How to build a conservatory
Your DIY conservatory will be custom-made based on your exact specifications. That’s why every project is unique.
We’ve outlined the typical steps on how to build a conservatory below.
How to install your own conservatory
Every conservatory we manufacture is suitable for both professional and DIY installation.
When installing your conservatory, you can contact our friendly team if you have any questions. They are on hand to offer tips and advice every step of the way.
The video below demonstrates how quick, clean and easy it is to install your conservatory using ConservaBase, an all-in-one modular base, floor and wall system that reduces a three-week project to two days.
Day 1: How to install ConservaBase
Step 1. Foundation construction
Using the pad plan supplied, construct the pads by digging several small holes and then fill with concrete or foundation blocks.
Step 2. Setting up fully-welded sections
Cover the area with the weed-suppressing membrane and place the fully-welded sections on the pads. Each section is labelled and corresponds to the assembly instructions supplied to make things quick and easy.
ConservaBase eliminates the need for builders, skips and multiple deliveries of building materials. There is no building site and no mess. Installation is quick, clean and simple.
The sections are bolted together effortlessly and levelled with the adjustable, self-levelling feet before it is bolted to the house wall.
Step 3. Floor insulation
Insert the floor insulation sheets and fix the moisture-resistant tongue and groove floor to the base.
Step 4. Skirt fixing
Fix the skirt to the edge of the base. We can manufacture and supply extended steelwork and a deeper skirt if needed for sloping ground conditions.
Step 5. Floor protection
Cover the floor with a suitable polythene sheet to protect it from any rain during the installation.
Step 6. Installation of wall sections
The galvanised steel modular walls are delivered with the brick slips already factory fitted and grouted.
Place the wall sections in position according to the instructions. Each section is labelled for ease. The wall sections are then bolted together and fixed to the base securely.
The joints are finished with the spare brick slips, adhesive and grout, all of which are supplied with the kit. Once the grouted joints are dry, they will be indistinguishable from a conventional build.
Day 2: How to assemble your conservatory
Watch the video below to see how quick and easy it is to construct your conservatory frames.
Step 7. Conservatory frame installation
The conservatory cill is laid on top of the walls, or in the case of a full-height frame conservatory, directly to the base floor.
Fix the conservatory frames together and secure to the house wall. All corner posts, connectors and fixings are supplied.
Step 8. Roof installation
The roof ring beam is fixed on top of the conservatory frames, and once everything is square, the final fixings can be made and tightened.
Starting with the wall plate, ridge and rafters, assemble the conservatory roof and bolt to the house wall according to the instructions.
Step 9. Conservatory glazing
The conservatory frames are internally glazed for maximum security by inserting the glass units from inside and tapping in the glazing beads.
We supply roof supporting tie bars if needed.
The roof glazing, which can be either polycarbonate or double glazed glass units, sits on the rafter bars. Next, fit the end closure rafter covers and end caps, all of which we supply in the kit.
Step 10. Final decorations
Once the roof glazing is complete, fit the decorative ridge cap, followed by the gutter, downpipe and internal trims, all of which we include in every kit.
