What to Expect During Property Extensions

No two homes are the same. Likewise, each extension project we undertake differs from the last. This is why we tailor our approach to the specific needs of your project. This ensures we cater to the unique aspects at play, such as the type of home you have, its size, access to the property, neighbouring houses, the available space in the garden and your budget. We also need to consider whether you live in a conservation area.

In addition to the nature of your home and wider premises, we design a bespoke service around your lifestyle requirements, design aspirations and overall expectations. Whether you’re in Maidstone, Canterbury, Medway or the wider Kent area, this approach allows us to produce truly fit-for-purpose results.

During the pre-construction phase, we offer permitted development advice. In short, as a homeowner, you have certain permitted development rights. If your proposed extension falls inside the stated limits, you don’t need to apply for planning permission.

Generally speaking, most single-storey property extensions that our builders construct meet permitted development criteria. Double-storey additions, however, almost always need prior approval before building work begins.

Our team recognises that the construction stage of your extension takes place in and around your home. You can rest assured, we will treat your property with the care and respect we would expect of builders in our own. This includes maintaining a clean and tidy working environment throughout.

We liaise with your local authority, be it in Maidstone, Canterbury, Medway or any other location, to schedule Building Control inspections and sign-offs at the required stages of construction. As a result, our property extensions don’t only meet the highest standards of workmanship, they are also lawful and fully comply with all relevant building regulations.
