The Pros and Cons of a Conservatory
The Pros and Cons of an Extension
There are several things to consider when replacing a conservatory with an extension. Besides the cost and the time needed for installation, you should also evaluate the long-term implications of having a permanent structure added to your home. It increases the property’s value, but also adds taxes and extra maintenance expenses.
Simply replacing your conservatory’s roof may be enough to solve some of the most common issues, such as consistent temperature year-round or preventing leaks. Make sure you evaluate all your options before making a decision. Also, be sure to contact your Local Planning Authority before building to make sure your plans follow the correct regulations.
