    Without seeing the condition of the property or a detailed brakedown of what the spec/plans are, it's pointless putting a figure on things, but I can tell you from first hand experience its a lot more expensive than you think.

    An entirely new roof should cost you no more than about 7-8k.

    Getting mine for about 5k, mates rates.

    Get quotes from 3 or 4 builders in your local area. You can't get any sort of accuracy from some bloke on the internet who hasn't seen your property and isn't a builder.

    Try and find honest recommendations from friends and family for builders to use.

    Also the Polish work there arses off, are relatively cheap and skilled.

    I haven't seen the property but I am a builder, I own a building and joinery company.

    The rest of it is sound advice.

    I was thinking of getting a dorma roof extension on my house (with en-suit) fully decorated and was told £20k, so I'm thinking either that's too high, or refitting the house for £60k is a bit low.

    Sound advice indeed. Sounds like the advice that I posted on the last page.
    Except the bit about the pricing.

    Sorry I wasnt aiming at what you said just at those trying to price work, which is utter nonsense.
