House Extensions Increase Your Home's Size And Value
While banks and lenders are once again seeking to encourage customers to borrow, many people are choosing to expand their houses rather than relocate to accommodate their growing family since their finances and job are still not as secure as they would want.
There are several possibilities for Glasgow house extensions, but if you want to increase both room and value, you must carefully evaluate all of your options before beginning construction.
The possibilities for house additions are limited by two factors: available space and available funds to finish the project…
Terraced houses are popular among first-time buyers and retirees looking for a mortgage-free lifestyle, although they might be small. Many terraced homes benefit from extra living space rather than adding a bedroom. Extending the living and kitchen to create a much-needed dining room may significantly increase the house’s value.
Loft conversions are great for larger terraced properties because they may give a much-needed extra bedroom. Furthermore, advances in plumbing technology now allow for the construction of an en suite bathroom. However, as with all Glasgow home extensions, it is critical to complete the work properly to ensure compliance with building and fire regulations, as well as planning permission – failing to do so will result in the £25,000 or so you spent being a waste if the bedroom becomes a ‘hobby’ room in your home, selling particulars specifics.
Many Glasgow homeowners are unaware that adding a level to the garage is a fairly affordable method to improve the size and value of the space. You’ll need to contact a surveyor or engineer to check that the garage’s foundations can take the additional load of another storey, but this is usually not an issue – builders say that even repair work on foundations is less expensive than installing a whole new set for a new single layer.
House extension in Glasgow, of course, do not have to be extravagant or expensive. Garages are often underutilised sections of the house that are attached to or adjacent to it. Converting your garage into a living area rather than a glorified storage room may be a worthwhile investment if you’re seeking for a multipurpose addition to your home.
With all of the discussion about “adding value” and “creating a home that will sell,” we sometimes lose sight of the reality that we and our families may be staying in the house for a lengthy period of time! Consider what you require in your Glasgow house and avoid the illusion that “adding an extra bathroom would raise the value by x amount.” If you require a fourth bedroom, consider this option. If you need more ground floor space, look at the space you already have and how it may be converted, refurbished, or expanded to fit your demands.

You did an excellent job. I'm pleased with the quickness and quality. I would strongly suggest the service if you're needing a garage conversion.
Service that is really professional. I was really pleased with the quality of my flooring and the water damage repairs since the staff on site were fast and thorough. Exceptional communication throughout the entire process. I would certainly use this service again.
Last year, I had Luke Lloyd Builders undertake a variety of jobs for me, and I was always pleased with the results. This time, he did a fantastic job of repairing and repainting the water-damaged ceilings in the unit I'm about to sell. I'm hoping he'll build me a new kitchen next time! What a "Find!!
Had some assistance with the kitchen makeover; excellent work, on time and on a budget 🙂 and it looks fantastic. I'm looking forward to cooking in the new kitchen! Thank you, gentlemen.

Types of House Extensions in Glasgow
Luke Lloyd Builders are professionals in the construction of numerous sorts of extensions throughout Glasgow and Scotland. Before you begin your construction project, it’s a good idea to consider the sorts of extensions that would meet your area and/or your living requirements.
Here are just a few of the extension kinds available to you, including a side return extension, a wraparound extension, a single and a two-storey extension.
Single Storey Extension
This is a very popular design since it can be built to the rear or side of a house and extends into the existing garden/backyard area. It has a bigger kitchen, utility room, and a kitchen-dining area for entertainment that may expand onto a terrace or the garden via bi-fold doors.
This is when both the lower and upper floors are extended concurrently to create greater space on both levels, for example, a larger kitchen-dining area downstairs and larger (or more) bedrooms upstairs.
Certain older houses have extensive side space (usually a yard or wide path). We can take this unused or underutilised area and incorporate it into the side of your home to generate the additional living space you want..
Where houses have sufficient side and backspace, we may extend in both directions utilising a wrap-around extension, which wraps around two elevations of your home to produce the maximum amount of extra internal space.

Most Popular Questions
Yes. The majority of building work in Scotland needs the acquisition of a building warrant prior to construction beginning. To learn more about what a building warrant is, visit our section What is a building warrant? (above) for further information. rules.
To assure your total satisfaction, we provide a one-year warranty on the craftsmanship of our expansions (from date of completion). Meant to provide you with total peace of mind.
Construction period should be around three to four months for a pretty basic three-metre single rear extension. It may be closer to six months for a bigger or double-height back extension. This does not include the design and planning phases of the project, which will vary depending on whether planning or other approvals are required. A reasonable timetable for the majority of house extensions (where planning approval and maybe a party wall agreement are required), from the moment you hire your architect to completion, would be about a year.

“Will my extension require planning approval?” is one of the most frequently asked questions we hear from customers. There is no one-size-fits-all response to that question because it is dependant on the sort of addition, the area available for construction, and the status/age of your home (i.e. is it a listed structure or is it located inside its grounds?). and if the property is situated inside a conservation area (you can usually check this online).
Whether or not planning permission is required is determined by the nature of your existing property, the type of extension you are considering (for example, there are different rules for single-story versus multi-story extensions, porches, and roof alterations), the visual impact, increase in footprint and height, and proximity to the property’s boundary.
When considering an addition, you should always consult the planning department of your local municipality. While planning applications may be done independently, we have found that it is considerably more convenient to work with an architect who is aware of and educated about the criteria for filing an application and the associated processes. Payment of a fee to the council is required to get planning approval, and decisions on domestic home expansion applications can take up to two months.
While certain expansions may fall under the category of “permitted development,” which does not require formal planning clearance, homeowners should clarify this thoroughly by contacting the appropriate local authority’s planning department prior to commencing construction. Councils may issue a fee-based “Certificate of Lawfulness” certifying that a proposed extension is within the definition of “permitted development.”
What is a Warrant for a Structure?
Another frequently discussed subject is the purpose of warrants. A building warrant is a permit issued by the relevant municipal council authorising the commencement of construction work. This is a distinct document and application procedure from planning permission (which is primarily concerned with aesthetic impact and relative size/footprint/height increase).
The warrant is intended to ensure that your construction work complies with relevant Scottish building regulations (the Building (Scotland) Act 2003) and is energy efficient, safe, healthy, hygienic, and accessible. A building warrant is required for the majority, if not all, extensions, and no work will begin until one is obtained.
As with planning permission, the council charges a fee, and while you may do this yourself, we recommend that you leave it to construction industry professionals. This treatment has a potential duration of up to four weeks.

Aberdeen is a port city in northeast Scotland, at the confluence of the Dee and Don rivers. The city has an international population due to its offshore petroleum sector. It’s also known as the “Granite City” because of its many long-lasting grey-stone structures. The Marischal College, a 19th-century Victorian landmark that currently serves as the City Council’s offices, is typical.
