Many homeowners have a redundant conservatory attached to their home which is never used because it’s cold and draughty in the winter and more like a sauna on a hot summer’s day.
With around 3 million conservatories installed in the UK you may well be the owner of a tired, worn out conservatory that is probably shut off from your main home or just used for storage. It may be a conservatory you inherited when you bought your house or it might be one you bought from Wickes or B & Q a few years back that hasn't quite lived up to expectations.
Conservatories have long been regarded as the affordable route to extending your home with minimum outlay and the latest generation of construction methods and glazing innovations ensure that they can now be used all year round providing they are ordered to the correct specifications.
Conservatories are currently exempt from building regulations subject to certain criteria such as the position, size and intended use of the conservatory. However there are changes being proposed..
Self build conservatories are a very cost effective solution of adding a conservatory to your home and offer superb value for money especially if you are happy to undertake the installation yourself.
