1. What do I need a conservatory for?

The first thing you need to ask yourself is; what needs does building a conservatory fulfil for me? Is it going to be used as an evening room, a reading room, a room for entertaining guests, a room that gives more space to your existing kitchen/dining room or as a room that lets you admire nature at its best.

2. What type of conservatory will meet my needs?

There are various types, styles, and sizes of conservatories; they can be classified into three main groups, glass or solid roof conservatories, sunrooms and orangeries.
Glass conservatories are a great way to extend a room and maintain maximum light penetration to the extended room.
Solid roof conservatories are a great way to maximise the use the conservatory throughout the year as they retain more heat in winter time and protect against overheating during the summer months, making them the most popular type.
Sunrooms are a great way to extend your home and keep the original character of the house throughout the extension, this type is of a solid block full height wall construction and we incorporate all the character of your house into it so it looks as if it was always part of the house.
Orangeries are a great way to have the best of both worlds, they are of a flat roof construction with a roof light in the centre of the roof, and this allows as much natural light in as possible.
Based on your requirements and needs one these three types will in style and size fit into your vision of what best suits your requirements.
