Important Information Regarding House Extensions

 

While every extension project differs in some way from the last, there remain several constant similarities that unite them all. For example, at the very outset of the project, homeowners need to decide what type of extension they want us to build. In turn, this has an impact on whether the project requires planning permission as well as the extent of initial groundworks.

 

In the majority of cases, house extensions usually come in a combination of:

 

  • Single-Storey or Double-Storey
  • Side-of-Property or Rear-of-Property
  • Pitched Roof or Flat Roof

 

Individual circumstances such as available space, budget limitations and aesthetic appeal often dictate the final choice. In our role as building contractor, Specialist Design & Build works in conjunction with our clients in Harborne, Solihull, Birmingham and across the West Midlands to find the ideal balance for their project.

 

With a clear vision in mind, our team moves forward with this project, eventually undertaking construction of house extensions. At numerous points during this process, we must receive a sign-off from Building Control officers that prove our work fully complies with Building Regulations. Failure to do so might result in sanctions from the local council.

When it comes to house extensions, some of the common Building Regulations restrictions include:

 

  • House extensions with multiple storeys cannot extend above the rear wall by more than 3 metres
  • House extensions with two storeys cannot be placed within 7 metres of boundary lines at the rear of a property
  • Rear-of-property house extensions must not exceed a height of 3 metres if constructed within 2 metres of neighbouring boundaries
  • House extensions must comply with the 45 degree rule and Party Wall Act. This compliance ensures new structures of optimal safety while also stopping them from blocking sunlight reaching neighbouring properties
