Despite only starting in 2014, Lanhill Construction has quickly made a name for itself as the premier bespoke property renovation experts for Sevenoaks residents. Not only can a builder from our team create and fit a luxury kitchen in your home, we can also provide you with a house extension, tailored to your requirements. On this page, we have looked to answer some of the questions we most frequently receive from Sevenoaks; however, if your question hasn’t been answered below, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01622 437 694 to speak to one of our construction specialists.
What separates you from other construction companies?
At Lanhill Construction, we feel that the dedication to consistent exceptional results and meticulous attention to detail a builder from our firm brings to every renovation project in Sevenoaks makes us local industry leaders. We believe in only the best quality of service, whether working on a luxury kitchen or a house extension, and our home improvements are built to last.
Once you’ve built the shell of my luxury kitchen, will I have to call an electrician & plumber?
No! Amongst our team of four, not only is every member a qualified and experienced builder, but we also possess a plumber, an electrician and a tiler amongst our full-time staff. This makes us the complete package for the building and fitting of a luxury kitchen in your Sevenoaks home. Not only can we transform your walls and surfaces, but we are also able to fit ovens, sinks, dishwashers, fridges and any other appliance you may require for your dream luxury kitchen.
My home’s in a bit of a state of disrepair. What property renovations can you carry out?
We can perform a wide range of property renovation work. From garage and loft conversions to roofing repair and replacement, and from windows and doors to brickwork repair, patios and driveways, we are a one-stop shop for any and all renovation work on your Sevenoaks property. No job is too small for us, and all work comes with generous guarantees and emergency callouts available.
How long will it take to get planning permission on my house extension?
The whole process usually takes between eight and 12 weeks. The design process, during which a builder from our team will produce intricate structural drawings and produce a project management for Sevenoaks clients, will take two weeks. Planning permission for your house extension can take six to eight weeks, and following that building regulations approval may take a further two weeks to complete.
Certain types of house extension can commence without approval of a planning permission application. This includes a porch up to 3m², certain conservatories and orangeries and, in some cases, a single story house extension. We recommend that you submit the structural drawings that a builder from Lanhill produces to the Sevenoaks Local Planning Authority for written confirmation of your rights. In most cases, a successful building regulations application will also be required.
