Conservatories ‘better value than extensions’

A conservatory could be a worthwhile investment for people hiring builders in Oxford if they wish to add another dimension to their home.

According to Andrew Leech, a spokesman for the National Home Improvement Council, this type of property addition can make more financial sense than an extension.

He described conservatories as something that can be easily absorbed into the cost of an abode, as well as becoming an extra selling feature.

However, this is not the same for extensions which often cost a great deal more and may not reap any monetary rewards.

“A full blown masonry extension costing upwards of £30,000 may not pay for itself in the short term because the full sale value of the house will not be reached,” Mr. Leech continued.

At the end of last month, director of external affairs at the Federation of Master Builders Brian Berry explained that unless more first-time buyers enter the market, there is going to be a shortage of new house builds in the UK.
