Conservatories have become an increasingly popular solution to extend the living area of your home and the benefits are obvious. You don’t need planning permission for a lot of conservatories.
A conservatory will add considerable value to your home and can be used as a breakfast area or as an area to entertain in.
If you want a conservatory that will not fade in the sun but will help keep the cold out during the winter months then look no further than one with a uPVC frame.
Window Tech Home Improvements organise every stage of the planning and build process, including groundwork, brickwork and if required, electrical and plastering.
All conservatories are tailor made, designs offered are Edwardian, Victorian, P-shaped, Lean-to and Gable fronted.
Every roof is constructed using the “Ultra Frame Roof System” and can offer different polycarbonate inserts, and we also highly recommend the “Pilkington Active Blue glass”, some of the benefits include; self cleaning, increased energy efficiency to save on heating bills, reduction in sun glare, retention of heat in the winter months and will help to keep your conservatory cool in the summer months.
A conservatory isn’t a cheap toy. If you get it right it has the capacity to add real value to your home in addition to creating invaluable additional living space.
WHAT STYLE IS WHAT?
A Victorian conservatory gives an echo of a bygone era which has been adapted to suit many modern homes with modern design. It is the style likely to have a bow-front. It is elegant and has many subtle designs such as a three-section bay, forming a rounded end, but this can be extended by up to five bays.
An Edwardian conservatory, like the Victorian, has classical good looks which complement the look of a modern home. Many people believe the Edwardian style is different from a Victorian by having a squarer or more rectangular base, rather than a bowed end.
The traditional conservatory is a more modern style than the Victorian or Edwardian. It has the name of lean-to because the ridge – rather than extending from the property as the two styles described above do – hugs to the wall. It is an excellent way to use limited space, or as an infill between two projecting ends of a building.
A Gable Fronted conservatory provides maximum living space and is completely adaptable suiting most house styles and bungalows. It can be recognised by its rectangular floor plan and triangular frontage. One prominent feature of this style is that the front elevation windows extend to meet the apex of the roof, helping to maximise the feeling of light and space within the conservatory.
