Conservatory price boom expected this summer

February 24th, 2012

A new conservatory brings a wealth of opportunities to every home, adding light and space, whilst increasing the property’s value. And in the stagnant house market, every homeowner should be looking at a conservatory to improve their property’s aesthetic appeal.

With a range of conservatory styles and materials, there’s something for everyone. From the elegant Victorian and Edwardian styles to the modern bespoke and lean-to, you’ll be able to find something to suit your taste.

And with summer just around the corner, it’s important to begin the process now so you can get more enjoyment out of the warmer weather. What’s more, demand will increase over the next few months, which will only trigger a rise in conservatory prices.

With the improvements to modern technology, conservatories can now be built with products such as energy efficient glass, which helps homeowners to cut their heating bills.

The investment made into a conservatory is very worthwhile as you’ll easily get this back with the increase in your property’s value and it could be the final piece of the jigsaw that’ll help you sell.

But don’t just take our word for it. Listed below are the benefits to installing a new conservatory, so you can decide for yourself if one will improve your home.


With a new conservatory, you really are receiving value for money. As mentioned, house prices have stabilised and you could easily spend over £10,000 moving to a new home, when you include the associated stamp duty and fees.

Whereas a conservatory won’t just improve the home’s appeal to you, but it’ll also increase its value. With a beautiful conservatory that opens up to the garden you’ll be reeling in potential buyers and enjoying the summer.


There’s no denying, a conservatory offers an incredible amount of extra space that can be enjoyed all through the year. Plenty of light will flood through the large windows, offering a fantastic space to relax all through the year.

The use of a conservatory differs from home to home, which is one of the great benefits of installing one. You can simply do anything you want. A popular reason for installing a conservatory is to extend the kitchen and dining area, which is brilliant when built next to the existing kitchen.

Meanwhile, many homes prefer to use their conservatory as a place to retreat to in the evenings. The ball is in your court and a conservatory can serve any function you deem appropriate for your home.


Conservatories allow you to enjoy your garden throughout the year, giving you easy access to the outside world. Even when the weather takes a turn for the worse there’s no reason to worry, as modern conservatories are built with the latest insulation techniques, such as double glazing.

With the large windows allowing plenty of sunlight in, you can relax in your conservatory without disturbances such as the TV. With a range of conservatory furniture you can turn your conservatory into the ultimate retreat for both the day and night.

Conservatory materials

Conservatories are primarily constructed from one of three materials – uPVC, hardwood or aluminium.

However, you should only be considering uPVC. Hardwood conservatories are prone to rotting and warping over time, which will only add to your expense.

Aluminium conservatories are the most expensive option and haven’t got the same aesthetic appeal as you’ll find with uPVC.

uPVC is the most popular material for conservatories and windows and it’s easy to see why. It’s cheaper to produce than the other two, whilst it’s excellent for durability and resistance to weather.

uPVC conservatories don’t fall victim to rotting or rusting, and are made with stabilisers to protect them from the sun’s UV rays.
