Average Conservatory Prices: How much does a conservatory cost?
Whether you’re looking to flood your home with natural light or just simply looking to create more usable space, installing a conservatory holds a whole host of benefits.
But how much does a conservatory cost?
In the United Kingdom, the average cost of a conservatory is around £4,900 but the final price can vary depending on many factors such as the style of conservatory you choose or the size of the conservatory.
The material you choose will also have an effect on the final cost. For example, a 3.5 x 3.5 Edwardian conservatory in wood can cost anywhere from £13,500 to £15,000. Whereas, an Edwardian conservatory of the same size in uPVC is considerably cheaper at between £9,000 to £11,000.
When it comes to installing a conservatory, prices can vary from company to company, so it is important to compare prices before deciding on an installer. It’s not uncommon for a small company to charge £4,000 for a conservatory whilst a larger commercial company to charge £9,000 and vice versa. So by shopping around and doing your research, you will be able to find the cheapest price.
How much does it cost to install a conservatory?
The size of the conservatory you wish to fit onto your home will have a significant effect on the average price. A small conservatory can range between £4,500 to £6,500 but can rise to anywhere from £50,000 and above the bigger you go. This wide range in final price reflects the varied price unique to your specific requirements.
The main factor that will influence the final price of your conservatory is the style that you choose. Despite other factors that will inevitably change the final cost, the style of conservatory you opt for will have the greatest impact on the financial cost.
Looking at a 3m x 3m conservatory, the prices would be:
|uPVC conservatory style||Average conservatory price|
|Lean-to||£5,650 – £7,500|
|Victorian||£7,900 – £10,400|
|Edwardian||£7,900 – £9,900|
|P-shaped||£8,400 – £10,400|
|Orangery||£13,900 – £49,900|
These prices, however, are estimates as different companies may charge differently for their installation services.
On top of the above prices, certain factors may increase the initial price such as the roof options you choose (e.g. if you want to add a tiled roof) or if you add a roof lantern.
Conservatory Roof Options
As mentioned, the type of roof you choose for your conservatory will have a direct impact on the overall price of your desired conservatory.
In terms of conservatory roofs, there are numerous options available – one being a conventional polycarbonate roof with double glazed windows.
A glass conservatory roof is a perfect option for maximising the amount of natural light your conservatory lets in. A glass conservatory roof is also more aesthetically pleasing than a polycarbonate roof for example.
With this comes a higher price tag, a glass roof can cost 3- 4 times more than a polycarbonate roof. However, despite this, a glass roof can reduce your energy bills due to the increased sunlight that it lets in, helping keep your house warmer.
A polycarbonate roof is a much more affordable option in comparison to other conservatory roof counterparts. A polycarbonate roof is also quick and easy to install and, therefore, saving further on costs.
However, more and more homeowners are opting for a solid tiled conservatory roof and it is clear to see why. A tiled conservatory roof not only better insulates your conservatory but will subtly blend in with the exterior of your property. With that being said, this does come at extra cost as a tiled conservatory roof takes a lot longer to install and, in some cases, your conservatory installer may have to subcontract to a trained roofer in regards to more complex installations, further adding to the cost.
