THE CONSERVATORY

Window and Door Frames

The hand-built custom-designed frames are traditionally styled to elegant proportions from Brazilian Red Cedar ,Merranti, Sapele or a similar hardwood from a sustainable source and manufactured using traditional joinery methods . The style of joinery can be from our standard range or to your own design. Heights and widths will be tailored to give the best possible match to existing house windows and doors .

Roof

The roof can be fabricated from a powder coated aluminium patent glazing system or hardwood rafters with an external powder coated aluminium capping system .

The exterior of either roof is designed to be virtually maintenance free and will normally only require periodic cleaning.

Roof, door and window glazing

For standard use our conservatories are glazed throughout with 24 mm double glazed units using toughened glass . Where a property is Listed we can provide alternative units which would normally meet Local Authority requirements.

We are able to offer the full range of Pilkington and Saint-Gobain glass products which offer properties such as improved insulation , reduced UV transmission and self cleaning . Our expertise will help you choose the best product for your project .

Ventilation

We can supply manual or automatic opening roof vents together with a wide range of sensors and programmers .

Furniture and fittings

Our doors will normally be fitted with espagnolette shoot bolts giving maximum security against forced entry together with cabin hooks and slide bolts .
Opening sashes will normally be fitted with casement stays and fasteners.
There is a choice of material including brass and stainless steel .

Rainwater goods

Ogee PVC guttering and round down pipes are standard fit with powder coated cast aluminium being a popular option

Where box gutters are required they will be fabricated in aluminium or formed using traditional lead sheet techniques .

Decoration

The conservatory frames will be painted with 2 coats of high quality Sikkens paint prior to leaving our works with a third coat being applied on site to give a quality finish .This system requires a minimum of maintenance and being microporous allows the timber to breath .
A full range of carefully selected colours are available .

Guarantee

Our Conservatories carry a comprehensive guarantee ranging from 5 to 15 years depending on the product . Full details are available on request.

THE BASE

The base foundation will be excavated by hand or small machine 450mm (18") wide and to a maximum depth of 1000mm (39"). The trench will then be almost filled with solid concrete to provide a substantial foundation.

The dwarf wall will be raised off the concrete foundation comprising an outer skin of faced brickwork, 75mm wide cavity, and an inner 100mm plastered block work skin .
Variations including reclaimed bricks, render or ragstone are also available .

The floor area will be formed from hard-core blinded with sand and topped with approximately 100mm (4") of solid concrete followed by a screed finish suitable for most types of floor finish, including ceramic tiles, quarry tiles, carpet, etc.

Structurally our bases are always built to Building Regulation standards which would be equally suitable for a full extension as we believe a sound base ensures no future movement in the upper structure .

We are continually improving the design and performance of our products.. We therefore reserve the right to vary specifications without notice.
