The area and layout of the house does not always suit its new owners, and the question of adding additional premises is often raised. The most important thing is to determine the cost of such an enterprise and, accordingly, the allocation of the budget. Here everything is determined by the materials used, the scale of construction and the need to attract external specialists. Also, sometimes it may be necessary to demolish old premises or parts of them, which is described in detail here /en/demontazh-zdanii/.
Average cost and what you can save on?
Many experts and consultants of construction companies immediately give such an extension figure as $ 1,000 per square, taking into account the foundation, walls, roof and minimal finishes. However, knowing when and where to buy building materials can significantly reduce the price. For example, if for the owner there is not much difference between tiles and the usual slate, then you can save on the roof, and on other elements. You also need to get to the moment of the cheap sale of building materials, which falls on the winter months. Already from the beginning of March, there will be a rise in prices by 30-50%. Of course, you can’t buy cement in winter, but cinder block, slate, finishing materials, etc. can be found at a good price.
Factors affecting the cost of an extension
When calculating the budget of the planned premises, it is worth calculating the price of materials and work for the following elements:
foundation – the depth of grounding, the type and weight of the planned structure, the high cost of materials (stone, timber, etc.).P.);
roof – its configuration and the possibility of using the attic as a residential space are important, which significantly increases the cost of the extension;
walls, floor, ceiling – the total area of \u200b\u200bthe luggage is considered, and the issue of insulation and vapor barrier must also be resolved;
