If your looking to build a new extension, or carry out some internal alterations, or does your property in Poole Dorset require some renovation work? Well you have come to the right place.

We at R.T. Property Improvements have been in construction work for more than thirty years and we are very proud of the projects that we have completed for our many discerning clients, we specialise in small to medium sized building and renovation projects and we look forward to provide to you our customary friendly service and high quality of workmanship.

Extensions are unsurprisingly a popular home improvements project in Poole and in the surrounding areas and for very good reason, an extension can transform your lifestyle, help improve your quality of life and at the same time add value and greater buyer appeal to your home should you plan to sell at some future point.

Extensions are also the ideal solution if you want to avoid the costly and stressful process of moving home and especially if you have worked hard for many years to get your home just the way you like it, why give all that hard work away when the solution to your lifestyle problems may well be an extension, or even some internal alterations to help improve the layout of your home.

An extension to your house would not require planning permission as long as certain conditions were met. You should however check with your local planning authority to check that PD (permitted development) rights have not been removed; other consents may also be required if your house is listed or if for example you are living in a conservation area.

Extensions are considered to be (controlled work) and as such it is a requirement to make an application to your Local Authority Building control department for building regulations, we of course would be happy to make this application on your behalf.

Another popular home improvements project would be a garage conversion; a garage conversion is a great way to add as much as ten percent to the value of your property and is also one of the most cost effective ways of adding extra space and there are various options on how you might use the extra space, these can range from an office or study, a bedroom or even a bedroom with an en-suite shower room, a kitchen or a utility room or even a home cinema room. In most cases planning permission is not required to convert an attached or an integral garage as again the development would be considered as being Permitted Development, but you should check with your local planning department just to confirm and in case you are living in a conservation area or if there any covenants place on your property, in this case planning permission may well be required.

To convert a garage into a habitable space this work is also classified as being (controlled work) and therefore you would need to make an application for building regulations approval and again we would be happy to make this application on your behalf in order to make the whole process much more straight forward for you.

We carry out various other construction projects such as Porches and Conservatories and we would very much welcome your enquiries, so if you are planning a project right now then please call us today for your free and detailed quotation.
