Depending on how much you can pay, sunroom extensions can be built according to your needs, style and requirements.

Over-structure Extension

It is a type of extension which is carried out over an existing structure which could be a kitchen, living room, dining room or garage. This extension has great benefits if built on top of a garage. Moreover, some older garages have a single brick wall unable to carry the load of another building. If that is the case, you will need extra structural work to strengthen the original wall structure.

Dormer Extension

If your attic is full of junk and clutter that you do not need anymore, then a dormer conversion is a great option to consider. It involves extending a boxed-shaped structure to a pitched roof. It opens outwards and upwards to provide extra floor and headspace. This extension rarely needs planning permission and can be built at affordable prices compared to other types of extensions.

Porch Extension

Although you cannot create a new room or a kitchen with this extension, it is extremely popular among many homeowners as it not only increases the aesthetic of a property but also adds value to the property. This idea is worth considering if your front doors directly open to your living room. This is the easiest type of extension to carry out.
