Project Work

When you look through our site, you might get the idea that we only tackle the major aspects of our projects, whether it’s a loft conversion, a garage conversion or a house extension.

You might like the sound of what we do, but wonder whether you’ll have to find other traders to do other jobs that are necessary to make sure that the new room in your home is ready for you to move into and enjoy.

Well don’t worry, because when we take on any project, we make sure that we complete all the required work, from plastering and plumbing to tiling and electrics, so that all you have to do is choose the decor and furniture you want to make it yours.

If you’d like to know more about what you get from a Highline Design & Build home improvement project, then give us a call and we’ll talk you through it. Or ask for a free home visit to discuss your plans in detail – we can then provide a free quotation spelling out exactly what’s included.

How long will my project take?

Each project is different and the size of the build will determine the time it will take to complete; however, an average rear extension/loft conversion will take approximately six weeks from start to finish.

Will I be able to live in my property while the work goes on?

Yes, you will be able to live in the property. If this is the case, we will attempt to leave the breaking through into the house until as late as possible in the project.

Will someone be on site every day?

Yes, we will have someone on site every day. However, the caveat to this is if we are waiting on drying times or materials. That being said, we will endeavour to have a team member/team members present as much as possible to ensure the project is completed in a timely manner.

Will an extension add value to my property?

Absolutely, it is becoming more and more popular to add space to your existing property instead of the hassle and fees involved with moving. Adding additional square meterage can add up to 10-20% onto the market value.

Can you help with plans/designs?

Of course, we can offer suggestions and ideas, and show you previous projects. We can also arrange for you to visit a previous project if required. We have built relationships with trusted architects and can introduce you to our preferred contacts in order to obtain your drawings.

How long does it take to get planning permission?

It will depend upon whether you are applying for permitted planning or full planning permission. Different councils work to different timescales; however, as a guide from submission of plans it will take approximately 8-12 weeks.
