How much do builders cost in Ipswich?

Builders tend to charge on a project basis as opposed to by the day, so we recommend getting a range of quotes for the work you need and comparing to give you an idea of how much your project will cost.

As a ballpark guide, extensions, for example, typically cost between £1,300 and £1,600 per square metre. That amounts to around £30,000 for an average extension (not including the cost of finishing work like installing kitchen units).

You should also ask about additional costs such as skip hire, scaffolding, obtaining planning permission or applying for any compliance certification needed according to building regulations.

How can I check if a builder in Ipswich is reliable?

We check out builders’ qualifications and experience before accepting them to the MyBuilder network, meaning there is a whole host of reliable builders who have a proven track record available to you.

It’s also worth doing your homework and checking a few things before you decide to hire a builder for your project. Here are some questions to consider before shortlisting a builder for your job:

  • Can they show you a portfolio of similar work?
  • Can they provide references?
  • What kind of reviews do they have on MyBuilder?
  • Do they offer a payment plan?
  • Do they offer any aftercare?
  • Do they have any formal qualifications or accreditations?

For more advice on finding a reputable builder in Ipswich, we’ve put together a building hiring guide.
