How long does it take to build a conservatory?
Building a conservatory depends on the design and the size. Some lean-to conservatories can take just a day whilst big more complicated ones can take weeks. The installers surveyor will have an idea of the installation times.
The actual process of erecting the conservatory frame and installing the glass is relatively quick, however there are other stages that need to be considered in the process and these will differ depending on what you include in your design.
All new conservatories will require a foundation to be laid. This will require a trench and brickwork to be laid and for a cement base to be poured and to set. If you are having a design that includes a dwarf wall, this will need to be finished prior to the installation of the frame.
Other stages in the process of building a conservatory include plastering on the interior walls and the addition of electricity outlets. You may also need to have access to the conservatory added from your home if there is not existing space.
Your local installer and surveyor have experience in the design and construction of many different styles of conservatory, and they will be able to give you a clear idea of exactly how long the work will take and how soon you will be able to enjoy your new living space.
Can a conservatory have a different coloured frame on the inside?
Our members’ uPVC Conservatory frames are available in a wide variety of different colours and finishes that complement the look and style of your home both inside and out. When you speak to an Independent Network installer, they will talk you through the different options which include choosing a different coloured frame on the inside to give you a light and airy look combined with a more contemporary dark colour on the outside.
Can I use a conservatory all year round?
Yes, a modern conservatory with a UPVC frame offers excellent insulation against cold winter days, meaning that you can use it as a complement to your living space all year round.
Older conservatories had a reputation for being cold and draughty in the winter and getting too hot to use in the summer without the doors adn windows being open, but this no longer needs to be the case.
Modern UPVC framed conservatories offer excellent thermal efficiency without the ability for draughts to get in through any gaps, and with double glazed windows, heat loss is minimal meaning that you can enjoy the view from your conservatory on the coldest days.
Controlling heat during the hot summer months is also possible in a modern conservatory. Your installer will be able to advise about different types of glass that can be more heat reflective and prevent the space from overheating. Good ventilation through a variety of window options in the conservatory also help to manage heat properly on warmer days and make your conservatory an enjoyable place to be during the summer.
Is there a cost difference if I choose a colour on one or both sides of my product?
Yes, if you choose any other colour rather then 'standard white' as a colour internally or externally there is an extra cost. Visit our visualiser to get an estimate for your home improvement or speak to your local installer for further detail.
