  • August 12, 2021


When you are getting your home either renovated or extended, then instead of taking help from the new build contractors, you should consult the specialised experts like the house extension professionals or the renovators (remodelling specialists).

None of the aforementioned tasks is easy to get accomplished. A lot of things have to be kept in mind. Our professionals aim at carrying through the project with the ultimate perfection. For that, they work per the checklist which has the following credentials:


Planning Permission

This is the most critical factor which every builder or contractor considers before commencing the work. As per your specifications which are related to the dimensions and the designs, the contractor will decide whether you will need to have the planning permission for the same or not. If you will need it, then he will tell you the correct way to seek the same.

Compliance with the regulations

Here you should get acquainted with the point which says,” No matter, whether you are mandated to take the planning permission or not, your renovation or the extension will be under compulsion to comply with the building regulations.” Also, there will be a need for the submission of the birth control application. No doubt, your contractor will be responsible for making all this for you, but still, you need to check everything.


You are required to make the building insurance provider aware of what construction work you are desiring to take place at your place, it will ensure that you are being covered.

Do not forget to talk to your neighbours

Whenever construction work will commence at your place, your neighbours will be the ones who will be considerably affected by this. So keeping in mind the courtesy, you are required to make them informed of what kind of disturbance they will be facing in the future.

Also, besides courtesy, if you are living in either a terraced or semi-detached property, then before taking any construction work into account, you and your neighbour need to sign an agreement which is known as the “party wall”.

Initial Budget

The property owner needs to have a clear idea of the initial budget. While considering the details of the budget, you have to make sure that you are investing in something which promises you high quality.

Your architect

You might be a great planner and it is accepted that none other than you knows how to make the best use of the property and plan for the specifications. Despite all those facts, you still have to accept that you cannot match the professional skills and the experience which the architects are having. So hiring an architect will come out to be the best option for you.
