How to Build an Extension

Building an extension can be a difficult task for even the most experienced DIYers. So we strongly suggest that the first step you take on how to build your extension is to speak directly to industry professionals that know how.

Ultraframe can provide you with your nearest approved Ultra Installer to provide you with your extension build on time and budget. We are committed to providing you with the perfect plan to build an extension to your home. With our extensive network of installers, we can be sure that you don’t have to settle for anything less than quality.

Build an Extension Where to Start

The first step when deciding to build an extension is to work out your house extension options. With an extensive collection of extension styles to choose from, you can be sure to find the right style to suit your home, taste and budget with us. Choose between our Performance Glass Extension, Livinroof House Extension and our Ultraroof House Extension.

Considerations to Make Before Extending

Does your property have a shared wall that could affect the building work being carried out? If your new extension involves building or digging through foundations of 3m of the boundary, wall or wall structure, you will first need to comply with the Party Wall Act regulations.

Does your property have site access? When you begin your extension, trucks and lorries will need to gain access to your property, and this includes the roads leading to your home. If they are unable to get to your home, due to a small single track road they were unaware of, this can affect your build.

Have you got house insurance? It is important to notify your insurance provider of any additional extensions you wish to add to your home to ensure that your new extension is covered in your current policy. Some insurers often have dedicated insurance specifically for house extension projects.

Have you got any obstructions in the area you wish to extend? Large surrounding trees, flooding issues or an old unused appliance, car or any aspect that could affect getting your plans done in the region you wish for it?
