Why choose Refresh for a build project?

This leaves the homeowners free to continue with their lives with the least possible disruption but the best possible result.

Will I need planning permission for my build project? 

While some residential building works can be carried out under Permitted Development Rights (PDRs), there are instances where proper planning permission will be needed.
