Even if your home extension can be built under Permitted Development rights, all works must get Building Regulations approval.
The Building Regulations set out minimum requirements for:
- structural integrity
- fire safety
- energy efficiency
- damp proofing
- and other key aspects that ensure a building is safe.
Most repair work is excluded from Building Regulations, with the exceptions of replacement windows, underpinning and rewiring. However, apart from certain new buildings such as sheds, outbuildings and some conservatories, all new building work, including alterations, must comply with the Regulations.
Here at R Richardson & Son, we ensure all our works fall in line with Building Regulations. If you are looking for a new home extension then contact us today
