EXTENSION TYPES

Flat roof rear extension Pitched roof rear extension Pitched roof rear extension Side extension Single pitched roof rear extension
Types of Loft Conversion

Planning tip
The extension must not be higher than 4m, or extend beyond the width of your existing house. If your house is terraced, it should not extend beyond 3m to the rear and if semi-detached, beyond 4m.

Flat roof rear extension - single storey

This is a flat roof extension that can be built to the rear of a semi-detached, detached or terraced property. The flat roof keeps costs down, and gives you the maximum possible extra space.

You'll gain a lot of extra floor space so this type of extension is very versatile. There'll be enough room for a kitchen/diner with a utility room and downstairs toilet. You could have a large, airy breakfast room - or just make your living room larger. It's up to you.

Planning tip
As far as practicable, the roof pitch should match that of your existing house. The maximum eaves and ridge height should not exceed 4m.

Pitched roof rear extension -
single storey


This is the most popular type of extension, particularly for terraced houses in city centres. We can add a dining area to your kitchen, or you may want a bright and airy garden room.

Pitched roof rear extension -
double storey


A double storey pitched roof extension is one of the best ways to add both space and considerable value to your home. It looks more expensive than it actually is. At DMB, we use a combination of professional engineering and well-chosen materials to keep the costs down.

The two storeys makes this type of extension extremely versatile. For example, you can extend your kitchen and gain an en-suite bathroom or extra bedroom above. A good investment.

Types of Loft Conversion

Planning tip
The side extension should not be greater than half the width of the house, and the height must not exceed 4m.

Side extension - single storey

A side extension is great way to expand your property without sacrificing a lot of valuable garden space. It's also affordable because the flat roof keeps costs down.

If you have an unused garage we can transform it into a comfortable, spacious extra room. Or we can design and build a whole new space for a utility room or an extra bedroom.

As far as practicable, the roof pitch should match that of your existing house. The maximum eaves and ridge height of the extension should not exceed a height of 4m from rear elevation.

Single-pitched roof rear extension - single story

This type of extension adds both space and light to your home because the pitched roof can incorporate roof windows.

The space isn't just large and light, it's also very versatile. If you like, a dark kitchen or dining room can be transformed into a bright, sunny kitchen/diner complete with utility room and downstairs toilet.
