A conservatory is a big investment to your property, so it’s important that you feel as that you have secured the best value for money when buying a new conservatory.

Energy efficient conservatories

Thanks to significant advances in technology, it’s now easier than ever before to optimise energy efficiency in your home, allowing you to make big savings on your energy bills and improve your carbon footprint.

And in order for your conservatory to add value to your home, it’s vital that it is energy efficient. With this in mind, this should be a top priority when it comes to choosing materials, as these will determine how energy efficient your conservatory is.

But that’s not all; your conservatory is a space that should be enjoyed all year round, and one of the best ways to control the temperature of your conservatory is to opt for energy efficient glass and materials, which will keep your conservatory cool during the summer months and warm during the winter months.

After all, temperature regulation is key when it comes to creating a functional space that you and your family can utilise like any other space inside your home.

Energy efficient glass and materials are also ideal for reducing heat loss and retaining the winter sun, meaning you won’t have to rely solely on your heating system to keep your home warm. Energy efficient conservatories are also a great option for reducing the glare from the sun during the summer months, so you won’t have to install air conditioning, or rely on the use of a fan to keep you cool and comfortable.

And remember, when it comes to choosing your energy efficient conservatory, the greater your window’s energy rating is, the more efficient it will be.

But how does energy efficient glass work?

Energy efficient glass consists of two sheets of glass, which have been filled with gas in order to improve thermal insulation and form an insulating barrier.

This means that you will not only be able to create a warmer space, but you will also be able to reduce your carbon footprint, enjoy a more environmentally friendly home, reduce condensation and lower your energy bills! So it’s a win-win for your pocket and the environment.

Advantages and disadvantages of having a Conservatory

Advantages of having a conservatory

Over the years, conservatory sales have continued to soar, mainly because more homeowners than ever before are realising the substantial value and space a conservatory can add to your property, without the costs and hassle associated with moving home.

Here’s a closer look at the advantages of having a conservatory…;

  • Additional living space
  • Increase the value of your home
  • A huge variety
  • Introducing more light
  • Additional living space

    Additional living space

    One of the main advantages of a conservatory is the additional living space it provides, allowing you to create a new and exciting living environment that the whole family can enjoy.

    And whether you turn your conservatory into an extra bedroom, a dining area, office, family room or even a functional storage room, it’s sure to become a sound investment, especially as extra space can significantly increase the value of your home.

    Increase the value of your home

    Increase the value of your home

    Adding a conservatory to your property will instantly increase its value, and is considered as a major selling point for potential buyers. So if you are looking to add value and function to your property – add home value with a conservatory!

    A huge variety

    A huge variety to choose from

    Houses come in all shapes, sizes and styles and the good news is- conservatories do too! This means that you will be able to choose a conservatory that suits the style of your property. Read our guide about the different conservatory styles and find out the differences between conservatories and orangeries here.

    Introducing more light

    Introducing light into your home

    A conservatory is a great way to introduce light into your property, allowing you to enjoy a massive dose of vitamin D in the comfort of your own home.

    The disadvantages of a conservatory

  • Temperature control
  • Privacy
  • Size
  • Maintenance
  • Cannot be converted later
  • Temperature control

    Temperature control

    Keeping a conservatory at a comfortable temperature can be a struggle, which is why energy-efficient glass is so important. This is because so many homeowners report that their conservatory is too hot during the summer months and too cold during the winter months, meaning they don’t get a chance to make the most out of the space all year round.

    Privacy

    Privacy

    Privacy can sometimes be an issue with some conservatories, especially those that are made completely from glass, or if your garden is overlooked. Again, this can be easily resolved by investing in blinds, or curtains.

    Size

    Size

    If you are working with a small budget, you need to manage your expectations when it comes to space. As budget conservatories offer less space than those at the higher end of the price scale.

    Maintenance

    Maintenance

    All conservatories require regular maintenance, just like the rest of your home. Keeping on top of maintenance will not only allow you to prevent a build up of algae growth on the roof panels, leaks and other wear and tear issues, but it will also allow you to make sure that your home is always aesthetically pleasing.

