Designed By You
Our conservatories are individually inspired by you and brought to life with the support of our design consultants. Using computer aided drawings you’ll see your vision take shape in the space throughout the design consultation.
Conservatories are a timeless way to add space where you need it in a configuration that enhances your home and garden. These are one off bespoke designs inspired by how you want to use the space. Imagine what that extra room will be, who will use it and what for? Asking yourself those questions in advance of a design consultation means you can craft the perfect living space.
It’s this versatility that set’s apart conservatories from other ways of extending your home. The space can reflect even the most ambitious plans for redefining the way you live in your home.
Custom designs and shapes can be sculpted to your existing home, you might add a simple lean to style, or look to expand with a wrap around, increasing dimension across both aspects of your home.
How you want to use the space will all be thought through in detail so you can choose roofing, footings, brickwork, electrics, heating, plastering, and floor tiling to compliment the living space.
Bespoke Living Spaces
Choosing Between Glass or Tiled Roof Conservatories
You can choose from a selection of roof finishes including various polycarbonate options or toughened glass including “Pilkington Activ” self-cleaning & solar control glass in clear or blue tint. All our glazed roof options come pre-prepared with solar gain reduction and low U-Values to make the space a year round addition to the home.
All our tiled roofs are constructed using market leading roofing systems which are designed to the highest standards. They are robust and can cope with even the harshest of British weathering.
With no difference in quality between glass and tiled roof options it really does come down to your personal preference and style when choosing the right conservatory roof.
Sun Soaked Without Becoming A Sauna
Those of us old enough to remember the conservatory revolution of the 70’s and 80’s wince at the expense of a room that could only be comfortably used a few weeks of the year. In summer the old conservatories were swelteringly hot, and by winter you needed a good pair of long johns.
Solar technology has advanced so much in the last 40 years that a conservatory built to today’s standards is a space you can use whatever the temperature is outside. Here’s a quick guide to the solar technology installed as standard in all our glazing.
We were the first company in Essex who installed ‘A’ rated double glazed windows as standard. Just a small signal of our commitment to quality products. This means our windows carefully balance the weather outside with the optimal living conditions inside your home.
The sun will move light around your home, make certain areas warm up quickly and large areas of glazing used to be a cause for heat loss too. Now with all this in mind our solar sensible options mean you don’t have to let the sun’s movements determine how your conservatory looks or when you can spend time in it.
Christmas Dinner In The Conservatory
Better insulated windows have a lower U-Value.This is important to consider, especially in larger glazing projects, because it helps you keep heat in your conservatory. Big windows with a higher u-value will allow vast amounts of heat to escape through the window and make sitting in the room impossible in the winter months. With the smart technology in our glazed units we can minimise heat loss to such an extent you can eat Christmas Dinner in the conservatory should you wish.
Solar Controlled Glass
Solar control glass such as from the Pilkington range will also help to protect your space from solar gain, where the glass acts to magnify the heat coming in. This is especially important to consider in conservatories with a glazed roof so you can comfortably control the temperature of the room even on the hottest days of the year. A combined approach to U-value and reducing solar gain means you get the perfect balance of insulation for your space.
Internal Blinds For Zero Dusting
Aside from the obvious benefits that come from never needing to be cleaned or dusted, internal blinds are a smart feature in glazed conservatory roofs. On very bright days you can simply cover the roof using the internal blinds and control not only the heat and solar gain but amount of light in the space too. A very flexible approach that gives you precise control.
The windows and doors are always our high security and energy efficient PVC-u system with energy saving glass, internal glazing and include the latest multi-point locking systems.
We can even revitalise your existing conservatory by just replacing the roof, renewing the windows and doors or even both.
By leaving the existing brickwork and footings in place (subject to survey) we are able to modernise and refurbish your old conservatory at a fraction of the cost of replacing the entire structure.
A new roof and frames manufactured to modern standards and regulations will certainly brighten the place up and eradicate any leaks or draughts, making it more usable all year round.
