There are a plethora of bungalow extensions to consider, which include loft conversions or an extension that goes out into the garden. Whichever you decide will have an impact on the final cost.
For example, if you are looking to install a medium sized bungalow extension, this will cost around £35,000 to £40,000.

In comparison to house extensions or garden roofs, bungalow extensions offer a cost effective option. But if you are looking to build your own extension, there are many factors that will increase the price. This includes the type of glazing used and planning permission. If you are looking for a rear extension for your property, this will be more expensive in comparison. This is because you could be paying between £35,000 – £45,000. A rear extension will connect seamlessly to your garden and is typically used for kitchen and dining areas. Due to the extra cost of fitting glazing and floor space, this will increase the overall price.
If you are looking to add a loft conversion to your property, then expect to pay around £30,000 – 45,000 because it could add 40 square metres of extra space. A new room will leave you with a bigger room, outstanding panoramic views, and plenty of natural light flooding into your property.
Other factors will be considered when you think about the cost of an extension. For instance, this includes how easy it is to access the site for scaffolding and where the skip will go. Furthermore, a side and rear extension will have the additional cost of the groundwork for the project. The groundworks are where construction workers prepare the ground for the extension to be laid. It will add to around 5% of the cost of the overall project.
There are other impacts on the cost of your extension as well. For example, the location is a key factor in how expensive your new build will be. At Select Extensions, we offer Leeds homeowners cost effective and affordable extension prices. Adding window and doors are the perfect way of bringing natural sunlight to your property, and we have a range of options for you to look at.
You will also need to consider what you are using the room for because this will be a factor in how much electricity you will use. If you are looking to convert your extension into a games room, additional costs will have to be made. If, however, you are converting to a new bathroom, then the plumbing costs will differ considerably.
After the building work has started, you will get to add your own personal touch es to the project. At Select Extensions, we offer a completely bespoke service which lets you customise the project however you want by adding patterned glazing or choosing the frames in different colours. Alternatively, you can decorate yourself, which will take longer, but significantly reduce the costs.
