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
  • ventilation
  • 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
