Expert Guide: The Costs Involved in Your Home Renovations or Extension

August 5, 2017

It’s probably the most common question asked when considering a home renovation or home extension: how much is it going to cost me. It’s also consequently, one of the most difficult to answer. There are so many variables that go into a home renovation or extension, which means the costs can change exponentially from project to project, as no two are the same.

A good builder will quote you a cost of your build, but that will require a meeting and lengthy discussion on the specifics of your plans. From things like raising your home and the size and shape of the renovation to adding on extra rooms and extending your kitchen, there are so many factors that go into the cost of your build and not all of them specific to you.

Materials have a cost, so if your project proposal is twice the size of a previous build your costs are going to be higher. Not only for the materials, but also for the extra time and trades involved in twice as much work. You see where we’re going with this?

The easiest way to calculate the cost of your home renovation or extension plans is to spend the time and discuss it with a builder in order to get a complete quote. There are cost calculators available online that you can source to give you a rough estimation, but they’re not recommended. It can be difficult to know the specifics of your build to add to the calculator, and the experience of a qualified builder will understand where the big costs are coming from and how they can help reduce it in other areas.
