Average conservatory prices UK

You can purchase a conservatory for your home for a budget of between £5,000 and £20,000 including all materials and installation.

Many conservatory buyers find that local is cheaper and better quality. While some people look for B&Q conservatory prices, Anglian conservatory prices, and Conservatoryland prices when they first consider getting a conservatory, more often than not, they end up using a local firm.

The reason is, as was discovered by Which? in a 2016 survey, that there could be as much as a £4,000 difference in the price you pay a local company and the price you pay a national firm. Indeed, survey after survey finds that those looking to buy a cheap conservatory for sale will do better by staying local.


Lean to conservatory prices

The least expensive conservatory extension prices are lean to conservatories. If you're wanting a cheap conservatory for sale, this will likely be your best bet. But what is a lean to conservatory?

They are often called "dwarf wall conservatories". They're ideal if you have limited funds available or if you haven't got that much outside space. They're three-sided conservatories – they "lean to" your building, hence the name.

For a lean to conservatory with a dwarf wall, the price fully build would be…

Victorian conservatory prices

Victorian conservatories look stunning. With a Victorian conservatory, everything is about the view of your garden or your outside space. It uses a bay window type effect to afford homeowners these views. Victorian conservatories are usually considerably larger than lean to conservatories.

P-shaped conservatory prices

P-shaped conservatories are big so you'll need a lot of outside space to fit one in and to get the desired effect. They're almost like a cross between a lean to conservatory and a Victorian conservatory. Think of P-shaped conservatories as like having two rooms – one long room and a smaller one which is round in shape.

Edwardian conservatories are the second most popular conservatory installation type in the UK. They're generally rectangular which gives them an enhanced sense of space. They are particularly popular for bungalow owners.

Georgian conservatories are an adaptation of the Edwardian conservatory style. They tend to be slightly larger and many Georgian installations may need planning permission so please check with your local authority prior to commencing any work. You may hear Georgian conservatories referred to a hipped-back conservatories and reverse drop Edwardian conservatories.

Gable conservatory prices

Very grand-looking and elegant, gable conservatories are like Edwardian conservatories with much larger rooves. The roof allows the conservatory to be flooded with light – they're open, bright, and spacious. This splendour does come with a price tag however.

Conservatory prices fitted to your home

Conservatories continue to be a sought-after feature by home buyers for the extra living space they provide and for the quality of that living space. Phil Spencer, of Location, Location, Location, told the Daily Telegraph that a conservatory can add seven per cent to the value of your home, particularly if the style of conservatory you install is in keeping with the architectural features of your home.

If outside space is at a premium, building a large conservatory may knock value off your property because your home may be ideal for a family who want a garden area for children to play in. By no means should that stop you from getting a conservatory but if you plan to sell up in the next few years, make sure that what you gain by having a conservatory doesn't cause you to lose too much else.


Will the conservatory prices I'm quoted be less than the value it adds to my house?

That's a question a lot of installers get. Some homeowners worry that if they spend a certain sum of money on a conservatory that, when they come to sell their property, the rise in value is less than what they spent on their new conservatory. It's easy to see why this is an area of concern.

The best thing to do on these occasions is, when you have the quote you want to go for, ask a local estate agent what value the conservatory would add to the property price. If you're spending £6,000 on a conservatory but an estate agent believes that it will add £12,000 to the value of your home, not only will you enjoy the time you spend in your conservatory but it will represent a wise investment.


Conservatory prices fitted to your home – planning permission needed?

It depends. Most local conservatory installers will be very aware of the planning rules in operation by your council, so they'll be able to advise you when they visit your home to provide you with a quote. If you're in any doubt, please phone your local planning office for advice.

There are rules of thumb you can work to though. If you live in a terraced or semi-detached home, the conservatory cannot extend three metres past your back wall without needing planning permission. If you live in a detached house, this is extended to four meters.

In terms of the height of the conservatory, the maximum permissible before needing planning permission is four metres.


Should my installer belong to any trade body?

There are many different companies that will compete to build your conservatory for you. They'll help you choose the style, help you with planning permission (if needed), and work through all the costings with you in advance.

How do you choose the right one for you? Conservatory installers do not have to be registered with a trade body currently. However a large number of conservatory companies also install double glazing. Double glazing installers should either be registered members of FENSA (the Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme) or CERTASS (the Certification and Self-Assessment Scheme). If the companies that you are considering to install your conservatory also install double glazing it is well worth checking that they are either FENS or CERTASS registered.

Do you go local installer or national installer? With a national installer, you get the comfort of knowing that your purchase is protected by a big brand name. However, that brings its own problems. The big players are no longer as safe as they once were (think Homebase) and they have lots of bills to pay each month (wages, huge store rents and rates, sales staff, and more). As we mentioned earlier in this article, in their 2015 survey, Which? discovered that 70% of people bought locally and saved up to £4,000 by doing so.

More than anything though, make sure that you feel comfortable with the person you're speaking with and the company they represent before agreeing to go ahead with them.
