MODEL COST GUIDE: RAIN­WA­TER GOODS

Build It - - RENOVATION & BUILDING -

The prices in this ta­ble have been cal­cu­lated for a typ­i­cal two-storey, medium sized prop­erty of­fer­ing around 125m2 of liv­ing space. We have as­sumed a con­ven­tional half-round pro­file of around 112mm. De­signs such as deep-flow or dec­o­ra­tive ogee will cost more. These in­dica­tive prices ex­clude VAT and

builder’s profit. The life­span costs per year are in­tended for quick com­par­i­son only – they don’t ac­count for the price of fu­ture main­te­nance work. Note: Self build projects qual­ify for zero-rated VAT on labour and ma­te­ri­als (the lat­ter will be re­claimed on com­ple­tion), but ren­o­va­tors and ex­ten­ders will usu­ally need to pay the stan­dard 20% rate on both as­pects.
