Refurbish an existing conservatoryPosted 22nd November 2012 in DIY Conservatories
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.
Whether it is constructed from timber, upvc or aluminium the structure may look very tired and out of date. It probably has very basic specifications such as a thin polycarbonate roof that is not only very noisy when it rains but also limits natural light. The windows and doors may have very thin basic double glazing or the conservatory may be so old that it is only single glazed.
Easily replace an existing conservatory
Using your existing base work means there are no planning issues to contend with and no builder is required so the cost involved is surprisingly low but the rewards are high. Replacing an unused conservatory will enhance the external appearance of your home and provide much needed additional living space at a very affordable cost. You can use your refurbished conservatory as a dining room, playroom, office or just somewhere you can relax and unwind.
There are many different styling options which you can incorporate such as bifold doors and solar control glazing or you could simply want to replace your existing conservatory design like for like but with all the advantages of the latest thermally efficient materials.
