Quick Tips from Smart Reno for Your Home Extension Project

Before starting any type of home improvement, you should sit down and define your needs. Planning a home extension is certainly no exception to this rule of thumb. Setting a clear understanding of the scale and scope of your project will save you headaches, time, and money. Surviving a home extension means staying focused; If you want to add a home office or a living room, focus on that and avoid getting distracted by any emergent problems and opportunities.

If you are planning structural changes to your home, such as removing walls or adding a second storey, it's absolutely crucial that you contract the services of an architect or structural engineer to ensure the structural integrity of your ambitions.

How Much does a Home Extension Project Cost?

The cost of extension work depends entirely on the unique circumstances of your original house. For exact estimates, please request a free quote from experienced contractors right here on Smart Reno Express. If you're looking for a ballpark estimate, expect prices to bear similarity to the following approximation:

Average National Cost of Building a Home Extension: $40,000

This can realistically halve to as much as double depending on the complexity of work, the type of addition you'd like, and what your current home and property can physically accommodate.

How to Keep Costs Low on your Home Extension Project

There are some ways to keep the extension cost down for building work. One is to keep it simple. Extra living space in the form of a living room or dining area does not require any special equipment or expensive extras to serve as a genuine enhancement to your total available living space. If you're considering a kitchen extension, you should compare the home extension costs with that of working towards a new kitchen in your current kitchen space.

Additionally, and somewhat counter-intuitively, adding a second storey is typically more cost effective than adding a floor-level rear extension, assuming no major work needs to be done to your foundation to support the added weight of a second storey. Lumber is cheaper than excavation, cement, and extra complications like damp proofing.

Also, consider that the national average return on investment for building projects of this sort is around 60%. It might also be worth considering the relative price of moving to a new house that accommodates your desire for increased space.

Home Extension Pitfalls to Avoid

Any home addition, including a single storey extension, could be affected by your municipality's building regulations and planning permissions. You will want to work with a contractor who understands permitted development rights to avoid triggering any unforeseen costs in dealing with your local authority.
