Extending your home is a big project. Second to actually buying your home, it’s going to be one of the biggest financial commitments you’re likely to make so the last thing you want is to find yourself becoming another home project horror story.

At Resi, we’re transparent with our fees, so you won’t have any hidden charges eating at your budget. Yet what about the rest of your build?
