A DIY project to Build a Conservatory. Bought from Trade Price Conservatories
Colin & Urszula Barrett
Dear Karl and Mandy, Please find here a few photos of our conservatory which we partly constructed ourselves. Due to the nature of our footings we had to have bridged foundations and organised a local builder to do this work. The rest of the work we did on our own, thanks to Phil's very informative videos from your website. We are extremely pleased with the result. Thanks to you and your staff for the excellent help we got during the construction process.
Mr. & Mrs. Lund, Southampton
I felt that I should put pen to paper to thank you for the exceptional service that you provided us with when we recently purchased our large DIY Victorian conservatory from you. I can honestly say that you are undoubtedly the most professional company I have ever dealt with, and you should be very proud of the way you conduct your business. From the first time I called you on a bank holiday; you answered the phone and all of my questions very clearly.
After paying my £50 deposit, the excellent and clear base plans arrived the next day by post. My builder was able to set to work a month later, and he commented that the plans were the best he had seen and had no problems building the base, which was completed within a week. A month later I called you to ask if you could help me to complete and check my order form, you advised me on how to measure correctly all of the plastic areas that match up with my bungalow. I then paid my 50% deposit and within 4 days you telephoned me to confirm my delivery date for the arrival of my new conservatory. Incredibly, you called me the night before to confirm that the delivery would arrive early the next morning. At 7:30am the driver was standing on my doorstep. This is what I call service; at no stage did I ever have any feeling of unease in dealing with you. When the conservatory was unloaded it was perfectly packed with all the delivery paperwork. I was able to check all the parts were complete and only after I was happy I called you to pay the outstanding 50% balance.
As this was a DIY conservatory I had top set about assembling it, this is where you provided me with a gold star service answering questions on any part of the conservatory with a quick phone call. Thank you for your support and we are now the very proud owners of a very large double hipped Victorian conservatory.
People reading this out there may be interested to know that I had quotes of up to £21,500 for this style and size of conservatory to be installed. I now sit here with it all finished with it costing me just £6,500. You have saved me a fortune and given me the pride of having built it myself on my own in 8 days. The DIY Conservatory fitted the base like a hand into a glove as you can see in the photo.

Hi Karl & Mandy, here is a selection of pictures of start to finish of extending & moving the patio to the completion of the conservatory which we are very pleased with.Many thanks for all your help from ordering and to the response to queries during the erecting of the conservatory, could you also pass on my thanks to your delivery man for the help he gave me with the off loading of the conservatory.I must also mention how pleased we were with the quality of the conservatory as I had only seen pictures at point of ordering.
Many thanks again Alan Dalton

Karl at Trade Price Conservatories has been excellent from start to finish. I had a P Shaped double hipped conservatory on my bungalow (see pictures above) and everything went like clockwork. Synseal made a small mistake making the roof, however Karl didn't hesatate to order a new roof out of his own pocket, this gave me time to work on fitting the decking before the new roof arrived, which meant I could start enjoying the conservatory as soon as it was finished. I know all of you out there reading this will think, of course your going to say these good things you probably work for Trade Price, well I can assure you that's not the case and you can feel free to contact me should you need any information about my experience fitting my own conservatory. Karl was there with me all the way through from start to end, the phone support was amazing and if there was anything I was stuck on I just e-mailed a picture to Karl and he sorted the problem out straight away. Their web site was a huge help, with all the information I needed to help answer all of my questions. To be completly honest we were really dreading fitting the roof as it looked really complicated and we allowed 4 to 5 days just on the roof, however once I started fitting the roof it only took me a day and a half.. really easy and I felt a bit silly worrying so much. I was quoted £20,000 for my conservatory through a local company because of the sheer size and it being P shaped. Going through Trade Price saved me £13,000, and as you can imagine we were amazed at the savings. All that we can say is we hope all you out there planning on doing your own conservatory, please go through Trade Price as the savings are amazing and it's so satisfying at the end to know you have built it yourself. Thanks Karl, you’re the best.
Just a few words of thanks to you for everything you have done in helping me to complete my DIY Conservatory. Inevitably there are going to be issues when taking on a project like this, and I had my fair share, but thankfully I had you behind me to sort them out, which resulted in me having a fantastic conservatory to enjoy for many years to come. All the best.