    Cannot be converted later

    Finally, due to the nature of the build, a conservatory cannot be converted into a single story extension at a later date. This is because the foundations will already be too shallow.

    Why you should invest in a conservatory now?

    As we mentioned above, conservatory sales are at an all time high and they are continuing to increase in popularity. But that’s not all; conservatories are also more affordable than ever before, making it the perfect time to take the plunge and build your dream conservatory. Take a read here for everything you need to know about getting a new conservatory.

    In fact, there have been a growing number of companies that have reported that conservatories are one of their biggest selling products. And here’s why!

    Offer an inviting and unique garden perspective
    A conservatory is a great way to enjoy your garden, allowing you to watch your garden change with the seasons, from a comfortable and useful space.

    Enhance the light in your home
    A conservatory will instantly enhance the light inside your home, allowing you to create a bright, light and inviting space that can be used season to season.

    Offer improved comfort and aesthetics
    Thanks to energy efficient glass and materials, conservatories are now more comfortable than ever before, and you needn’t worry about your conservatory being cold in the winter or unbearably hot in the summer.

    Versatile
    Another reason why so many people are opting for conservatories is due to their versatility and home extension customisation options. The possibilities are truly endless and you can create a new space that works for you and your family. Find out about the most popular conservatory styles here.

    So whether you’re preparing to welcome a new family member, or your home is starting to feel crowded and claustrophobic, a conservatory is an affordable way to create the space that you need.

    Cheaper option than moving home
    And finally, many people decide to move house when they have outgrown their home, which can be costly, stressful and often unnecessary, especially when you can simply create the space you need by extending your home instead.

    What type of conservatory should you choose?

    The type of conservatory that is right for you will depend on a huge range of different factors, but mostly the size of your property, your individual needs and the style of your property.

    However, two of the most important deciding factors are the style and roof type that is right for you and your property.

    Get a FREE quote

    Here’s a little more information about the different types of conservatories that you can choose from:

    Lean-to conservatories – these are the cheapest conservatories that you can buy and they boast a simple but functional design. Their small design makes them a great option for smaller homes and bungalows and they are the perfect choice for homeowners working with a small or restrictive budget.

    Victorian style conservatories – these are a great option for both period or modern homes and boast a number of functional and attractive features including a bay front, pitched roof and an ornate roof ridge.

    Edwardian conservatories – you can’t miss an Edwardian conservatory due to its distinctive rectangular shape and four separate pitches. Again, this type of conservatory will complement and enhance both traditional and modern homes.

    P Shaped and T Shaped conservatories – if you are lucky enough to own a larger property, P-shaped and T-shaped conservatories are a great option due to the amount of space that they are able to offer!

    Does a conservatory affect your House Price?

    Extending your living space is always a good idea, especially if you are actively looking for ways to increase the value of your home.

    For example, industry research has revealed that the standard price of a conservatory varies between £5000-£30,000, and it can increase the value of your home by around 7 percent!

    However, to maximise the value of your home, it’s important that you make sure that the conservatory actually matches the style of your property, which is why it’s important that you do your research when it comes to choosing the right conservatory for you. After all; a ugly conservatory that does not complement the rest of your home can actually make it difficult to sell your property and even decrease the value of your home.

    And remember, a conservatory can be built in as little as a week or two, making it one of the quickest and most cost effective ways to increase the value of your property!

    Do I need planning permission for my conservatory?

    Whether you need planning permission or not to add a new conservatory to your home depends whether your potential conservatory would be considered a permitted development or not. Adding a new conservatory to your house is a permitted development subject to certain limits and conditions.

    As conservatories tend to be reasonably modest in size they can generally be built without planning permission.

    We have tried to simplify the guidance provided by the Government for permitted development rights for householders but make it specific to conservatories.

    You can view the Government information by going to https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/permitted-development-rights-for-householders-technical-guidance

    We would always suggest getting a few quotes from conservatory installers because they will be aware of examples local to you where homeowners have and haven’t needed to apply for planning permission.

    What is a permitted development?

