What can be done about dodgy conservatory installers?
1. I have had a conservatory installed, and had to get the installer back to put dpc between the conservatory and the wall. I have an overhang at roof height, so the inastaller packed out the gap with several pieces of wood. He fixed the wood pieces to the wall, each other and the frame with screws. When he retro-fitted the dpc, his men used a crow bar to pinch the wood from the wall so that they could slip the dpc in. This was on the side which had a door hanging from the frame, so the joiner had to reset the hinges so the door did not sag.
On the other side of the conservatory, where the frame was also fixed to pieces of wood and then the wall, another employee used a wood saw to cut down between the wall and woodl (effectively removing harling), so that he could also insert dpc. I am not impressed one little bit! Incidentally, this is just one of many problems I am having with this particular installer – the build is still on-going after 3 years!!!
What do you think of that then – should I get Dom on the case?
no all this sounds normal for CONSERVATORY INSTALLERS LOL should have got a building contractor to do it ,conservatory installers pay peanuts thus only monkeys work for them
