More and more homeowners are choosing to extend their home, but it can be difficult to know where to start. So, we’ve put together a simple guide to help you plan the perfect home extension project.

Here are some of the best questions you should think about:

Is my property suitable for an extension?

You should consider the size, location, age and free space around your property when assessing whether your property is suitable. Find out about loft extensions.

Properties that are listed or in a protected position may not be able to gain permission for any changes so you should always check with your local authority for any special regulations in your area. A good builder or architect will be able to provide you with the best advice on the suitability of your home.

What should I use as my roofing material?

EPDM rubber is primarily used as a flat or low sloping roofing material for garages, sheds and buildings and is a great material to use on your extension.

These flat roofs are highly durable and are completely maintenance free, making it easier than ever to look after your roof. You may need various pieces of equipment to ensure the maximum benefits of EPDM rubber.
