Looking to add a conservatory to your property? Read our handy guide to find out how much your conservatory installation contractor will charge for their services.
A conservatory is a construction that is added onto the side of your property and is mostly made from glass. The idea being it will give you extra living space, while allowing more natural light into the property.
Conservatories are designed to capture the warmth of the sun so that you can enjoy the space even though you aren’t fully outside. Therefore, they work best when installed in south-facing positions, though can be installed in any direction. They're multi-purpose too - frequently used for dining, lounging, and even a home office and gym.
The cost of fitting a conservatory will vary depending on the project, but a breakdown of average costs is given below:
|Average cost (per square metre)||$1,200|
|Minimum cost (per square metre)||$900|
|Maximum cost (per square metre)||$1,800|
The typical price of a sunroom ranges between $13,000-$80,000. Within each square foot, the cost covers aspects such as the foundations, frame, windows, roof, doors, interiors as well as the labour.
The cost of conservatory installation varies depending on several factors, including:
Conservatories can be installed to practically any size. This makes them flexible additions to your property, as it doesn’t matter whether you have lots of outdoor space or just a small yard. Price-wise, the larger the conservatory, the more expensive it will be to install.
Consider whether you want to install aspects such as electricity, lighting, or underfloor heating to your conservatory. Then there is the cost of decor, including flooring material, paint, furniture, and accessories.
As well as the materials for your conservatory, you also need people to build it for you. The more complex the job, the more contractors will be required to build your conservatory, which will mean an increased expense.
If you are looking to create more usable space in your home, and maximise the best of the Australian weather, then conservatories are the answer. Conservatories come in a variety of sizes and styles, meaning there’s something to suit every property, not to mention budget. Not only can conservatories add value to your home, but they can be enjoyed in so many different ways. Compared to an extension, conservatories are typically much cheaper to complete too.
