A conservatory can easily recoup 100% of its value when it comes time to sell the home
We make adding a new conservatory to your property as straightforward as possible, helping you from start to finish.
A conservatory in East Lothian is a brilliant way to get the extra space you need without having to go through the expense and disruption of extending the house traditionally. A conservatory enables you to take advantage of natural light and the warmth and ambience it brings, which can provide a natural lift to the spirits on those cold, mid-winter days.
Our conservatories are impeccably conceived and designed, draught free, low maintenance and security is never an issue. We offer many options for windows, doors, roofs and even for your preferred dwarf wall. When you need an affordable way to expand your home's liveable space, a conservatory is often your best choice.
The benefits of building a conservatory extension on your home in East Lothian are many and include:
Increased home value - A conservatory can quickly recoup 100% of its value when it comes time to sell the home. Like basement renovations, a conservatory typically adds up to more than the sum of its parts in the eyes of potential buyers. In addition, your home will enjoy enhanced curb appeal and, should you decide to sell, it will spend less time on the market, the same is said about our conservatory roofs in East Lothian.
Increased liveable space - With a conservatory, you add liveable space without paying for a more traditional home extension. Conservatories can be new, individual rooms or serve as an extension for the kitchen or living room like lean-to conservatories. Or you can use the conservatory to create an enclosed garden area (more on that below).
Increased natural light - One of the most complex parts of dealing with the winter is spending so much time indoors away from natural light. A conservatory can provide you with a refuge that’s bathed in natural light most of the time. So the next time you are feeling down because of the weather, grab your favourite book and head for the conservatory.
About that garden… - A conservatory in East Lothian is the perfect hot house garden environment that also happens to be the ideal environment for enjoying your morning coffee or having afternoon tea with friends. Full of lush greenery, the conservatory also generates plenty of clean, fragrant air that can help freshen the air throughout the home.
Purpose - Before you decide on a plan for your new conservatory, you need to determine how you plan to use it. Will your conservatory be solely a home improvement or do you want to use it as a greenhouse?
This additional feature is going to become a permanent addition to the home. If its purpose is unclear, it may never be properly appreciated or utilised. You may be better off considering other home improvements.
Position - Positioning your conservatory to face south will allow it to take advantage of sunlight year-round. Then again, if you believe the southern light will be too much during the summer months, you may want to orientate the conservatory to face north instead.
P-shaped conservatories take advantage of more directions to get sunlight.
Material - The conservatory can be made from PVC to aluminium to hardwood, depending on your budget, conservatory purpose, and personal tastes. Conservatories have big windows and doors that have double-glazing. Double-glazing doors and windows offer additional protection because they have two or more window panes. Some conservatories come with a surrounding dwarf wall.
Conservatory roofs come in a wide range of materials. You can even opt to have a glass roof.
Conservatories are a popular alternative to traditional extensions and home improvements because of the tremendous value they deliver across the aesthetic and financial spectrums. If you’re considering a conservatory for your home, give us a call.
There is a wide range of conservatory prices. A wooden conservatory should cost between £5000 and £29,100.
Other possibilities are a uPVC conservatory, which costs between £3900 and £66,700, and an aluminium conservatory, which costs between £4000 and £73,800. The most affordable ones are the lean-to conservatories.
A conservatory is a glass building with a brick foundation and a glazed roof that is sloped. A brick structure with big windows and a flat roof with a glass lantern is known as an orangery. Both of these home improvements greatly enhance the surrounding areas.
If the conservatory covers more than 50% of the land around the 'original home,' you will require planning clearance (including any other buildings). The addition is built forward of the 'original house"s front or side that faces a road.
