A new tool has been launched with the aim of enabling homeowners and investors to quickly calculate the cost of building an extension on a property.
The free service, which comes from Plus Rooms, is in calculator form and users simply choose their property type, desired extension/conversion type and roof type to be provided with a quote.
Once the information has been provided, the tool calculates the cost which includes an estimate of all building work as well as plumbing, electricity, glazing and external doors.
"[Our] 3D costed models make it straightforward for the homeowner or buyer to see what they would get – and budget for the project," says James Bernard, director of Plus Rooms.
"[The] prices are based on what we would charge for the works, rather than an estimated market price, so people can have confidence in the costs we are providing.”
