We’ve now finished the internals and I am absolutely amazed at the quality for what it cost,Some friends have just had one from a well known competitor and paid twice the price.I can definitely recommend the heat guard roof given the weather we have had recently.

James & Jo Sharples in Chandlers Ford:

Hi Karl and Mandy just a line to say thanks for all your help the diy conservatory was very easy to put up we use it all the time.It was delivered on time with no item\'s missing the driver was very helpful and we would recommend Trade Price to family and friend\'s here are some photo\'s of conservatory once again thank you the Watkins family.

 

Sue Watkins in Essex:

To Mandy and Karl Thank you for your excellent service and product.Only two small blank window packers missing which were promptly delivered free of charge(Also helpful advice on fitting the frames from Karl)Even with the cost of transport to France and a builder to construct the base we saved over 30% of the cost on an equivalent size conservatory here plus have a superior product.

Dennis in France:

 

Hi Karl and Mandy, The conservatory is almost complete just some finishing touches inside to do. I am absolutely amazed at the size of it for what it cost,I know people who have paid the same amount for one half the size and they are no where near the same quality.Everyone who has seen it can not believe what I paid.I would definitely recommend the heat guard roof it is pleasant to use even in blazing sunshine. Thank you for all of your help and advice,I would recommend you any time and have already spread the word about your website.

Mark Pawley from Leicester:

 

Dear Karl and Mandy Finally got round to sending photos of our finished conservatory.Would like to say a big thanks for all your help during the progress of its construction.It was very helpful to know that someone was always available for any advice when needed.Would have no problem recommending your product and prices to anyone, can\'t believe how we managed without this before. We are thoroughly enjoying this addition to our home and to be able to look out into the garden is brilliant(even when its raining!) Once again thank you very much for all your help.

Mark and Christine Smith in Kent:

 

Although it is a bit daunting dealing with a company for the first time I must admit that the service and assistance received was first class.Communication was excellent and the conservatory kit arrived on the due date. I elected to get a semi-retired builder to do the ground works and build up to the dwarf wall level (mainly for speed) and then I constructed the conservatory kit.Instructions provided were very good and as it was a straightforward conservatory I was able to complete the build all on my own.Everything seemed to go together as designed and I can honestly say that there were no major problems at all.The builder did return at the end in order to do the lead flashing and said he was very impressed at the quality and the finished result. I would like to consider myself as a fairly competent diy person and this was certainly within my capabilities.I would be more than happy to use this company again.

Roy Fields in Taunton:

 

Dear Karl & Mandy, I would like to thank you both for all your help in supplying me this great conservatory.I have never fitted or had fitted a conservatory before so the help I received from you was invaluable. Firstly I would like to say that I invited some conservatory companies to quote to carry out the complete job,this was to lay the concrete base and to erect and second fix the conservatory.The cheapest quote I received to do this in golden oak Edwardian style was £8000 which was way above my budget.This then made me consider either having a white conservatory or a lean too style. The cheapest quote I got for a white conservatory was £7500 fitted and some £6000 for a lean too style. When I looked into these conservatories I was put off as I really wanted the golden oak Edwardian style to match the rest of the house. I started to look on the internet and came across trade price conservatories and noticed how cheap they were.At first I thought they must be cheaply made and of poor quality to be this cheap.I knew someone that fitted conservatories so I asked him to look at the specification of the conservatory which was available on the website along with the build instructions. He advised me that the conservatory looked to be of really good quality at a great price. I then advised you of my size and specification and paid my deposit.I sent you a sketch with some basic dimensions of the back of the house with some details of what I wanted along with some photos.You then sent me out some good plans which I gave to the builder who was going to build the base and the dwarf wall. The builder said that the plans were very good and commenced the building work. I then paid you half the money for the conservatory with the rest to pay on delivery. At this point I asked if you could get the conservatory erected for me which you advised you could. From this point onwards the conservatory was delivered on time within 2 weeks of payment and a date was set to erect the conservatory within a few days of delivery.The conservatory was then erected very quickly and to an excellent standard in my opinion and my builders.I arranged for the builder to then come back to plaster a fit flooring etc to the conservatory. The conservatory is now finished and I am absolutely over the moon with it.It has really opened up my home and created a great extra space for me to spend time in. I would also like to add that I got the conservatory totally finished for £6000 which was some £2000 cheaper than my original cheapest quote.

Mark Stock in Essex:

 

To Karl and Mandy, we are so pleased with the conservatory it is stunning!everything has been outstanding from start to finish excellent communication and service,the delivery was prompt the conservatory quality is excellent and Phil whom which you advised to fit it was fantastic,he worked extremely hard but also fast and he was very professional.We would recommend your company to anyone and everyone it has saved us £1000\'s literally,thank you so much once again two very happy customers.

