Build Stages – Extensions
Our team will firstly prepare drainage systems and dig the footings before pouring concrete in accordance with previously made plans. We will also build the blockwork out of the ground to ensure sufficient damp proofing.
Walls will then be constructed using high-quality bricks, blocks or timber up to the roof plate level. For the roof itself, our team will construct the flat or pitched roof and cover it with felt or tiles accordingly. To let light into your new space, we can also fit roof lanterns or Velux windows.
Once the extension is secure and dry, we can then knock through into your existing space and fit any steelwork or supports that have been specified by the structural engineer. This stage will be closely overseen by the building inspector to ensure everything has been installed correctly and within regulations.
The completion of this stage will allow us to move onto fitting the plumbing, electrical sockets, lighting and switches into place. We will also build partition walls and pack the surroundings with insulation to create the shell. From this point, our interior fitter can carry out the installation of doors and windows or a previously planned bathroom or kitchen. Our decorators will add the final touches and make sure everything is ready for you to move in straight away.
