When you’re in need of garage, loft conversion, home renovations and refurbishments, extension, new build or any other property work, you’ll be looking for reputable building services in your local area. At Scream Directory, we can help you to find builders who are ready and willing to complete your project at a fair price.
Usually home renovations and loft conversions require planning permission, but some building firms will actually assist you through the process of gaining permission. Before planning permission can be gained, you will need plans of the proposed property for a new build or rebuild, or plans of property changes for renovations, conversions and extensions. If you opt for builders who will not be dealing with the planning permission the process is slightly different.
The Building Process
The first thing that you need to do is have an architect draw up plans for your home renovations, loft conversion, extension or new build. This will usually only be a basic outline plan which will enable you to apply to the local planning office for planning permission. Once you have these, you can apply for planning permission and once the permission is granted, you must get full plans drawn up by the architect for building regulations.
When you have the full building regulations drawing of the proposed home renovations, extension, loft conversion or new build, you need to get Building Regulations Approval. Pay all of your fees etc and then once approved you can contact local builders listed in Scream Directory for a quote. Remember, it’s not just about price!
