How long does it take to complete a development house extension on your property?

Extending your home isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition. Because your construction experience will be unique to you and your house, it’s critical to plan and manage it carefully in order to make it a success. There are many factors to consider – building regulations, trade costs, space required for conversion/extension, planning permission etc.

Whether you choose a wrap-around extension, or a glazed single or two-story expansion, there are some critical things to get right no matter what your project is.

How do you go from drawing your ideas to seeing them realised if you’ve never constructed extensions before? Who do you approach first? What is the best way to budget? What should all potential extenders be aware of?

Before you start building a new addition to your home, make sure you’re up to date on local and national construction news that might affect your project, from supplies to trades and planning changes.

Building material shortages and price spikes, as well as a shortage of HGV drivers, are all making headlines in the building industry. The construction sector is being impacted by a dwindling supply of crucial building materials such as roof tiles, cement, and wood, and prices have risen across the board.  The deficit is projected to persist, which will have an impact on the trades you wish to hire (who are dealing with Covid backlogs, increased demand, and material shortages), as well as your budget, as inflated costs affect trades, forcing them to pass the cost on to you, the customer.

Clients can experience building delays since the material and labour markets are still so variable. In times of high demand, quotation lead times are a little longer than usual.

Because more clients are aware of the price increases throughout the country, projects where a client may have obtained quotes from individual trades and project-managed the build themselves are now seeking comfort and advice from quantity surveyors. As a result, this is something to keep in mind before your home extension should be built.
