Top Tips

For your conservatory choices try our top tips

 

1.Use:

What do you hope to get out of your new room? Will it be a study perhaps or a playroom? An office or maybe just an extra space to relax in and enjoy the garden? Whatever you are using it for will determine the size and layout which best accommodates your needs.

 

 

2.Materials:

Your new space should fit in seamlessly with your lifestyle. Materials such as PVC-u are incredibly low maintenance and hard-wearing. No need for step ladders and re-painting. Simply oil the hinges and wipe down the frames every now and again to keep your conservatory looking like new.

 

3.Positioning:

Think about the position of your conservatory. For South facing where you will receive the sun for most of the day, consider extra ventilation or blinds. North facing examples where the heat from the sun is limited should consider heating devices such as under-floor heating or slim-line panel heaters.

 

4.Size:

Once you have made your decision on design, it would be best to check the dimensions of both your house and garden. A conservatory should be an extension to your living space, not over take it!

 

5.Glazing:

New advancements have been made to ensure that the glass used in conservatories can work its hardest for the home owner. As are the new products in the eco-roof range of polycarbonates. Ensuring that you are cooler in Summer and warmer in Winter – meaning a conservatory can now be used all year round.

 

6.Planning Permission:

A conservatory in England or Wales would not normally require Planning Permission. However, there are some exceptions to this statement which should be considered before starting to build.
