Revealed: Why Conservatories Are Making A Come Back
With more and more families needing additional living space and not wanting the hassle and expense of moving, the humble conservatory is making a comeback.
A new conservatory is the quick and easy way to add more space and light into your family home.
Today’s conservatories have changed for the better, with new technology, styles and finishes they can be installed with the minimum of fuss and at affordable prices.
New Glazing Technology
The technology used to create the architecture in glass makes owning a new conservatory a better deal than the older versions. The energy efficient glass helps control the room’s temperature within your home. Low-emissivity (low-E) glass has a thin metallic coating that reflects heat back to its source keeping heat inside the house in the winter and out in the summer.
Energy-efficient glazing also reduces condensation build-up on the inside of the windows.
This new glazing technology means you are able to use your conservatory all year round.
New Modern Designs
The variety of designs stays pretty much the same as older conservatory styles, and the lean to conservatory is still a very popular choice with today’s home owners for a variety of reasons. The clean, simple roof design looks stunning and has a very modern feel. It is also a great choice when space is limited or for properties with low roofs such as bungalows. A new take on the lean to conservatory is the Veranda conservatory which is based on the lean to design, but also has a unique glass roof canopy that extends out over a patio or decking area.
New conservatories are available in a variety of finishes including solid wood, uPVC, aluminium and composite. In the past an uPVC conservatory would only be supplied in a limited range of colours, but today you are able to choose from a large variety of RAL colours giving you more choice.
You can of course employee a double glazing company to manufacture and install your new conservatory. Or if you want to save a few pounds and have the skills to build the conservatory yourself then you could buy a DIY conservatory kit.
