Home Extension Builders in Preston

Building an Extension in Preston

Adding an extension to your home offers you an affordable and convenient alternative to moving house to accommodate for increased space requirements. At times where house prices are not increasing, many people have opted to remain living in their existing property. The addition of an extension offers you extended living space for your family whilst also increasing the value of your property.

Extending your home is a valid investment for anyone wishing to sell their home shortly for a profit or for those wishing to remain where they are. Investing in an extension may incur a significant initial cost but will work out to prove money well spent in the longer term.

Design and planning

When designing an extension to your property, it is important to keep the new design as appropriate as possible to the existing building. The most prominent features should match and you will need to use similar building materials. A good extension will look as though it was built as part of the original building an fits with the local environment. At this point, the new doors and windows should be checked to ensure that they match the level of the existing features.

Planning permission

You should discuss your building intentions with any neighbours who may be effected by the extension. When your planning application is being processed, objections and concerns by neighbours could affect the process, which could mean redrawing your plans and resubmitting. A successful extension will fit in with the other buildings in the street.

Planning permission is required before you attempt most house extensions. Planning permission will consider the effect on the local environment, road access, land use and building appearance. It is a good idea to liaise with local authorities before submitting the application to discover if there is any potential problems.

Building Regulations

The Government's Building Regulations are the rules which most new builds and extensions will need to comply to throughout the project. The Building Regulations provide a minimum standard of design and construction that ensure your building observes the latest health and safety requirements.

Any building or extension that is required to comply to the Building Regulations will be inspected by a qualified builder throughout the building process.

Labour and supplies

Employing the wrong builders and workforce is a common mistake that is made by many people who try to manage a new extension project without previous knowledge of the building industry. A cowboy builder will offer you the best price available and undercut any previous quotation but you may have to sacrifice the quality of the work that is provided.

Employing builders that cut corners and produce low quality work will end up costing you more money in the long term, especially if you are planning on selling your house. Investing in a competent project manager will save you a lot of stress and allow you to communicate your wishes quickly throughout the site.


Budgeting for your extension is the most important consideration before you begin any project. You need to ensure that you have the resources available to see the building project through to the end and that there is money left over for any emergency or unforeseen delays. Remember to include Building Regulations application and planning permission fees in your budget. You should also be prepared to pay extra mortgage payments if you are planning on selling your house and the project is not completed on time.
