Apart from the obvious extra living space benefits of adding cheap conservatories to properties is there a financial benefit that would make it profitable just as a way to increase the value of your house?
The actual test will only be once the work is done and the property re-valued, but there are many pundits in the real estate business who say that you will add more value to your house and that the increase in house value will be more than the cost of building the conservatory.
You should bear a few things in mind though – keep room in character with the existing building, if you add a cheap and nasty ‘greenhouse’ to a mansion it won’t work .
It was covered in the daily telegraph a while ago that well planned & constructed conservatories can add up to 7% to the value of a home. Given that according to the BBC the average house price in the UK is £242,415 then a 7% increase would be almost £17,000 and that’s a good return on your investment.
A word of advice, when choosing a conservatory installer check out their previous work, get feedback from previous customers and make sure the company is registered with a big trade body like GGF, FENSA, CERTASS or DGCOS.
Always ask for insurance backed deposit protection and make sure you know what guarantees you are getting – both on workmanship, material & products. Search “low cost conservatories“.
