How many of the 110,000 extensions that the government has reported were completed from 2014 onwards were built by you? Not enough? Then be ready to respond to new interest from homeowners now that the government have made temporary rules permanent ones under the new Permitted Development right.

And we’re ready to help you make this most of this new ruling. EstimatorXpress 2019 estimating software has hundreds of templates for single storey hip, apex, flat roof and lean-to extensions (including wraparounds) – with countless permutations of roofs, wall finishes, flooring and internal fitting out.

Smarter than your average estimating software

Once you’ve chosen your extension, all the software needs is a handful of dimensions based on any specification preferences and unique labour, plant and materials prices. EstimatorXpress will then cost the entire building in minutes (approx. 30 minutes for an extension) and give you a quote in a single click. You even get an analysis of your projects via useful reports and graphs…automatically.

The Government’s announcement means homeowners now have the certainty to make plans to add a single-storey rear extension on their property of up to 6 metres for terraced or semi-detached homes, or 8 metres for detached homes.

Housing Minister Kit Malthouse MP said, “These measures will help families extend their properties without battling through time-consuming red tape. By making this permitted development right permanent, it will mean families can grow without being forced to move.”
