Questions Answered by Your Local Building Company in Wimbledon | Egan Builders Ltd

Do I need planning permission for loft conversions?
In most cases, loft conversions fall under permitted development rights and do not require planning permission. However, certain conditions must be met, such as maintaining specific size limitations and not altering the roofline. As the Wimbledon area’s premier building company, and a specialist for loft conversions, we’re here to guide you through the process and liaise with local authorities when necessary.

What do property renovations entail?
Property renovations involve upgrading and improving the overall condition of your home. This can include interior and exterior enhancements, such as kitchen or bathroom remodelling, structural repairs, and aesthetic updates. Our builders ensure that Wimbledon residents receive a bespoke service, tailored to their tastes, wants and the needs of the property itself.

What types of house extensions are available to me?
Egan Builders Ltd tackles all sorts of different home extensions in the Wimbledon area, including single-story extensions, multi-story extensions, and even basement conversions. The choice depends on your space, budget, and desired outcome. To really add the maximum amount of space possible, multi-storey house extensions are ideal for obvious reasons, but these can also be harder to secure planning permission for and will also cost more.

Can I convert my garage into a living space?
Garage conversions are a popular way to create additional living space within Wimbledon homes. They can be transformed into bedrooms, home offices, gyms, hobby spaces – you’re only limited by the space given, and your imagination! One of the biggest draws of garage conversions is the fact that they’re often already just sitting there, underused or unused altogether. They can bypass the need for home extensions, and often don’t require planning permission.

What is the difference between property renovations and home refurbishments?
While property renovations involve upgrading specific elements of your property, home refurbishments focus on improving the overall appearance and functionality of your home. They can include repainting, flooring, and fixtures replacements. Wimbledon properties that are starting to get stuck in a past decade stylistically, will most likely best benefit from home refurbishments; have a change of layout, or fancy a new kitchen or bathroom? Property renovations are the way to go.
