    A Conservatory With Victorian Elegance

    UPVC Victorian ConservatoryThe Victorian design is one of the more popular types of conservatory. Whilst its faceted geometry is perhaps not the most efficient use of available space, it is impossible to deny that the elegant brick work and lovely canopy roof make a powerful visual impact.

    This is a style of conservatory that speaks volumes about its owners. You can view a Victorian conservatory project in more than one way.

    First there is the do-it-yourself route. Whilst this may not appeal to most people, it may be worth considering.

    The plus side is that you save a lot of money. The downside is that if you get the base dimensions wrong or discover after completion that you have leaks, you could be in for a very lengthy and expensive repair.

    Installation Decisions

    Victorian Conservatory Installation

    Another approach is to have the base work done by a jobbing builder. This will save you the VAT on labour (few of them will be VAT registered).

    If you do decide to do this, be careful. Unless you know a bit about building and are confident that the quality of the work will stand the test of time, this could prove a false economy.

    We always recommend using a specialist conservatory company. This way you deal with one company and, if you take advantage of our Trusted Local Supplier Scheme, it will be a specialist company that you can trust to manage the project from design to turning the key in the door.

    And while you sit back and enjoy your new Victorian conservatory, you can rest assure in the knowledge that all of the work is fully guaranteed. But, more of that later.

    Victorian Conservatory Pricing Considerations

    Our online pricing system will take you through the quoting process step by step. But, before you begin pricing a new Victorian conservatory, give careful consideration to exactly what you intend using it for.

    Room Functionality

    Is it going to be a playroom for the children, do you imagine yourself hosting dinner parties under the stars, will it be filled with tropical plants, or is it just somewhere to relax and put your feet up? How you use your new living space will guide decisions about roofing options, power point locations, lighting and flooring.

    The more you plan the final details, the better you will be at controlling costs. These are all questions that you will be asked by our Trusted Local Suppliers, so it will be helpful if you’ve decided on the answers in advance.

    Conservatory Playroom

    The Ground Work

    One of the most important elements contributing to the cost of a Victorian conservatory is the site itself. The things to look for are mostly quite obvious:

    • Is the site level or sloping?
    • Are there underground services obstructing the base (look for drain inspection covers)?
    • Are there paving slabs or patio slabs to be removed?
    • Is the section of the house wall which will form the back of the conservatory free from obstruction (look for sewer ventilation pipes, gutter down pipes, kitchen waste water drains, satellite dishes, telephone wire and boiler vents)?

    These are not problems for our Trusted Local Suppliers, but they all require a bit of additional work.

    Cost Variations | Victorian Conservatories

    Victorian Conservatory Cost

    When you take all of the above into consideration, it becomes easy to see why prices can vary from £650 to over £1,000 per square metre.

    That may sound a lot, but it’s still a fraction of what you would have to pay for a full extension which adds no more additional living space.

    All that in a fraction of the time it takes to build an extension and with far less mess and disruption. An added advantage is the fact that conservatories usually do not require planning permission.

    Conservatory Design Options

    Now the fun begins. Our online system will present you with many styles, including the ever popular lean-to or garden room, the grand Edwardian, the elegant gable end design and the spacious P shape. You can also elect to price with a low brick wall or with glass from floor to roof.

    The low brick (dwarf) wall is the usual choice for the Victorian conservatory. Because it is only 600mm (2’ 6”) high, you can sit comfortably and still enjoy a full view of the garden. It also provides the wall space necessary for power points and leaves you with an internal sill for plants, etc.

    Frequently Asked Conservatory Questions

    In most instances the council tax will not increase on a property unless the additions another living quarter or self-contained annex. This means the addition of a conservatory should not increase the council tax payable on a property. To be absolutely certain you can always check the government's website which gives advice on council tax.
    The main difference between a conservatory and an orangery is how the roof is constructed. A conservatory roof is over 75% glazed whereas an orangery roof has less than this amount. A conservatory also has over half of its wall space glazed whereas an orangery can include more brickwork than this.
    Yes, you can put a conservatory on the front of your house. This is because conservatories come under the category of a permitted development. As such in most instances you do not need planning permission. This applies if the area surrounding the original house is not more than 50% covered by other buildings or additions.
    There are many ways of gaining temperature control. Conservatory blinds, ventilating windows, cooling film and air conditioning to name a few. You might also want to consider replacing your conservatory roof with a tiled or solid design.
    There are many ways of keeping your conservatory warm in the Winter. If you have a small conservatory then an electric heater will suffice but those with bigger conservatories may want to look into installing underfloor heating.
    Glazing is also very important in a conservatory. Most heat can be lost through glass so ensure your conservatory glazing is thermally efficient. You can also tackle draughts or cold spots by installing conservatory blinds.
    This will largely depend on your location. You will find that certain areas have different setbacks based on the use of the building. We recommend that you check with your local council or take a look at the Goverment's Planning Portal.

