Step by Step Guide

Get the Right Help

You have some important decisions to make, many in areas you may have little or no expertise in. Be sure to only take advice from people or suppliers with the right level of experience and knowledge. A great way of finding out is to meet prospective suppliers in their place of business and ask to view examples of their work. It is also a good idea to speak to their past customers.

1. Quotation

Your local Double Glazing Network Dealer will discuss conservatory options with you to find the style that best suits you and your property. They will then provide you with a free, no obligation quote.

2. Design Process

Technical drawings will be designed and produced so that you are able to visualise your new conservatory before a single brick has been laid or window installed.

3. Technical Survey

A technical survey is carried out by a professional surveyor. They will visit the site in order to take accurate measurements to be used for bespoke manufacturing.

4. Plans

A groundwork plan and a detailed structural plan will be drawn up using the details gathered during the technical survey. These will be used to build your conservatory.

5. Planning Permission

In most instances planning permission is not required as a conservatory is considered a ‘permitted development’. A conservatory is exempt from planning permission provided it meets the criteria specified on the government’s planning portal

6. Building Work

Next the foundations for your new conservatory will be laid. Once these are in place the base walls are built. They form a solid support for the uPVC structure. The uPVC frames are installed and your conservatory is beginning to take shape.

7. Roof Structure

Once the walls and windows are in place your choice of roof will be installed. This is the final stage of the conservatory building process.

8. Your New Conservatory

Your new conservatory is ready for you to enjoy. It’s time to move your furniture in and sit back and relax in your brand new living space.
