Here’s just a small selection of the types of extensions you could opt for:
Side Return Extension:
A side return extension spans the length of the side elevation. This is often a relatively small extension but it can have a great impact on the look and feel of your property.
This is a side return extension combined with a rear extension. The wrap around extension can provide maximum space and dramatically alter the feeling and shape of your home.
As the name suggests, rear extensions extend out from the back of your property and are typically carried out on properties where there is no side return option or on detached properties. Most commonly used to extend the size of your kitchen and can usually include a dining or living space in addition.
Double Storey Extensions:
Two storey home extensions cost more than other varieties as the building work would need to be completed on two levels. However this type of extension can dramatically change the value of your property as usually at least one more bedroom is added whilst the living space on the ground floor is considerably increased.

A new extension is a great way of adding extra space and value to your home. At the same time many of our clients decide to do refurbishments to other rooms in their home such as bathrooms living rooms and kitchens. The advantage of this is having one contractor to take the responsibility for the whole project which ultimately will save you time and money.
*Your responsibilitiesWith all building work, the owner of the property (or land) in question is ultimately responsible for complying with the relevant planning rules and building regulations (regardless of the need to apply for planning permission and/or building regulations approval or not). Therefore, failure to comply with the relevant rules will result in the owner being liable for any remedial action (which could go as far as demolition and/or restoration). The general advice is to always discuss your proposals with the relevant Local Planning Authority and Building Control Service before starting work.
