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.
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?
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.

Great service great price lovely conservatory really friendly staff talk you through every stage delivered on time and looks great
Outstanding service, communication and quality from the start of the process to the finish. Our installers were amazing, nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail was fantastic, they really took pride in the job they were doing. My conservatory is everything and more than I expected and has already made a huge impact having the extra space. Already planning my next one with them, i would highly recommend them.
So everything arrived on time and in order. Everything is good quality. The only thing that lets it all down are the instructions. They are useless. They don't tell you anything as they are made for many different types of conservatory. Apart from that it looks good and took a week to put together with just two of us doing it. Staff are helpful though and overall I'm pleased.
Having been unsure about how a UPVC conservatory would look on our traditional stone house, we are absolutely delighted with the result. Before ordering, a year ago, we were shown round the factory so we were able to see the structure and good quality at a reasonable price. The showroom was in the process of re-design, but the Conservatory Land colleagues were very helpful in showing us the various design combinations available and helped us through one or two of our changes of plan without issue.
The delivery of all the glass, frames, doors and parts went smoothly. The construction ( our own builders) went well and advice and help was still easily available to us, throughout.
We love our conservatory and spend a great deal of time, in all seasons, in our light and roomy new living space.
Thank you ConservatoryLand. (Photos sent previously)
Excellent sales, delivery process and fitting.
Overall was a good experience,from start to delivery ,I was a little worried buying online so I was nvited down to the factory which I have to say was impressive they manufacturer everything on site and you can see everything being made. I placed the order and was given a date for delivery which arrived on the exact date even the driver was helpful unloading and giving advice All instructions was good and used the utube videos if got stuck I had to call the helpline just once which they quickly answered my question ,I am in the building trade so didn't really struggle with any thing and the finished product is superb ,the major niggle I have was on the French doors the locking mechanism is not adequate for security is Very basic is no hook system or deadbolts therefore would be Very easy to break in ,I have upgraded All the mechanism to a higher version which wasn't a big cost , maybe if this is standard they should offer a upgrade pack as this is probably the most important part keeping safe .
