Reviews

We chose Allerton Windows for our extension. From Stephen the salesman at the start to Tony the builder and everyone that has worked on it, it's been a 1st class job. Nothing was ever too much trouble, from phone queries to face to face with Tony, everything was professionally done and every trade person we had who has worked on the job have been brilliant. We are over the moon with our new extension it looks amazing, it's a dream come true really. Thanks to everyone at Allerton Windows for making such a big job seem so seemless. I would highly recommend Allerton Windows to anyone and will be doing in the future. Thank you.

In February 2020 we finally decided to go ahead with our long term plans for an extension and new kitchen. The plans in our mind were to completely transform our kitchen, dining and seating are. Then the world was hit by COVID and things were quickly put on hold. I had a few builders and contractors in mind to complete the work when we could. I followed Allerton Windows projects on social media and was impressed with their feedback. As lockdown (1) lifted I asked 4 different companies to give me a quote. 2 failed to recall me, one made an appointment and didn’t arrive, however Paul from Allerton Windows arrived on time and was excellent in talking through my ideas giving guidance. Within 2 days I had a full estimate which was broken down into exact detail of what we would be paying for. On agreement we were only asked to wait four weeks whilst the drawings were submitted before a start date was given. The project was planned for 8 to 10 weeks. We are now complete and despite all that’s going on in the world we are absolutely overwhelmed with the final product, the quality of work. More importantly is to mention that all trades people and the staff at Allerton Windows have been excellent. Everything we imagined has come to fruition. The skill and dedication of all the workers has been without fault. Tony and Paul have always been on hand for advice and nothing seems to have been any trouble. We have had numerous friends and neighbours ask for details of Allerton Windows, where I would normally hesitate in making recommendations for such large projects, I have no problems in pointing anyone to Allerton Windows, they have been fantastic and again especially in such uncertain times. Thanks Robbie and Helen

I have recently just had a total house renovation undertaken by Allerton Windows. After getting many other quotes off other firms, I found Allerton Windows to be very competitive. They covered the whole project from start to finish this included; building work, full re-wire, plumbing, plastering, tiling and garden landscape. I went to their showroom in Bootle and that confirmed my decision. The person I dealt with was very knowledgeable and kept me well informed throughout the renovation, I cannot fault Allerton windows. I would highly recommend them for every aspect of building work.

We have recently had our extension completed by the team at Allerton Windows and we are extremely pleased with the end result. The person I dealt with has been great throughout the whole process - checking on progress and helping us throughout with and questions or queries. All of the workmen involved in completing the extension were professional and friendly and all work was completed to a high standard. We would happily recommend Allerton Windows to anyone based on the service and quality of work we have received.

After having several companies quote for our extension we went with Allerton due to the amount of positive reviews and the person's knowledge and honesty. All the options were explained and there were no hidden costs. We were provided with a start date and they arrived the day before to check there were no access issues. They began work on 05/11/19 and finished on 04/12/19, every day we were informed what would be happening the day after. We were so impressed, all the workers were helpful and answered any questions. I can’t fault them and would highly recommend them. Thank you.

FAQs

  • How much does a house extension cost in the UK?
  • A house extension can cost between £20,000 and £70,000 + VAT. This range of prices is representative of different styles of extension, for example, your house extension would cost more if you were adding a bathroom or kitchen and a second-storey extension would also push the cost up further.

  • Do I need planning permission for a home extension?
  • You will need planning permissions for a home extension if the size of the extension is more than half of the land around the original house. Or, if your home is being brought nearer to a public highway, or if you plan on building higher than the tallest point of your home. You'll also need planning permission if you're planning on using materials different to those currently used in your home.

  • What is the maximum extension without planning permission?
  • The maximum size extension you can build without planning permission will depend on the size of the land around your original house. When building without planning permission your extension can be no larger than half the area of land around your original house. Single-storey rear extensions must also be no larger than 3 metres if semi-detached or 4 metres if detached.

  • How much does it cost to have a single-storey extension?
  • A single-storey extension can cost between £20,000 and £40,000 + VAT, however, this price could increase depending on the complexity and size of your project. You may pay between £1,200 and £1,500 per square metre for your extension, so a small 3 x 5 metre single-storey extension could cost as little as £18,000 + VAT, depending on the materials used.

  • Is it cheaper to do a loft conversion or an extension?
  • A loft conversion is usually cheaper than an extension. The cost of new foundations and roofing typically make house extensions more time-consuming and expensive than loft conversions, however, in many cases, they add more value and practical use to the homeowner.

  • What is the most expensive part of building an extension?
  • The most expensive parts of building an extension are usually the roofing and the foundation, as building these requires the most manpower and time. Building a two-storey extension can offer better value to those with the funds who are willing to maximise the space in their home.

  • Can I draw my own plans for building regs?
  • You won't be able to draw your own plans for building regs, as these plans should be professionally drawn in order to satisfy the local authority building council if their approval is needed. Hiring an experienced firm to manage your extension build can help you quickly navigate any problems that might arise from seeking planning approval.

  • How do I build my own extension?
  • Building your own extension requires a great deal of planning and time in order to get right. Designing a functional house extension that also looks great is not a simple task, and managing the construction of your extension can also be a job in itself. Assess your own skills, abilities and constraints before deciding to self-build your extension and weigh up the benefits of paying a professional to take on the work for you.

  • What is a house extension?
