Conservatory installer day rate

Conservatories generally take at least a day to install, as does a replacement roof, so it’s more likely that your installer will give you a day rate. The average day rate for a conservatory installer is £198, but as you can see from our table, the price can vary between £132 - £266 based on your location and the type of conservatory you want.

It’s also more likely that your conservatory installer will charge you more if they’re part of a large company than if they are a small business or sole trader.

How to get the cheapest quotes when looking for a conservatory installer

Getting the cheapest quotes when looking for a conservatory installer involves a combination of research, negotiation and careful consideration. Here's how you can go about it:

Research multiple installers: Gather a list of several conservatory installers in your area. Look for companies with a good reputation, positive reviews and a history of quality work. You can also use HaMuch to help widen your search.

Compare quotes: Reach out to each installer on your list and request quotes for your project. Make sure you provide them with accurate and detailed information about the scope of work, materials you're considering and any specific requirements.

Specify your budget: When requesting quotes, mention that you're looking for competitive pricing within a certain budget range. This can help installers provide quotes that align with your financial expectations.

Avoid up-sells and unnecessary features: While it's important to have a well-constructed conservatory, avoid unnecessary add-ons or features that could drive up costs. Focus on the essentials that meet your needs.

Request breakdowns: Ask installers to provide detailed breakdowns of their quotes. This will help you understand the costs associated with each aspect of the installation, making it easier to identify areas where you might be able to save.

Consider timing: Scheduling the installation during the off-peak season or when installers have less demand could lead to more competitive quotes.

Materials and finishes: Discuss different material options and finishes with the installer. Sometimes, choosing more cost-effective materials or finishes can help you achieve your desired look while saving money.

Avoid extremely low quotes: While cost is important, be cautious of quotes that seem unusually low. They might be mean that the installer uses low-quality materials or is unqualified, which could end up costing you more in the long run due to repairs or replacements.

Remember that while getting the cheapest quote is important, the quality of work and materials should also be a priority. Balance cost-effectiveness with quality to ensure you get the best conservatory that you can afford.

Choosing a conservatory installer

Choosing the right conservatory installer is crucial to ensure a successful project. Here are some important pieces of advice to help you make an informed decision:

Check credentials and experience: Choose installers with a solid track record and substantial experience in conservatory installations. Check if they are a member of industry associations or hold relevant certifications, as this can indicate their commitment to quality standards.

Insurance: Ensure the installer has proper liability insurance to protect you from potential accidents or issues during the project.

Portfolio and references: Ask to see a portfolio of their previous projects, including photos of completed conservatories. Request references from past clients and contact them to ask about their experience with the installer.

Transparency and communication: Choose an installer who communicates openly and is willing to answer your questions. Avoid installers who don't give clear answers or make unrealistic promises.

Warranty and guarantees: Ask about warranties for both the workmanship and the materials used in the installation. A reputable installer should stand behind their work and offer reasonable guarantees.

Contract and terms: Ensure you have a written contract that outlines the project scope, timeline, payment schedule and any terms and conditions. Read the contract thoroughly and ask for clarification on any points you're unsure about.

Quality of materials: Discuss the materials that will be used for the conservatory or conservatory roof. Ask about their durability, energy efficiency and maintenance requirements. A knowledgeable installer should be able to answer all of these questions.

Trust your instinct: Trust your intuition. If you feel comfortable and confident with an installer during your interactions, it's a positive sign.

Remember that your conservatory is an investment in your home's value and your quality of life, so take your time in choosing an installer who meets your criteria for professionalism, expertise and reliability.

Conservatory costs

Conservatory roof replacement cost

Conservatory roof replacement costs can vary based on factors such as the size of the conservatory, the chosen roofing material, complexity of the installation and where you live. On average, however, you can expect the following costs:

  • Polycarbonate roof replacement: Replacing a polycarbonate roof with a new, more efficient polycarbonate roof typically costs around £1,500 to £3,000 for a small conservatory.
  • Glass roof replacement: Upgrading to a glass roof can range from £2,000 to £6,000, with prices increasing for larger or more intricate designs.
  • Solid roof replacement: Opting for a solid roof replacement, which offers better insulation, can cost between £5,000 and £10,000, depending on the conservatory's size and complexity.

Lean-to conservatory cost

A lean-to conservatory has a rectangular shape and a pitched roof that slopes down from the main part of your home, creating a sleek and versatile space. The cost of a lean-to conservatory can vary based on the size, materials and additional features you want. On average, here's a general cost range to consider:

  • Basic lean-to: A simple lean-to conservatory with polycarbonate roofing and standard features can start from around £5,000 to £10,000.
  • Upgraded materials: Opting for a glass roof or higher-quality materials can increase the cost to approximately £8,000 to £15,000.
  • Size and design: Larger lean-to conservatories with more intricate designs can range from £12,000 to £20,000 or more.
  • Additional features: Adding features like underfloor heating, better insulation, or bifold doors can further increase the cost.

These estimates are approximate and can vary based on your location, chosen installer and specific customisation options. It's best to obtain quotes from multiple installers to get a more accurate idea of the cost for your specific project.
