To support new and returning customers, we answer some of the most commonly asked questions that we receive below.
DO HOUSE EXTENSIONS REQUIRE PLANNING PERMISSION?
Depending on the type of work needed for house extensions, you may not require planning permission from your local authority for Corby. There are instances, however, where the local authorities will definitely need to grant planning permission. These include building an extension higher than the tallest part of the home, constructing raised platforms or balconies and planning house extensions that take up more than half of the land on your property.
To help us ascertain if you need planning permission, we carry out a full inspection of the site during our consultation or help with applications based on the specification of your chosen architect.
WILL I HAVE TO HIRE AN ELECTRICIAN FOR WORK ON NEW BUILDS?
What makes LSP Builders a leading building contractor for the Corby area is an ability to complete various trade work for our customers. Removing the need for secondary main contractors, we can offer a range of services including carpentry, joinery, electrical, plastering, decorating, plumbing and heating work. This helps us to keep control of the project, the budget and the timescale.
Whether you need to use us for new builds, house extensions or garage conversions, we provide the extra services you need to support our building and construction services.
ARE YOUR HOUSE BUILDERS FULLY QUALIFIED?
We only take on experienced and fully qualified tradesmen. Our contractors and house builders hold qualifications to NVQ and City & Guilds standards. As a company, we have received full accreditation to the Federation of Master Builders. We have passed their strict criteria and an in-depth assessment to become a part of this prestigious regulatory body.
Our qualifications and accreditations make us a trusted building and brickwork contractor for the Corby area.
DO YOU OFFER A DESIGN-AND-BUILD SERVICE?
Yes, we do. LSP Builders can join your project as early as the design stage. We complete a full assessment of the site and provide a design blueprint that will best utilise the land or workspace. We are also happy to work with your own architect to a project specification. Flexibility of service is important and we can help you as a main contractor, a subcontractor or a project management specialist.
Customers and clients in Corby choose us as a building contractor and house builder because of our full and inclusive services.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GARAGE CONVERSIONS?
Garage conversions are a cost-effective solution for homeowners needing more space. Because the foundations of the build are already in place, converting your garage is a quicker alternative than constructing a new build. Unless you’re planning on making the space habitable, garage conversions won’t require planning permission. This makes the entire process more fluid from start to finish.
Instead of using garage conversions as habitable space, many of our customers in Corby use them as improved storage areas, hobby rooms and specialist workshops.
I DON’T KNOW HOW TO BEST USE MY BUDGET. CAN YOU HELP?
Absolutely! As part of our project management service, we analyse the scale of the project and compare it to your proposed budget. We take your requirements into account and explain how to best utilise the funds. LSP Builders will source the best materials for the job while keeping in line with your needs and means. Our building contractors, brickwork contractors and house builders never use substandard materials, even on builds in Corby with a lower project cost.
This is your reassuring guarantee of a job well done that will stand and perform for many years.
IS MY HOME SAFE AND SECURE WHEN YOUR WORKMEN ARE ONSITE?
Safety and security are of the utmost importance to LSP Builders. During each stage of the job, your project manager informs you who will be on site and what their responsibilities are. Our house builders undergo CRB checks, come to sites in Corby with the appropriate identification and carry CSCS cards at all times. We also make sure that any subcontractors or third-party tradesmen we use are suitably accredited and qualified.
We never use subcontractors we don’t know or trust.
