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.
