Replacement Conservatory

Replacement Conservatory

If your conservatory is damaged beyond repair – you’re probably toying with the idea of getting a new replacement conservatory. 

In terms of how long a conservatory lasts – it’s often said as a general rule of thumb that older-style conservatories last around 10 years. 

So, if you’ve inherited a conservatory from a recent house move, or you erected a traditional conservatory from ‘back in the day’ – it’s likely that it’s been subject to some damage through the years.  

But, fear not.  

The beauty of conservatories (in comparison to many other home improvements) is that they can be pulled down with relatively minimal fuss and replaced with an altogether new conservatory that’s likely to last you much longer. 

In fact, you can dismantle a conservatory yourself if you’re confident enough to do so. 

Accommodating a new replacement conservatory shouldn’t be as much hassle as you think – and as DIY conservatory experts, we’d be more than happy to talk you through your options. 

If you’re thinking of replacing like-for-like with a new and improved specification of your old conservatory – feel free to request a brochure today to explore what’s on offer. 

The same applies if you want to replace your old conservatory with something entirely new. Perhaps you’re curious about going for a larger conservatory? 

Again, we’d love to chat with you to discuss the different possibilities out there when it comes to replacing your conservatory. 

If you’ve already got a cost in mind for taking your old conservatory down – why not get a quote for a new conservatory today to get a broad indication of the full replacement price? 

Do I need planning permission to replace an existing conservatory?

No – you won’t need planning permission to replace an existing conservatory. 

Provided the new conservatory meets the requirements for a permitted development (see our conservatory planning permission article for further guidance on this), planning permission won’t be required. 

It’s always worth double-checking with your local authority if you have any immediate concerns at the planning stage – but more often than not, a normal conservatory assembly qualifies as a permitted development. 

How much does it cost to replace an existing conservatory?

Wear and tear is a long term effect for many older conservatories – but at what point are costly repairs no longer worth the money? 

If your considering replacing your conservatory then you’ve probably already gone beyond this point. 

In which case – you’ll probably want to know how much money you’ll need to spend on the replacement. 

Essentially, this is the cost of disassembling the existing conservatory on top of purchasing and installing the new conservatory. 

Getting a cost for the latter is easy enough. Finding out how much it will cost to take down your old conservatory is a little more tricky. 

Taking it down yourself is obviously much cheaper than hiring somebody else for the trouble – although it might take you longer to do so. 

Although this is a much more straightforward task than erecting the new conservatory, there are still a few technical considerations to bear in mind – especially if you intend to build a new conservatory on the old foundations. 

So we wouldn’t advise dismantling it yourself unless you’re 100% confident in doing so.
