How much do conservatories cost?
As a general rule, conservatories cost anywhere between £6,000 and £20,000 for supply and fit.

- Whether you are buying supply only or supply & fit
- The conservatory installer you choose
- The type of conservatory you want
- The projected size of your conservatory
- The amount of base work needed
- The type and quality of materials and glass used
- The amount of openings (windows and doors)
- Added extras (underfloor heating, extra insulation)
For a more detailed breakdown of what could affect the costs of your conservatory, see the third section of this article.

What affects the cost of my conservatory?
The conservatory installer you choose
Local conservatory providers will be able to give you the best price according to your situation, so make sure you get lots of quotes and discuss the detailed breakdown of the costs involved so you are aware of exactly what you are paying for.
The amount of base work needed
Conservatories generally need a shallow foundation as well as some work to the exterior of the house. Perhaps a water drain pipe will need to be moved, or an exterior tap will need removing. This can affect conservatory prices in unexpected ways, and you may have to apply for planning permission.
The style of conservatory you want
Some conservatory styles are more expensive than others, with the lean-to variety being at the bottom end of the spectrum and orangeries being near the top in terms of price.
The size of your conservatory
Of course, the bigger your conservatory the more expensive it will be to build and maintain in terms of temperature and otherwise. Temperature concerns can be mitigated with low-E glass and insulation bolt-ons but this entails a higher cost up front.
The materials used
The cheapest and most common material that conservatories are built out of is uPVC, but you can also choose the more expensive wood or aluminium construction. Hardwood oak conservatories look very luxurious but have a pricetag to match!
The glazing you choose
To qualify as a conservatory, most of your construction must be glazed, either with sheets of transparent polycarbonate or glass. Polycarbonate is less durable and is higher maintenance than glass but is considerably less expensive.
The amount of windows and doors
Depending on how many openings you would like to have, the final conservatory price will vary. Generally two openings near the top of the glazing to the sides of the conservatory and one door to the garden suffices and allows for ample ventilation.
Heating add-ons like underfloor heating
One of the biggest complaints conservatory customers have post-installation is the temperature of their conservatory – too hot in summer and too cold in winter. In order to mitigate this it is good to properly insulate your conservatory, install heating and invest in low-reflexivity glass that allows light through but does not store heat inside.
The amount and quality of internal fixtures
Conservatory prices do not always include fittings such as blinds, flooring and lighting. It is a good idea to discuss this with your conservatory provider, and they can let you know if this is included and how much you can expect to pay for the fittings you need.
