Proposed changes to building regulations in 2010 could add some thousands of pounds on to Conservatory Costs – Matthew Glover, Managing Director of Conservatory Outlet, explains that people should look to buy now before these regulations start to come into force.
The construction industry says that proposals in a draft consultation for the 2010 version of Part L of the Building Regulations will see home extensions become more expensive for people looking to invest in their house.
Consumers who are looking to add extensions could be forced to spend thousands more pounds improving the energy efficiency of the rest of their property, under the new proposals. Matthew Glover believes the extra cost is likely to be around and additional £2,000.
These new regulations will cover Conservatories for the first time and that means higher carbon reduction targets which would include electric heating, floor, wall and glass restrictions to make the conservatory more energy efficient.
Matthew Glover added, “Conservatory Outlet build their conservatories to the highest standard, virtually complying with building regulations. But the requirement to upgrade other areas of the property at the same time will undoubtedly add to the cost of a project.”
For those wishing to avoid extra costs involved with the proposed regulations, the only way to do so is to have their conservatory or orangery built this year (in 2009).
With recession and housing crisis, there are currently some great Orangery and Conservatory Deals to be had. We currently offer a massive 30% off of conservatories and offer the chance to pay on finance, not having to pay for 12 months and keeping a the low price that we currently offer.
Conservatory Outlet is a manufacturer of PVC Windows, doors and conservatories with showrooms in Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cheshire, Cumbria, Shropshire, Mid Wales and South Wales.
