Factors impacting the cost of a conservatory
Now that you have a good idea of the average cost associated with placing a prefab conservatory, it is important to look at any choices that can further affect the price of a prefab conservatory. We’ve listed a few of those choices here.
Factor 1: The dimensions of the prefab conservatory
The most important choice, which immediately affects the price of a prefabricated conservatory, is the size. You can count on an average cost of between 650-920 GBP per square meter of conservatory. If you want to be sure that you have the best conservatory for your home, it’s always interesting to consult a real conservatory specialist. He or she will be happy to assist you to discuss the various possibilities as well as the sizes.
Factor 2: The type of glass
Also important is the type of glass used in a conservatory. Most of a prefabricated conservatory will consist of this material. The choice of glass therefore plays an extremely important role in determining the total costs. By default, prefabricated conservatories are still supplied with double glass, but you can also opt for high-performance glass, for example. HR ++ glass, for example, costs about 13 GBP per square meter. For HR +++ glass, the cost is around 44 GBP per square meter, but the U value is only 0.5 to 0.9. This will save you a lot of money on the energy bill.
Factor 3: The material of the prefab conservatory
The third choice also has a significant influence on the cost of the prefab conservatory. What about the material it consists of? A prefabricated conservatory is often made out of plastic, but what about wood or aluminium? Each of these materials basically has its own specific advantages. For example, where plastic requires little maintenance, wood provides more ambience and aluminium has an exceptional quality. Do you want a prefab conservatory of good quality, which does not require much maintenance and is not expensive? Then choosing plastic is recommended. Would you like a larger conservatory with optimal quality and a contemporary look and do you have a greater budget? Then choosing aluminium may be the best choice for your situation!
