If you are considering adding a new conservatory to your home in Swansea, Llanelli, Neath or South Wales, there is a wide range of designs and styles to choose from. There are also many different roof options to consider. A solid tiled roof is a great option for extending your living space and reducing energy costs.
Lean-to conservatories are the most popular type of structure, as they are simple and cheap to build. They are usually rectangular in shape and have a flat angled roof that slopes down to the side of your property, giving them the appearance of being ‘leaning’ against the wall of your house. These are an excellent option for bungalows and terraced houses as they fit well under the eaves of these properties.
Another option is a P-shaped conservatory. This style combines a lean-to conservatory with a Victorian or Edwardian conservatory, creating a versatile and useful space. This type of structure is ideal for larger detached properties, as it creates two distinct living spaces and works well for families.
A gable-end conservatory is another good choice for larger detached properties. Unlike other conservatory types, the front of the gable-end conservatory doesn’t slope back to the centre, which helps the structure to blend into the garden and looks more like the end of the house. This is a very popular conservatory style and is often used to replace older Victorian and Edwardian structures that have been damaged or become too old to repair.
If you want to add a little extra luxury to your home, you could opt for a glazed or polycarbonate conservatory with a tiled roof. This type of roof is incredibly stylish and will allow light to flood into the room. It is also a very safe and energy efficient option, with the glass being treated to prevent harmful UV rays from entering the home and the roof tiles having a solar control coating to reduce heat gain.
AQW offers a full range of conservatories to suit any property, from the small, affordable lean-to design through to the more elaborate orangery. We can even refurbish an existing conservatory in your home and transform it into a temperature-controlled room, adding new windows and doors, including tilt and turn and casement options.
When choosing a conservatory, it is important to think about what you are going to use the structure for and your budget. A conservatory will need to be insulated in order to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the year, so it is important to consider this as you decide which size and style of conservatory you require. In addition, you will need to think about whether you will be adding a solid roof or a polycarbonate one, and if you are building the conservatory from scratch or replacing an existing design. You may also need to consider whether your project falls under permitted development rights or will need planning permission. If you are unsure about these issues, it is always best to contact a professional. conservatories swansea
