A conservatory or orangery’s average price can vary significantly, depending on the design you choose, its size and that of your property, where you locate it and the materials you use.

Here’s a round-up of some of the things which can affect your budget:

  • Size

Perhaps understandably, this is one of the biggest factors when it comes to cost. And, as with anything else, clearly, the bigger your extension, the more materials will be needed, and of course this affects price.

When it comes to deciding on size, clearly you will need to take into account how big your property is, where you are going to build your home improvement, and how much extra space you need, as well as what your budget is.

  • Design

Of course, there are various conservatory designs to choose from, each one with a different price tag. Talk to us to discuss which one best suits your home – and your budget.

  • Materials

Once again, the options vary:

Frames – Most people choose aluminium or PVC, with a few going for timber. The design you choose may affect which material you go for. Longer-term maintenance costs may also be a factor – wood, for example, will need to be repainted over time, while aluminium and PVC tend to be lower maintenance.

Walls – Fully glazed, full height or dwarf walls? Again, there’s plenty of choice, and much may depend on the location and style of your property, but prices will vary. Full height glazing, which goes well with bi-folding or sliding doors, is becoming increasingly sought-after.

Roof – Glass or solid or a combination of both? Yet again, quality and type of material used will have an impact on price. You will need to think about what you want from your space, and the various roofing materials’ thermal performance, as well as the siting of any roof lights.

Finally, if you want any extra features to create a warm, bright extension you’ll love using all year round, factor these options into your budget too. These could include, for example, internal lighting, underfloor heating, ventilation or decorative columns or external cornices to hide guttering.
