The style of conservatory which homeowners eventually decide on is ultimately down personal choice but they really ought to suit the host house and garden in terms of style and size. And it also needs to suit your budget.
We take the view that a conservatory should at least look as though it was built at the same time as the host property. In that way, your new conservatory should appear to be a credible part of the overall design of the house, whilst also being in harmony with the garden.
There are a number of conservatory roof companies which manufacture well engineered and well-designed conservatory roofs but at Just a Quote we tend to recommend just a handful of them.
Our installation companies will go into much more detail during a survey but you can guarantee that all of the companies we work with will have taken into consideration that in the United Kingdom, your conservatory during its first ten years will have had to cope with:
- almost 30 feet of rainwater,
- 200 days of snow and
- 3,650 days of temperatures ranging from 10º or 15º below freezing to, well at least sometimes, a hotter than average 35º.
A conservatory’s specification should take account of its aspect
At Just a Quote our installation companies’ conservatory designers also take into account the aspect of the conservatory. If your conservatory faces north it will probably need more insulation and if it is south facing, will need more ventilation.
Additional protection from overheating can be designed in with the correct type of conservatory glazing, by recommending heat reflective polycarbonate or anti-sun glass in the roof.
Our intention is to ensure that your new conservatory should be designed to be usable throughout the whole of the year.
