Conservatory Estimates and Options for First Timer

by tomkap » Mon Jul 27, 2020 6:00 pm

Hi,

I am getting a new build home (near St Albans) and have plans to include add a conservatory to it. We are first time home buyers and of course, learning about conservatories as we go!

We are thinking of lean-to conservatory with 4.5M width and 3M projection, and using self-cleaning blue glass for roof and double glazed frames. See attached the exact render image. We were planning to use the space for dining aroud the year and for that reason, will be adding a electric heater to the space. Few questions I had were;

1. Would these glass options keep the space warm and cold?
2. What would one normally spend on this - full build i.e. including flooring, insulation, electrical work etc..
3. Would one need planning/building permit for this, if the land has permitted developments rights?

Thanks,
Tom
