have one company accountable for coordinating, managing and monitoring the entire construction phase. That’s just part of why our clients love the process and are gracious with referrals.

  • Personalised Aftercare

    We believe that project handover, doesn't mean that it's over. We will follow up at one, three, six and twelve months to ensure your home is defect free and put right any snagging issues. We’ll remain as your team, your support and your partner for as long as it suits your needs.
