A conservatory can be a fantastic way to expand your living space without breaking the bank on a full price extension, they are often made mostly of large glass panels rather than full brick making it a very money smart solution. A new conservatory can also add a new aesthetic angle to your home while our replacement conservatories make sure that if your current conservatory is ageing and no longer functions as well as it used to it can be replaced to remake it back to the maximum level of efficiency and functionality.
What are the Signs that you Need a Replacement Conservatory?
If your conservatory is showing signs of age, it is important that you address this before it deteriorates to the point where it is no longer functional. When your conservatory starts being subject to extreme temperatures (boiling heat in the summer and freezing cold in the winter) this may mean your windows are degrading or have insufficient coating. There is also the element of increasing energy bills if its more of a challenge to heat or cool your conservatory, this may also link back to degradation within the windows. If you notice damage to the windows themselves it is highly likely that they will need to be replaced, there are cases where you may be able to have the windows repaired individually rather than replacing the conservatory itself but this varies on a case-by-case basis.
Is Installation or Maintenance Difficult?
In order to fit a replacement conservatory, you would first need to check to see if it requires planning permission, in many most cases you would only need permission if the new conservatory covers more than half the area surrounding your house or if the roof is higher than the roof of your current property. The installation of the conservatory takes multiple steps from taking the measurements to laying the foundations then building the walls, installing the glazing and finally getting it ready for use. Maintenance for a conservatory is simple and very similar to how you would manage a regular room, the windows require cleaning every so often and the hinges for the doors need to be oiled when they start to creak.
What are the Benefits to getting a New or Replacement Conservatory?
A new conservatory is a great way to extend your living space without having to break the bank, a conservatory can cost as little as £3,000 while full extensions are upwards of £30,000, this will also add value to your home and can sometimes account for as much as a 5% addition to the value of your property. Conservatories are also easier to attain planning permissions for as unlike an extension they don’t need to be identical to the rest of your home.
