A DIY Conservatory will save you money
Buying a self build conservatory will save you up to 60% on typical retail installed prices which means the added value to your property will be reflected a lot quicker.
If you buy your conservatory from a local or national installer you are not just paying for the product and the installation, but also for their high overhead costs such as commissions for salesmen, surveyors and fitters, not to mention expensive showroom facilities.
You can eliminate most of these 'add-on' costs buy choosing a self build conservatory and either building it yourself or employing a tradesmen yourself to do the job. Either way you will make a substantial saving in cost and enjoy your new conservatory knowing that it has cost you a lot less than your neighbours.
The following costs are typical of what you will pay to a local double glazing conservatory installer:
Retail salesmen are normally self employed and work on a commission only basis. They will typically earn around 10% of your sale so on a £15,000 conservatory the salesperson will take £1,500.
Many companies will offer finance deals but they will earn commission from the finance provider for your business which will ultimately be reflected in your cost. If you need to finance your new conservatory we would always recommend that you seek independent finance from you bank or building society as it will by considerably cheaper.
Surveyors and fitters will often earn around 10% of the sale price.
Many installation companies do not employ their own ground works teams and will often sub-contract base construction to a builder, adding their profit margin to the cost.
Now add the installation company's overheads such as a showroom, vehicles and administration staff.
Many of our customers originally obtained quotes from an installation company and were amazed at how much money could be saved by choosing to buy a DIY conservatory online and either doing all the work themselves or arranging for tradesmen to build and install it for them.
We provide a high specification supply only conservatories that include base plans and installation guides - all you have to do is build the base and install the conservatory or get someone in to do it for you and you will save a considerable sum.
How much can you save?
Obviously this will depend on the size and style of conservatory and whether you intend to build it yourself or employ a builder to do it for you.
A high specification 4m x 4m Edwardian could easily cost around £15,000 when purchased from a home improvements company. The same conservatory would cost approximately £5,000 from us and if you chose to bring in tradesmen to do the installation for you, you would still be looking at likely total cost of under £10,000. If you chose to do all the work yourself the cost would of course be substantially lower.
As an internet only business we do not have expensive showrooms and overheads to pay for so we can genuinely offer you a very high specification self build conservatory at trade prices. The product we supply will be of the same or higher specification than one installed by an installation company but you are buying direct and saving a considerable amount of money.
The internet provides us with the opportunity to shop for almost anything these days and buying a conservatory is no different. Buying DIY conservatories online allows you to research the market, get several quotes and make an informed decision without any pressure from a salesman, all from the comfort of your own home and at your own pace.
