House Extensions Glasgow
More and more people are choosing to build an extension on a house as an affordable alternative to upgrading and buying a larger property. House extensions are a good way of gaining extra space without the hassle of moving home, and extensions are often used for a new kitchen, study area, office or play room.
Our House Extension Builders
James Conservatories' builders have over 12 years experience of building house extensions in Glasgow and throughout Scotland. When extending your house, it is important to choose a sympathetic style in order to preserve the appearance of your property. Our highly-skilled house extension builders are able to match the brickwork from your existing property so well that it can be difficult to spot where your house ends and the extension begins.
House Extension Design
James Conservatories will work with you to design and build the perfect extension to your house. All home extensions are built to your specifications, and are custom designed to fit the dimensions of your site.
We always use professional architects to draw up the designs for your extension, which helps both to ensure that the finished extension will look great, and that the work carried out will meet with the required building regulations.
We take particular care to make sure that the foundations of your extension meets or exceeds the required depth, in order to prevent any future problems from subsidence.
House Extension Planning Permission
Extending your house, like most other building alterations, can require planning permission. It is very important to make sure this is obtained correctly, as your house extension may need to be modified or even demolished if you failed to get the right planning permission. Incorrect planning permission can also cause problems at a later stage if you want to sell your property.
James Conservatories' team of builders are particularly experienced at building house extensions in and around Glasgow, and so we are very familiar with the various requirements on planning permission applications that are set by these local authorities. We can suggest what the best options are for your property extension, combining your ideas with our understanding of the planning requirements in your area. Using our knowledge we can often eliminate any planning problems that may occur before the final plans are drawn up and submitted.
Do I need planning permission?
The rules governing planning permission for house extensions in Scotland can be quite complicated, and often vary depending on your local council. As a guideline, some of the factors that need to be considered are the size and height of your proposed extension, the distance between the proposed extension and any public highway, the size of your proposed extension compared to the size of the existing property, whether the property has previously been extended, and other issues relating to your address and the local area. James Conservatories will help you to secure the right planning permission for your house extension.
House Extensions Glasgow
If you are looking for house extensions Glasgow has several companies to choose from. But at James Conservatories we believe that for complete peace of mind you need to choose a builder you can trust. That's why our master builders personally carry out a full site inspection before preparing your quote, and we welcome any questions you may have about your house extension.
House Extension Costs
When calculating how much a house extension will cost it is important to take into account not just the size of the extension, but also factors like the presence of underground drains, any slope in the site, the depth of foundations required to prevent any future subsidence, local planning considerations and other issues. Because of this, James Conservatories prefer not to give out fixed house extension prices without first having inspected the property and proposed site, and looked into specific local planning restrictions where relevant.
Some house extension companies in Glasgow advertise very cheap house extensions, but then add on a number of expensive extras to reach the final price. James Conservatories believe in offering one straightforward quote for house extensions, that takes into account the price of the initial designs and drawings (carried out by a professional architect), obtaining planning permission, construction of foundations to at least Building Control standards, bricklaying to match the existing property, all double glazed windows and doors and interior finishing.
