Do I Need an Architect for my Extension?

House extensions, historically a costly, timely and sometimes stressful process, have evolved over the years to enable homeowners a smoother and simpler process that does not compromise on quality. However, with this in mind, people still ask - do I need an architect for my extension?

The short answer is no, not when you use a Which? Approved Ultra Installer who is competent in handling our specialist products.

An Ultra Installer provides the complete service from design to build so you can work with one company from start to finish. When it comes to our selection of house extensions, they handle everything to ensure you don’t have to worry about any of that dreaded red tape too!

It won’t matter what extension you choose from us, whether it is the performance glass extension, Ultraroof extension or Livinroof extension, the services of an architect won’t be necessary. This is because all of our extension options are designed to operate in full compliance with all modern building regulations. This can reduce your costs and time consuming red tape during the planning process.

Expert designers will work with you to create the design you want using our specialist design software helping you re-imagine your space. The structural design guide within the software then engineers your design to ensure the strcutural requirements are met for your specific postcode.

Because your specific components are then manufactured at Ultraframe’s dedicated factory, your build can happen in a matter of days and not weeks as there is a lot less mess and work required on site during the build process.

Seamless Aesthetics

You’ll be able to enjoy a new room in your home that offers a seamless aesthetic throughout your home. When installed by an Ultra Installer, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your new home improvement has been handled in a professional, reliable and efficient manner across the board, on time and on budget.

It won’t matter if your home is new or old, large or small, your nearest Ultraframe specialist will be able to help. Our network of approved installers has been endorsed by Which? Trusted Traders for a reason and all installers undergo a two-tier inspection; we inspect the quality of their installation practices and Which? assess their consumer service standards.

This means that you won’t need to outsource expertise to an architect because Ultra Installers offer the whole package. We’ll offer you the complete team, delivering your project on time and on a budget, ensuring you get a new addition to your home that will cause minimal disruption to your daily life. However, we understand that you may feel more comfortable having an architect on board. When you choose Ultraframe, we always have you in mind. This means that we are more than happy to collaborate with an architect throughout the installation process, just let us know what you want to, and we’ll make sure it goes your way.
