ConservatoriesThe above are just a few of the many reasons why some people will consider building their conservatory themselves. 

DIY is not for everybody - but for those who are inclined towards it, DIY can be a very rewarding method (both mentally and financially) of building a conservatory.

Some people will complete the whole work themselves (base and conservatory fitting) or others will prefer to "self manage" the project and use a builder or friend to do, for instance, the base and walls.

Saving Money?

There's not much doubt - the prices often quoted for DIY conservatories do appear attractive. We have seen prices quoted from under 1000 and certainly there are plenty of models in the 2000 - 4000 range. 

It is worth, however, realising that the specification included may not be quite the same as that supplied by the specialist SUPPLY and INSTALL companies. For instance, a conservatory quoted at under 1000 may only feature 10 mm polycarbonate and single glazing. Still an EXCELLENT price for what is provided but nothing like what most people will be looking for when adding an "extra room" to their home.

Most people reading these pages we find, are looking for an extra room and for that the very minimum specification must be double glazing and 16 mm polycarbonate. This means there will be very little to choose from under 2000.

conservatories, conservatoryWe also find that a large percentage of our visitors are not only going the DIY route for money reasons. Many are looking for conservatories for homes they are building or a major renovation or remodelling project. For those visitors in particular we emphasize the need to consider insulation and if their requirement is for, say, a Three Seasons room or Four Seasons room, a read of the content on our "A Four Seasons Room" page will be particularly beneficial.


One Final Thought

As the market for conservatories has grown, many more retailers have decided to concentrate on the DIY market. This has brought even more choice and has in some cases driven price down. That said, we do still feel that SERVICE and after sales service are especially important. Remember, you will have paid for your conservatory either just before or on delivery. Many companies now catering for the DIY sector do not concentrate on conservatories alone - but also retail other products, and while it may be a little unfair we do feel it is wise to give preference to suppliers who concentrate on conservatories only. (Assuming all other factors such as price and specification are reasonably equal.)
