Professional New Build House ExtensionExtension
If you are thinking of increasing the size of a property via building an extension, you might have chosen the right area and design for that already. It could be garage, porch, conservatory, orangery, single-storey extension, two-storey/multi-story extension, over-structure extension, basement, or loft conversion.
Before you build an extension, you will plan and prepare for everything, starting from construction, project design, duration, material, and budget, and last but not least, electrical installations. Most homeowners choose a specialist designer from renowned companies and architects to bring their imaginations to life.
The same goes for the electrician. If you choose the right one at the beginning of the extension building project, you will analyse which electrical services you need, and where. The budget to complete your extension project is important so you can get quotes and estimates early during the construction of your extension depending on the size and location.
Why Follow The Building Regulations?
The growing changes in regulations demand the addition of smoke detectors set in special locations such as kitchens and bathrooms, and require you to inform building control before embarking on a project.
The best way to tackle new-build electrics is to choose professional electricians. Though smaller extensions don’t require any application for planning permission, larger extensions do. We would suggest you look into the matter and get the approval in case your new build needs it. No matter what the size of your extension, it must comply with many building rules and regulations, including electrical. So we recommend you to hire a RECI registered contractor like us who can work with and notify the local building control body on your behalf and provide you with a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate, which will ensure that the work has been carried out according to the required standard.Get a quote
Things to consider before you begin your extension project
• First consult a RECI registered electrician to get the best and most appropriate advice.
• If the major part of the property has wiring of more than 25-30 years old, then it is recommended that you go for complete rewiring along with the extension wiring.
• If you need minor upgrades, like adding extra power points to some part of your home, then it could be done during extension wiring.
• Most people replace the single sockets with doubles or built-in USB ports.
• Consider adding smart home technology that allows you to control the lights, entertainment, blinds, and security with a touch of a button or smartphone directly.
• Consider taking appropriate fire precautions. For that, you can consider installing mains powered, interlinked smoke detectors.
• If your extension project includes a shower or bathroom, then precautions to avoid wet rooms must be taken.
