  • Before commiting to proceed you should check whether planning consent and building regulation approval are needed especially if building over drains/ creating new/ larger openings in outside walls. The conservatory should be guaranteed. Special rules will apply for listed properties or those in conservation areas. Thought should be given to energy conservation ie not having a large open entrance to the conservatory. While cost does not necessarily equal value if the job is done properly its a good guide. A good conservatory is a feature that will make a house attractive to prospective purchasers.

  • A good quality conservatory will add value. Attractiveness is important, but even more importantly if funds will allow, put radiators in or even better still, under floor heating. To be able to use a conservatory in winter is essential if you are to consider it an extra living room. I personally would avoid a lean to the house conservatory, as these don't add as much value as a beautiful conservatory.
