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.
Increase The Size And Value Of Your Home With A House Extension
While banks and lenders are once again attempting to get consumers to borrow, with people’s finances and employment still not as secure as they would like, many people are electing to extend their homes rather than migrate to accommodate their growing family.
There are various options for home extensions in Glasgow, but if you want to enhance both space and value, you must carefully consider all of your options before commencing work.
The options for house extensions are governed by two factors: accessible space and accessible cash to complete the project…
Terraced houses are popular for first-time buyers and retirees looking for a mortgage-free lifestyle, but they can be space-constrained. Rather of adding a bedroom, many terraced homes benefit from more living space. Extending the lounge and kitchen to create a much-need dining area might greatly boost the value of the house.
Loft conversions are ideal for bigger terraced houses because they might provide an additional bedroom that is desperately required. Additionally, advancements in plumbing technology now make it possible to build 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 particulars.
Adding a level to the garage is a very inexpensive way to increase the size and worth of the space that many Glasgow homeowners are unaware of. You will need to consult a surveyor or engineer to ensure that the garage’s foundations are capable of supporting the additional load of another storey, but this is typically not a problem – builders indicate that even remedial work on foundations is less expensive than laying a completely new set for a new single layer.
Naturally, house extensions in Glasgow do not have to be grandiose or costly. Garages are typically underutilised parts of the home that are attached to or adjacent to it. If you’re looking for a versatile addition to your house, converting your garage into a living space rather than a glorified storage space may be a good investment.
With all the talk of ‘adding value’ and building a home that will sell, we sometimes lose sight of the fact that we and our family may remain in the house for an extended period of time! Consider what you need in your Glasgow home and resist the notion that ‘adding an additional bathroom would increase the value by x amount. Consider this option if you require a fourth bedroom. If extra ground floor space is required, investigate the space you currently have and how it may be transformed, renovated, or expanded to meet your needs.

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.

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.

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.

One of the most often requested inquiries we receive from callers is, “Will my extension require planning approval?” There is no one-size-fits-all answer to that issue because it is dependent on the type of the extension, the space in which it is being constructed, the status/age of your house (i.e. is it a listed structure or is it inside its grounds?) and if it is located in a conservation area (you can usually check this online).
Whether or not planning permission is required depends on the nature of your existing property, the type of extension you are considering (e.g., there are different rules for single-storey extensions versus multi-storey extensions, porches, and roof alterations), the visual impact, increase in footprint, height, and proximity to the property’s boundary.
When considering an addition, you should always visit your local council’s planning department. While planning applications can be handled alone, in our experience, it is far easier to work with an architect who is aware of and knowledgeable about the prerequisites for submitting an application and the processes involved. Obtaining planning approval requires payment of a charge to the council, and decisions on domestic house extension applications can take up to two months.
While certain extensions will come under the category of “permitted development,” which does not require official planning approval, homeowners should confirm this completely by contacting the relevant local authority’s planning department prior to beginning with the building of an addition. Councils may issue a fee-based “Certificate of Lawfulness” to certify that a planned extension qualifies as “permitted development.”
What is a Building Warrant?
Another often addressed topic concerns the purpose of building warrants. A building warrant is an authorization from the appropriate local council to commence construction work. This is a completely different document and application procedure than planning approval (which is primarily concerned with visual effect and relative size/footprint/height increase).
The warrant is designed to guarantee that your construction work conforms with applicable Scottish building rules (the Building (Scotland) Act 2003) and is energy efficient, safe, healthy, sanitary, and accessible. The majority, if not all, extensions will require a building warrant, and no work will begin until one is secured.
As with planning approval, there is a charge given to the council, and though you may manage this yourself, we would prefer that you leave it to building industry pros. This procedure may take up to four weeks to complete.
