Do you need planning permission for a conservatory?

This is probably one of the most frequently asked questions that we get about glazed extensions. Our previous blog talks about whether you will need planning permission for your glazed extension. More often than not, your new conservatory will not require planning permission as long as it meets certain criteria. However, if you do, then we are more than happy to help here too and can even provide you with tips for any drawings.

What material can I buy a glazed extension in?

Regardless of whether you opt for a conservatory or an orangery, you can choose from three different materials: uPVC, aluminium, or timber. The best option will depend on your personal preference and practical requirements. For example, if you live in an exposed part of Hertfordshire then we may recommend opting for uPVC as it has fantastic insulation and thermal efficiency qualities.

What conservatory roof options are available?

At Budget Windows we offer two types of conservatory roof options: a tiled roof to maximise the thermal performance of your conservatory, or a thermally efficient glass roof that will maximise the amount of natural light entering your living space.

What is the perfect conservatory style for your home?

Conservatories are the most popular extension choice for UK homeowners and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. To help you, we have written a blog about how to choose the perfect conservatory style for your St Albans home.

Will a conservatory or orangery add value to my home?

According to Zoopla, a glazed extension could increase the value of your home by between 5% and 10%. To add as much value as possible, this will depend on several factors such as quality of build, quality of materials, and location. This is where we are confident that we can help you.
