Extensions

From concept to completion A1 Joinery Ltd can extend or refurbish your property. From planning and building to handover we can provide a turnkey solution with minimal disruption. Please see the below photo gallery to see examples of our work. 

Taking the first step.

Firstly A1 Joinery Ltd would call to your home to survey the property for viability of your propsed ideas. All initial home visits are completely free of charge - as are the quotations for any work you would like us to undertake.

Many ideas that people have are quite feasible, but there are considerations such as access to the property from the front or rear or drainage for example and we can talk these through with you to see how it affects your design structurally- or makes improvements to it architecturally.

If you do not already have your own design - or your design is something you may even just have scribbled on some paper, we can turn your ideas into reality.

One of the most common questions we get at the initial visit is "How much will it roughly cost". Thankfully we can roughly provide an estimate based on the size of the floor area to extend into to help you decide the viability even at such an early stage.

Bringing the design to life.

Once you have traditional paper plans or more advanced 3d CAD drawings they may need to be submitted to the relevant planning and building control departments. The prices for submitting can vary depending on the size of the extension, we can normally advise on a rough price to submit plans if required. The planning approval process can take 6-8 weeks.

After the plans are approved.

Building work can begin within a few weeks - to fit around your commitments or schedule. Initially the building contract will need to be signed by both parties (us and you) so each party is clear on their commitments. A building schedule/programme of works document will be provided. This also shows at what stages of construction each part payment will be required.

During building we liaise with the building inspector at the various inspection stages as we head toward completion. 

Handover.

The final stage involves cleaning up and ensuring that everything has been completed to the customers satisfaction.
