    Do Conservatories Add Value to Your Home?

    Adding to and improving your home can be a great way to add more space to your home, make your house more saleable or even just for adding some value to your home.

    Home improvements such as adding a bedroom, renovating the kitchen or bathrooms, adding a driveway, landscaping the garden or adding a conservatory or extension can be great ways to add value to your current home.

    How much value does a conservatory add to a home?

    A well-built conservatory that costs you about £10,000 can add up to 5% to the value of your home, an average of £15,000. If the conservatory is not built well it can actually detract value from the property, so make sure you get it done by a highly rated company.

    Make sure the conservatory is well designed and is in keeping with the rest of the house. Investing more money in a much more bespoke and luxury conservatory is likely to add more value in the long run, whilst costing more up front.

    Keep in mind your garden space. Garden spaces are another element that people look for when buying a property, so building a conservatory so big it takes up a lot of space may reduce the value by taking too much of the garden space away.

    What’s next?

    Get the quality right

    A cheap looking conservatory will end up deterring buyers rather than keeping them so choose the right company. Cheaper conservatories may also need more maintenance and have less year-round benefits due to the materials used and the quality of the fittings.

    Get a Guarantee

    Find a company that will offer a long guarantee to fix if something goes wrong.

    So, does a conservatory add value to your home? Yes, just find a high quality and trusted company who will build you a high-quality conservatory and offer you a great guarantee. For more information on conservatories read this guide.
