Conservatories, Orangeries and Glazed Structures

A conservatory or orangery is the ultimate addition to a home and a substantial investment.  Guaranteed to add value to any property, this is an extension in traditional bricks and mortar combined with the light and airy style of an orangery or conservaroty. Both create additional living space in the home.

However you choose to use it, a conservatory will transform the way you live, in and around your home. It will quickly become your favourite room with a view and one which can be comfortably used all year round.

For many years aluminium has been the architect’s choice and for good reason. From elegant homes to high rise buildings, it is the strength, lifetime performance and appearance of aluminium that building professionals rely upon.

In many conservation areas authorities now accept the fully recyclable alumium framing as a real alternative to the traditional hardwood they have traditionally specified.

Not all conservatories will require planning. It is however smart to check that your property allows you to build one.  Your window company should advise you on this.

When it comes to buying a conservatory with doors, windows and roof from a trade manufacturer choose wisely.  There is so much detail in conservatory manufacture, your supplier must have a clear understanding of your needs from your initial survey to be able to supply it correctly.  Ensure everything is checked thoroughly.
