You can trust Go2 Homes to transform your home and lifestyle.
The cost will vary depending on a range of factors including the style, fittings and foundations. You should also consider how much disruption and time the style of extension will take and what arrangements you will need to make to accommodate builders.
When gathering quotes, you will need to have a clear concept of what you want. You will
need to outline if it is a second story addition, home extension, home additions or you need a
custom home builder. Each style of extension will have different costs associated with them
because they will need different materials, equipment and industry experts.
The best place to start is to look at examples, like the ones in our gallery and develop a
really good idea. Do this before you start gathering quotes. The clearer your vision, the
more likely it is that you will be able to compare ‘apples for apples’. Often the cheapest
quotes have hidden extras, or they aren’t really offering you what you want.

The value of your extension can be considered from two main perspectives: the financial
investment and the human investment.
The main financial gain is the opportunity to improve the value on your home. There is a
large initial outlay with an extension but often it will be returned in the resale of the house.
Everything that you do to a home to improve it is going to help with resale, but a quality
extension will usually improve the valuation by around the same cost of the extension itself.
When considering worth, you need to really think about the purpose of the extension and the
ways in which it will make the experience of the home better. Only you can put a price on the
human investment. There are endless benefits to your home when you are providing more
space or a purpose-built extension. These additions can improve the resident’s quality of
life. Can you put a price on the adult getaway or a granny flat for your elderly parents?
Check out the Go2 Homes gallery to get ideas on what options are available and to start
considering the return on your investment.
Building up, you need to consider the size of your home and how it will fit in with the flow of the building, setbacks from boundaries, overshadowing / overlooking of neighbours properties, the existing structure and cost of access.
Building at ground level, you will need to consider the space you have available and the setbacks from boundaries. In both cases you will be need to consider access to the site, excavation or
demolition and potential removal of hazardous materials.
Really the only way to know what is going to be your most cost-effective method is to get
professional advice. Extension specialists will have the knowledge needed to truly weigh up the cost and time required.
