It’s an exciting time extending the dream home, expanding the nest, infusing the bricks and mortar further with your personal touch. It’s also a complicated time with many decisions to make and many rules to adhere to such as building regulations. If the extension is above the first floor or takes up more than a certain amount of space it is very likely that planning permission will need to be sought and that you will need to prove that the plans meet the Building Regulations. Any reputable builder will ensure that the Building Regulations are being met and I will work seamlessly alongside them to ensure that the electrical installation does not fall short.
The extension is of the body of the building and the style, extending the feeling of the house or creating something new. The electricity is the lifeblood of the extension. You want to feel good sitting out there in your new space, the mood needs to be right with lighting, music and temperature which all needs to fit the interior design seamlessly.
Electrical Considerations For Extensions
- For aesthetic reasons you will need your power supply to be out of sight which means you need to have absolute faith that it has been installed properly and safely for the ongoing safety of you and your family and for the value of your house if you decide to sell.
- You will need to be sure that the power consumption is appropriate for your needs.
- You deserve to have confidence that the disruption of the electrical supply to the rest of your home is no more than necessary when extending the flow of electricity beyond the many demands that are already in place.
When doing any work to your home it is about entrusting a job to someone who will do you proud, who will give you your dream by sticking to the budget, adhering effortlessly to regulations and ensuring your instructions are being followed with a genuine smile. That’s me.
