Owning a conservatory

Is a Conservatory Cheaper Than an Orangery?Owning a conservatory can add great value to your house. However, the budget for building a conservatory can vary greatly. It is important to discuss which factors will affect the price of your conservatory.

  • This will depend greatly on three things:
  • The conservatory style
  • The Building size
  • What is an orangery?

Starting with your conservatory style, there are many styles to choose from, such as Victorian style or Lean-to style. A Victorian conservatory is a fancy styled conservatory with complex roof and floor design.

Such fanciness and complexity will definitely cost you more money. On another hand, Lean-to is a versatile, traditional, and decent conservatory. It is loose from any fanciness, and will clearly cost you less money.

Apart from these if you choose to add more window lights, increase the glazing, use decorative door design, or use specialized glass, these all will greatly increase the cost.

The second thing to ponder upon is the size of your conservatory. The smaller your building size will be, the lesser it will cost you.

If you decide for a professional construction, it will cost you more. Additionally, if your conservatory requires complex design to be constructed, then there will be an addition to the installation charges.

Moreover, if the construction is done in the inaccessible area where it is difficult for builders to take materials and do construction, then the cost will also significantly increase.

An overview

If you select a lean-to uPVC conservatory for the size of 2530mm x 1260mm, it will cost you around £2500 – £3000.

This is only a rough estimate if you choose polycarbonate instead of glass, the price will fall further.

So to get a cheap uPVC conservatory you should choose for a simple design like a lean-to, appropriate building material like polycarbonate, small size, and try to build it yourself.
