Conservatory Installers in Essex

Essex is a big county – which means you have a lot of choice when shopping around for your new conservatory. But what about the people that’ll be doing the actual work? How do you know if they are the best conservatory installers in Essex? Hiring an unqualified or non-accredited building company could cost you time and money.

When researching conservatory companies in Essex, look on their website for badges that reveal their accreditations. Do you they mention whether they are insured and if the products they sell are underwritten by a proper manufacturer’s guarantee? Would their customers recommend them (you can look for feedback on Checkatrade and other reputable review sites)?

Better still, why not call us for help finding conservatory installers in Essex? Once you’ve requested a quote from us by using our conservatory cost calculator tool, an experienced member of our team will ring you to find out what you want to do next.

Should I Invest in a Conservatory?

You should invest in a Conservatory in Essex if it will (i) add value to your home; (ii) provide you with more space; (iii) if your chosen site is a suitable place to build a conservatory. You will also need to think about the smaller details – such as the type of heating you’ll need and what sort of flooring would work best.

When investigating if you should invest in a conservatory, ask yourself what the new build will achieve? A lot of the customers we help have been thinking of moving, because they are rapidly running out of space – but the thought of relocating worries them, as they know it can be expensive. In a case like this, a conservatory is a worthwhile invessment.

If your garden faces south, your conservatory will be habitable 365 years a year. But you’ll still need to find a way to keep it warm during colder periods. Underfloor heating is expensive and inefficient if your conservatory roof is high; plus, you won’t lay carpet – as it will prevent convection.

Should you invest in a conservatory in Essex? Absolutely. But speak to qualified insaller first, so that you can get some initial guidance and an idea of costs.

Do I Need Planning Permission to Build a Conservatory?

Prior to October 2008, it was not uncommon to have planning permission for a conservatory rejected. Building regulations have since changed, with extensions such as these now being viewed as permissible developments. So do you need planning permission to build a conservatory in Essex or not?

If your property is grade 2 listed, you’ll have to adhere a stricter set of rules. Your conservatory will need to blend in with the existing features of your home, so that it doesn’t dominate. You may need to bring in specialist tradesman to do the work and use niche materials to ensure your designs are fully compliant. Sometimes you do need planning permission to build a conservatory in Essex – and with grade 2 listed buildings it can be complex.

Elsewise, as long as your conservatory isn’t going to take up more than half the space of your orginal property – and you’re not planning to include any elevations (such as verandas) – you should be fine to proceed.

Still not sure if you need planning permission to build a conservatory in Essex? We can put you in touch with local installers once you’ve requested a conservatory quote.

Orangery or Conservatory?

Orangeries are becoming more commonplace these days. But, unless you know what you are looking for, you could easily miss them. That’s because they’re designed to look like a natural extension of the property they’re built on to. Whether you should buy an orangery or conservatory in Essex is a different matter altogether – as it’ll come down to personal taste.

If you love glass and clean lines, then a conservatory should be your first choice. Many conservatories can be designed with ceiling-to-floor glass that lets in lots of light; and you can even ask for bi folding doors that open from the middle and stack neatly to the side – giving you an unencumbered view of your garden.

Still not sure if an orangery or conservatory for your Essex home is better? Orangeries use more mortar than glass, as we suggested earlier. If you want an extension that blends in to your home, rather than stands out, this might be your better choice.

Installer are just as likely to sell conservatories and orangeries. Why not visit a showroom and see for yourself? We can help you make the next best step – just ask for us a conservatory cost and we’ll call you for a more detailed discussion about your conservatory requirements.

★★★★★
Had the wonderful team of Vince, Kirk & Josh, they were warm, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Due to the age of our house & the poor build quality there were a couple of issues, but they had no problem sorting things out, and delivered a high quality service. We are beyond happy with our new windows and bifolding doors. Thank you.

What is a DIY conservatory?

The parts you order are delivered pre-rendered and ready to be installed. You'll be doing the work yourself – so be prepared for some heavy lifting. The pieces slot together like a jigsaw, so there's no fuss or mess. But these conservatories can look cheap if the materials are of a poor quality – so research what the supplier is offering carefully and get an equivalent comparison from a local fitter.

How much is a conservatory?

Arguably, you need to spend around £13000 to get a conservatory that'll add value to your property – but it's possible to get a decent one for as little as £5000 if you shop around.

Can I get planning permission for a conservatory for my bungalow?

In the vast majority of cases, planning permission isn't a problem. Speak to your installer about any exemptions that might affect your design before proceeding with any work. As long as your conservatory isn't too big and won't be facing frontwards on to a highway, you shouldn't have to worry.
