Prices have risen on average by 4.5% over the past year in the small works sector, although there is variation between trades. Resource cost increases due to the higher cost of raw materials, and Covid-19 and Brexit related changes to the production process, have resulted in rates rising between 4.19% to 5.52% for contractors working on domestic extensions. Loft conversions have increased on average by 4.63% over the same period.
