What is an uPVC Conservatory?
uPVC is a tough plastic used as a modern alternative to wood in conservatory construction. An uPVC conservatory will cost between £10,000 and £21,300, depending on the style of conservatory you choose.
Design Characteristics of uPVC Conservatories
The design of your uPVC conservatory will depend on the style of conservatory you choose; uPVC is a versatile material that works with traditional style conservatories such as Edwardian and Victorian, and modern, lean to and gable end conservatories. uPVC will make up the main frame of your conservatory and, if you have a glass or polycarbonate roof, the roof structure as well. uPVC is available a range of colours: white, cream, brown, green or wood effect. You can even choose to have the exterior finished in one colour and the interior in another to suit your interior design scheme.
uPVC is an adaptable material that can be moulded into different shapes to suit your design. An uPVC conservatory can have bi-fold, French or patio doors.
- Cost Considerations
- Do I need planning permission?
Unlike wood, plastic doesn’t rot, fade, flake or get beset by damp and woodworm. uPVC is easy to maintain – needing barely more than an occasional wipe with a damp cloth.
The cost of a conservatory constructed in UPVC will depend on the style of conservatory you choose, its size, roof type and the labour required.
There is a wide range of conservatory styles to suit every home and budget. Edwardian and Victorian and Gable end conservatories have traditional design features and decorative elements such as faceted windows and roof crests. Lean-to conservatories are a good option for those with a limited budget or limited space. P, L, and T shaped conservatories are ideal for those with larger properties who want a versatile living space. Orangeries are at the top end of the market and are arguably the most attractive, but are best suited to period homes. The cost of an UPVC conservatory varies wildly – – a small Edwardian conservatory with a polycarbonate roof will cost £10,000; an orangery with a lantern roof will cost £21,300.
The roof is the most expensive part of a conservatory so it is important to consider your options, which (with the exception of orangeries which traditionally have glass lantern roofs) are glass, polycarbonate or tiles.
Polycarbonate is a tough thermoplastic able to withstand all that nature can throw at it. Polycarbonate is light, so cheap to transport and install. Polycarbonate has a slightly frosted appearance which will give you privacy from neighbours and can be covered in a film to block UV rays. Polycarbonate is the cheapest option with prices starting at £10,000 for a smaller sized Edwardian conservatory, rising to £14,500 for larger P or T shaped conservatories.
Glass is the most traditional roofing material and doesn’t cost that much more than polycarbonate . Glass will provide you with some insulation, keeping those heating costs down. Glass will not give you any shelter from prying eyes, although you can have blinds fitted. UPVC Conservatories with a glass roof cost between £11,000 and £15,200.
The third and final option is tiling . Tiles will give you insulation and privacy – but less sunlight. However, if you plan to use your conservatory all year round a solid roof may be your best bet – you can have glazed panels installed to let in more light. You can choose to have traditional tiles or a Guardian tiled roof, which will be lighter and easier to erect. Conservatories with tiled/ guardian tiled roofs cost between £13,800 and £18,700.
- Size / Measurements
Your conservatory cannot be more than four metres wide (three if you live in an attached home) and no more than three metres tall. These restrictions, and thespace available to you, should give you an idea of how large your conservatory will be so that you can begin to get an idea of cost. An Edwardian conservatory measuring 3000×3000 will cost upwards of £10,000. At the other end of the scale an orangery measuring 3500×4500 will cost around £21,300.
- Building Work
Whatever conservatory style you decide to go for you will need to have a solid base. You can choose between a concrete foundation or a steel frame. It is worth noting that concrete foundations require more labour and more mess! All conservatory styles can be fully glazed (to the floor) or built upon a dwarf wall. Building a conservatory will cost between £1,800 and £4,000.
The good news is that you do not need planning permission to build a conservatory. However you must remember to keep within the size restrictions (four metres in height by three metres wide for an attached, four metres by four metres for a detached property). You also need to have your conservatory built against a wall (not separated from your property by external walls). You should also make sure that no more than 50 per cent of your garden is covered by outbuildings
