House Extension Types
House Extensions are one of the most popular ways of creating Extra Room in your house. There are different types of extension, the following are most common...
Single Extensions can be constructed to the front, sides or rear of your house to help create more ground floor internal space, they are often referred to as Kitchen Extensions. A single storey extension can sometimes fall into the permitted development planning category so may not need full planning permission. The estimated time for this sort of project would be 6 – 8 weeks. The traditional extension is normally constructed in brick or block finished in a rendered finish with a flat or sloping tiled roof. The contemporary extension is constructed with a modern feel complimented with steel and glass.
These can also be constructed to the front, sides or rear of your house to help create more ground and first floor internal space. A double storey extension will always fall into the category of full planning permission. The estimated time for this sort of project would be 8 - 12 weeks. The traditional extension is normally constructed in brick or block finished in a rendered finish with a flat or sloping tiled roof, which would link into the existing house. The contemporary extension is constructed with a modern feel complimented with steel and glass.
This is where a side extension, single or double, extends through to the rear of your home and continues into a rear extension single or double. A combined extension will always fall into the category of full planning permission. The estimated time for this sort of project would be 8 - 12 weeks. The traditional extension is normally constructed in brick or block finished in a rendered finish with a flat or sloping tiled roof, which would link into the existing house. There can be a contemporary design incorporated within this extension but would be generally based more on a traditional construction.
