New here and have a fair few questions for you lovely experts to help me with!
I have been toying with the idea of a conservatory for years, and finally got around to making some real plans at the end of last summer, it will be the whole back of the house, extending as much as it can without requiring planning permission, and I've gone for an edwardian style as that fits with the architecture.
I was thinking of doing it myself (with the help of family and friends as many of them are practical), but then I got a bit stumped as I read somewhere that you have to be a qualified installer to put in double glazed windows? I wonder if this applied to conservatories, and thought it would so have been looking at local suppliers to possibly come and do the job for me.
I have found a company that do conservatories in Cornwall and their quote was reasonable, however if i am allowed legally to do it myself then i would rather. I have heard some nightmare tales about the big named suppliers so thought i would 'go local' as it were if thats the only option available.
Also I have read that people have had issues with heating for their conservatories, with many being told they can't extend central heating etc. I understand that the pipes etc would have to be sorted at the foundation stage, but wondered what my options were for winter heating? I will be having a glass roof.
Thanks for reading!
