What do you need to know about conservatory design or installation?
There are a few options for conservatory design. Several retailers have conservatory plans you can buy, along with the necessary materials. Alternatively, builders specialising in conservatories can help you along with your plans, or you may even want to hire an architect. Actually installing a conservatory can carry hidden costs: do electrics or plumbing need to be relocated? What will be the long term costs for heating the conservatory? A qualified tradesman should be able to advise you on all potential issues, and having an assessment done is usually free. Be sure to ask your tradesmen about any necessary planning permissions. These will need to be in place before work can begin, or you may find yourself facing steep penalties later on. A simple conservatory may cost £3,000 to install, while more complex designs and pricier materials will quickly increase this cost.
Before hiring a tradesmen, ensure you check that they are adequately experienced with jobs similar to yours and properly qualified to do their work. They should be covered for accidental and liability damage, and should have a guarantee in place for fixing their work if you are unsatisfied with the finished project.
