Replace existing lean-to conservatory - Conservatories job in Grays, Essex

Job description

The existing conservatory is a lean-to extension to the rear of the property, made up of timber frame and timber cladding. The roof is lean-to onto a pebble-dash finished external wall, felt covering. There is a sliding double door from the dining area out to the conservatory. The existing conservatory has 2no double doors. This is to be replaced like for like (ish) with more robust materials, i.e. brick & tile or full PVC, new footings may be required. The footprint of the extension is to remain the same or within a few inches. It is currently being used for washing machine, kids toy storage, extra fridge, etc... (Tenanted). There is vehicle access to the rear of the property, however, this should be checked.

There is 'external' drainage within the conservatory that will need attention, that is to say, it will need to be covered/sealed but accessible. The electrics are to remain and made safe upon completion. Approximate size of the conservatory is 2.5m x 4m. There is an 'outside' toilet also housed/accessed via the conservatory which needs to be maintained.

The property is currently tenanted, the managing agent will be advised once serious interest is shown. I am living in Australia so the 1st point of contact for access, etc... will be the Agent, however, I will take over from them to discuss finer details.

I am eager to complete these works as soon as possible and need a reliable and trustworthy builder who can carry out these works on a supply and build basis. The existing building is to be removed and disposed of also. The tenant will be given 1st refusal on the decision of the colour scheme, however, I will expect the successful builder to provide options with regards to the structure itself. For financial reasons, I do not want an all singing, all dancing extension. I just want a soundly built room to facilitate its current use and that will last 15-20years minimum but that does not cost me the earth. A guarantee is a must.

No time wasters PLEASE.


Feedback for UPVC Double Glazing

Simon replaced a conservatory at my house in Essex. Working in construction, I tend to be very tentative about builders and their trustworthiness, which is heightened by the fact that I am currently living in Australia. I did my homework, Simon was honest from the outset and didn't sugar coat anything. I questioned the travelling distance (Watford to Essex) he assured me that this would not be an issue and this was the case. To add to the confusion, my house is rented and managed by an agent. Simon contacted and dealt with the agent and my tenant on my behalf, with whom he was professional and sensitive. Following a routine inspection by the agent, the reports on the quality of the build are positive. The experience was stress free and I would definitely use and recommend Simon for future works.
