Can you Replace a Conservatory with a Conservatory?

Conservatories have been a much-loved part of our homes for decades now. Some have been around for a while though, and may not be at its best. If your conservatory has started look a little worse for wear, or leaks are cropping up, can you replace it with another conservatory?

This is actually something we do quite regularly now, after all we’ve been installing conservatories since the 1980s. Although these would’ve been great at the time, older conservatories tended to be too hot in summer and too cold in winter. Today, the technology in the frames and roofs mean that new conservatories are spaces you can use all year round.

What’s the Process?

The first thing to consider is the size and style of conservatory you want. If the replacement conservatory is the same size as your current one then the process can be straightforward. If the it is a different size or shape then the process becomes more complicated.

When you replace like for like the base is the main thing to consider. If the base is in good condition and can take the weight of the new structure then we can install your new conservatory with ease. If the base is in poor condition, then we need to remove it and construct the conservatory from scratch.

If you want a different size or shaped conservatory then you will need a new base. We are unable to extend a base that is already made as it wouldn’t be suitable for a larger build. If you have an incorrect or uneven base it can compromise the structure of your conservatory.

Whether you need a new base or not to replace your old conservatory, we can help you create a modern conservatory to stand the test of time.

Will you Need Planning Permission?

In most cases, you will likely not need planning permission for a new conservatory. This is a common question, so we’ve produced a helpful guide to planning permission. In the event that you do need it, if you go through us we take care of the whole process for you, removing stress and hassle.

If you’re not buying your conservatory from us, check with your local council via an online portal. It may be that after looking around you might realise that you still want the added space, but just not another conservatory. There are other options, including an extension or orangery. These could provide you with extra rooms or one large luxurious one.

So, there you have it – you can replace a conservatory with a conservatory. There are lots of things to consider, but it’s quite an easy process if you’ve got the right people on the job.
