There are numerous reasons for conservatory extension. Living, dining, playing,kitchen, office or any combination of your reasons will determine the minimum internal space and amount of glass as opposed to brick work you require for your DIY Conservatory Project. With our wealth of experience we hope to be able to give you sound advice when designing your conservatory.

uPVC products come as standard in white, but you may choose from rosewood on white, Rosewood, light oak on white or light Oak. Choose the finish that will best  compliment your property. There are a range of glass treatments that are available to cool or heat, reduce solar heat gain or improve the view out. Roof glazing material from polycarbonate to self cleaning, anti-sun anti-glare, low emission, argon filled, trough, double glazed sealed units are available. Please contact us for impartial advice on what would benefit you the most.

Temperature Control

If you wish to use your conservatory all year round this is a very important design issue. We have heard so many tales of conservatories that are ‘boiling’ in summer and ‘freezing’ in winter. This does not have to be the case if you plan carefully. If your self build conservatory is South facing, then ventilation and solar heat gain are issues that should be carefully considered. Roof vents and large windows would be part of the solution. Solar heat gain can be controlled by a number treatments as is heat retention. This is a technical area we would be pleased to advise you on. So don’t hesitate to contact us for advise.