Tony and Lisa in Southampton:

 

 

Andrew Tancock In Devon:

A Big Thank you to Mandy and Karl for good customer care when we bought our conservatory off them.We never bought a conservatory before so my husband did some research on the internet and he saw Trade Price Conservatories.No one could match the price or get it cheaper not even the builder putting it up he said we had a good price so we went ahead and ordered it.We found it cheaper to buy from Trade Price Conservatories,my husband did the foundations himself,got a builder in to do the brick work and another builder in to put up the conservatory.This cost us a total price of 6500.00 all in.The builders who put it up said it went up really easy,had no problems at all and all went together well.We all love the conservatory,our 7 year old daughter loves to do writing and reading in there,our 4 year old boy plays with his cars in there but also both call it there quiet room.My husband and I like to go in and watch a bit of tv but most of all go in to relax because it feels like we are in the garden.This conservatory has added extra space to our family home and we all benefit from it in one way or another. Thanks xxx.

 

Lesey and Mat in Kent:

Dear Karl & Mandy, I am writing to inform you that we have now all but finished the back garden and conservatory and wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for all your help. When Mat and I decided we wanted to extend into the garden we were a bit daunted,we knew what we wanted but when we looked around we were shocked at how much it all would cost,the various quotes we received just for the conservatory were 10k and above.After seeing your advert and looking through the designs and prices we figured we could do 90% of the work ourselves but were still a little hesitant about buying on-line,if you know what I mean.Mat persuaded me to go down to your showroom to discuss the options (little did I know at the time he really wanted to visit the Triumph dealership up the road to get new leathers!!) and talk to someone face to face.When we arrived we were slightly surprised,we did imagine a warehouse type of set up with a pushy salesman and heaps of windows and bits scattered around like a bargain basement shop.Your showrooms were excellent,we were not pressured at all and Karl took his time and showed all the designs we were interested in and explained each process on how to self build and assured us that if there were any problems he was only a phone call away.We pretty much decided there and then and placed an order, again we were surprised that only a small deposit was required and all we needed to do was ring up and order the conservatory when the base and over-site was nearing completion,which we did.The conservatory arrived exactly when we were told it would,all of the pieces were present,well wrapped and looked even before it was erected,very good quality.Mat had enlisted the help of a friend who replaces windows and had done a conservatory before albeit a while ago and it went up in two 3/4 days over the weekend.They did encounter one problem which Karl explained over the phone,not really a problem just getting the \"knack\" of fitting a part.Once erected Mat laid the floor and fitted the furniture in and that is now were we spend most of our time!Not to sound corny but it has transformed our family,we spend more time together,use the garden a lot more and it is a nice place to relax in the evening,especially in this weather.We just wanted to say thank you for an excellent service from start to finish and have attached some photos (i will send better when weather improves),we would be happy for you to use this letter and photos as a testimonial for you company.Many thanks once again and best wishes for the future.

 

Hi Karl, Photo of our conservatory,just in time for the good weather!Impressed with Karl and Phil from start to finish,this was a large conservatory to put up,many thanks to Phil who did a superb job,working late both days to complete the job, would recommend you both to anyone.Our three golden retrievers love it!!

Nick King in Hampshire:

 

Hi Mandy, I have sent some off my pics of the conservatory it is finished now except for the solid wood floor.I would like to thank you and Karl for all the help you gave me in selecting my conservatory.The instructions and video where a great help and I had no problems following them.I am very pleased with it and the blue glass roof was well worth the extra money!

Jeff and Elaine in Stockport :

Dear Trade Price Conservatories, Sorry for my very long delay,I have been without a laptop until recently. Me and my family are over the moon with our new conservatory,the extra space has made a huge difference to our house.I have enclosed some photographs for you to use on your website.Once again,thank you so very much for a wonderful service.

Laura Woodcock in cheshire:

 

Hi Karl & Mandy, Sorry am so late in getting these pictures back to you but have been away working and putting up my daughters conservatory supplied by your good self. Just a few words to thank Karl & Mandy & all the team for making it affordable for myself & wife to have a new conservatory,the Durabase system fitted like a glove quick and very easy to erect,the conservatory was to a high standard,very easy to erect,carried out all the work by myself even the lead flashing.Once again a big thank you to Karl, Mandy & all his team.

