Conservatories have gained immense popularity in recent years as they offer a unique way to extend living space while bringing the beauty of the outdoors inside. These glass-enclosed structures provide homeowners with a versatile and multi-functional area that can be used as a living room, dining area, study, or even a mini greenhouse.
If you have an existing conservatory, our installation service can make your conservatory up to 67% more energy efficient whilst still retaining the original frames.
There are various types of conservatories available today, each with its own unique features and design characteristics.
Some popular types include Victorian conservatories, Edwardian conservatories, lean-to conservatories, gable-fronted conservatories, and bespoke conservatories. Victorian conservatories are known for their elegant and intricate design, while Edwardian conservatories offer a more spacious and contemporary look.
Lean-to conservatories are a popular choice for those with limited space, while gable-fronted conservatories add a touch of grandeur to any home.
Regardless of your preferred style of conservatory, it is important to take the materials into account as a poorly insulated and installed conservatory could mean a mass escape of heat and an even bigger invasion of cold.
Choosing to go with one of the more traditional styles of conservatory such as Edwardian or Victorian doesn’t mean that the insulative qualities have to be from that era! uPVC is a fantastic choice for conservatories due to its diversity, longevity and insulative qualities, making it possible for us here at ABC Glazing to integrate modern and traditional, providing you with a space to brighten up your home.
Do I need planning permission for a conservatory?
In many cases, conservatories can be built under permitted development rights, which means planning permission may not be required. However, there are certain restrictions and guidelines to consider, such as the size and position of the conservatory. We will advise you further on conservatory planning permission when you get in touch.
What maintenance does a conservatory require?
Regular maintenance is essential to keep your conservatory in top condition. Cleaning the glass panels, frames, and guttering periodically is important to remove dirt and debris. Checking for leaks, ensuring proper ventilation, and inspecting the seals are also part of routine maintenance. Avoid using abrasive cleaners that may damage the surfaces.
