A cost guide to side infill extensions
Side infill extensions are a great way to open up unused spaces and utilise natural light, often used to complement London Victorian or Georgian style properties. A glass side infill extension can seem costly, however, the common alternative is dark, unused storage areas or completely wasted space. But how much might an addition like this cost?
The starting price for a glass extension of this nature would be approximately £7,000 for a simple glazed link, or for a small glazed area. When considering costs do bear in mind that due to the bespoke nature of glass structures, it is not simple to provide generic estimated costs for glass structures as the costs depend on the design, size, shape of the glazing panels, the project location and various other factors.
It is increasingly popular to incorporate a window or door into the glass structure to open up living spaces and improve access to the rear of the property, particularly those with a garden. Adding a window or door may also allow the property to benefit from the maximum natural light throughout, bridging the gap between indoor and outdoor living. The cost of incorporating a window or door into the structure would vary dependant on models and sizes desired, as a cost guide the glass for this would take the price closer to £12,000.
As far as planning permission goes, providing it’s a considered extension at the rear or side of a property, your glass extension shouldn’t require anything different than a regular extension would.
