Considering a house extension?
Thinking of extending your home?
One of the first questions our clients asks us is:
“What type of extensions do you do?”
Providing extensions in Fife is no problem for us at all, but what type of extensions can we offer our customers?
Extending your home is becoming an increasingly popular choice with our customers for the reason that our customers just want more space.
Home extensions can take many forms and can be used for any purpose that the client wishes, from a simple porch extension or conservatory to a complex multi-storey extension used for a garage, utility, kitchen, living & dining room.
This blog post will outline the different types of extensions that we can offer you.
Extending Your Home: House Extensions In Fife
Porch Extension Fife
Porches are small extensions usually built on the side of your house.
They are generally simple structures of only brick dwarf walls and columns, windows and a door. They can be plastered or left as bare brick and generally have a light and possibly an electric socket.
Is planning permission needed?
Most porches do not require planning permission – but how?
As long as the porch is separated from the house by an internal door, and it is not heated, then it will not require building regulations certification.
Garage Extension Fife
Garage extensions are something that our customers are asking us quite often and of course, we can offer this to our customers.
It could just be the brilliant new room you have been waiting for. Most people use their garage for storage areas that quickly become full of old paint pots, bikes, lawn mowers and all types of junk.
Loft Conversions Fife
We can convert every conceivable type of loft space, from traditional brick built homes, to new timber frame construction homes.
Whether basic or ultimate storage rooms or full architecturally designed conversions. There is no type of loft space we’ve not converted.
Fairly simple structures are usually made of UPVC, although they can be timber or aluminium.
If you have any requirements for conservatories then give us a call today.
Single Storey Extension Fife
Single storey extensions are simply an extension built onto a part of the house whereby one side (or more) of the extension adjoins the property and there is only the ground floor plus any basement built to it.
What do you need to think about for single storey extensions?
Main considerations here must be the size of the extension and its impact upon neighbours, how the roof will work with the existing building and specifically whether the same type of roof covering of the existing property can be used on the extension.
Two Storey Extension/Multi Storey Extension Fife
A multi-storey extension can, like a single storey extension, also be built to any part of the existing building.
However, with an extension of more than one storey, the possibility of nuisance towards neighbours is much stronger.
