Transform your home's layout with bi-fold doors
 
Bi-Fold Doors Devon
There are a number of benefits to rearranging the layout of your home without the hassle of a major renovation or house move.

Adding bi-fold doors to the design of your home can help to create the idea of increased space by opening up a room within your home.

LISTED BUILDINGS
If you live in a period or listed building, you will need listed building consent from your local planning office, as well ensuring any changes conform to all necessary Building Regulations. Even internal changes need to be checked before work is carried out. For more information, head over to the Government's Planning Portal website, click here.
 
  BUILDING REGULATIONS AND PLANNING PERMISSION
 
  "As a rule of thumb, most building projects require building regulations for approval, even if it is only to knock down or move a wall."
 
Despite this, a small building project such as remodelling an existing layout may well not require planning permission but it is important to check before any work is started.

'With large panes of glass, sleek frames & modern functionality, bifolds offer a real wow factor to any home'
 
It is important to note that building regulations differ to planning permission in several ways. These include:

* Concerned with the appearance of buildings, planning permission relates to how changes to a building will affect the general environment

* In contrast, building regulations focus on the design and construction of the building to ensure that any changes made don't have a negative impact on the people using the building, in whatever way it is intended. Energy efficiency is also taken into consideration when looking at building regulations.

It is important to note that fitting bi-fold doors, knocking down and/or building internal walls or removing a chimney stack all require building regulations approval.

 
What's more, any work involving drainage and electrics also requires approval, which is especially important as both will form an integral part of a home's remodelling project. Once complete, a completion certificate will be issued which will need to be retained if you ever wish to sell your property.
 
  RULES AND REGULATIONS
FOR BI-FOLD DOORS
 
It is important to check whether you require Building Regulations approval, and/or planning permission if you are planning to install bi-fold doors at your home.

It is possible that you will need a supportive beam to be fitted above where the opening where you install your new bi-fold doors but a structural engineer will be able to assist.