Perry Arnold in East Sussex:

From start to finish Karl and Mandy were excellent,on hand with any questions we had,driver arrived on time as promised and my builder commented it was one of the best conservatories he had erected,no problems at all!We use it everyday as a playroom come second lounge and it\'s just what we need,I\'d definitely recommend Trade Price to anyone looking for a conservatory on line.

Nick Walker in Nottingham:

Well this is just about the finished article.Once again I cant say how pleased I was with the product quality and the ease of instructions.We were thinking of renting the living room out now as it is now obsolete.I spent months pondering on buying such a big investment on the internet i neednt have worried,Karl and Mandy were really helpful at all times,the delivery was bang on,the driver a star and the product superb.

Tim, Stockton on Tees:

 

Dear Karl and Mandy The service provided by Trade Price Conservatories has been excellent.If we have had any queries they have always been quick to respond and sort out any problems we may have had.The communication and help provided has been first class and the fitter worked extremely hard all day to get the conservatory finished when he had been running late finishing off a previous job before he came to us.I would thoroughly recommend Trade Price Conservatories to any one and advise they to look at the useful and informative website.

Tracey Spokes in Oxfordshire:

 

Dear Karl and Mandy, As promised some photo\'s of our finished conservatory,we would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for a great product all our neighbours are really jealous!!!! it was straight forward to assemble and delivery was on time a thoroughly good service we will have no hesitation in recommending your company.

Paul Liddy in Devon:

 

Hi Karl & Mandy, I recently completed the conservatory and thought I would send some pickies. My wife and I had always dreamed of relaxing in our own conservatory but the prices being asked we couldn\'t afford.Then a friend suggested buying a kit and building it myself.Before purchasing the conservatory kit I researched for a month to get the best value for money and Trade Price won hands down.The price was so good that I was a bit concerned that maybe the quality would be inferior to others but when it arrived I was delighted.Everything was delivered right on time and each item was numbered to coincide with the drawings supplied by Karl & Mandy, his made assembly a dream.Being retired I thought the base might be a step to far for me,So a builder friend of mine took charge of that and I did the labouring.The base and dwarf wall where constructed to the dimensions supplied by Karl and sure enough the conservatory fitted perfectly. The actual assembly of the conservatory and roof I completed on my own without any problems but ideally it would be far easier with two pair of hands. With every item being numbered it was so easy to assemble,if you can manage flat pack furniture then you will be just fine with this conservatory. With everything completed it was then down to my better half to choose the furniture and now we can sit and relax for hours in our new extension. Last week I had a double glazed window replaced in our bedroom and the rep\' was amazed at the price and quality of the conservatory,he informed me that based on their prices I must have saved myself £10,000 by buying a kit and completing it myself.

Keith & Joyce Basnett in Wirral:

 

Dear Karl and Mandy The finished product and I am so proud of it as an enthusiastic DIY man.The product is excellent the service 1st class and all made so easy with a step by step assembly plan, on top of that any queries Karl was only too willing to answer,just a telephone call.Ohh! nearly forgot to mention most important the price, I reckon it would have cost at least twice the price maybe 3 times more to have a builder do this, you know what I think I did a better job.

Dave Mainwaring in Liverpool:

From the first enquiry to fitting the final screw and window - nothing was too much trouble.Our conservatory was delivered exactly on time - to the minute almost!! The driver was helpful,courteous and knowledgeable.Everything needed was there.Three of us erected the 6m x 3m conservatory in two days - none of us having done one before.We had a few slight hiccups - BUT Karl was always at the end of the phone to sort it out (hope you didn\'t get too fed up with us?) The finished article is more than we hoped for - sometimes it is a bit daunting taking on a task like this The reflective roof and special K glass has worked wonders during the recent heatwave We have attached a few photos to show the construction and finished article - but one thing is certain, if we ever need another conservatory we know where to come to - Trade Price. Thanks very much for your help.

Malcolm & Karin Clarke in Lincs:

Dear Karl & Mandy I purchased my conservatory from an Ebay add,I did phone and speak to Karl before making my choice of style,his help and knowledge was great and there was no sales pitch or pushing to buy.I paid a £50 deposit and got my floor plans, once built the rest of the purchasing process was simple,straight forward and a pleasure,with helpful discussions and suggestions to the type of roof that I required.I finished building and adding the internal decor about a month ago and only added blinds last week,I am now awaiting my furniture delivery tomorrow and looking forward to using it fully.I have never built a conservatory before,but can honestly say that any competent DIYer can do it, yes I had some help and I was glad of it and I must say that the hardest Part was digging the footings and preparing the base.I did have a bit of a problem attaching the outside roofing bars to the wall crossbar, but a quick call to Karl sorted it all out - discard the bolts! o the roof instructions could have been a little better.I was very impressed with the service,delivery and quality of the conservatory,I have had a friend who fits double glazing,look it and he could not believe the price or quality,stating that to have one fitted it would have cost me 4 - 7 times the price that I paid.I may be in touch in September, as I am now thinking of fitting a front porch.

