Attic Conversion Prices Dublin Ireland

attic conversion prices dublin irelandHi folks,
we did a quick survey of attic conversion prices with some of our tradesmen in Dublin today.  The question was how much would it cost to add an extra bedroom in the attic.  Here is a sample of the replies below:-

Chris M: Approx 35 k depending on specs.
Cathal S: On average about 12000 to 16000 + vat
Jason W: Around e11,500-e12,500
Derek K: approx cost including heating + wiring done properly to proper speck 12500 + vat
Nicky C: Could be up to 5.000 with the bath, or can exceed
Graham B: Its about 10 to 12 grand but really depends on a survey. Could go up or down
Keith D: 9,900 approx at the moment, regards keith
Kevin B: Average around e12,000 I suppose
Joseph C: Twelve thousand in and around
Stephen L: 15-20K thousand depending on spec
Bob M: it depends on what finishes are required but approx 10k including materials
Jacek K: 12 k
Eddie T: probably around e16,000
Nicky B: About e8000 but would depend on the type of roof, apex or hipped
Aaron G: Between 18k and 21k depending on the stair location which sometimes can mean relocation hotpresses, pipework and electrics.
James B: It would start at around 10k for a basic open plan and it works on from there
Liam D: Estimated e7000 average
Thomas J: 18K
Aidan B: 20k average

As you can see there is a wide variation.  I hope this helps some of you who are considering an attic conversion sometime in the future whether you want to make more room for the children or you want to make money by letting out an extra room.  If you decide to go ahead with it be sure to post your attic conversion job here and get up to 4 quotes from rated tradesmen.

Cheers
