    Same size with one solid wall and other half brick, flooring, plastered walls about £10k. Was a few years ago.

    Is it a whole new conservatory or a replacement? If new, i.e. Foundations need to be dug, it sounds about right.

    Yep, new conservatory. One solid wall, 2 glass (with dwarf wall inc patio doors). Tiled roof – because we want it to be more of an all year round room…

    No idea, but based on the one we had I’d put underfloor heating in.

    That was my next question….how much for 4 x 3 of underfloor heating (as part of the build – not retrofitted)?

    We have been quoted around £14k for a 4m x 3m conservatory – with solid, tiled roof (and 2 velux windows) finished to screed/plaster with skirting board/window sills.

    West Mids BTW

    Does this sound about right?

    Cheers

    Get whoever is tiling to do it, including insulation, you’re looking at around 8-900 all in. Based upon 10mm insulation boards, 200w pm mat, screed finish.

    Having had a conservatory some time back I would be tempted to get a quote for a brick extension with large glass windows (so similar to the conservatory quote you have now) a proper roof with a glass atrium. Then compare costs. It may be more expensive but should be warmer and I think the roof will give more light than the velux.

    Our conservatory was classic too hot in summer too cold in winter, perfect spring and autumn.

    So sloping roof, what insulation and interior finish,

    electrical work ,plugs and lights,

    timber ,upvc or metal,framed windows,

    Heating wether off your existing system, new convector heaters, underfloor, electric or water,

    Number of opening sashes,windows

    Interior finish plaster, plasterboard,pain or cladding,

    internal insulation in walls,

    doors,sliding or hinged, from house into conservatory and external doors,

    type of glass, toughened or laminated ,self cleaning or energy efficent,

    foundations required,planning permission,drain check cant build over a drain,

    All question to be asked before a quote price should be given, or a big shock in store for all.

    Been there.

    drain check cant build over a drain

    Well you can, you just need permission.

    So basically you don’t feel confident enough to trust that the builder is not trying to rip you off? Why else would you ask a question that can’t possibly be answered with the amount of detail you’ve given? It’s like asking. “How much does a car cost?”

    Sips extensions look good value and a very easy build . I suggest you get one then post pictures and a reviews so I can decide wether to go for one or not.
