For a full conservatory project including new base/frames/roof/plastering and flooring, we estimate the project to take 4-6 weeks from start (when the builders are first on site) to finish. For base and frames/roof only would take approximately 3 weeks.
We advise customers to not turn on the underfloor heating for at least a couple of weeks to allow the flooring to completely dry out. When using the heating mat for the first time, it must be started on the lowest temperature
Our electrician will arrange the 1st fix on the 1st or 2nd day of installing the frames/roof. We will then inform them when the plastering is complete so they can contact customer direct to arrange the 2nd fix.
For conservatories stage payments are required. 10% deposit required upon receipt of signed contract. 40% payable upon completion of base works, 40% payable upon completion of roof & frames and final 10% payable upon completion.
