Welcome to DIY HARDWOOD CONSERVATORIES UK - your online resource for tips
and advice on buying hardwood conservatories and getting the best deal on
a new hardwood conservatory.
In association with our Sister site
"DIY PVCU Conservatories
UK" we provide the The Definitive Checklist and Essential Handbook of 'Doing It Yourself'.
When it comes to building a conservatory yourself your main motivation for doing so is likely to be driven by two main factors. First, to save a considerable amount of money in achieving your result and second for the satisfaction and pride you will have for your own (very obvious when finished) achievements.
Have your cake and eat it? - in this instance, yes, D-I-Y the job and you may just be able to have your new dream conservatory, and still afford your next holiday!
Technical issues such as building work and planning permission, toughened and K glass, etc., are covered elsewhere on this Website. Follow the relevant menu item for more information.
There are a great many aspects to the subject of doing a conservatory yourself, and for that reason this checklist and handbook has been broken down into these four distinct sections:
Within these four sections, the subjects are further separated into a succinct hit list of "do's and don'ts", so as to be highly informative, and at the same time an easy and uncomplicated read.
Note that here we devote the greater emphasis to "Homework/Planning" and "Starting the job". This is deliberate and is because in doing all your homework, and with sufficient planning and starting the job off on the right foot, the rest should follow naturally if common sense prevails, and the weather is kind to you.
