Good to Know

How much will it cost?

Home extensions and pricing seem like a dark art sometimes.

We know quotes and estimates can vary wildly, often the final price bears little resemblance to the initial estimate you went with.

This is why we won’t price a job unless you have planning permission AND full drawings. We just don’t believe in the finger in the air technique, we also won’t price down to catch customers. We want you to get a good job, with an excellent finish and a fair and HONEST price upfront. We always recommend a reasonably sized contingency budget, because all builds throw up some surpri犀利士
ses. However, experienced you are.
