How Much Does a Conservatory Cost?

When you're considering having a conservatory built, you need to carefully weigh up the practicalities of such a project by considering:

    • Price. What will it cost? How will you pay for it? What additional costs might be involved, such as building/cosmetic work to the adjoining conservatory site, tidying up the garden, furniture etc?
    • Payback.How much value will it add to your house? How can you use your budget to maximise the selling price of your house so that your investment is worthwhile?
    • Practicalities. How much planning is required by you? Will you have to temporarily rearrange the way you live or alter the layout of your home? Will you require planning permission?
    • How long it will take?When do you want it completed by? How will the weather and time of year affect building timescales?

Will Your Investment Pay Back?

Adding a conservatory to your home will make your home more appealing to potential buyers, often making it sell faster and sometime for more. Strictly speaking however a traditional conservatory with no thermal enhancements is not classed as ‘habitable space’ and does not add to the footprint of the house.

Using thermal enhancements from Ultraframe like Ultraroof, Livinroof, Ultrasky roof, internal pelmets or super-insulated columns can make your conservatory thermally efficient enough to be classed as an extension.

According to the Estate Agency Survey, extensions can add between 5% and 7% to the value of your home, but those with a significant amount of natural light flooding through the roof will add significantly more value at around 10%
