Getting Conservatory basics right
It’s only natural to try to keep costs down when you are involved in building work, especially for those homeowners lucky enough to be getting a new uPVC or Hardwood Conservatory this year. However, some areas are really important, but probably not immediately obvious to most of us.
Most foundations for larger conservatories are called strip foundations, these are simply a trench which is dug to a suitable depth where there is good solid ground and filled with up to 9 or 12 inches of concrete dependent on what is being built on top of them. You can also do raft foundations or for some smaller rooms use a metal base.
Always use a certified contractor and get multiple quotes from independent sources such as www.lowcostconservatory.co.uk
