Self-assembly conservatory over pipes, drains and a manhole

June 2018 Customer of the Month Case Study – Hipped-Back Edwardian Conservatory, Surrey

Our June Customer of the Month is the proud new owner of a hipped-back Edwardian conservatory.

Here at Conservatory Land, we’re delighted to be able to off a variety of different styles and types of extension – and the hipped-back option is an excellent choice.

With summer having arrived – now is the perfect time to buy a conservatory. So you can enjoy making the most of it through the warmer months.

That’s certainly what Miss Kafeero from Surrey will be doing.

Miss Kafeero decided to purchase a self-assembly conservatory from Conservatory Land, and have it built by one of our approved installers.

The manufacturing of the parts, and the construction of the extension was not an easy task. We needed to take into consideration the customer’s property.

There are pipes, drains and a manhole that we needed to work around. But our experience of doing this meant it wasn’t a problem.

Sometimes these obstacles can put people off buying a conservatory, but they shouldn’t. If you talk to our team, they can help you figure out a plan of action.

As mentioned, the customer had a manhole to work around, as well as some standard pipes and drains. So the measurements needed to be spot on.

We worked with the customer to ensure everything was perfect before we began the manufacturing process.

They requested a hipped-back conservatory, in an Edwardian style.

We provided a DIY conservatory base kit – our ConservaBase model.

Customer Testimonial

Miss Kafeero said: “I saw Conservatory Land in the Daily Mail and was thoroughly impressed with their service when speaking to them.

“I decided that I wanted to use Conservatory Land to supply my conservatory, however I couldn’t find an installer so we approached Conservatory Land to help.

“They had an approved installer in my area who gave me a rough price subject to survey which I was happy with.

“There were drains and manhole covers which needed to be looked at. He came over and gave all the measurement to Conservatory Land and I just had to choose the handle colours and the other cosmetic items.

“The items arrived on time as promised and more importantly all correct. Sean Hunt had fitted over 30 of their conservatories and ConservaBases before and he quickly installed mine to a very high standard.

“I saved nearly £8,000 by doing it the Conservatory Land way rather than going through one of the well-known brands. My friends and family have all commented on the quality of the product and the install.”
