Frequently Asked Questions

Can Resi produce a variety of options for my extension?

Yes!

The majority of our clients want to see the simplest, quickest and most cost effective solution for creating more space in their chosen area of their home. However, we are also able to produce what we refer to as the 'art of the possible'; taking you from simple to grand and everything in between. 

Just mention that you would like us to think boldly about your space when you discuss your extension during your initial consultation. 


What information do I need to provide for you to start work on my extension?


As soon as you sign up up to Resi we will walk you through our easy-to-follow process.

We’ll ask you for:

  1. Your name, contact details and the address of the property in question
  2. Basic information about the property
  3. Your preferred style, estimated budget and a brief description of what you are looking to achieve
  4. Your expectations on timings
  5. Uploads of floor plans, inspiration or existing photos of the property (all optional)


We will always let you know if we require further information before we start drawing.

How is it possible to deliver your service without visiting my home?


If you have bought or sold in the last 20 years, your floor plans will probably be available from a variety of public sources. Working with these, photos of your home, and a host of other proprietary resources, we can accurately complete 90% of designs remotely. Sometimes we may ask you to cross check measurements using a tape measure. When this is necessary we will guide you through this exercise.

All of the case studies that can be viewed on our website have been produced without the need for a site visit.

For the 10% of homes where a site visit is necessary, our trusted team of surveyors will come to your home and complete a measured survey. This will incur an additional fee and will be discussed with you during the consultation.

Can I trust you? Are you qualified?

Although we’re online, we’re not robots, and you’ll be speaking with us directly from the moment you make an enquiry. We also offer an onsite measured survey/consultation service, if this is preferred. 

We’ve got qualifications, expertise and a long track record of happy customers. We have a number of ARB and RIBA registered architects working at Resi, along with architectural technologists and surveyors, so your project is in safe hands.

Collectively we've completed over 750 residential extensions and renovations across the whole of the UK. You can learn more about our founders here.


Why don't I just use a local architect?

There are many ways in which Resi stands out from the crowd, especially when compared to your standard local architect. Here’s just some of the ways we’re a cut above the rest…

Team size

Many local architectural firms are made up of just one or two designers, meaning they’re often at risk of spiralling work loads, should one project run into any trouble. This means you’re own home could be subject to delays and missed deadlines.

At Resi, we have over twenty designers, surveyors, and technicians on board to help make sure you get the personal care you need. You’re assigned designer also then enjoys having a supportive team by their side, meaning you benefit from the experience only dozens of experts can provide.

Experience

When it comes to your home, you want someone who has been there and done that. This means hiring an architect with a large body of previous work. While local architects typical only take on around 10-20 projects a year, at Resi we’ve handled over 900 in less than 2 years. So we know the ins and outs of planning, and Britain’s unique housing stock.

Communication

One of the things we hear most from prospective customers is 'if I go with a local architect, they’ll be there for me more'.

And it’s true, your local architect will come to your house and meet over tea in your kitchen. But what comes after that? There will be missed calls, weeks in between your next meeting, and when a new customer pops up, their attention can quickly become divided.

Our online dashboard allows our customers to communicate with their architect whenever they need us - thanks to our messaging feature. Not only that, we’re able to skip delayed meetings and share results in record time by walking customers through their projects with our screen-share. Though we are able to meet our customers face to face, our online platform means those customers who want a faster service can start seeing results the moment they click ‘confirm’.

Why would I use Resi?

We recommend using our services if you’re looking at any home design projects, such as: conversion, extension, or new build.

Having an architect on board has a number of benefits.

  1. Better design
  2. Better utilisation of space
  3. Increased chance of planning approval
  4. More protection from bad practises

To name just a few!

Every year thousands of homeowners face disaster from the unregulated practises, misleading advice, hidden third parties, and cowboy contractors. Only architects, held to a strict code of practise, can provide great, safe design. Unfortunately, many people are put off from architects because of its elitist reputation, confusing processes, and endless jargon.

At Resi, we keep things simple. Our transparent prices mean you’re never sucker punched by hidden fees, while our dashboard keeps you in complete control of your project throughout. You get all this while still getting the great expertise only a team of architects can bring to a project.

What does Resi offer?

Resi brings together all the architectural services you’ll need to get ready to build.

These include…

  1. Measured surveys
  2. Home design
  3. 3D models and interactive walkthroughs
  4. Planning submission
  5. Party wall surveys
  6. Structural engineering
  7. Building regulations

Plus our connect service will put you in touch with the best local contractors and suppliers in your area, so you can move into the construction phase in a safe pair of hands.

We’re the perfect starting point for any homeowner looking to dramatically transform their property. Taking you step by step through all the nitty gritty of planning, while still allowing you the freedom to design a space perfectly suited to your home’s needs.
