When it comes to glazed extensions, there is more choice than ever
15 February 2017 |Advice & Guidance
Once, conservatories had a bad reputation. They were the tacky white boxes that stifled you in summer, froze in winter and were a constant headache to keep clean and maintain. Not so in 2017, says Norman Hornigold, Sales Director. Modern technology and manufacturers that strive to meet ever-increasing customer expectations have resulted in a fabulous choice of stylish, tasteful, high-performance conservatories and glazed extensions suitable for any project or property.
“Of the UK’s over three million conservatories, a large proportion of them come from a time when the average conservatory product was much more basic, and homeowners were much less discerning,” says Norman. “That is where the negative associations some people still have about conservatories stem from – but in a relatively short amount of time, the technology has drastically improved.”
“High-maintenance polycarbonate roofs have been replaced by state-of-the-art self-cleaning glass, while modern uPVC and aluminium frames offer the sort of fantastic thermal efficiency and insulation that keeps heat in, draughts out and keeps energy bills low. In summer, vents, fan-light windows and reflective roof glazing keep interior spaces cool and comfortable – and whether you’re looking for an all-glazed conservatory, or something that feels more like another room in your house, there is now an amazing range of products to choose from.”
“At SEH BAC, for example, the perfect choice for homeowners looking to blend the traditional conservatory with a brick-build extension, resulting in an airy, open-plan space that can be enjoyed all year round, could be an Ultraframe glazed extension. Our glazed extensions offer exceptional thermal efficiency – their super insulated columns mean that the resulting space uses half the energy of a similar sized conservatory.”
“Then there is the LivinRoof – an amazingly versatile roof system that is suitable for any roof shape, and allows you to combine solid sections and glazing to meet your exact needs. Inside, the solid roof areas create a stylish vaulted ceiling capable of handling everything from a light shade to a chandelier.”
“For homeowners, there has never been a better time to consider a conservatory. Whatever your tastes and the style of your property, there is a stylish, high-quality, low-maintenance product to suit – and if you want to learn more, don’t hesitate to call or email SEH BAC today.”