Richard Chattaway in Kent:

Hi Karl and Mandy, sorry for the delay had to finish off the paving and as from the attached photos it is now complete,having priced up a conservatory with other companies you came out the best also having read other peoples comments it did put our minds at ease had a builder do the ground work,roof flashing and plastering but myself and my son completed the task within 3 days and i must say it was a pleasure to do everything went together perfectly and the quality of the product shows thanks very much for your excellent service and would recommend without hesitation

Steve and Joanna in Essex:

 

Hi Karl and Mandy, Very helpful,made exactly to specifications,never built a conservatory before and I did 90% of the build on my own.A true DIY Conservatory,with a professional finish.We kept a photo diary of the build,so I have attached lots for you to see as well as the finished product.We were extremely pleased with the service received from Trade Price Conservatories,very simple,quick process,we can\'t believe the difference it has made to our home!!It was delivered at 7am, and when Stacey got home from work,it was up!!!

Keith & Stacey in leicester:

 

Hi Karl and Mandy A picture of our conservatory thanks for the brilliant service.

Carol Breck in France:

 

Dear Trade Price Conservatories, Thank you so much for your easy to erect lean-to Conservatory,at first it looked a daunting task to erect but it went up with surprising ease and was very good value, my gran is very pleased.

Lee Hatfield in Berks:

Dear Karl & Mandy May I take this opportunity to thank you for an excellent service,from quotation through to final delivery everything was simplicity itself.As you will see from the attached photos we have something to be proud of (not my words but our guests).All in all the build process took about 4 days including rain breaks with a well thought out window system that went together very easily.One word of advice to any would be builders, remember to remove the protective tape from the ridge BEFORE you fix it!

Martin Allen in Glous:

Great product easy to assemble very helpful staff 10/10

Rod Darling in W Sussex:

Hi Karl and Mandy, The conservatory went through the winter really well and the standard of materials and manufacture are excellent.

Tim Harries in Oxon:

Hello Mandy and Karl, Attached photographs of our completed conservatory.Phil did an excellent job, finished in one and a half days in the heavy rain and sunshine.One shot of Phil praying for the rain to stop.Very impressed with the total service from TPC Limited from start to finish.

Josephine and Richard McManus in Surrey:

We were very impressed with the quality of the Conservatory we bought from you, it took slightly longer to erect than we thought but that was down to the time of year which was when we had all the bad weather in December and January, it was finally completely finished in March Your after and before sales service was excellent and would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone wishing to buy a DIY Conservatory.

Ann McCormack in Merseyside:

We purchased our conservatory in 2009, we are extremely pleased with it and wouldn\'t hesitate to recommend Trade Price Conservatories to anyone. Best thing we ever did.

Mrs J Powell:

I was fortunate in that one of my sons is a small builder,and building conservatories is something he does two or three times a year.Rob took charge, therefore,of the foundations and dwarf wall construction,and I did as I was told!Having said that,there was nothing difficult about this,it would simply have taken me a lot longer on my own.The actual erecting of the conservatory was done between us,was very straightforward,and was completed in a day. Everything fitted as it should,and Rob who has built one or two iffy conservatories in his time,was very complimentary about the quality of this building.Having got the thing waterproof,we set about the interior,and am very pleased with the way that has turned out.As said above,the consequent work outside was slow,but is now more or less complete, though it has turned out to be pretty much a full re-design of our garden! Finally,I would have no hesitation at all in recommending your company and your conservatories to prospective diyers.The quality is excellent and the cost savings very impressive.We have spent just short of £7,000,on what Rob estimates would have cost us £18,000 - £20,000 if we had simply employed a builder to do the whole job.The £7,000 even includes paying Rob for his labour albeit at mates rate.

Tony Harvey :

Just wanted to say Trade Price (UK) conservatories LTD have been absolutely fantastic and helpful all the way through.The conservatory is fantastic,really good quality and my husband found it quite straight forward to put it up and we have had lovely comments from friends,family and neighbours on how good it looks.Just wanted to say thank you!

Mr & Mrs Penketh in Cheshire:

Bernie & Mary Cripps in Reading:

Dear Karl and Mandy, From visiting your premises prior to ordering the conservatory until completion three weeks after the conservatory was delivered we had no problems at all. We completed the conservatory ourselves,having had no previous experience but decided to use some qualified tradesmen to install the windows & roof which we felt required expertise that we did not have.We feel that the cost of the conservatory was extremely good value having searched the internet for comparisons and it has added at least twice its worth to the value of our property we would be happy to recommend your company and products to anyone who is looking for something similar.

