There are plenty of reasons to extend your home. You might want to turn a functional kitchen into a cosy space where everyone feels welcome. Or you may prefer to add a separate dining area. Perhaps more living space is your thing.

Why should I extend my property?

Extensions are a great way of expanding your living space without having to sacrifice any comfort. It can provide extra living space for you to enjoy your home. It also offers a whole host of benefits.

An oak framed extension adds value to a home. However, choosing oak frames will increase the resale value of your home. Since oak is one of the most popular wood choices for framing homes, this is a wise decision.

An extension should be considered a part of the original structure. It shouldn’t look like a separate entity. When designing an extension, think about how it relates to the rest of the house. Make sure that the extension doesn’t detract from the overall appearance of the house.

Oak is a beautiful choice for an extension. It complements many different styles including flat roofs, pitched roofs, mansards, timber and glass. Whether you prefer traditional or contemporary design, oak has something to offer everyone. Our team of experts can provide you with advice on what type of wood would be best suited to your home.

At Premier Oak we love the combination of glass and oak in an extension, it adds just character yet modernisation to your home, meaning an extension by us will suit more an old build or a new build.

Why use oak for an extension?

Our clients often ask us why we choose to use oak frames for an extenstion rather than alternative materials. We believe there are several reasons why our clients prefer oak framed extensions:

  • Environmental Benefits – Oak is one of the oldest trees in Britain and is renowned for being hardy, strong and resistant to decay.
  • Quality – Oak is naturally rot proof and does not require painting or staining.
  • Durability – Oak is extremely durable and weatherproof.
  • Design – Oak is a timeless material that looks great in every home.
  • Value – A well built oak framed extension will increase the value of your home.

We can help you choose the right size extension for your needs. If you need a little bit more room, we can create a smaller extension. Or if you need more space, we can make your extension bigger. Whatever your requirements, we can accommodate them.

The sustainable way to enhance your home

Oak is eco-friendly. The carbon captured from the atmosphere by oak trees is bound into their fibres over many years, before being chopped down and then made into a house, where it will remain permanently.

It doesn’t require large amounts of fossil fuel to produce, much industrial reprocessing, or chemical treatments which are harmful to the environment, as some other woods or materials like brick and concrete require.

How to use an oak frame extension

They can be used for many different purposes, including:

  • Adding extra bedrooms or bathrooms
  • Creating additional living areas such as a study or gym
  • Increasing the size of your kitchen
  • Creating a new family room
    Adding extra storage space
  • Improving access to existing rooms
  • Creating a multi-functional space

If you want to add extra rooms to your home, consider an oak frame extension. These structures are usually built around an existing room; therefore, they do not require planning permission.

If you already live in an old farmhouse, you could use an oak frame extension to turn it into a modern family home. Alternatively, you could convert a garage into a guest bedroom.

An oak frame extension is essentially a box attached to the side of the existing building. Therefore, it does not affect the roofline of the original structure. You can choose to incorporate windows and doors into the new addition, which gives it a unique character.

What do I need to know about my property prior to building an oak framed extension?

There are several things to think about when planning your extension:

  • Is there enough space for the extra living area?
  • Do you have any specific requirements?
  • Do I need planning permission?
  • Will you need to demolish anything?
  • Do you want to extend onto a garden patio?
  • Are there any structural problems with the property?
  • How big is your budget?

We would recommend that you get a professional surveyor to carry out this initial check. They will be able to advise you on whether you need to demolish any walls, floors or roofs. They will also be able to tell you what type of heating system you may need, how much room you need for the extension, and if you need to add insulation.

Do I need foundations for an oak framed extension?

Foundations are not required for most oak framed extensions. However, if you have a slab floor, or one that is uneven, then a foundation may be necessary. If this is the case, then we would recommend using a professional builder who specialises in foundations.
