Conservatory - How Much Will it Cost?

Most bespoke conservatories installed by specialist suppliers usually forming a division of the replacement window company as well, can be just as expensive as having a properly built house extension when extending a property into habitable room space for example.

It must always be remembered that a conservatory is not considered to be a habitable room under Building Regulations so why, I often ask, would anyone consider a ‘bolt on’ conservatory when the cost is near the same as for a ‘proper’ house extension that will outlast the conservatory & probably be a better use of space?

Every home owner asks themselves how much will a conservatory cost and one sure way of ensuring that you are obtaining like for like prices is to have your own conservatory extension drawings prepared by your own design agent. You can then punt these schematic designs around to the various suppliers an installers.

How much a conservatory will cost is very much dependant upon the quality of the framing, glass, extent of foundations or wet trades and access to the site area. Many gardens have restricted access that may require a lot of hand excavations or lifting over obstructions using a crane for example.

If you really want to keep your conservatory costs down you can always consider purchasing a conservatory kit from the likes of Wickes and other DIY suppliers.
