Here are a few basic things to consider before undergoing renovation works. Every project is different so it’s best to talk to a professional to understand exactly what you’re planning and what you need to do to ensure everything goes smoothly.
Are you using a designer or designing it yourself?
We’re happy to work on your next project whether you’re designing it or are using a professional. The benefits of having a designer is that they’ll be able to make a realistic assessment of costs to renovate, how to add value to a property, and utilising a building’s features.
Does it require structural change?
If you’re not too keen on the layout of your property, then you may want to remove internal walls to create more space. While you won’t need planning permission for this (unless it’s a listed building), you’ll have to follow building regulations.
Do you require planning permission?
It depends on what you’re going for, if you want to remodel then this usually falls within permitted development, but building regulations will need to be adhered to. However, if you are extending the overall footprint of the building then you’ll need to make an application to your local authority.
It might sound a lot of work, but working with a professional team like D&N Construction will take a lot of the stress away. We’ve worked on a whole range of projects and we’ll help you to make your home better and the way that you want it.
