The Gable conservatory is one a several classic designs. It is so called because, when viewed from the front, the pitched roof is configured as a gable. This creates a rather imposing appearance, giving the impression of greater height. The Gable or Gable end conservatory is in all other respects identical to the popular Edwardian design.
On a purely practical level, the great benefit of the Gable conservatory over, say, a Victorian style is that the square or rectangular floor plan makes the most efficient use of the garden space available.
We’ll get onto the matter of prices shortly, but there a only a few differences between the costings for Gable conservatory and an Edwardian conservatory.
The Gable end conservatory tends to be associated with large houses with high elevations that aren’t intimidated by this bold design of conservatory. You’ll certainly see this design in use with that sort of property, but a Gable conservatory can be adapted to most sorts of buildings, including bungalows. Where the installation is done in conjunction with a single story house, there are two options.
The first is to create a dormer in the house roof to marry with the pitch of the conservatory roof. This is the more elegant and also the more costly of the two. The second is to use a sloping back pitch which will then share drainage with the house roof into a box gutter system.
Assuming you are building your conservatory from scratch, you have three options, all of which have different cost implications.
The first is DIY. Unless you are experienced at both building (foundations, flooring, brick work, etc) and conservatory erection (including sealing, glazing and lead work), this is not something that we would ever recommend. Should your base be slightly out of square, you’re quite likely to find that the conservatory will not fit. Conservatory roofs are complicated bits of kit and searching for the source of a leak could prove an impossible task.
The second is to manage the project yourself. If you find builders you think you trust, expect to pay £60 plus for the labour element of the base work. This is for one-man-band builders who are not VAT registered. We can’t offer any estimates for materials, as individual requirements vary greatly. But, expect the base to make up 30% – 45% of the total cost.
You could do the same with the UPVC section of the conservatory. There are companies on the internet that will sell you a gable end conservatory for under £3,000. Just find some local lads who say they can do the job and then hope for the best. Sound tempting? Just remember, once they’ve been paid you’re stuck with any problems.
The third is to work with an established local specialist conservatory company that will advise and project manage the whole thing, which we believe is the best way to get a Gable conservatory.

Next is the detailed design and technical survey. From this the ground work and building plans are drawn and the bespoke orders for the UPVC framework, roof and glazing are done.
When the builders arrive, they’ll take care to site the skip and materials to create minimal disturbance to your garden. Once they’ve finished the base work, the installation team will erect, seal and glaze your beautiful new conservatory. All finished and fully guaranteed.
