Style spotlight: Victorian

A popular conservatory style, distinguished by a three or five faceted front, which gives the conservatory a curved appearance. A particular favourite with owners of period properties, its elegant proportions and fan-style roof add aesthetic appeal.

Our showsite example features 600mm brick dwarf walls and a roof glazed with Pilkington Activ Blue panels. These not only look good, they help keep internal temperatures cool on hot days while maintaining excellent light transmittance and high energy absorption.

We also have considerable expertise in the construction of conservatories using hardwood frames: please ask.

Style spotlight: Edwardian & Georgian

Due to its square or rectangular plan, the Georgian conservatory design offers excellent use of its floor space. Energy-efficient features such as Pilkington Activ Blue roof-glazing help make an Admiral conservatory a home extension that you can use throughout the seasons.  For even better insulation, we could install a solid panelled Ultraframe Live In roof or an Equinox tiled roof.

edwardian_intThe Edwardian differs from the Georgian style of conservatory only in that it features a roof that slopes on all sides, making this design suitable for locations where low eaves heights are a constraint.

We have installed many of these conservatories over the years. Our Chilton showsite example features dwarf walls rendered in chalk white, Duraflex uPVC window frames and open-out French doors on its front facet.
