You have just moved into a new home in Gloucester, and you want to build a new conservatory.
You and your family have just moved into the City of Gloucester from another county and purchased a new home. The house has everything you want, apart from a conservatory on the back to allow more space for eating together as a family. There is a dilapidated old shed in the garden that will have to be demolished before any building work can begin. The first thing you will need to do is look for a good, fully qualified local building company who have great reviews on their website. Don’t just speak to one company though, ask around and get quotes from at least two different companies. Ask questions and make sure the builders you choose understand exactly what size and style of conservatory you want.
The builders will make sure any planning permission is granted, if it’s needed, before they start any work and they will check the ground to make sure they don’t dig into any electrical cables, gas pipes or sewers. They might also inspect the sewers to see if any are damaged and possibly need a new Drain Lining Gloucester from a company such as wilkinson-env.co.uk/sewer-repairs-drain-lining-concrete-cutting/drain-repairs/drain-repairs-gloucester. Once all the thorough checks have been completed the building work can begin. You can leave the workmen to complete all the groundwork and clear any debris. They will probably have asked for a 5% deposit before they began and the balance in instalments as the work progresses and you are happy with the results. This is standard practice for most companies and is a fair procedure for both you and the builders. Depending on the size of your new conservatory and the amount of groundwork involved will reflect on the time needed to complete the build.
Taking photographs as the conservatory takes shape is a great idea as you will then have a permanent record of how the builders completed each stage of the construction. If there is anything you are worried about or if you are not sure why the build is taking longer than expected, then ask! Don’t be afraid to communicate your wishes or worries to the builders, after all you are the customer and it’s your money that’s paying for the finished project. When the conservatory is completed and the builders have finally left your garden, you can enjoy the wonderful new and bespoke space you have created.
