How to find a good builder
Discover what to look out for when choosing a builder for your new kitchen or your next home project, and how to make the right choice for you.
Tradespeople for bigger projects
If you are planning an extension, your builder may find a tradesperson with specialist skills to complete your project. This may include a qualified architect to oversee the design and drawing phase, as well as bricklayers, window fitters and roofers, who take care of fascias, soffits and guttering.
For any type of extension to your property, either up or out, your builder should check building regulations and contact your local authority to see whether you need planning permission. The Planning Portal website has information about the planning process and regulations, and accepts applications.
