06 Sep Save Money on Your New Conservatory
There are a number of ways you can save money on conservatory installation. Our team of home improvement experts in Dorset are here to help. Conservatory prices widely vary, depending on the size and model you are hoping to install. We understand that as well as outstanding quality, affordability is also crucial when choosing a conservatory for your property. Here’s how you can save money without cutting corners.
Less brickwork on your conservatory = lower cost
The more brickwork that is included in your conservatory’s design, the more expensive the result will be. That is why orangeries are usually more expensive than glass conservatories on a per square metre basis. If you are looking for a conservatory design that will keep your costs down, consider a lean-to conservatory or Victorian conservatory.
Decide beforehand why you are getting a conservatory
Changing your mind about your conservatory mid-installation is a sure way of adding money to the bill. If you are considering a new conservatory, then you should have a good idea as to what you’ll be using it for so that you don’t spend money on features that you don’t need.
For example, if you only want to use it during the bright summer months, then investing in underfloor heating and lots of light fittings might be a waste of time and money for you. However, if you want to use it all year round, then double glazing, lights and heating will be more important.
Ensure that everything for your conservatory is pre-arranged
You need to be proactive when it comes to planning for your new conservatory. Delays can cost you time and money, so make sure that you’re ahead of the game and have everything sorted for when the workmen arrive.
This includes arranging debris removal and disposal, considering drainage and electrical wiring which could hold up the installation and acquiring planning permission if necessary. Talking through the plans with your chosen installer is a sure-way of solidifying the conservatory project in both of your minds and will clear up any misconceptions.
