Our process

Working hard for you and your home

Conservatory interior

At Smiths At Dedham, it's all about you - the customer. We not only focus on getting you the right price but we also make sure it's the right product and design for your home, all using the highest quality materials and latest technologies. You can also be sure of the finished result, because when it comes to the construction process, all of our trusted fitting and building crews are carefully selected and highly trained.

For a conservatory installation, we start the process with an initial site visit to your home. This will normally take up to one hour and daylight is required. All options and requirements are discussed, photographs taken and dimensions agreed. Particular attention is paid to ventilation and how best to achieve this. Heating would also be calculated and the best method would be advised on. The quotation / specification can normally be with you within 48 hours.

If you have any questions about how we work, please do not hesitate to get in touch. In the meantime, here are the answers to some frequently asked questions.
