Decal Scotland limited provides a home extension service to customers across Motherwell.
When you engage a professional house extensions contractor, there are a few key factors to consider before beginning the planning process. Our approach is to tackle these concerns first so they don't cause problems later on.
Any shared walls are at the top of the list. If you want to create or dig foundations within three metres of a boundary or party wall, you must follow the Party Wall Act. The same is true if you're digging foundations that are less than six meters from a property line.
Another factor to consider is site access – how easily can construction workers, equipment, and delivery vehicles get to the property? You need to make sure that people can reach the location to do the job, and if something goes wrong, this may limit your options.
When planning an extension, it's crucial to examine the site and important elements around it. The soil conditions, services like gas and electricity, trees surrounding the home, and any flooding history, as well as any rights of way that affect the property, can all have an impact on what may be done.
But don't worry because as experts in house extensions, we can help navigate all these potential issues and ensure you get the extension you want while keeping within the rules and regulations.