    Permitted development rights mean that you can perform certain types of work to your house without needing to apply for planning permission. If you are sure that your conservatory is a permitted development you do not need to apply for planning permission. For the period 2013 – 2019 the Government increased the size limits allowed for conservatories / extensions to your house. The aim was to protect the interests of neighbours and the wider environment and to allow you to carry out the development work.

    A simple summary of what falls under a permitted development

    1. If your property is listed or in a conservation area you would need to apply for planning permission.
    2. The conservatory (including any previous extensions) must not be larger than 50% of the total area of land around the original house. The original house is defined as when it was first built or as it was on 1st July 1948 (if it was built earlier than that date). If you have any sheds or outbuildings that must be included when calculating the 50%.
    3. Your conservatory must not be at the front of the house (principle elevation) or fronting on to a main road.
    4. If your conservatory is going to be on the side of your house it cannot be bigger than 50% of the width of the original house. A conservatory on the side of your house must also be single storey and no higher than four metres.
    5. A conservatory, at the side or the rear of the house, within two metres of a boundary the eaves (the edges that overhang the walls) can be no higher than three metres.
    6. Single storey rear conservatories must not extend further than three metres of the original house if the house is attached. If the house is detached the three metres increases up to four metres.
    7. Any rear conservatory must not exceed four metres.
    8. The eaves of the conservatory are not allowed to be any higher than the eaves of the existing house.
    9. The highest part of the conservatory can be no higher than the roof ridge line (the point where two opposing roof planes meet) of the existing house.

    The above nine points are based on our interpretation of the latest planning legislation in relation to conservatories. Please don’t view the information as a source of legal information. Hopefully it helps you to understand in principle whether or not your potential conservatory does or does not need planning permission. If you have any doubts you would be well advised to get in touch with your local planning authority and to receive some quotes from conservatory companies that have experience in your local area.

    Your questions answered

    What materials can you use to build a conservatory?

    Conservatories can be built with timber, aluminium or uPVC. The latter material here is the cheaper of these options. You will want to consider the look and feel of the conservatory style you would like, and choose the best material at the right price.

    How much do conservatories cost?

    The price of conservatories can start at around £6000. This cost will depend on the style, shape and size of your conservatory.

    How long will a conservatory last?

    Conservatories can last between 10-30 years. This will depend on the materials used. A uPVC conservatory will last around 20 years on average.

    What is the difference between a conservatory and an orangery?

    The main difference between an orangery and a conservatory is the roof. Over three quarters of a conservatory roof is glazed while an orangery has less.

    Which type of conservatory is best?

    You should consider the size of your property and garden when deciding on the best type of conservatory. Any size, shape of style of home can benefit from a conservatory, and all types have their advantages. It is important to find the right fit to work with the rest of your property for a cohesive look and feel.

    Do I need planning permission to replace my conservatory roof?

    If your conservatory still meets the Building Regulations requirements and approval that it did when it was built, you shouldn't need planning permission. But it is a good idea to check when you replace your conservatory roof.

    Do you offer a guarantee or warranty for the products and services I eventually buy through your suppliers?

    We are not responsible for the standard of work carried out by the suppliers that provide you with quotations as a result of your enquiry via our site. There is no warranty provided by us, implied or otherwise for the products or services provided by any suppliers that you contract with. Individual suppliers may offer their own warranties, but these and any standards of workmanship are not in any way associated with Leads 2 Trade Ltd. or its partners.

    Keeping your details safe…

    We take the security of your data very seriously from the outset. Our web address is HTTPS. (HyperText Transport Protocol Secure) This is the protocol used to access a secure Web server. We use https:// as the prefix to our Web address rather than the common http://, so that your session is managed by a security protocol and the transmission of data is encrypted to and from the Web server.

    Secure certificates (SSL Certificates) are in place. These are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organisation’s details. These allow secure connections from a web server to a browser. SSL is used to secure the transfer of your data to our server.

    Our server is protected by a firewall. Log in details are securely shared internally between employees.

    Any personal data held in our database is encrypted. If there are any security breaches, your data is encrypted and therefore secure.

    Each supplier to whom we pass your information in order to provide you with quotes has contracted with us to keep your data safe and use it only for the provision of a quote and, if selected by you, to provide the product or services you require.

