Hello and welcome to Job Prices.
My name is Claire and I created this site with my partner Danny so consumers can get an idea of how much home improvement and maintenance projects cost in the United Kingdom.
Gauging how much a task will cost is often very difficult and many of us don’t want to invite tradespeople or pushy sales staff into our homes when we’re only looking for a ballpark figure.
Use our price guides to help budget and plan future projects or as a comparison to prices you’ve received from businesses.
On many of our pages, you’ll find polls and feedback forms where you can let other visitors to this know how much you think a project should or will cost.
Danny has been working in the construction industry for many years, first as an employee, and then as a small business owner. He now renovates properties and part of this work involves estimating how much certain projects will cost to complete.
I previously worked as a project manager in London and have experience in delivering complex projects on time and to a defined budget.
While neither of us is a chartered surveyor or evaluator, we have plenty of experience in dealing with tradespeople and businesses in this sector.
Over the years we have learned how to calculate the going rate for many common jobs, hence how we came to the idea of creating this website.
Here on Job Prices, you will see a breakdown of the costs involved for a specific project, such as materials, labour, VAT, waste disposal fees and profit margins.
You can use this as a guide, making adjustments for the specifics of your project.
We are fully aware that different companies will have different pricing policies but we believe our research can be a good starting point, although we encourage you to read our disclaimer

Danny is also keen to help former ex-forces personnel who have fallen on hard times, so you’ll find guides, hacks, hints, tips and several pages dedicated to the ex-forces, such as this one which is a good place to start.
Danny owns one cat, one rabbit, a tank of fish and one dog along with several resident hedgehogs in his garden. Check out his Pet Corner which looks in detail, at how much it costs to own a pet for its entire life.
Danny has also been working on new home improvement cost calculators where you can quickly and easily get a realistic price for many projects including fencing, roofing projects, driveways and much more.
