Conservatory Base Construction
Conservatory bases are available in a range of different designs. The base size and shape will typically reflect the design of your conservatory. Dwarf walls are a popular choice for many homeowners, but you can also have a flat base and full-height (floor to ceiling) glazing.
Conservatory Base Prices
The average cost of installing a 3m x 3m conservatory base will range from £800 to £1,200 for a flat base, or £1,800 to £2,500 for a conservatory base with a dwarf wall. The size of your conservatory base will influence the cost, with larger conservatories costing more. Also, if you require additional features, such as underfloor heating, the conservatory base construction cost will be higher.
Steel Conservatory Bases
As well as the solid (brick and concrete) conservatory bases mentioned above, you can also install a steel base. Steel bases often cost more than a solid base, with prices for a 3m x 3m base from Durabase costing from £1,100 to £1,900. These bases do come with an impressive 25 year guarantee, and are quick to assemble.
It is important to consider any additions that you would like before installing a conservatory base. For example, underfloor heating and radiator piping should be installed as part of the construction, as it will cost significantly more to install once complete. Your chosen conservatory installer can provide more information about the different options available.
DIY Conservatory Bases
If you are installing your own conservatory, you will need to start with the base. There are many options now available to make the installation easy for DIY enthusiasts, including the use of pre-fabricated conservatory steel bases. Durabase is one of the most popular DIY bases for conservatories.
A popular alternative to traditional conservatory bases is the Durabase system. These bases are popular with the DIY market as they provide cheap and fast installation. Durabase conservatories require minimal foundations, and the steel conservatory base can be erected within a few hours.
They look great, have a long life span and are also easy to remove, if required. The Durabase collection is available in many different designs, and many also include dwarf walls and other popular features.
