On 1st October 2008, and again more recently, the planning regulations in London were simplified and as a result the number of householders opting to extend their properties vastly increased with some households no longer requiring planning permission. We can help establish the relevant requirements for your property, as it may be possible to do your extension under Permitted Development regulations. If you would like to add extra living space, increase the value of your home and avoid the stress of moving, we offer extensions that are of the highest quality in terms of design, craftsmanship and sustainability. Our work will not only give you additional space but will enhance both your property and your lifestyle.
what are the different types of extensions?
There are four main types of extension and the type we recommend for your property will depend on a number of factors – property style, available space, conservation area, local planning regulations, your budget and needs.
A rear extension is where only the end of the property is extended. This often gives a room approximately 5m x 3m (STPP) and can have huge roof windows to allow maximum natural light into the newly created space.Rear extensions can have either a:
- Monopitch roof
- Centre pitched roof
- Flat roof
