Conservatory Advice

When navigating the main categories (above) you will find more detailed advice to help you understand all aspects of owning a conservatory.

We cover such topics as:

  • Building Regulations – Building Regulations set minimum standards for the health, safety, comfort and convenience of building users in the construction of buildings.
  • Conservation Areas and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – If you live in a Conservation area or an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), you will usually need Planning Permission before building a conservatory.
  • Conservatory Design – You may already have an idea of the conservatory design you would like for your home, or you may be constrained in your choice if you have a period property and it is necessary to match it with a traditional conservatory of the same period.
  • Conservatory Flooring – Before choosing a floor material for your conservatory you must consider the use you will be putting your conservatory to.
  • Conservatory Glass – When selecting the glazing for a conservatory, glass is usually a much better option than cheap polycarbonate alternatives that can become opaque and marked over time.
  • Conservatory Ground Conditions & Conservatory Foundations – Before any work can be started on the foundations of a conservatory, an understanding of the subsoil strata on the site is needed.
  • Planning Permission – Planning Permission and Building Regulations are two different issues in the planning and building of a conservatory and should not be confused even though your Local Authority manage both.

…and much more.
