Conservatories are a fantastic way to add space, style and value to your home or business. They come in a wide variety of designs so can be tailored to suit any property, personal taste and budget. As FENSA approved contractors, we have the ability to advise on designs and install conservatories in accordance with the latest Building Regulations and British Security Standards. Below, we’ve provided some initial guidance to help you get started.
Adding a conservatory to a house in Pontefract or elsewhere in the UK is considered to be permitted development and so, does not require planning permission subject to certain limits. These include limitations such as;
One of the first things to think about is where to place your conservatory. Do you want it coming from your kitchen to create an open dining space or from your living room as an extended living space? Consider the view, appearance, available space and where gives you the most sunlight. Planning restrictions also need to be taken into consideration. Wherever you decide to place your conservatory, a strong foundation will be needed to support it.
There are various of styles of conservatories to choose from. Some of the most popular designs we install for customers in Pontefract and the wider West Yorkshire area include:
VICTORIAN – The Victorian style conservatory features a steeply pitched roof and bay front. It is a long-used, stylish and classic design that offers exceptional space and ornate ridge details. Victorian conservatories work well for both period properties and modern builds.
EDWARDIAN – Reflecting the elegant and simple Edwardian architectural style, these conservatories are generally square or rectangular in shape and feature a pitched roof with slopes on all sides, to maximise the light in the room. Floor space is also maximised.
LEAN-TO – A lean-to conservatory is designed to lean against the property with a roof that slopes down at a gentle angle. They are ideal for properties with small gardens as they make the most out of the available space. The pitch can be as low as 2.5 degrees or as high as 30 degrees.
P SHAPE – If you have a good amount of outside space available then why not make the most of it with a p-shape conservatory? These conservatories are essentially a tailored combination of the lean-to and Victorian conservatory, and are bright and spacious.
For a comfortable conservatory that can be used all year round and maintains an ideal temperature, double glazing is a must. By using Low-E glass too, you can reduce heat loss significantly and save on energy bills. Double glazing will also improve sound control. We use high-quality VEKA double glazing systems for conservatories in and around Pontefract.
Our customers throughout West Yorkshire often opt for uPVC frames for their affordability, durability and low-maintenance benefits. It is our material of choice for new conservatories as it has the adaptability to work for all styles of conservatories, is long-lasting and aesthetically-appealing. Other frame material options include aluminium and timber.
The roof of a conservatory transforms the way it looks inside and out. If a glass roof is more your style, double glazing is the best solution to ensure high thermal efficiency and comfort. Glass roofs come in various styles and can be tinted to help reduce sun glare. Tiled conservatory roofs are an increasingly popular option due to their aesthetic appeal and insulating benefits. Roof windows can also be fitted so you still get plenty of natural light.
Choose from a wide range of conservatory door options, from single and French to patio and bi-folding. For property owners wanting to extend their living space out into the garden, the addition of bi-folding doors or sliding patio doors is perfect as they allow plenty of natural light in.