Hi Mandy As you can see the conservatory arrived ok and is nearly finished,I will send you some better pictures ones when finished.Many thanks for all your help.

Steven Corner in France:

Karl and Mandy. We feel we must write to you to \'COMPLAIN\' about the conservatory we purchased from you a couple of months ago.Since erecting this masterpiece of an airfix kit we both have developed \'Ricked Necks\' and according to our doctor, suffering from \'Conservatory Looking-at-itus\'.He informs us that this is a common condition suffered by people who buy conservatories from your company. The main contributory factor of this condition is due to the person being completely overwhelmed at what can only be described as an absolutely fantastic, well made, bargain that completely transforms your house and the additional room you suddenly discover,to such an extent that you cannot keep looking and staring at it!Seriously though!I cannot recommend yourselves and your company highly enough. Like most people we had several quotes to get a rough idea of what it was going to cost.Everest started at Wait for it £44,000 When we stopped laughing the salesman got out his magic discount wand and finally ended up at £21,000 Anglian then had a go and started at £27,000, he then tried his magic wand and got this down to £19,000.At this stage we were getting a bit worried as we thought that this was going to stop us getting a conservatory as this was no where near our budget.A local company then came round and gave us a quote of £14,000 and this was the same figure another local one gave us.This was a bit of a surprise as we were hoping for about 10-12K. One of my friend recommended a self build DIY as he had done this himself and saved about 50% on the quotes he had.So after searching the internet your company popped up and looking at your on line basic prices I became suspicious that you were probably a \'cowboy\' outfit as there is no way you could do it that cheap( how wrong were we??)We looked at the customer testimonies and even popped in to see you whilst in holiday in Lyme Regis just to make sure you existed and had an office.As soon as we met you we were impressed with your easy going relaxed attitude and you soon put our minds and any worries we had at ease.Several months late we ordered our conservatory.I had a builder friend who done the main building work such as the setting out,bricklaying,oversight, base and plastering. For his labour costs and materials with me doing all the labouring the building work cost us £2200. The conservatory kit with the upgraded frames and a glass roof came to an unbelievable £3,300 so we are proud owners of a conservatory that has cost us an amazing £5,500 UNBELIEVABLE when you compare this to the quotes we had at least a 60% + saving. We were still a bit worried about the actual quality of what we would be receiving and the ease at which these conservatories are supposed to go up. The on line construction guides do look a bit complex on first glance as it is hard to picture things and reference certain aspects when you have not seen the \'Airfix Kit\' laying in your garden The conservatory arrived at 08:00 on the morning it was agreed to be delivered, the poor delivery driver had left at 04:30 to get to us.We unloaded what seemed at the time to be about half a dozen conservatories what with all the glass and frames etc Once the driver had gone and I got my head around things I began to relate the parts with the on line instructions and the jigsaw picture started to come together.I must admit, I took my time and put all the framework up myself over a few days. The roof beams and supporting lintel took another afternoon to complete and needed the help of a mate to support the lintel until I could bolt the structure together. Overall I could not believe how strong, rigid and substantial looking the framework was when assembled and took great pride in my achievements.. ( The conservatory Looking at-itus had started to set in).. Another testament to the sheer quality and strength of this conservatory was confirmed by my next door neighbours conservatory fitters who by chance were fitting a local companies conservatory at the same time as mine. Their fitter of 30years could not believe how rigid the roof framework was and how good the whole thing looked. he even asked for your companies details as he was considering buying one for himself as he was that impressed, even more so when I told him how much it cost.The roof glass needed 2 of us due to the weight of the glass but another weekends work saw us finish the job.. From here on in with a sealed roof, a few more weekends and nights work we were able to finish the conservatory, decorate, wood floor, skirt etc We both still cant believe how easy it was to put it up and just how fantastic it is.I got so much satisfaction and pride in doing it myself and it has transformed our house. I have already recommended your company to several others already and would tell anyone to have a go and save themselves a fortune in the making.. Any one who is at least a bit practical and handy around the house would be able to put one of these up, they are that good a kit and very easy to build Once again thank you so so much for a great product and service from your company. PS. If anyone wants further details or piece of mind if you are having in doubts about DIY then I am more than happy to have my email address added to this so I can share my experiences.

Andy & Dee Wilkinson in Bedfordshire:

Hi Mandy, More than happy with my conservatory,can recommends Phil and his mate,who put it up.
