Building a conservatory can be a challenging task. But whether you plan to hire a professional to build your aluminium conservatory or are considering DIY, it’s good to start with a rough idea of how the process works.
It’s essential to begin with a strong conservatory base. The area needs to be measured out carefully and then dug out. You then need to level the earth and pour in concrete. Your damp proof course goes on top of this, preventing rising damp from entering your structure and creating the floor level.
Then, you need to build your conservatory walls. Start by building your dwarf wall, positioning the external sills on top. Next, fix in the frames and hang your doors. Sit your roof ridge on top of the frames, and add the roof rafters.
Finally, you need to fit the glazing sheets and guttering. Once this is all done, your new aluminium conservatory is ready to go!
