Types of Brick Extensions

With loft conversions, our design choices are often constrained by the parameters of the roof and the type of materials we must use to match. The advantage of brick extensions and house extensions is that you can start with a ‘blank page’ design of almost limitless freedom of expression. There are a plethora of different kinds of roof, glazing, door and cladding options available and that’s just what’s on the outside. Whether you are intent on a grand kitchen/dining area, an expanded lounge or even something unusual like an interior swimming pool, our Essex house builders can deliver an extension to your home which will give you superb options by which to enhance your living arrangements. Our team can even help design and develop your dream coastal home. We are fortunate to have access to main road transport links from the centre out to the coast such as the A12 and A130, meaning we can move from client to client seamlessly. If you are looking for more information or advice on house extensions in Essex, be sure to get in touch with our team today.

Single storey extensions are one of the most popular types of extensions available. These increase the size of the downstairs space, giving you additional rooms for entertaining or dining. Smaller single-storey extensions can fall within permitted development, however, those that give you a vast increase in space will require planning permission from the local authority.

Multi-storey extensions give you both additional room upstairs and downstairs. The majority of multi-storey extensions are built to the side or rear of the property, as they have less of an impact on the local area aesthetic.

Wraparound extensions are exactly what they say on the tin and will wrap around the perimeter of your home. These types of extensions will typically extend the space to the side and rear of your home and are most commonly single-story, however, you can also get multi-storey wraparound extensions.

An over-structure extension is an extension over an existing single-storey structure such as a previous extension or garage. This type of extension is typically much easier to get approved as you are simply expanding the space above an existing area.

Some properties already have a basement and it could be an untapped area in your home. However, it is also possible to add a basement to a property without one, however, the work can be much more extensive. If you don’t currently have a basement, then you could consider increasing the space my going up into your loft instead.

A conversion of the loft space is one of the most common types of extensions available. They prove to be a cost-effective way to expand the home and you won’t lose any garden space either.

An extension doesn’t always have to be attached to your home, and you could expand the space available by converting or building and outhouse or barn. These will give you a minute property on your land that could you use from anything from office space to short term let.

Permitted Development Vs. Planning Permission - What's the Difference?

The majority of both loft conversions and ground floor extensions can be achieved without passage through Planning Permission, where the local authority has the option either to deny an application or demand certain amendments to the design. This is because the law grants an automatic entitlement to extend your home, called Permitted Development, in which you can add an additional 40 cubic meters to your home (in the case of terraced properties) or an additional 50 cubic meters. (in the case of either semi-detached or detached properties)

Most people prefer to go through Permitted Development because you are essentially informing the local authority of your intention to proceed rather than actually applying. The process is therefore certain in its outcome and much faster and easier to progress than Planning Permission. However, to go through Permitted Development, there will be some limitations to your design, which we will have to observe. To push the design specification beyond the limits imposed by Permitted Development will require a Planning Permission application. Throughout Essex, we are able to help you get your loft and ground floor extensions underway, if you are looking to do a bigger development we can walk you through how to apply for Planning Permission.

Frequently Asked Questions

An extension is an increase in the upstairs or downstairs space of a property. There are many different types of extension you can choose from, some of which fall within permitted development, whereas others will require planning permission.

The cost of the extension will depend on its size, the finish you choose and how much work is involved. We provide some of the best quotes for property extensions and will ensure you are given a fair and competitive price.

This entirely depends on where you are based and the size of the extension. When carrying out the initial assessment of your property, we’ll give you advice on the permission you might need and can support you through the planning application process.

The length of time it takes to build an extension can range anywhere between 3-6 months. These fluctuations in time frame can depend on a number of factors such as the size of the extension, if planning is needed and the work involved. When you choose us we’ll give you an estimated time frame for completion and will inform you if any delays are expected.
