How to start a House Extension?
Many of us dream of having a bigger, brighter, nicer space. How does one go about that goal?
Trust professional builders. You can contact us not only for actual assistance but also earlier, when in the planning stage. We can recommend an architect and/or a structural engineer suitable for your project. He will help you to understand the structure of your house and to put your ideas onto paper.
You do not need to know everything about building yourself. The role of architects and engineers is to take care of every aspect of creating an extension for you. This includes design, materials, finishes and more!
What do you need before starting a House Extension?
Once you are happy with the design, it is time to apply for the building warrant. An architect will contact your local Council office. Building Regulations set standards for the design and construction of buildings to ensure they are structurally sound and durable.
After that’s taken care of, you need to look for builders. We work mostly on recommendations, and we advise you also look for these. The most important aspect of cooperation with builders is mutual trust.

Depending on it, you may need to help of joiners, tillers, bathroom fitters, plasterers or painters and decorators.
