With an average build time of just two days, the Durabase takes a fraction of the time that traditional build methods take.

Durabase Summary

Durabase is the perfect solution for either a self build conservatory project of for somewhere with restricted access or a tight timescale to complete the project. A build with level walls and perfect brick work can easily be achieved in just a couple of days. A traditional wet build conservatory base requires a lot of manual labour and there is a lot of waste produced that needs to be disposed of. A small 3m x 3m conservatory foundation excavation will produce roughly seven cubic meters of waste compared to just to 2 cubic meters when using the Durabase system, much less waste, less labour, less mess and faster build.

The Durabase system is the only self build conservatory base to have BBA certification, the systems has been rigourosly tested and certified by the British Board of Agreement that the Durabase is fit for purpose. The system has been in production for over 30 years now and is developed by Wye Valley Engineering, in Hertfordshire they are the leading manufacturer of the diy conservatory base in the UK.
