Gable Conservatories, as the name would suggest, are built with an angular glazed, gable front wall and are sometimes referred to as Regency Conservatories.
With the same rectangular floor space as Edwardian Conservatories but without the hipped front, Gable Conservatories have a continuous ridge from the house wall to the front of the conservatory.
This forms a high, angled glazed front wall section, or gable, which creates a greater sense of space and height to the roof of Gable Conservatories.
It also helps to keep your internal room brighter by allowing light to stream in from the high front windows – ideal for north facing Gable Conservatories where an internal room may otherwise be too dark.
The high glazed angled window to the front is often decorated with a sunburst effect either using shaped PVCu profile or shaped Georgian bar between the two sheets of glass in the sealed units.
The extremely versatile design of Gable Conservatories allows the roof to be built with a pitch as low as 15º or as steep as 35º.
Further, when hipped back to a box gutter or built against a new tiled dormer, Gable Conservatories can also be built on to a bungalow.
Most companies also offer a choice of finial and cresting to finish of the ridge of the conservatory – or you can keep it simple, with none at all.
