Which is cheaper: a conservatory or extension?

Categories: Blog Posts

One of the biggest issues that homeowners face is the lack of space in their property. Whilst your home may have been the perfect size when you originally bought it, over time, there are things that can cause it to feel cramped and cluttered.

Children, pets, hobbies and just life in general all take their toll. Whether it comes in the form of accessories, ornaments, gadgets or home furnishings, these things can all take up space throughout your home. So rather than moving home, many people look at ways to make the most of the home they have.

There are two main options to consider when it comes to extending your property. A conservatory or a standard one storey extension. It really depends on what you need and the budget that you have.

Which is cheaper?

One thing is for sure, if you want to create more space in your home then it will come at a cost. However, the option that you decide on will have an effect on how much that will be.

Overall, a conservatory is going to be cheaper than a home extension. Not only is there less labour costs associated to the builder (as it is a quicker build) but the materials used cost less too. Conservatories are also less likely to require you to apply for planning permission which means another cost reduction.
Home extensions will often need more flooring, paint, carpet and accessories in order to finish off the look whereas a conservatory will often only need flooring.

Does cheap mean poor quality?

When it comes to conservatories, if you choose a professional builder then they will be able to create the right conservatory for you. They will have years of experience building conservatories of all shapes and sizes and will know the right materials to use in order to finish off your conservatory to the highest standard possible.
