How much does a house extension cost?
The cost of a house extension in the UK can vary widely depending on several factors, including the size of the extension, its complexity, the location of the property, and the materials and finishes used. It's difficult to provide an exact figure without specific details, but I can give you a general idea of the costs involved.
On average, a single-story house extension in the UK can cost between £1,000 and £2,500 per square meter. For a double-story extension, the cost may range from £1,500 to £3,000 per square meter. These figures are rough estimates and can vary significantly.
Other factors that can affect the cost include:
Design and Architectural Fees: These fees typically range from 10% to 15% of the total construction cost.
Planning Permission and Building Regulations: There may be fees associated with obtaining planning permission and complying with building regulations.
Structural Work: If significant structural changes are required, such as removing load-bearing walls, additional costs may be incurred.
Finishes and Fixtures: The choice of materials, finishes, and fixtures will influence the overall cost. Higher-quality materials and finishes tend to be more expensive.
It's important to note that these estimates are based on average costs, and prices can vary depending on the region and the specific circumstances of the project. It's advisable to consult with architects and contractors who can provide more accurate cost estimates based on your specific requirements.
How much value does having an extension add to your house?
The value that a house extension adds to your property can vary depending on several factors, including the size and quality of the extension, the location of the property, and the current housing market conditions. Generally, a well-designed and well-executed extension has the potential to increase the value of your home.
According to various studies and industry experts, it is commonly suggested that a house extension can add anywhere from 10% to 20% to the value of your property. However, it's important to note that these figures are approximate and can vary based on the specific circumstances.
The type of extension can also influence the added value. For example, adding an extra bedroom or bathroom tends to have a positive impact on the value, as these are desirable features for potential buyers. Additionally, extensions that create more open living spaces, such as kitchen extensions or open-plan living areas, are often well-received and can add value to a property.
It's worth considering that while an extension can increase the value of your property, the actual market value will ultimately be determined by various factors, including the overall condition of the property, the location, and other market trends. It's always advisable to consult with local estate agents or property valuation experts to get a more accurate assessment of the potential value increase specific to your property and location.
