Replacement panel for lean to conservatory

by Scobecu » Mon Jun 13, 2022 8:19 pm

Hi. We need a upvc end panel replaced on a lean to conservatory. The panel is triangular, sitting between the windows below it and the glass roof above it.
It is 2.5m along the bottom and 60cm high at the long side. It appears to have some sort of foam inside it. Water has got in causing it to bulge and pushing off the cover strip.
We've had a quote to replace this panel of £350.
We'd just like an idea of whether this quote seems reasonable, it seems quite high to me. The reason we ask is because it is a small job and only one of 3 glaziers has bothered getting back to us. Also we are new to the area so I haven't yet been able to build up my trusted list of trades.
Already we've had builders and plumbers trying to rip us off with rediculous quotes. Luckily I'm relatively handy so I usually have a fair idea of costs, but I'm running a bit blind on this one.
I'd have guessed about £100 for the panel and £100 for what will be no more than a couple of hours work.
Bit of an open ended question, I know but I'm only looking for ballpark...

TIA

Hi scobecu,
Who ever you contract to do this repair they will have to find a source for the laminated board. They probably will have to purchase a rectangular blank and with delivery I suspect the sheet cost alone will be above £150. The quote you have is reasonable but try to find a company specialising in conservatories and see if they can help.
