Looking to Extend?

Are you looking to extend your property? There are many benefits to adding an extension to your existing home. These include:

·        No need to relocate

Many people who grow their family feel they need more space and therefore need to move to a house with larger capacity which isn’t always the case. If you have permission to do so, you can extend your existing space in the house you love.

·        Your home will gain value
Adding more space to your house has the potential to significantly increase the value of the property.

·        Add the space you need

You will be able to add the exact amount of space you need – you can create a spare bedroom, or larger kitchen so the family can all sit down together.

·        You are the designer

As with choosing the amount of space you need, the design of the extension is up to you. Maybe there is a view from your home you want to make the most of and you can create a balcony that overlooks it.

·        Increased privacy

An extension will often give you more privacy than your standard home – you won’t need to worry about your neighbours being able to see inside.

·        Reduced noise levels

An extension can act as a barrier between you and all of the unwanted noises that come from the outside world. This is a particularly good benefit if you live in a noisy area.

·        Greater enjoyment of your home
Having more space to enjoy for whichever reason you choose, storage, more living space or an extra bedroom will mean you can really make the most of your home.

In some cases (not all), homeowners and property developers will need to go through a Planning Permission process before making certain changes to or building a new construction on their property. The reason for planning permission is to ensure that any new developments observe planning policies, regulations, and other relevant considerations within the community.

It is essential to speak with your local planning authority early on in your planning, and of course a good architect can help you through the minefield! Rules and regulations can of course differ between regions so you must check with your authority for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
