How Long Does it Take to Build an Extension?
This all depends on what work is involved and at what scale. When providing you with a quote, we will provide you with an indication of how long your project is likely to take and how soon we will be able to start the work.
Do I Need to Get Involved With Managing a Project?
You don't need to get involved with managing your extension or refurbishment project. However, our highly experienced project managers are happy to work closely with you or independently subject to your personal preferences.
Will I Need to Move Out During an Extension Build?
It's usually possible to remain living in your home, especially if your extension build is confined to a single area. Before we start work, we can help you formulate a plan around how we can keep the work elements out and the rest of your home free from dust.
Will My Property's Build Specification Be Maintained?
Yes, our team will always carry out work that complies with the build standard of your property. For example, if we are carrying out work on a BS 3632:2015 home, any refurbishment work will comply with the BS 3632: 2015 specification. If a property is built to an earlier British standard, then we will always ensure that any work we do exceeds that standard
Will I Need Planning Permission?
Depending on your requirements and the work that is going to be carried out, you might require planning permission, especially if your house is of listed status or located within a conservation area. There are several consent checks that need to be considered before work can start, including, planning permission, listed building consent or building regulations approval.
Do I Need to Inform My Insurance Provider About An Extension?
Yes, you will certainly need to inform them about a planned extension project. It's very important to keep your insurance provider updated as your home cover policy could become invalidated if they are not made aware of any structural changes to your property.
