Read Fairtech Contracting Ltd’s latest blog post find out how you can save money when designing and building your brand new extension.
Keep The Design Simple
If you ask this architects Warrington, never has there been a truer phrase than ‘less is more’. This is most definitely the case when it comes to extending your home.
Keeping your extension design ideas simple in nature will deliver the best results and protect your pocket in the process.
If you live in a period property, you may well find that your choices when it comes to extensions are limited anyway, but we recommend using simple ready made features rather than made to fit features.
This way you will save yourself money and time!
Save on Valued Added Tax
Many extensions will carry with them a 20% VAT bill which will apply to all of the labour and materials. However, if you used self employed tradespeople, you can save on the VAT bill if they earn under the threshold.
Also any sort of second hand materials that you can track down will already have the VAT paid for, try to pick some up on the internet to use in your build.
Speak to your architects Warrington about how you can save on VAT with your extension.
Avoid Cowboy Builders at All Costs
Now we know that this one is easier said than done as cowboy builders are essentially con men and skilled at duping people. However, if you speak to an architects Warrington such as Fairtech Contracting, we will be able to recommend credible workers that are not out to rip you off but rather provide a great service.
Negotiate for Trade Prices
It’s no secret that those in the trade get discounted prices from wholesalers and suppliers of building materials. It is however, not known that these types of prices are actually significantly less than prices for the public.
Negotiating and achieving the trade price can be difficult, if you speak to your architects Warrington- Fairtech Contracting Ltd, we can help you source materials for the best price at trade standards.
