FROM DESIGN TO COMPLETION
Building a house extension is one of the most popular ways of adding some extra space to your home in Brighton and Hove. It can substantially improve your living comfort, give you more space, and last but not least, it will also raise the value of your property.
GB Construction (Brighton) Ltd offers a wide range of services in building house extensions in Brighton and Hove and East Sussex area. From a simple porch extension to a complex multi-storey house extension, from a garage conversion or over-structure extension to a basement conversion, building an extension will create a space suitable for numerous uses: a garage or a workshop, a separate utility room, a new or larger kitchen, an extra bathroom, a spare bedroom, a living room or a dining area.
Porches - A relatively small attachment at the front of the house, often not requiring planning permission unless in a conservation area or in a listed building. Building regulations approval might be required.
Sunrooms - Similar to a conservatory, but with a solid roof and more wall, thus creating a space that’s easier to heat and more usable throughout the year.
Single storey house extensions / two storey and multi-storey house extensions - These types of extensions adjoin the existing building and potentially provide significant extra space. Building regulations approval will definitely be required, and in most instances, a planning permission too.
Over-structure extensions - Built on top of the existing structure, often a garage. Might require a structural reinforcement to ensure foundation and load-bearing walls are suitable.
Garage conversions - One of the most cost-efficient ways to increase your living space and add value (even as much as 10%) to your property. Often doesn’t require a planning permission but will need a building regulations approval.
Loft conversions - Where possible, a loft conversion is an excellent way to boost living space, increase house value and add character to your home -- see our separate page on loft conversions for detailed information.
