The material the conservatory is built from

Whether you opt to have uPVC, aluminium or timber frames for your conservatory, you will need to bear in mind that this will have an effect on how much it costs. uPVC frames are easy to maintain, durable and tend to cost the least, whilst solid aluminium framing tends to be a bit pricier. Generally, timber-framed extensions, despite their luxurious feel, are the most expensive.

The size and style of the conservatory/orangery/extension

Conservatory designs range from relatively understated to quite elaborate. For example, a lean-to conservatory is a more simple conservatory design, and these usually cost less than the more lavish Victorian conservatories. As larger conservatories, such as the P-shaped variety, require more materials and labour to construct, you can also expect to pay more for them than you would a smaller conservatory.

Orangeries and glazed extensions also have a more solid construction than conservatories, thanks to specifically designed pillars. Whilst these structures achieve a stronger thermal performance than conservatories, leading to potential savings on energy bills, they also tend to be more costly.

The chosen roofing option

When buying a conservatory or orangery, you’ll also have a chance to choose which roof it’s fitted with. This will also affect how much it costs.

You might want to maximise light intake with a glass roof or create a room that feels like another room of the house by opting for a Supalite or Ultraroof tiled roof. If a suitable structure is present, you may even want a lavish lantern roof fitted instead.

The standard of the service

If you’ve gone with a reputable conservatory company (like us), you can expect a higher standard of service. After all, there’s a reason why we were voted a Which? Top Trusted Trader in 2019. Therefore, it’s important to research a company thoroughly before hiring them, check out online review platforms like Checkatrade and Which?. Viewing examples of their work is another excellent way to discern credentials. Why not check out a case study of our own to see what you can expect when hiring us to build your conservatory?

A better quality of service can cost you more initially but it will be worth it in the long run because a well-installed conservatory will provide you with years of enjoyment, whilst a poorly installed one will cause you considerable grief later down the line. It’s also important to bear in mind that, if you’re quoted a price that seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Why you should pick a local company over the nationals

Additional factors affecting conservatory prices

In addition to the aforementioned factors, conservatory prices are affected by:

Glazing – conservatories and orangeries can be fitted with double or triple glazing. Opting for triple has various benefits like keeping out more outside noise and improved thermal efficiency, but it does come at an extra cost.

Colour/finish – there is a huge range of finish options available, including smooth, wood grain and matte finishes, all of which have an effect on conservatory prices.

Windows and doors – conservatories and other extensions can also be fitted with a range of window and door options, like sleek bifold doors, classic French doors and more.

Extras – you might opt for insulated columns, a stylish cornice or finial, a certain type of glass, or interior lighting, which will need to be factored into the overall cost.

How much does a replacement conservatory roof cost?

If you already have a conservatory, you might find replacing its roof is a better option than paying for a completely new conservatory. However, like conservatories, there are no set conservatory roof prices, and they will vary in accordance with the size and style of the conservatory, and the type of replacement roof.
