Conservatory Installations Explained

If you or someone close to you haven’t had a conservatory installation before, you may be wondering exactly what will happen. It’s a slightly different process to most standard construction projects. To give you get a better idea of what’s going to happen and help you plan for work to commence, we’ve created this simple, straightforward guide.

Planning Permission

Before any work can begin, planning permission may need to be sought. The shape and size of your conservatory installation, as well as the nature of your property will affect whether you need permission. Many conservatories are considered to be Permitted Developments, where you don’t need planning permission to carry out the work.

How Long Does Conservatory Installation Take?

The amount of time your conservatory installation takes to complete will depend on a number of factors. This includes the size, shape and complexity of the structure. However, the majority of installations take between three and six weeks to complete. Unexpected delays can occur as a result of unknown structural issues or inclement weather. Although your contractor will give you an estimated completion date, keep in mind that there are some things that are out of your control which can affect that date.

How Much Do Conservatories Cost?

The exact price of your conservatory installation will depend heavily on the design as well as the materials involved. A simple conservatory could cost as little as £10,000, whereas a more complex orangery could be closer to £80,000. The best way to evaluate the cost of your new conservatory is to speak to our team, who can offer you a consultation and a quote.
