Also, each home extension’ height restrictions are adhered with. For example, a single storey extension cannot be higher than 4m to the ridge and the eaves. In the case of double storey extensions it may be closer to 7m to the rear boundary. Planning permission is required if the extension covers more than half of the land around the original house. We ensure that all the home extensions are built of same materials as the original house.
Significantly, we ensure that all the building regulation certifications are met totally. All our home extension works are carried out by certified and registered professionals only. In some instances, we will liaise with the local Building Control Officers for certification. We will guide you on certain mandatory things that need to be addressed before a home extension project starts.
