Builders Top Tips when Planning for a New Extension – Watford

Posted on by admin

An extension is without a doubt the best thing you could ever do for your home – in its essence creating a whole new house without even having to move out (saving a whole lot of money in the process too) and of course adding a significant amount of value onto it if you are ever considering moving out. But before you end up with the dream extension, there are many things to consider and who better to gain top tips from than the leading builders in Watford – J Pellow & Son?

Having carried out extension after extension and all to the same standards, whether it is single or double storey, we at J Pellow & Son know everything homeowners should think about before going ahead with an extension, so read on to find out some things you really should be thinking about.

Planning Permission

Of course the first thing that needs to happen before any building work begins or you even get the image in your mind about what this extension will look like, is getting planning permission from your local council. Without this no extension work can go ahead, but how do you actually gain planning permission? Rest assured as we at J Pellow & Son can help you through it and provide all the advice you need – just call us today on 01923 661 911.

Have you got the Size Right?

You don’t want to end up with an extension that is too small as you won’t be able to use it how you are hoping to, and this will only happen if you have got the size wrong. Once again, this will be advised on by your builder; however it is always worth remembering that the perimeter lined out factors in the walls and insulation – meaning that the inner-space will be reduced.

Use the Right, Reliable Builder

Finally, your extension will only come to fruition if it has been built properly, and luckily enough you are in the right place. Being the leading builders here in Harrow, you can rely on our work and happy customers all across the area are a testament to that fact.
