Single Storey Extensions

Extensions are a great way of creating extra space at home, without the need for moving house and is also an excellent way of adding value to your property. Whether you are looking for a single, or double storey extension, a front porch extension, or simply to extend the kitchen, we’re here to help, advise and guide you through every step of the process, from the initial idea, right through to the planning, building and completion of the project.

All our home extensions are finished to the highest possible standard, on time and with minimal disruption. Our polite, hard working and professional team of craftsmen will also leave your property clean and tidy at the end of each day.


You may be able to make use of permitted development (PD) rights for your extension, which allow you to build without having to make a planning application.

However, under PD, you cannot use contrasting materials for an extension — they have to be similar to that of the existing house. If you want something different, permission will be needed. The footprint and height of the extension will also have to meet PD criteria.

If building under PD, you may want to apply for a certificate of lawful development from your local authority. You can build without one, but it will give you paperwork to prove that your scheme met requirements and did not need planning permission.

The general PD criteria is detailed on, but check with your local authority as well, because some areas have more restricted rights, such as in Conservation Areas. Local authorities can also use Article 4 Directions to remove rights.
