As one of the most popular ways to add space, as well as value, to your home, it’s not surprising that there is going to be a lot of competition in the conservatory price market.
Buying a new conservatory is going to require an investment of anything from £5,000 upwards – with some of the top end designs having a conservatory price of over £30,000. So getting the best protection for your money will certainly be the most prudent thing to do.
If we look at this from 2 aspects, it’s simple:
What we are looking at here, are warranties that cover the conservatory after it is installed.
Such as an overall 10-year guarantee on “parts & Labour” – typically related to the component parts. Separate warranty of up to 15-years for the sealed double glazed units (especially gas filled units). Another warranty on the locks – for example Yale locks themselves can come with a 10-year guarantee (https://www.yale.co.uk/en/yale/couk/support/10-year-security-guarantee/)
No matter how good the products are, if they are fitted badly, or the installer goes out of business, then you could stand to lose out – a lot.
The main protection afforded to buyers of conservatories is by working with an installer accredited by FENSA / CERTASS or DGCOS.
Let’s just look at DGCOS as a great example of how to protect yourself. The Double Glazing & Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme provide a list of benefits for conservatory buyers:
FENSA & CERTASS both provide similar deposit protection and warranties covering the complete construction via accredited members.
