It is not everyone’s choice to have a conservatory, or you may in fact already have one but would still like to create extra living space.
Whether extending an existing room or building a new one, Paines ensures that your extension is indistinguishable from your original house through accurate brick matching and mirroring features in the existing house such as window style, soldier courses etc. Our attention to detail is second to none.
Our comprehensive service makes the intrusive nature of building more bearable. There is no need for you to arrange for additional tradesmen to visit your home. We can take care of all your requirements and where necessary make use of a trusted and reliable group of sub contractors with whom we liaise directly.
Building an extension means you are more likely to require planning permission than if converting a garage or adding a conservatory, and you will definitely need Building Regulations approval. Paines will submit the relevant paperwork and drawings and liaise with your local authority to obtain the necessary permission and the certificate of Building Regulations approval.
For Mr & Mrs Bass of Welwyn Garden City the kitchen/diner is the heart of their home, but for some time had not matched up to their expectations both in terms of space and style.
Initially, they had hoped to fulfil their dream of a large kitchen area with a floating island in the middle and more entertainment space through building a conservatory. Following discussions with Building Control, as this meant removing the house wall therefore making the conservatory part of the house, it would not have been possible to achieve the necessary Building Regulations approval due to the lack of thermal efficiency of a largely glass structured conservatory.
“Paines showed us it would be possible to create what we wanted by building an extension on the back of the house. They were able to build a tiled roof of the same design as the conservatory roof we had wanted and the vaulted ceiling with velux windows has created the feeling of space and light we had only thought possible with a conservatory. We now have the modern and stylish kitchen we wanted plus more room to entertain. Paines have made our dream come true.”