    We always have contracts in place with the companies that we pass your details on to both to ensure that they will keep your data secure and that they comply with the rules of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which we also operate within.
    Please be assured – we will not use your details for marketing or use or pass your details to third parties other than as described in this statement without explicit consent from you.

    Finally, please note that the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

    Lawful basis for processing your data

    We rely on your explicit consent to process your personal data. This means that we ask you to consent to the following use of your data:

    Business users only

    We will email or text you about similar products and services. We will only do this if you haven’t opted out of receiving such emails or texts.

    To create custom and lookalike/ similar audiences

    We like to work with Facebook, Google and other platforms (“Platforms”) to reach out to you with adverts for Other Products. We also like to use Platforms to reach out to other people who might like to use our quote request service.

    We do this in two ways. In both cases, your data, along with other data, is used to create a custom audience and/or a lookalike/similar audience. Whenever an audience is shared with a Platform, the data is first hashed and pseudonymised, meaning that any data within the audience that could identify a person is replaced with an artificial identifier. So, the process is secure. Also, we don’t share more data than we need to for the purpose of creating the audience.

    Transfers of data outside the EEA (European Economic Area)

    We share your personal data within our business and with data processors who can find suitable product and service suppliers for you. Your data will then be used to enable suppliers to provide quotations and potentially move towards a contract with you.

    Some of the suppliers that may offer products and services to you are based outside of the EEA.

    We transfer your data as detailed above with your consent.

    Data Retention Policy

    We keep your personal data for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is being processed. This is to reduce the risk that it will become inaccurate, out of date or irrelevant.
    We ensure that your personal data is securely disposed of when no longer needed.

    What are my rights in relation to the personal data that you hold?

    Your rights are embodied in the contract formed between us when you visit the website (as subsequently augmented when submitting your personal information and, if you are called, when speaking on the phone) and as contained in the General Data Protection Regulations 2018 – also known as GDPR.

    If you have any questions or concerns please first read this section of the statement and then email our Data Protection Officer on privacy@comparecompanies.co.uk, They will be pleased to assist before as well as after you may have provided personal information to us.

    You may also write to our Data Protection Officers either at our registered office address stated at the outset of this statement.

    If you need more information about data protection you might contact the Information Commissioner: see https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/email/

    The GDPR provides individuals with the rights in relation to personal information about themselves which is held by us as summarised in the table below.

    Some of the rights are unlikely to be of practical use. For example, if you wish for a copy or correction or cessation of use of some or all of your personal data we, our suppliers and our other introducing companies are likely already to have eradicated it from our or their system given the short periods your date is retained and its limited use.

    Nevertheless, the GDPR principle of transparency in particular provides you with the right to enquire and to be informed and we briefly set out all of the rights here. Further information about the rights and the circumstances in which they apply may be obtained from a number of published sources and from our fact sheets which are available on request.

    Information Right – you may require us to provide a more detailed explanation of how we collect, process and use your personal information.

    Personal Data Access Right – you may require us to provide an electronic copy of your data free of charge.

    Personal Data Correction Right – you may require us to correct your personal information as held by us.

    Personal Data Erasure Right – you may require us to permanently erase the personal data that we hold about you.

    Data Processing Restriction Right – you may require us to stop using your data for particular purposes such as mailing or profiling.

    Data Processing Objection Right – you may require us to suspend using your data if for example it is incorrect or you simply wish to withdraw your consent.

    Data Portability Right – you may require us electronically to transfer your personal information to another supplier, for example to facilitate switching.

    Automated Decision-Making Right – you may require us not to make decisions about you relying solely only on a computer decision.

    Breach Notification Right – if in the unlikely event there occurs a breach of security which is likely to result in a high risk to your rights as a data subject, we must inform you without undue delay.

    How else can we help?

    Rights aside, if you have a change of heart and do not wish us to pass your information to potential suppliers or another introducing company please let us know immediately by email or, should we call you, during our phone conversation and we will remove your information from our and their systems.

    You are not bound to enter into a contract with any supplier that provides a quotation to you and can unsubscribe from any communications related to your enquiry from them or us at any time.

    If you have any questions, please email privacy@comparecompanies.co.uk.
