    What materials will be on the sloping roof? Tiles? Slates? Felt?

    It will be a tiled roof.

    Forgot to say in my earlier post that the builder that is currently doing my extension has quoted 8k. Just seems a bit steep considering the price for the extension...

    Thanks!

    yike! 8k?? I'm having some major restoration done to my house which requires the removal of the old porch. I've got the builders down to 2.5k on a replacement (original quote was 3500), re-using the existing uPVC door from the old porch and replacement small double glazed window to one side.

    Forgot to mention, it's standard building regs size, 3 sq metres? Bigger means planning permission, so that might be bumping up your price.

    Yikes was my first thought as well!!!

    I prefer your quote thats for sure....

    We already have the planning permission so that can't be the problem.

    forgot to mention even more - the 'average' for a porch (brick, uPVC door and frame, tiled roof, electrics, etc.) is between 3-4k. I had 3 different builder's quotes for the restoration, each quoted 3.5k for the porch.
