The most cost-effective way to create extra space in your home is to add on a conservatory. Made mainly of glazed panels (usually resting on a brick built base) in a timber, uPVC or aluminium frame, a conservatory will flood your living space with light and can be put to many different uses. Conservatories do not usually need planning permission and building regulations are covered by our membership of FENSA.
At Alan Joy Windows we are expert at installing conservatories. All our conservatories are bespoke and are installed professionally and efficiently, with the minimum of fuss and bother.
A conservatory can add the “wow” factor to your home, besides being a useful extension and will probably increase the value of your property significantly.
The secret of success with a conservatory is to ensure it maintains a comfortable temperature whatever the season or the weather. This can be achieved by carefully choosing the right materials and – if your budget allows – adding central heating or underfloor heating to the space.
When you consult with us about installing a conservatory, we will survey your property and advise you on the best way to ensure your conservatory is thermally efficient.
Using specialist glass for glazing the roof, windows or both in your conservatory can help regulate the temperature and make it easier to maintain your conservatory. Thermally efficient glass in double-glazed panels filled with an energy efficient gas like argon, for example, will keep the heat in and the cold out. Tinted glass can reduce the glare of the sun in the height of summer, and self-cleaning glass reacts with sunlight to break down dirt.
Deciding which style of conservatory to choose is a daunting task because there are so many versions available. Most popular is the Victorian style, with a pitched roof, ornate roof ridge and bay front – a versatile and attractive extension that suits any house. If you prefer something plainer, go for an Edwardian or Georgian style conservatory which is rectangular with a flat front, giving you more space.
Other decisions to be made when planning a conservatory include how many doors and windows you want; what size and type of doors do you need; how many opening windows do you require, and whether you want to add roof vents. You may want to add electrical sockets and lighting. It’s important that the brickwork and finish of your conservatory blends in with not only the house to which it is attached, but also with your garden.
