For so many of us the past year, and the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, has seen us spending more time at home than ever before. We have found ourselves working from home, suddenly without a lengthy commute into a shared workplace, and socialising at home with a limited number of people rather than going out.
This extra time at home has focused our minds on carrying out home improvements. Perhaps we have always wanted a conservatory or extension, or perhaps we now need extra space within our homes to provide a choice of living spaces for the family members spending more time at home together or even a dedicated home office space. An extension can help with all of these needs and, unlike moving home, it will be perfectly tailored to your needs.
Whatever type of extension you are looking for, whether that is a traditional extension, a conservatory or orangery, Your Choice are the experts in helping you ensure that your dreams become reality. We take you all the way through from design to completion with our full design and build service, and our completed projects benefit from insurance backed guarantees.
New permitted development rights to shorten the planning process
Now is the ideal time to carry out your extension project to give you the extra space you need. If you have been thinking about extending upwards as well as to the back or side of your property, you may have been put off in the past by the need for planning permission. The great news is that the government have extended the ‘permitted development rights’, so in many cases now even if you are looking for a two-storey extension you will be able to take advantage of a fast track through the planning process. This will mean that you can start work on your extension more quickly. Of course, some exceptions do apply but a large number of homeowners will find building an extension easier than ever.
Do not discount upgrading an existing conservatory to make it usable all year round. It is quite possible that like so many homeowners you have a conservatory already but you do not make the maximum use of it, because it is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Talk to us at Your Choice about our Eco hybrid conservatory roof insulation – keeping the home warmer during the colder months, and helps to keep it cooler during the heat of a hot summer too. A well-insulated conservatory can become a useful year-round addition to your home and it will reduce your heating bills, saving you money in the long run. Your conservatory ceiling internal height will not be noticeably reduced.
A conservatory insulated with the eco hybrid roof insulation system could make the ideal location for a home office. The insulation reduces glare from computer and tablet screens, and also reduces rain noise, making it a comfortable and peaceful place to work.
