    How can I improve sound insulation on a polycarb conservatory roof ?

    Hi all, Any ideas how I can reasonably easily further soundproof my conservatory polycarb roof ? I enjoy listening to the rain on it but I am concerned about the noise we emit from the conservatory with music. We don't play the music very loud but the neighbours mentioned they can hear it...

    Free to collect - 2 conservatory type chairs (Harveys)

    These chairs cost me £150 each many moons ago (yes I know, I havent shopped at Harvey's since!) They are structurally sound but the colour has faded from black to brown as they have been based in a conservatory (the pictures dont do them any justice as the colour is fairly uniform). Free...

    Conservatory roof ? Glass or poly carbon?

    Having a conservatory built and neighbours

    A couple of years ago the neighbours had a large conservatory built. The conservatory side sits alongside my garden fence to the left. No problems there. However I am into Astronomy and on dark nights like to get the scope out and do a bit of star gazing. Well that's been dashed altogether now...
