"It is second hand for a reason you will also need a Fensa I'd you decide to sell property on and you won't get one on a second conservatory"

"Hi dean, can be good value depending on the condition,ie glass-blown units,but as long as you match your cill dimensions with your new base then

"You will have to dig footing and fill with concrete, build new wall and concrete for new floor approx 8 days work but it does depend on how big it is"

"This would probably take up to 2 to 3 weeks but this is only if the old parts go together the same as they came apart..putting a second hand conservatory together can be quite difficult and time consuming. Some old products are now obsolete and can be hard to find second hand parts so must take great care putting back together..hope this helps. Thankyou."

"Hi Dean,

Length of time will depend on the availability of your builders.
Once the building work has been completed, fitters should have the conservatory built up in a day or two.
Fensa cert or equivalent will be required if you sell and currently not available on second hand conservatories. Worth thinking about a new one in my opinion. You will get a lot more use out of it and I will be cost effective in the long run.

"You need to check if you need planning permission this will depend on the size also the ground work depends on what the ground conditions are but in normal circumstances the base would probably take 2-4 weeks then the install of the conservatory would take up to a week"
