Oakland Windows and Conservatories
Member Name: Wombles1
Advantages: All work done by the same company, Fast and Efficient
Disadvantages: Not the cheapest quote
My lovely conservatory has just been finished by Oakland. We had three quotes from local companies but choose Oakland because we wanted one company to do all the work we didn't like the idea of paying the builder, fitter, electrician and plasterer seperately. From start to finish it took 3 weeks, in the early stages while the concrete and brickwork was setting they weren't there everyday.
We have a Georgian style 4 metres x 4 metres, a gulley moved, a tap moved, plastered walls inside, 4 double sockets and 4 eyeball downlighters. We're facing North out the back so we also went for insulated walls and floor and a low 'e' coating on the glass. The total cost was £8960. My son is doing our own floor because he's fits laminate all day at work and we're trying to keep the cost down.
We had one small problem in that a key broke in one of the window handles but they replaced it very quickly. A friend at work had Oakland build their conservatory 2 years ago and are very happy with it too.
Summary: I am highly satisfied and would definitely recommend them.
