This article is going to act as a kind of guide for conservatory prices that you can reference when shopping around and making a purchase. Whenever you make an investment in a product you don’t have much experience in it’s always best to have a good understanding of what you should expect to pay so you don’t end up getting taken for a ride. It’s also good practice to have knowledge of how this price is broken down into the different parts of a conservatory because you might decide that you can make one for far cheaper yourself.
Conservatories prices range between 30,000 and 90,000 dollars installed by professionals, for most people living in a detached or semi-detached house spending $20,000 on one will be more than sufficient. But what exactly are you paying for? Let’s break it down.
The main parts that make up a conservatory are the foundations, walls, windows, roof and the furniture you decide to place inside it, including your conservatory blinds. On average your foundation will cost 100-200 per cubic yard. This means that the bigger area your conservatory takes up, the more expensive it will be. There is always a little bit more variation between the prices of the walls. They can set you back anywhere between $1000 and $3000 on a standard sized conservatory. The roof isn’t quite as costly as the foundations; $300 is probably more than enough for this. Of course the furniture you place inside the conservatory is completely up to you and the price will reflect the quality you want. Windows also need to be considered, these can be fairly costly, vinyl windows cost about 100 each you can expect to pay anywhere between $400 to $1000 depending on how many upvc windows that you want. In some cases it can be even more than this.
So there you have it, readers should note that these figures are extremely rough because I have tried to generalize them. If you’re purchasing a high quality or much larger conservatory you should expect to pay considerably more.
