How much do builders cost in Harrogate?

Costs for building work can vary quite a bit depending on the nature of the work and the materials you choose to use. To give you an idea, if you’re planning an extension you can expect to pay roughly £1,300 to £1,600 per square metre.

It’s important to note that this may not include finishing work like installing kitchen units or worktops. And you’ll need to factor in hire costs if you need a skip (around £200) or scaffolding (usually between £400 and £900).

How do I know if a builder in Harrogate is reliable?

MyBuilder’s transparent reviews system lets you look through feedback from other homeowners. All reviews on our platform are from previous customers, and over 97% are positive.

  • Ask for references from previous clients
  • Ask if you can see a portfolio of previous work
  • Ask for a detailed quote with a breakdown of materials and labour costs
