How much does it cost to build a house extension or loft conversion in London?
There is no fixed price, you just can’t nail it. Robuild builders take many factors into consideration and hopefully we can show some transparency about how the estimates/quotes work, when asking Robuild to give you a price.
It is very important that you as a customer understand fully how the process works. Most good builders are not educated,have the social skills or marketing skills for that matter. The best builders can’t even have a decent conversation, they are not paid for this , nor are they interested in small talk about weather unless there is a roofing job going on.
Let’s start with the beginning.
Mr and Mrs Family live in a 2 bedroom house with their two children. They feel that some extra space would improve their social life and buying a new and bigger house is not an option.
Is this a good investment ?
We don’t know. But most house extensions and loft conversions add value to the property.
Let’s build a house extension or convert the loft
At this stage, Mr and Mrs Family are trying to find out how much it would cost .Can they afford the building works ? Mrs Family makes a good point by saying that the garden is not big and a loft conversion makes more sense than a house extension. Mr Family wants to know if a house extension is cheaper than a loft conversion.
Call the builders
No. Don’t call the builders. Call the Architects.
The builders can’t give you a price based on small talk and high hopes. You need drawings/plans. The builders then can give you a professional quote. Based on drawings, printed on paper or PDF format. This way we can all speak one language.
How do you get a good London Architect ?
We don’t know the answer , yet again. However, we can tell you how it works.
Most architects and builders are running some sort of a cartel. When a customer contacts an architect , the architect will ” recommend ” a builder. When a customer contacts a builder – yes, they will ” recommend ” an architect.
Does Robuild use the same practice ?
We have no architects. They have no Robuild. Not good for getting new customers and contracts though. But we do ” recommend ” an architect based on your budget if it’s needed. There is also the Permitted Development law. It means that sometimes you only need an outlined plan and you save monies.
