If you are planning on building a conservatory then you will probably have discussed those plans with friends/ neighbours/ relatives. You’ll, no doubt, have been regaled with horror stories of the sort that make you wonder about your sanity for even thinking of such a project. The scary thing is that even when you allow for exaggeration, there is still plenty to put you off.
So, why should you use a “company” at all? Why not just take the cheapest quote? That could be a quote from a one-man-band or the friend of a neighbour’s uncle. The fact is, it might just work. But if you are investing several thousand pounds in a home improvement that will increase the value of your property, why take chance?
So, having taken the decision to engage the services of a company, how do you select the right one from among the multitude that advertise their wares? They all say wonderful things about themselves….funny that. They all seem to have sparkling showrooms and smiling salesmen. What a minefield.
Let’s start by considering the sort of companies that we at Conservatory Prices Online would be happy to recommend. We believe that you should insist on the same qualities that we demand of our Trusted Local Suppliers.
To be trusted with your money and your home, you should choose a local conservatory specialist who has a trading history in your area. Just how long a history is up to you, but if the paint is still drying on the showroom walls, you might want to ask some questions.
The company will be a member of a Competent Persons Scheme such as FENSA or CERTASS (there are others). This is your assurance that the work they do will comply with building regulations, that they have been vetted and inspected by an independent body, that the guarantee you get is properly constructed and that you will be able to back that guarantee with an insurance policy.
The first thing you should be offered is a site visit. During this visit you’ll receive expert advice on the feasibility of your plans, possible problems with your site and suggestions regarding design options.
This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and make alterations to your plan. This is a good time to discuss the detail of the roof glass specification.
This is an area where you have lots of products to choose from and making the right choice is vital if you are to enjoy your conservatory all year round.
Once you’ve made your choices, agreed the price and drawn up the contract, you’ll be contacted by their surveyor. He will be qualified to MTC standards and experienced in building work. He will take the precise measurements necessary to draw the building work plans, the bespoke framework order and the double glazed insulating glass units order. He should go over all of this with you in detail to make sure that everyone fully understands what the final construction will be.
It can be difficult to find a fully accredited installer near you which is why we have sourced some of the best conservatory companies across the UK. Here are some valuable points to look out for.
This ideal company will use builders that take care to site all materials and skips so to cause the least disruption to your garden. They will be tidy and organised and when they are finished, everything will be in place for the installation team to come on site and erect, seal and glaze your new conservatory.
The team will be experienced conservatory fitters and qualified to NVQ or MTC standards. Before they leave, they’ll clean the framework and glass, leaving you to enjoy the new addition to your home.
The last item on the list is the guarantee you receive. That’s one of the reasons we insist on all members of our Trusted Local Suppliers Scheme having a good trading history. You can have confidence that an established local reputation is the best guarantee that they’ll be on hand should you have a problem.
