There is no doubt that conservatories are a popular and useful addition to any property, as testified by the fact that over 3 million have been installed in the UK alone.
However one of the inherent problems is that over time, they require maintenance, repair or even complete replacement to ensure trouble free enjoyment of the extra space afforded by this ingenious extension.
It is estimated that there are currently as many as 500,000 conservatories in need of refurbishment or repair, with this aspirational link between home and garden often becoming a bit of an eye sore, or in some instances a leaking room attached to a house.
In terms of affordability, the most cost effective refurb conservatory option is to simply replace the conservatory roof. The reason for this is that most of the older conservatory roofs in the UK are glazed in polycarbonate which has a tendency to discolour, whilst also being generally noisy and not able to retain the heat.
A new conservatory roof glazed in Ambience Glass is highly energy efficient, aesthetically appealing to look at and the company are able to use their own exclusive structural products to ensure the added weight is supported correctly.
Alternatively, another refurbish conservatory option exists which includes replacing the roof, windows and doors. This will provide the added benefit of a highly energy efficient new roof along with highly energy efficient windows and doors.
It is also possible to change some of the design elements to give the conservatory a new look which can include a wide range of colours from luxurious woodgrains to more contemporary colours.
Finally, one option is to replace the entire conservatory, which would provide the opportunity to change the conservatory design, colour or provide the option of an Orangery, or glazed extension.
There are many options availvable in refurbishing your conservatory.
