House Extension Builders in Leeds

Glass box extension

Leeds has long been considered a jewel of the North and has benefitted hugely from redevelopment and regeneration works in recent years. A brilliant place to live due to its friendly locals, mass of amenities and facilities and its convenient transportation links, homeowners in Leeds truly understand what the communities in the city can offer.
As with all property ‘up north’, Leeds has been home to reasonably-priced houses for a long time but recent years have seen prices rise as demand increases. This means that homeowners in Leeds and the surrounding areas are opting more and more to extend their homes rather than move elsewhere to be granted more space. And Leeds’ most competitive house extension builders? Why, it’s Refresh Renovations, of course!

What are the trends in Home Extensions right now?

Home extensions are more popular than ever at the moment as homeowners find themselves unable to afford to relocate and instead choose to work with the space they have. In the last couple of years the Refresh Renovations Leeds team have worked on several side return extensions as well as extending kitchen-diners into open-plan spaces and even creating annexed bedrooms for let out on Airbnb to help generate an additional income for those living within the home. The team have also seen an uptake in clients approaching us with garden room ideas, ready to embrace outdoor living a little more!

How much does a Building an Extension cost?

It’s nigh on impossible to give a quotation for a new build extension without fully scoping out the entire build and internal design, which is why Refresh offers a free (no obligation) home visit for every client to scope out the works. As a ballpark, you can expect to pay between £1,500 - £2,500 per square metre for a single storey extension and £3,000 - £4,500 per square metre for a two-storey, however it is worth noting that is a shell cost only - and often homeowners don’t consider the potential internal costs of dry rooms, kitchens and bathrooms. Your Refresh Renovations expert will advise you along the process, and even supply you with a comprehensive independent build estimate prior to starting the build.

Why choose Refresh for Building an Extension?

Refresh has won awards for its end-to-end project management approach which sees a dedicated project manager oversee all parties and processes and take all of the hassle out of homeowners’ hands. This allows our customers to continue on with their daily life and work; and they can come back and enjoy the finished product at the end!

Will I need planning permission for an Extension?

Extensions within certain sizing and designations can be completed under homeowners’ permitted development rights. Where they extend out of this criteria, planning permission may be required – but this is included as part of Refresh Renovations’ standard service.
