EXTENSION FAQ

How much does an extension cost?

Do I need planning permission for an extension?

Will an extension add value to my home?


A calculator has been released to help owners estimate how much value building an extension will add to their home.The calculation is based on the latest Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures measuring the average cost of a property per square metre – an area about the size of a red phone box – in each local authority in England and Wales The report reveals that a medium-sized extension of 25 square metres currently adds an average of £59,000 to a property price. The estimations are only a guide — the actual value of an extension will also depend on the quality of the construction, what type of room the extension houses and the exact location of the property within a local authority.
