There are numerous reasons why someone can be looking to plan an extension to their home. Many of those might include the fact you are trying to find additional living area, you might be attempting to add value to your present home before the sale or you may be looking to change the appearance or performance of the property. These elements might vary but the construction process undertaken is fairly straightforward.
Applying for Planning Permission
It is generally the case that home owners are often concerned by the concept of extending their home for a number of reasons. The regulations and laws surrounding planning rules frequently confuse people, either in relation to the expense or how to comply with the regulations. Therefore it is essential that a contractor employed to carry out works is also able to provide reliable advice in the complex regulation process in acquiring planning permission and building regulation approval (some house extension projects falling under permitted development rights where planning permission is not required but will often still require building regulation approval).
Get Your Builder to Help
Reputable contractors will offer detailed information and support in obtaining all necessary planning and building regulation approvals. Contractors who offer comprehensive and detailed assistance will advise on the type of extension that would suit a homeowner, whether it be a loft conversion, kitchen extension or a single/double storey house extension, giving advice and guidance on the necessary requirements needed to meet with planning and building regulations.
An experienced contractor can also offer guidance on the way extensions and conversions are laid out, maximising usable floor space so that the homeowner does not sacrifice more than they are gaining from their extension or conversion. And of course at all times having an eye on the aesthetic and architectural appearance of any new extension.
Another important factor when considering a conversion or extension work is that the homeowner has sufficient facilities. Adding bedrooms to a home implies that there will be an increased requirement and necessity for additional bathrooms or shower rooms and many people also opt for a family bathroom together with an ensuite and a ground floor toilet adding further usability to their homes.
