Pool enclosures

Pool enclosures act as a swimming pool conservatory, giving homeowners the best of both worlds. You’ll be able to enjoy your pool in both summer and winter, without the worries of bad weather affecting your swim.

Pool enclosures allow you to use your swimming pool throughout the year and they come at just a fraction of the cost of conventional pool buildings. They provide a sturdy, yet somewhat lightweight structure for you to house your swimming pool.

Any type of swimming pool can be enclosed, even difficult sites with poor access. There are a number of designs and you can opt to have a retractable enclosure too, giving you the opportunity to fully enjoy the warm weather when it hits.

Pool enclosures often need planning permission, just like conservatories and orangeries. Building Regulations will also have to be met and it’s vital that everything is compliant.

Pool enclosure benefits

A pool enclosure is something that should be considered by everyone owning a swimming pool as the benefits are very rewarding.

Pool buildings:

  • Stop nuisance insects such as flies and wasps from getting trapped in the pool, allowing you to enjoy the area without aggravation

  • Give you the chance to enjoy your pool all year round, no matter the weather

  • Eliminate the chances of debris entering the swimming pool, such as leafs and branches

  • Need little maintenance, especially the aluminium framed enclosures which will not rust or deteriorate over time

  • Are covered by homeowner insurance schemes, to give you peace of mind in case something does go wrong

  • Will cut your expenses for pool chemicals to make the water safe

Average cost

On average, you can expect to spend around £6,500 on a new standard conservatory. There are lots of different factors that can have an impact on price, including how straightforward it is to dig the foundations, the height and width of the conservatory and extras such as brick, dwarf walls and windows/doors. The type of conservatory you want to install will also have an impact on the cost.

Advantages for Pool enclosures

  • uPVC is low maintenance. It doesn’t need treating with anything, and you can clean it by simply wiping it with a damp cloth
  • uPVC is durable. It won’t rot or warp when it’s wet, like wood can. It also won’t fade when exposed to sunlight.
  • uPVC is long-lasting. If a uPVC conservatory has been built well with quality materials, it can last at least 35 years.
  • uPVC conservatories are often cheaper than other conservatories, as plastic is generally less expensive than wood or aluminium
  • uPVC is energy efficient. It doesn’t conduct heat, which means it’s an excellent insulator. uPVC keeps the heat in your home so you don’t waste energy or money.

Disadvantages for Pool enclosures

  • Despite its durability, uPVC can become brittle over time. This means that under impact it could shatter or splinter.
  • uPVC is a commonly used material, and can look cheap when compared to options like wood or aluminium
  • uPVC is not environmentally friendly. Its production gives off carbon emissions and uPVC isn’t biodegradable

Pool enclosures FAQs

How can I get rid of my old conservatory?

A good way to get rid of your conservatory is to sell it. Depending on its condition you may not make much money from it, but it’s an easy and financially viable way to get your old conservatory dismantled and out of the way. If you are replacing it, the installer can easily remove this for you completely.

Can I use my conservatory all year round?

Modern conservatories are well insulated and have double glazing. This means that you can use them in winter, as well as in the warmer seasons. Different roof options such as a glass roof or a titled roof will allow a conservatory to become simply another room in the home.

How long do conservatories last?

This varies according to the quality of the conservatory and installation work. If these are both high quality, your conservatory should last at least 25 years. But obviously if you notice deterioration or leaks, then this could be an early warning sign that time is running out.

Do I need Building Regulations approval for a conservatory?

Most conservatories won’t require Building Regulations approval. However, if you’re planning a conservatory more than 30 square metres in floor space this may be required. If there is no linking door between the home and conservatory then Buildings Regulations approval will be needed too. For more information and to ensure getting everything right, speak to the local council or planning officer.

Do I need planning permission for a conservatory?

Many conservatories fall under permitted development which means they don’t require planning permission. There are exceptions to this though, especially if you’re looking to have a large conservatory installed. Read our guide on conservatory planning permission for more information.

How can I get privacy in my conservatory from prying neighbours?

Whilst you may think conservatories are nearly all made from glass, this doesn’t have to be the case. If you live in a built-up area you could have a tiled rooftop to enable extra privacy, use obscure glass and even invest in blinds. Be aware that solid walls are possible but if the conservatory is manufactured with less than 50% of glass, you’ll need Buildings Regulations approval.

What are the other options for conservatory material?

Whilst uPVC is the UK’s favourite because it’s cheap to manufacture and has a number of qualities, there are also options available including aluminium and hardwood. Both are popular for various reasons. Aluminium, as a metal, is the strongest and most durable material available for conservatories. On top of this it won’t rust, warp or crack. Hardwood offers a more traditional appeal and whilst it requires high maintenance levels, is perfect for conservation areas and listed buildings.

Do conservatories need to be double glazed?

In 2002 the Government amended Building Regulations governing the replacement and installation of glazing units. For the first time, windows had to meet energy efficiency standards and tough thermal performance levels. For new window units you must have efficiency ratings of at least a level C.
