HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO RENOVATE A TRULLO?

27 February 2019

Buying a trullo in Valle d'Itria is the dream of many: living the unique experience of a house without corners, with a cone-shaped roof made of chianche arranged in sheets, immersed in unspoiled nature, has attracted, over the past years, more and more foreigners, fascinated by these strange dwellings. It is no coincidence, for example, that well-known personalities from the world of entertainment, industry, and fashion have found in the Apulian countryside their second home: just think of Raz Degan who lives in Cisternino, Kean Etro who has a complex of trulli in Ceglie Messapica, Mara Venier and her home in Ostuni.

This growing interest, also of the inhabitants of the area, has led to a surge in purchase costs. Generally, the costs range from 30-120 thousand euros for rustic houses to be renovated, with electrical wiring and fixtures to be redone, up to 250 thousand euros and more for renovated properties.

The advice is to invest in a house to renovate relying, possibly, on a turnkey service. Facing renovation has its advantages:

- It allows you to customize the home according to your needs and tastes;

- It allows you to obtain important tax advantages;

- It ensures - in most cases - better energy efficiency and greater thermal insulation;

- In the vast majority of cases it can be economically more convenient than buying a renovated property.

But how much does it cost to renovate a trullo?

We asked Francesco Serra, the third generation of a family of master trullari who for 40 years has been carrying on, with passion and professionalism, the company Edilserra, becoming a landmark in Puglia in the renovation of trulli.

"Generally, the cost of turnkey renovation of a trullo is around 1500/2000 euros per square meter. This rough figure includes a whole series of works such as:

- the renovation of the cones (through the technique of scuci e cuci, strictly handmade and the replacement of ruined chianche);

- excavations, cavities, and crawl spaces;

- masonry works: renovation of arches, creation of connecting rooms, emptying walls, straightening internal and external walls; plastering, sandblasting, and fogature of stones;

- installations: sewage, water, electrical and thermal;

- laying of floors and other coverings.

In this amount, however, are excluded floors and wall materials, sanitary ware, and fixtures.

These figures ensure the customer not only very high professionalism of the workforce and a wise and careful choice of materials, but also the peace of mind of working with a company that operates in the most total legality."
