3 Eco-Friendly Benefits of a DIY Home Extension Kit

When planning for a home extension, the environmental impact is often something that is overlooked. However, it can be more significant than you might think.

Just like any construction project, building a new extension takes a toll on our planet. The size of the impact depends on various factors, including where materials are sourced from, the amount of waste produced, and the energy efficiency of the features installed.

Luckily, there’s a fantastic solution to reduce the environmental impact of expanding your home: DIY extension kits! These innovative kits are delivered right to your doorstep, complete with all the materials you need to complete the build. Even if you have no prior experience, our home extension kits include step-by-step instructions that make the building process a breeze.

On top of being significantly more affordable than a traditional extension, our DIY extension kits offer a range of eco-friendly advantages. Let’s explore these key benefits below!

1. Minimised waste

DIY kit manufacturers take a “made to measure” approach, rather than a generic “prêt-à-porter” one. Each kit is made bespoke to your home, based on your needs, preferences, and desired results. This means you get the perfect number of resources required to complete your project – no more, no less.

Not only does this provide you with everything you need, but it also significantly reduces the amount of material left over once construction is complete. This cuts down on waste, preserves valuable materials, and eliminates the carbon emissions of transporting surplus materials to landfill. Plus, it saves you a lot of money along the way!

At Trade Price Warming Living, we take pride in offering custom-manufactured DIY home extension kits tailored specifically to your needs. Our dedicated team will collaborate closely with you to create a kit that transforms your vision into reality, regardless of the dimensions, layout, or style you desire. They’re good for your home, and good for the planet, too!

2. Reduced carbon footprint

In traditional construction processes, materials are typically sourced from multiple locations, resulting in increased transportation needs. This transportation involves a higher number of lorries on the road, leading to significant greenhouse gas emissions, particularly for larger extensions.

In contrast, DIY home extension kits streamline the process by sourcing all materials from a single provider. Far fewer vehicles are needed to transport it all, reducing carbon emissions whilst making sure everything gets to you when you need it.

At Trade Price Warming Living, we supply all our materials directly from our factory in Somerset. Our delivery services are limited to the South of England, which significantly lowers our carbon footprint compared to larger companies. This streamlined approach allows us to deliver your extension kit right to your doorstep within just 3 weeks!

3. Made from sustainable materials

Most traditional extensions are made from strong and sturdy materials, but they aren’t always the most sustainable. Our home extension kits, on the other hand, incorporate eco-friendly materials like wood shavings and environmentally responsible insulation options.

Trade Price Warming Living’s extension frames are crafted from timber, a natural insulator, and come equipped with innovative Warmer Roof technology. Not only are they exceptionally thermally efficient, but they also require less heat to keep them warm during the winter.

This improves your home’s energy efficiency, saving you money on your heating bills whilst reducing carbon emissions. Even better? We source all our timber from responsible companies with sustainable forest regeneration programs, minimising our environmental impact even further!
