2023 - Movements in Extension Costs in Dublin and Elsewhere

    Hey folks,

    I’ve been reading around on the threads, and am trying to get an overview of where the market is now.

    2022 saw some eye watering quotes for extensions due both to the cost of materials, but also a heavy backlog on construction after COVID. Many have been hoping that prices in 2023 would ease off - while others said there would be no chance of that.

    Can anyone share any insights or figures? Are prices still eye watering, and have people even been able to get quotes?

    Thanks to anyone — with good news or bad!

    I’m at the start of the extension process in Westmeath. I’m very interested to hear current experiences too!

    No job is the same so it has to compare apples for apples.

    I am going through an extension at the minute in South Dublin, which involves

    1. Garage conversion which involves a new roof
    2. 15 sqm extension
    3. demolition of old extension
    4. understairs bathroom
    5. various walls removed and new door openings etc
    6. garden works
    7. Windows / Doors / Rooflights
    8. PC sums
    9. Steel work

    My first quote was 310k which was eye watering, the second quote was in the region of 200k. I had ball parked it at 150k based on no experience and when the quote was broken down it seemed reasonable.
