Conservatories, Sunrooms, Design Information on Conservatories, Conservatory Suppliers and more from the Conservatory Buyers Guide

Dear Conservatory Buyer

Welcome to the new improved and updated version of the Conservatory and Sunroom Buyer's Guide.

Buying a new conservatory, sunroom or garden room ranks up there with buying a new house, buying a car or completing an examination, in terms of complexity and general angst for most people. Certainly not a project to be entered into lightly. There is so much choice - Do you want a summer room or a four seasons room? - Do you want double-glazing or single glazing? - What material? - PVC-U, Hardwood, Softwood or Aluminium? 

The Almost Impartial Guide to buying a Conservatory was the first "web based" - almost "underground" guide to the do's and don'ts of buying a conservatory - a sort of "insiders" guide to conservatories and sunrooms.

In this new updated version of the guide we have added lots of new content including information on Planning Permission, a Price Guide and an updated Suppliers Directory

Additionally we address the issues that really matter - Where shall I locate my conservatory? What is the best size? What material shall I use? Do I use a local company or a national company? How will I heat it? Can I use it all year round? Can I do it myself, or should I get in a company? HOW MUCH WILL IT COST, AND HOW CAN I BE SURE I'M NOT BEING RIPPED OFF?

To get started we suggest you start with Conservatories Today - or maybe view the Gallery for inspiration. Then, when you have researched a little further, you may like to use our Quotation Request Service (in conjunction with our "Partner" site Submit your details and receive up to three competitive quotations from reputable conservatory and sunroom companies. 

We hope you enjoy your search and find the out-door living room you have always wanted. Please feel free to let us know how you get on.

Finally - If you would like to receive a "hard copy" of the "Your guide to buying a conservatory" - a printed version of many of the main issues covered on this web site then please complete the short form below.

Thank you for visiting.
