Material prices

Although many of the builders merchants are a bit coy about publishing their prices, partly because of their obscure discount policies, here are a few price guides for building materials from suppliers on the internet. This may help with pricing up smaller self build jobs. With larger jobs you may be able to negotiate discounts.

VAT refund

With most types of domestic self build you can claim back the VAT on building materials at the end of the job. However there are several exceptions (such as a granny flat) and it pays to read the HM Revenue and Customs guidance notes on this.
