The most common question we are asked is how much their solariums cost per square meter / foot. We try not to be vague when answering, but here are the key things to know about terrace prices in Dublin.
It’s not practical to price these jobs by the square foot and there are many reasons, just consider a few of them. A 12 m2 sunroom and a 9 m2 sunroom will have the same amount of plumbing and electrical work, both must have a radiator, multiple plugs and lights, the 12 m2 sunroom is a third larger but will not have 1 and 1 /. 3 radiators.
Many costs will remain the same for both sizes, the container may not be as full for the 9 square meter solarium, but the same will be charged. If both sunrooms are the same width, they will both require the same work and lead to make the connection to the wall of the house airtight. Why should it cost one more?
The cost will depend on the standard of insulation in the floor, but no one mentions this, so what if different companies specify differently?
The type of ceiling will have a big impact on the cost of the room, the Ultrawarm ceiling is the cheapest, followed by the concrete tile ceiling followed by slate.
The number of Velux is dictated by the shape and size of the roof and the light requirements for the interior of the house, the more Velux, the higher the cost.
Access from the house may already be there in the form of a back door or patio door, or it may require a window and wall to be removed to create an opening, or in some cases it may require a full blow and installation of RSJ. All of these jobs cost different amounts to complete.
In my experience, the customer should expect to pay a minimum of € 20,000 for a Sunroom with the norm in the price range of € 25,000 to € 30,000 for a medium size. For larger builds, expect to pay between € 130 and € 150 per square foot for a higher specification including VAT
So to calculate the actual cost of your new sunroom in Dublin, you need to do the following
Visit a showroom and decide on the right size and layout
Make an appointment with a qualified surveyor who will know which solarium is best for your home.
Create a list of the specifications you need
Invite bidders and shop around, but remember that it is valuable to have the peace of mind of knowing who you employ, follow your instincts, and hire someone you can trust.
