A conservatory is one of the most sought after home improvements available. With the advances in energy efficient materials, a conservatory is a relaxing room the whole family can enjoy 365 days of the year. When it comes to styles and designs, the possibilities are endless so each conservatory is customized to compliment your property. Inspiration often comes from something you have seen. It can then be adapted slightly to suit your individual style. A helpful starting point is to decide which shape or model will suit your property best and work from there.

Some people may be misled into thinking that a conservatory can only be used in the warmer months, this may have been the case some years ago, but with well insulated cavity walls and floors aswell as Low E glass to radiate the heat back into the room, heat loss is dramatically reduced. There is also the option to install underfloor heating as well as plumbed or electric radiators. Alternatively, conservatories of old used to become too hot in summer and uncomfortable to sit in. This problem can be controlled significantly by adequate ventilation and installing optional extras such as, controllable roof vents. On all of our glass roofs we install Conservaglass glass as standard. Conservaglass, launched by market leading conservatory roofing company Ultraframe, was the first high performance glazing product designed specifically for the requirements of conservatories in the UK climate. In addition to keeping the sun's energy out in Summer and keeping the interior warm in Winter, it stays cleaner for longer than conventional glass. Not only does it stay cleaner for longer but a transparent coating bonded into the external surface of the glass (not sprayed onto the sealed unit after production like some competitor products) uses the power of ultra-violet rays and the rain to break down dirt and grime and wash it clean away. Of course this does not mean your glass will never require cleaning but it does reduce the amount of maintenance required and is much easier to clean than conventional glass.