Trade Price were by some margin cheaper than the competition, the product was excellent and bar a couple of minor hiccups in the delivery, everything went very smoothly and said minor hiccups were dealt with urgency. During the build I needed some help and Karl was on hand to help at the end of a telephone and was very helpful. I'm so pleased with the end product and would have no issues recommending Trade Price to anyone! Thanks again and best regards.
Paul Mackay, York:
I am happy to report that the build is over, and it looks magnificent!! The hardest part of the build was the base, requiring tons and tons of sand and gravel!! The walls went up in a day and the roof was assembled and waterproofed on days 2 and 3. Everything fit perfectly and the quality of the materials and the exactitude of the measurements impressed us greatly. The plans and instructions were easy to follow and every part was clearly marked up accordingly. I have to say that I enjoyed every minute of the build, nothing really seemed to be too difficult (except perhaps the house not being entirely plumb!!) The service and support we received from you was fantastic and you couldn’t have been more helpful. I will recommend you to all my friends!! Many thanks again Regards and best wishes.
Like many other people, when we started looking for a conservatory, we contacted several other reputable conservatory companies for quotes, the average being £15,000. We then stumbled upon your site and we couldn’t believe the price difference, so decided to visit your showroom to see for ourselves. We were delighted with the range of conservatories on display, and after discussing our requirements with you, we placed an order. I must admit we were both still a little sceptical about the offer until our conservatory arrived last Friday, and we couldn’t be happier, not only with the product but also with the fantastic communication. It was erected over a weekend (with a little help) and taking into account all costs, we calculated a saving of at least £8500 on the original quotes we have received. A big thank you.
We are delighted with our new conservatory and the service from Trade Price. The product is of high quality and construction was straightforward with no problems. Everything fitted exactly, which was a great help as I completed the entire job on my own. The service from Karl is excellent, they were always available to answer any queries and delivery was exactly as scheduled. The conservatory represents great value for money, we saved about 50% against local company's and have a better quality product. We have no hesitation in recommending Trade Price Conservatories.
Phil & Yvonne:
Well I really do not know what to say apart from THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! 3 Weeks tomorrow my Durabase was delivered and a week later my conservatory. Now as you can see from the pictures it is all finished inside and out! I am not a builder or a big DIY person and taking on this conservatory was a big step for me and the thought of it gave me several sleepless nights but all the instructions that come with both the Durabase, the Conservatory and with the roof I had nothing to worry about. I have done it all myself apart from having a hand to get the roof bars up and the lead flashing i also have a full time job so if i can do it on my own in 3 weeks I'm pretty sure anyone could build one of your Conservatories. I would recommend Trade Price DIY Conservatories to anyone they are a company second to none in their field. Once again Many Many Thanks.
Peter & Diane Chipchase, East Sussex:
Thank you for an excellent conservatory, it went together really well. By the time we had finsihed reading the instructions and put things in order it took about 2 and a half days to complete........that's with 3 pairs of hands. Also I would like to thank you for all your help, you made things easy. Friends and family can't believe how cheap it was, with top quality materials. Once again, many thanks.
Karl & Sue Trayler:
In regards to the conservatory we are absolutely delighted with it. We think it represents great value for money. The product is top quality, frames, doors, roof and glazing were all of a very high manufacture. The construction was quite straight forward, but of course all the information we need you supplied, from CAD drawings, CDs and a fantastic bound book of your products.
The one thing above all, that was so impressive, was the professional way in which you helped and advised, you were always ready to help and guide, we never once felt that you were too busy to help. All questions answered, all calls were always returned.
You arranged the delivery day to suit the customer (rare nowadays) and it was right on time, the delivery was amazing the driver ready to help and assist in its inspection.
Quite simply put, “you deliver what you say you will” that might seem not much of a compliment, but in todays world, it is what any customer wants, and rarely gets, a high quality product at affordable prices, delivered correctly to order, on time, and great after sales service. We would not hesitate in recommending Trade Price Conservatories.
A big “thank you” to you both.
When we first decided to purchase a conservatory we were not sure which way to go. Should we buy a ready made one and have it installed or should we choose exactly what we wanted personally and maybe get help to build it. Our decision was made when we went on to the Internet and found Trade Price Conservatories. There are a lot of helpful people out there, but I have to say Karl, who runs Trade Price Conservatories, is about the most helpful, caring and genuine person I have met. We made a phone call and spoke to Karl who gave us a quote for an Edwardian Conservatory, he then sent us a brochure and CD-ROMs detailing installation, types of glass and the durabase system. This arrived the following day and was so very helpful. I was very impressed with Trade Price Conservatories brochure and packs, I knew that if the actual conservatory was anything like as good as the brochure and the help already received over the phone we would have a First Class Conservatory attached to our home. Of course we placed an order immediately, Karl took us through measurements so that everything would be fool proof. We then sat back and waited for our Trade Price Conservatory to arrive. It arrived bright and early ten days later, what service. Then of course we had to put it all together, I cannot believe how easy it was. My husband and I are not particularly technically minded, but we managed it knowing that Karl was at the end of the phone for any help we needed.
We are now the proud owners of a Trade Price Conservatory, it is quite beautiful and has improved the look of our house and garden and has of course given us more living space. We just love sitting in the conservatory reading our books and feeling as though we are sitting comfortably in the garden even when the weather is awful. We also know that if we have any problems at all with our Trade Price Conservatory we only have to make a phone call and we will get instant help. Karl, thank you so much for everything!
The whole 'Trade Price Conservatory' experience was a complete joy from start to finish. I had shopped around for approximately two months looking for a great product, system and a competitive quote when I came across Trade Price, I contacted Karl to arrange a home appointment, even from the phone call I found Karl very helpful and full of advice and ideas for me to consider prior to our visit. The home appointment went great, Karl helped me design our conservatory and fully explained the whole process from start to finish. I was very keen to build a Durabase system, this again was fully explained in every detail. I was that impressed with the final price of our conservatory that we upgraded to a glass roof, which is great. We saved approximately 25% off the nearest quote. Trade Price supplied all the information after the home appointment that gave us time to fully review prior to making the order. Once ordered the conservatory arrived two weeks later. It was a joy to build and I would highly recommend Trade Price Conservatories.