    You must notify your neighbour if you want to:

    - Build on or at the boundary of your 2 properties - Work on an existing party wall or party structure - Dig below and near to the foundation level of their property
    Replacing your conservatory roof can indeed make your conservatory warmer however, this will depend on the type of roof you choose. A solid or tiled conservatory roof will offer greater insulation than a plastic or glazed roof.
    A solid roof can be put on a conservatory. There are many solid conservatory roof designs available - just ask your chosen installer for a recommendation. The majority of new-build conservatories with a solid, tiled or glazed roof will not require planning permission. They are covered under what is known as 'permitted development'. However, building regulations will apply if you want to build an extension.
    When it comes to your home improvement, it's important to have all the necessary legal documentation. The installation of a conservatory, orangery or porch does not require a FENSA registration form.
    The average life span of a uPVC conservatory is largely dependent on the quality of materials and build. Typically, a uPVC frame can last up to 25 years but some can last for decades ensuring they are well maintained.
    Planning permissions used to say that a certain percentage of roofing must be translucent in order for a conservatory to be exempt from planning permission. Changes to building regulations however, now means that you may not require planning permission for roof replacement.
    Swapping your existing conservarory roof for a tiled or solid roof replacement can be done without needing to file for planning permission. Planning permission may be required however, if the height of your extension is changed following completion.
    A conservatory is defined as a 'building that has no less than 75% of its roof area made of translucent material and no less than 50% of its total wall area made of glass.
    It is possible to convert a conservatory to an orangery but it isn't a simple process. A surveyor will need to come out and assess your property and conservatory to see if it is at first , feasible.
    Both extensions and orangeries often require planning permission and in order to satisfy requirements, a new structure will have to be built.
    If a conservatory is within two metres of a boundary, a conservatory should not be higher than three metres. It must also not extend beyond the rear wall of the original house by more than 3m if an attached house or by 4m if a detached house.
    For construction work to begin a trench will need to be excavated to a minimum depth of 600mm. A conservatory needs footings just as much as any extension does.
    Solid ground will need to found first and needs to be accepted by Building Control as being a minimum of 1 metre in standard conditions.
    Foundations will need to be dug and because conservatories are lightweight in structure, their foundation loads are usually quite low. This can often lead to the notion that shallow foundations are satisfactory however, shallow foundations are more susceptible to subsidence.

    Conservatories that are built with foundations shallower than the Building Regulations advise, are likely to encounter problems.

    Building Regulations state:

    A2. The building shall be constructed so that ground movement caused by :-
    (a) swelling, shrinkage or freezing of the subsoil; or
    (b) land-slip or subsidence (other than subsidence arising from shrinkage), in so far as the risk can be reasonably foreseen, will not impair the stability of any part of the building
    Usually, there are no planning requirements when it comes to building a conservatory to a bungalow. However, the conservatory will be subject to certain conditions so be sure to check with your local building authority or with the Government's Planning Portal to ensure your conservatory remains within these guidelines.
    When is a conservatory not a conservatory? In order for a structure to remain a permitted development (a conservatory), the build needs to comply with a number of rules. A conservatory must be ground level, must not be more than 30m2, must be thermally separated from the original building, have its own heating and have glazing in critical zones that meet Part Nof the building regulations.
    An extension refers to an additional structure that is anatomically in-keeping with your main property. An extension often requires planning permission unless it is classified as permitted development and is built with opaque cavity walls and brick-based foundations. Extensions are a big home improvement and investment, needing the work of an architect.
    Conservatories or glazed extensions are perfect for those looking to add extra space on a budget. Typically, they are less of a logistical strain and in most cases do not require planning permission,
    A conservatory can be built under permitted development rights, not needing an application for planning permission. A conservatory however is subject to the limits and conditions listed here. Building a conservatory onto an extension however, will be subject to different conditions. In some cases and under the permitted development regulations, you cannot attach an extension to an already extended part of a dwelling. It has to be attached to the original walls of the dwelling house.
    Conservatories are generally much cheaper than a single-storey extension of the same size. The price difference will largely depend on size and how complex the structure is to build, as well as the quality of materials.
    A conservatory or single-story extension can be built without planning permission if: It's a maximum of 4 metres high or 3 metres high, within 2 metres of a boundary and the conservatory or extension does not cover more than half of the garden.
    From now until 2019, you can extend outwards by up to 8 metres for detached homes and 6 metres for other property types. For this, instead of applying for planning permission you will need to undergo a Neighbour Consultation Scheme.
    In most circumstances, building regulations tend to apply when you build a new extension or a very large structure to your property. However, most of the time, conservatories are exempt from building regulations when they are erected at ground level and the floor surface areas is less than 30 square metres.
    The average life expectancy of a conservatory depends on the quality of materials used as well as the installer. Generally speaking a conservatory built with uPVC window and door frames can last up to 25 - 30 years.
    It is possible to build either a conservatory or a single-storey extension without gaining planning permission if: firstly, it has a maximum height of 4 metres or 3 metres high if situated within 2 metres of an existing boundary. The conservatory itself does not exceed over half the size of the garden.
    Yes you can! Whatever the shape of your existing conservatory, you can be sure that there is a solid roof equivalent to meet your exacting requirements.
    Changing roofs from a polycarbonate to a solid roof means that building regulations will apply. Your chosen installer will be able to answer any questions you have and help with any red tape such as contacting local authorities to resolve building regulations compliance.
