If you’re thinking of constructing a conservatory or orangery, make sure you plan ahead of time to prevent problems later. We want
people to enjoy their conservatories, but making the wrong choice may be costly.
If a conservatory isn’t correctly designed, it may lead to issues like:
Insufficient internal space-Conservatories are a great way to add room to your home, but they aren’t always adequate. If you choose a
conservatory that is too tiny, it may become obsolete and unused quickly.
Doesn’t match the rest of the home-If you select your conservatory without considering the rest of the house, it may not blend in with the
rest of the structure.
Roof that is leaking-Roofs that are of poor quality are unlikely to endure. Roof leaks are often caused by defective roof vents or
deteriorated seals. Another cause is box guttering that has been improperly placed, broken, or neglected. It’s an issue you don’t want to
have, regardless of the reason.
Doors that aren’t working ” Sliding doors are a convenient method to connect your conservatory to your house, but they are more prone
to jamming than bi-fold doors.
Cheaper doors may need more regular maintenance. You must ensure that whatever door you pick is correctly fitted.
It’s tough to get the temperature just right, whether it’s too chilly or too hot. Your conservatory may quickly get excessively chilly if it is
poorly insulated. In addition, if you don’t have any ventilation, your conservatory will likely be excessively hot in the summer. When
purchasing a conservatory in the summer, it’s tempting to overlook how it will operate in the winter (and vice versa).
Because most conservatories do not need planning approval, many people believe that all constructions are free from this requirement.
This, however, is wrong. There are a few reasons why a conservatory needs planning approval that you should be aware of. You must
also follow construction codes to ensure that your conservatory is legal and safe.
We’ve put up some pointers to help you avoid these typical conservatory blunders…
Make a conservatory size plan.
Going larger later in your conservatory career is more difficult, frustrating, costly, and often impossible.
It’s crucial to choose the appropriate conservatory size. Consider what you want to do with the space, who will use it, and how that will
evolve over time. When you invest in a high-quality conservatory, you want it to fit your lifestyle for the rest of your time in your house,
Therefore you may want to allow space for your family to expand.
Carefully consider the design and form of your conservatory.
It’s critical that conservatories and orangeries blend in with the rest of the house. You should choose a conservatory that blends in with its
surroundings. It’s all too simple to choose a lovely conservatory that clashes with the neighbouring structure.
You may wind up with an eyesore if you don’t select wisely. Or even a form that has nothing to do with your home. But don’t worry; we can
assist you in locating, purchasing, and constructing the conservatory style that is most suited to your house.
With expert installation, you can avoid leaks and doors that aren’t properly installed.
The first step in reducing the danger of leaks is to purchase a high-quality conservatory. However, no matter how good your conservatory
materials are, if they are put improperly, they may fail.
Purchase the conservatory roof of your dreams.
Your choice of roofing system, like the size of your conservatory, is something that is tough to change later in the day. Although roof
replacements are a possibility, you should make sure your initial roof is in good shape to prevent this.
It’s worthwhile to spend a little more money on the conservatory roof of your dreams. Your conservatory roof requirements, including the
materials you choose, should be carefully considered. Polycarbonate is the most popular kind of roof (plastic). Many conservatory
owners, however, regret not opting for a glass roof after construction. When it rains, glass is the best choice since it offers a greater
perspective and is quieter. A solid roof is another alternative if you don’t want any glass.
Choosing the appropriate conservatory glass
Conservatory glass isn’t all created equal. For your roof and/or windows and doors, you may choose from a variety of conservatory
We provide Self-Cleaning or Solar Control Double Glazing for conservatory glass roof glazing.
This kind of glazing has a number of advantages:
Self-cleaning ” The self-cleaning coating on this double-glazed glass reduces maintenance expenses. There will be no more cleaning of
Anti-glare ” The light-tinted glass has a slight blue tint that allows for excellent light transmission while reducing glare, allowing you to
enjoy the sun without discomfort.
Glass roofs are considerably clearer than polycarbonate roofs, which may get very filthy very fast.
Improved temperature-Compared to polycarbonate, all glass roofs provide better thermal insulation. They may, however, get too heated
too fast. Heat is deflected by Solar Control, resulting in a more pleasant atmosphere.
You must first examine the kind of roof you have before deciding on this glass type. Self-cleaning glass is only recommended if your roof
is steep enough to allow rainfall to transport dirt away.
Other alternatives are available if Blue Self-Cleaning, Solar Control Double Glazing does not meet your requirements.

Choose the right conservatory flooring.
The flooring you choose for your conservatory should be practical as well as attractive. Before you lay down your flooring, think about
what you want to accomplish with your new living area.
If you have dogs, children, or want to use your conservatory as a link between your home and your garden, you’ll want to select a flooring
option that’s both simple to clean and durable.
Because of its attractive appearance, wood flooring is a popular option, but it requires much more care than other materials (such as
vinyl). In south-facing conservatories, woods that are especially prone to warping, such as lumber, should be avoided since the light and
heat may cause damage.
