Your chosen Conservatory bespoke to your specification - personalise it with the help of our Technical Team! Unlike Conservatories made in two halves, where the roof comes from a different source to the windows, every part of our Conservatory system has been designed as a complete room.
Our complete Conservatories are now available in a variety of colours as well as white and the usual woodgrain finishes. If you choose one of the woodgrain finishes your Conservatory roof will have aluminium Hip top caps not PVC-U. Because darker colours absorb more heat, the woodgrain effect finishes are applied to aluminium rather than PVC-U so they can withstand higher temperatures and remain perfect for years to come.
Aluminium comes as standard for woodgrain effect Hip top caps, but we also offer high gloss powder coated aluminium top cap in white as an optional upgrade.
Our Conservatories guarantee high quality and performance of the highest standards. The classic sculpture of the frames follows through onto the eaves beam cladding, ridge bottom cladding and rafter bottom caps - a true conservatory solution!
No doubt you will have many more questions! Let our dedicated and experienced technical advisors help to guide you through the planning and design process and take the headache out of the situation!
As any Architect or Builder will tell you - nothing can be built without a design or plan; so at the very beginning of the project you will undoubtedly have given consideration to the following:-
Are you working to a budget and what can you afford without compromising on quality?
Size and design of Conservatory
Will Planning Permission be required?
Will the Conservatory be located on a south or north facing elevation?
What material should you choose for the roof and will it give adequate UV protection in the summer months?
What sort of heating should you use?
How much ventilation will the Conservatory require and will it need Air-Conditioning?
What will the room be used for?
Having the option to choose your preferred PVCu finish both externally and internally means that you can personalise your Conservatory. You can choose any of the beautiful new contemporary colours to match your property on the outside and choose White on the inside to suit your decor!

Also known as light oak or caramel

POLYCARBONATE OR GLASS ROOF
With so much attention given to choosing size, colour and style of conservatory, roof glazing options can be overlooked. This can be made complicated because of all the options available but also because of conflicting advice you may have heard. It doesn’t have to be complicated though! The main factors to remember when you are considering the options are:
Where will your conservatory be facing (North or South)?
What will your conservatory be used for?
Are you working to a budget?
Recommended for North facing elevations. Lets plenty of light in!
Recommended for South and West facing elevations. A popular choice for Woodgrain finish Conservatories.
Recommended for South facing elevations. Helps diffuse ultraviolet rays.
Recommended for South facing elevations. Provides a bright appearance internally, reducing Solar Heat Gain.
Highly recommended for south elevations. The reflective external coating allows the light in but deflects solar radiation reducing solar heat gain. Has Opal finish internally.
Why not increase the polycarbonate performance by upgrading from the standard 25mm thickness to 35mm polycarbonate. Speak to a member of our technical team today for more information.
WHAT IS PERFORMANCE GLASS?
Performance Glass takes double glazed units and uses technology that increases insulation properties and solar protection.
Celsius Glass (or a near equivalent such as EcoClean Sunshield) utilises a Low E and Solar Control combination coating, with an Argon filled cavity to control the amount of visible light, UV rays and heat that passes through the glazed unit. Easy Clean & low maintenance technologies work by combining the power of sunlight (particularly UV light) to break down organic matter and natural rainfall to wash this away. These technologies work best at a 7.5 degree pitch or greater. We offer a wide range of double glazed unit options to suit different applications and budgets. Please speak to a member of our team for more information.
DECORATIVE GLASS – ADD A PERSONAL TOUCH!
Why not add a personal touch to your conservatory by adding decorative glass to the top section of your frames. All the designs illustrated below are available leaded/etched into the glass as shown here:
French doors come as standard on our conservatories but you can choose to upgrade to Patio doors or maybe even a set of *Bi-fold doors. However if site conditions dictate or you are working to a budget we can change the standard french door configuration to a single opening door.
A simple but elegant solution. Patio Doors take up minimal space and grant easy access to the outside. They are available with sliding and fixed leaf configurations.
Perhaps the ultimate conservatory upgrade is the addition of Bi-Folding Doors. You could choose to open up the entire side of your conservatory, bringing the outside in more than ever before. *Additional eaves beam support may be required depending on bi-fold opening span.
OPENING WINDOWS & ROOF VENTS
Air ventilation can be easily overlooked, but in the summer months ensuring you have considered air flow will make for a much more comfortable/enjoyable environment. The number of opening vents and windows in your conservatory is very much a personal choice, some people prefer to keep costs down by having a minimal amount of opening windows, where others prefer the flexibility of a window in every panel. Ask us about the recommended number/position(s) of opening windows in your chosen conservatory (considering both size and style) and we will be pleased to advise you.
Top Openers & Tilt and Turn Windows
For maximum control over the air flow in your conservatory, add opening windows.
You could choose to have small opening windows in the top of some (or all) of your panels, or have deep opening windows in the main area as shown here.
Standard Top Opener Large Mid Opener Tilt & Turn Style
For increased flexibility over the air flow in your conservatory consider adding one or more roof vents.
Our standard roof vent offering is a manual style operated via a spindle/pole. You do have the option to upgrade to an electric wall mounted switch style.
