House Extension Cost Survey 2022

house extension cost survey 2022

A house extension is the best way to add extra space to your home. There are many reasons why you might like to add a house extension. These include extending your kitchen, adding an extra living or dining area, adding an extra bedroom, adding an office or adding a play area to name a few. If well planned with the help of your architect/engineer and builder, adding an extension can also be a good opportunity to improve comfort and functionality,  let in more light, improve the energy rating and reduce your heating bill.

Recently we did a House Extension Cost Survey with some of our tradesmen. The question was how much would it cost to build an average 40m2 single story rear extension excluding VAT with apex roof finished to a good standard and ready to furnish?

Custom Kitchen and Wardrobe Price Survey 2022

Custom Kitchen and Custom Wardrobe Prices

When renovating a kitchen or bedroom, you can choose a ready-made solution or you can go for a custom solution.  A custom designed solution has the advantage that it can be built to fit the layout and design of your kitchen or bedroom to exact the dimensions. This means you are not restricted to cabinet sizes, designs or colours and you can make the most out of the space you have.

A while ago we did a survey on custom kitchen and custom wardrobe prices for our blog. We asked tradesmen how much including materials and labour would it cost per foot, excluding vat, to make 1. A custom fitted wardrobe and 2. A custom fitted kitchen. We also asked if they had any tips for the customer on having a good experience with the tradesman.

Laminate Flooring Price Survey 2022

laminate-flooring-price-survey

Laminate flooring is an option worth considering in rooms where you have a lot of traffic so you need something that is easy to clean and will last a long time.  It is extremely durable and protected by a tough external layer and resin coating.  A laminate floor is stronger and more scratch-resistant, impact-resistant and longer lasting than solid hardwood, vinyl, or carpet.  For example in our own home, we have it in the sitting room for over 20 years and there’s not a mark on it.

Recently we carried out a quick price survey among some tradesmen who are registered on our website. We asked them to give a rough price to fit a laminate wooden floor. In addition to this, we asked if they had any tips for getting the best job done. We have attached a sample of the replies we received below:- Continue reading
