As well as being a practical, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing extension of your home, an oak framed conservatory could be a worthwhile investment that could add value to your home particularly if it is carefully planned and designed.
How Much Value Does An Oak Framed Conservatory Add?
There are various ways that an oak framed conservatory can add value to your home, depending on the layout of your home and the property. We have highlighted some of the best ways below.
Additional Space For Entertaining Guests
If you have a large and spacious garden area, the addition of an oak conservatory could give you an extra room for your home, without costing as much as a full-blown extension. This will all you and your guests to enjoy your garden even when it’s those cold and chilly winter months. Perfect for dinner parties and other types of social gatherings with the natural light from the outside filling the room, but in a warm and comfortable area.
Keep It In Line With The Look And Feel Of Your Property
The amount of value an oak conservatory could add to your house will largely depend on the design and type you choose. It is wise to create a conservatory that doesn’t look like an eyesore and out of place because if you do and you are selling your home, it could either cause buyers to look elsewhere or offer a price much lower than your asking price. Instead, have an oak conservatory built that echoes and helps to emphasize and complement the character of your house, something to be proud of!
Reduces Your Heating Bills
Depending on your budget for a conservatory, you could make massive savings on your heating bills as a lot of modern conservatories are incredibly energy efficient. Not only can you have an oak conservatory installed with double glazing, but it is also possible to have triple glazing too. As with anything else, the design and placing of the conservatory will determine the amount of energy you may have to use to heat it. For instance, if it is installed in a south-facing position it will be privy to more sunlight, making it a warmer area than if it were placed north-facing.
By choosing a material for your conservatory like oak, you are ensuring that the extension will be there for a good length of time. Oak is a type of wood known for its longevity. While it is true that most woods as a general rule of thumb, last a reasonable length of time and are considerably more durable than other materials; oak stands out from the rest.
Even if you are not selling your home anytime soon, an oak conservatory can continue to add value because it won’t need as much maintenance as other materials.
Sustainable And Environmentally Friendly
With green issues and eco-friendly becoming an increasingly important factor when it comes to buying a house for many people nowadays, choosing to build an oak conservatory over other materials will prick the interest of the environmentally-friendly buyers.
If it has been sourced from a sustainable source, it is actually carbon neutral. This is thanks to the fact that while it grows it absorbs lots of carbon and retains it. Oak also requires less effort and energy to process it, so generally has a lower footprint than other materials, even other timbers.
As you can see there are definitely ways an oak conservatory can add value to your property. It does require a lot of research and planning, considering what is best for the available space and the best style that would match up nicely with the rest of your home.
