Porches are small extensions to the front of a house. They can be more extensive and can be built to the side or back. Typical Swansea examples include simple structures of only brick walls, columns, windows, and a door. Larger versions can be bare brick or plastered and have a complete electrical installation. So, the porch can have light and electric sockets.

Most porches in Swansea do not need planning permission. If the porch is separated from the house by an internal door, and not heated, they will not need building certification. If you want the house extension builders to add electrics you must either:

  • has the job inspected by the building control department?
  • Or use a Part P registered home extension builder.


  • They are simple structures that are made of UPVC, timber or aluminium. Some Swansea conservatories require planning permission, and some do not, but the rules on building control apply as to porches.


  • A sunroom is a conservatory with one of those solid roof extension types and walls, including plenty of glazing. They are sturdy and warm while bringing in a lot of sunlight. Due to the higher costs involved and greater complexity than a wraparound conservatory, it is advisable to employ both an architectural company and an experienced home extension builder.
  • Rules for sunrooms are like that of conservatories for Planning Permission. Building control permission will be required.

Single Storey House Extensions Builders In Swansea

Single storey house extensions in Swansea are usually built onto a part of the house whereby one or more sides of the extension is attached to the property, and there is only the ground floor plus any basement built to it. Single storey extensions require building control, but they might not need planning permission.

Using our house extension builders in Swansea to make a Single Storey Side Extension can add significant value to your home, and here are some of the ideas you can turn your home extension into:

  • a dining room
  • a home office
  • a new bedroom
  • a playroom
  • a new kitchen & utility

The greatest considerations of this type of extension are the size of the extension, how the roof will work with the existing buildings and its impact upon your Swansea neighbours. Other potential difficulties are the positions of drains and chimneys and/or any needed excavations.

Single Storey Rear House Extensions Builders In Swansea

Where sufficient space is provided, a rear house extension has enormous potential to change the very nature of your house. This type of house extension idea can include internal property alterations such as to open your kitchen to your back garden and create an open-plan area that can be used as a combined kitchen, dining and living area. With this option, you will benefit from the size increase of your property. By using a home extension builder, you will also add a considerable amount of value to it. You can use this type of house extension to increase your rooms' space or use it to modify or even completely reorganise the way you utilise the interior floor space.

Single Storey Rear House Extensions Builders In Swansea

A well designed and constructed side extension will look and feel like a natural part of your home and not like a foreign body.

Two Storey Or Multi-Storey House Extensions Builders In Swansea

A multi-storey extension can be built to any part of the existing building.

A double-storey side extension can be used to add an extra bedroom or bathroom. You can even create a dining room with a spectacular ceiling height.

Due to its more complex nature, the costs are higher than the single-story house extension. The impact on your Swansea neighbours is much more significant. Our house extension builders in Swansea can only add a two-storey extension on a detached or semi-detached house with a side plot or garden.

The larger the scale of the extension, the higher the value. This type of house extension will require planning permission.

Wrap Around House Extensions Builders In Swansea

Wrap around the type of extensions is created by combining a side return extension and a rear extension together, creating L shaped wrap around the extension. They involve building the side wall closer to the neighbouring building border and moving the rear wall of your property into the rear garden, creating an L shaped house extension.

You could select to have an open plan wrap around extension in order to create a spacious and illuminated area. A wrap-around house could be great if you want an entire floor remodelling, an increase of your kitchen size, an additional dining room, a living room extension or to create an extra bedroom or guestroom.

Other additional benefits of this extension type are the high flexibility and the massive increase of value to your home. You can work out your value by using a calculator.

When you are planning a wrap round extension in Swansea there are various ideas and things you might want to consider such as the overall design balance of your home and the more disruptive nature of this type of extension. A few examples include a wrap-around conservatory, L shaped extension. As well as the right house extension builders to undertake the work.

An Over-Structure House Extensions Builders In Swansea

An over-structure extension is an extension over the top of an existing structure such as a garage, a living/dining room or kitchen.

Many Swansea properties (detached & semi-detached) built within the last 40 years, usually have a single storey side garage. This creates an opportunity for an additional extension on top of the garage.

This type of extension on top of the garage offers significant benefits. Compared to other extension types such as creating a large master bedroom with an en-suite. Or extend the kitchen with a separate utility room. Those options would allow to blend in with the house design and retaining the current garage.

Even though it is an extremely attractive extension type idea, there are lots of downsides to inform your house extension builders about:

If your existing structure has single-skin brickwork, it will not be sufficient to build over it as the new brick and block work above will be twin-leaf. Even if your existing structure has only single-skin brickwork it is possible to build over it by digging down through the garage floor and installing a new foundation and a new inner leaf. Alternatively, you would need to install blockwork 'piers' in the garage and fix a steel beam over the top.

  • To ensure the conditions of the foundations, you will need to dig a trial hole to investigate.
  • It could prove to be an expensive method to extend your property.
  • A building control permission will certainly be required.

Most Common Roof Extension Types, Shapes And Design

  • Butterfly roof
  • Dormer
  • Flat roof
  • Hip and valley roof.
  • Mansard
  • Hip roof

Swansea House Extension Builders’ Costs In 2021

While there are many factors that could affect the costs of an extension in Swansea, the most important factor to consider is the size of the extension. This is because size (generally measured as floor area) directly correlates with the total cost of the project.

You should, therefore, have a reasonably accurate idea of the size of space that you are looking to add or transform.

There may be planning policy issues to be aware of when deciding the size of your extension. Our Swansea house extension builder will be able to advise you of the likely maximum size possible under permitted development regulations (if relevant) or with a planning application for your property.

Once you know the required size of your extension, we can begin to estimate costs using some standard square metre rates. All the guideline prices listed below are for construction only, updated as of 2021.

House Extension Builders In Swansea Cost:

Single storey – A single-storey extension in Swansea will usually cost between £2,500 and £3,500 per sqm (£200 and £350 per square foot). £2,500 per sqm would represent cost-effective finishes and products. Elsewhere in the UK, you can expect to pay between £1,300 and £1,600 per square metre (£130 and £160 per square foot).

Two storey – To approximate the cost of a two-storey extension, add 50 to 60% to the guideline price of a single-storey extension. There are economies with two-storey extensions as only one set of foundations is required for example. Two-storey extensions can be more complex to achieve planning consent for.

Basement – Due to construction complexity and risk, a basement is more costly. A basement extension in London will typically cost between £3,000 and £5,000 per square metre (£360 and £470 per square foot).
