House Renovation Costs

How much does it cost to renovate a house?

House renovation covers many different aspects and hard to ballpark a price. Some renovations may just be décor and a small bit of building whilst others could involve new central heating system, building work, new kitchen, bathroom, roof, landscaping and decorating plus others things I’m sure. Hence, the prices provided below must all be looked at on an individual example by example basis to try and get an idea of what the total cost of a house renovation would be.
