Frequently asked questions and answers
We make every effort to ensure that information about our services is accessible and understandable. On this page you will find the most frequently asked questions. If you have any questions, please contact us by using the contact form.
When is a building permit required?
Home extensions up to 4 meters are generally not subject to a permit. In the meantime, you can apply for a permit if your home is located in a protected urban area, is a municipal or national monument or has a municipal ordinance. Our company can request for free the information about existing restrictions for you.
Can CBS Renovation apply for a building permit?
Our company works together with architectural firms that can apply for an environmental permit on your behalf. The cost of this service will be discussed with you in advance.
Is permission from neighbors or apartment owners required for the construction of an extension?
As a rule, permission for the construction of an extension is not required, but it is advisable to consult before the start, because the extension may affect their interests. If your home is affiliated with an Owners’ Association, prior permission from the other members of the Association (VvE) is required.
What effects on the duration of the work?
The timing of the work depends on the duration of the process of filing and reviewing the application for a building permit. The application is considered by the municipality within 8 weeks, which can be extended by the municipality once for 6 weeks. We can’t start construction until we obtain the permission. When ordering new windows, please note that manufacturing and delivery takes 5-8 weeks.
