How long does it take to manufacture?
After your approval of the shop drawings, each conservatory is individually built. The roof is pre-assembled for accuracy, numbered, then disassembled for shipment. This ensures accuracy of the overall footprint and attachment to existing structures. Manufacturing time ranges between 6 and 10 weeks, depending on the order book in the workshops or the complexity of your project. Shipping time ranges from 2-weeks to the East Coast and Midwest and 3-4 weeks for the South and West Coasts.
Who erects the conservatory? And how long does it take?
Our Construction Managers are master carpenters. They usually work with a crew of 2-3 Town & Country employees, depending on the size of the project. We do not use subcontractors or send crews from the United Kingdom who are less experienced with North American construction details, sealants and tools. We provide the assembly from the base or kneewall wall up.
We time the delivery of the conservatory to suit your or your contractors schedule. We start the erection immediately upon arrival. Because of the pre-assembly, most conservatories take only one to two weeks, three or more for larger projects.
What are the warranties and what if I have a problem?
Our conservatories carry a 10 year structural warranty and typically a 10 year insulated glass warranty. We also guarantee the workmanship of our installation for a full year after the installation. As part of the installation process we provide you with a maintenance memo outlining steps to preserve the beauty of the building. We maintain back-up glass records in the event of breakage (rare because most glass is tempered/tempered as a standard). We also offer annual maintenance inspections and service in most parts of the country and can provide references attesting to our commitment to our product.
