How To Budget A Home Extension
The most stressful part about planning a home extension is budgeting, so how best do you budget a home extension? As experienced contractors in Surrey, here at NBC construction, we are going to break down the best way to plan for and budget your home extension.
How much does a home extension cost?
A common question asked when planning a home extension is how much will it cost? Unfortunately, there isn’t really an answer to that question without getting a quote from a construction company. The cost can vary hugely, based on several factors, such as, whether you are planning a single or double-storey extension, how big you want the extension to be, whether it will include a kitchen or bathroom and if there are any complex site constraints. There are a range of free home extension cost calculator tools available online to give an initial idea of how much it will cost.
How To Stay On Budget
Reuse and recycle to reduce costs and help the environment. Anything from old floorboards, radiators and kitchen units to doors and windows can all be touched up and reused. Not only saving on material costs but also reducing costs for skip hire and disposal. Furthermore, why not try selling anything you no longer need, want or can’t recycle. It’s surprising how many people will buy on sites such as Facebook Marketplace, Gumtree and eBay.
Talk To An Estate Agent
Before going ahead with your extension, consider speaking to an estate agent to see how your plans could affect the value of your property. Extending your property should substantially increase its value but it’s always worth checking. You ideally want to make sure that the increase in value exceeds the cost of the build or at least breaks even. A net loss is never a good idea. It also helps the cost of a home extension to not look so daunting when you see it as an investment for the future and can help you receive a tidy profit.
