It can prove to be a tough decision to pick a conservatory company from the many available in Torquay. A good conservatory company will offer installation and sales advice after conducting a site survey of your home. Even if you think that your planned conservatory doesn't need any planning permissions, your conservatory installation team will have a full understanding of the details with regards to your area. If you own a listed building or are living in a protected or conservation area you are likely to need some form of planning permission to erect a conservatory from the local council offices.

There are several styles of conservatory to select from to match the appearance of home:

  • Victorian - With a rounded front wall and a ridged roof, the Victorian style conservatory is a timeless choice and certainly one of the most well-loved styles.
  • Edwardian - Comparable in design to the Victorian conservatory, but with a flat front wall which provides more interior space and is ideal for use as a dining room, or entertaining area.
  • Lantern - A much taller conservatory with a glazed central structure which looks gorgeous on larger homes. It is often called an orangery.
  • P-Shaped - The P-Shaped style generates a spacious interior and combines the lean-to and Victorian versions.
  • Lean-to - A style that matches practically any home, the lean-to is the simplest conservatory to build.
  • Gable - Also often known as the Georgian conservatory, the gable has a triangle shaped front allowing sunlight to fill the room.

Conservatory Quotes Torquay Devon

The roof of your conservatory can easily be made to match that of your home. With a vaulted ceiling and tiled roof your conservatory won't interfere with the smooth flow of your interior and seem like an innate extension to your house. The added space generated by a conservatory with a solid roof allows for more options in its usage, and it could perhaps even be transformed into an additional bedroom with the extra privacy.

A panelled style roof is yet another possibility to contemplate if you are not in favour of installing a full glass or solid roof to your new conservatory. The mix of solid panels and glazing allows you an even greater degree of privacy whilst still allowing your conservatory to be awash with sunlight.

Fully glazed sides or half walled are no longer the only alternatives for your conservatory. Consistently growing in popularity in Torquay are the so called orangery conservatories. An orangery will still let lots of light into your conservatory space, but is made with brick framing allowing it to blend beautifully with the design of your house. The much taller, lantern style roof and mix of glass and plastered walls gives a spacious and light feel to an orangery conservatory.

Before any building work commences, and to ensure that you wind up with a conservatory that will give you many years (if not a lifetime) of use, make sure all your requirements and needs have been discussed with your conservatory company. You should ask for guidance and advice from your Torquay conservatory company and seek recommendations on all the different styles, electrical fittings, shading and floor finishes which suit your exact requirements, and the sort of conservatory you are looking for. You should ask your installation company for an all-inclusive overall price so as to avoid any nasty shocks when the bill arrives.

To reduce the cost of a conservatory it's possible to build and install your own, although this is only possible if you have a bit of experience in construction work. It is suggested however, that with all but the simplest installations, retaining an experienced conservatory installation company is the most sensible option. This will cost quite a bit more initially, but will probably cost you significantly less in terms of stress and later problems.

Obtain 3 or 4 estimates from a number of conservatory installers to make certain you get the best deal possible. Ask for customer references along with a portfolio showcasing the company's latest work and installations. Most conservatory companies in Torquay will provide this info in the planning phase to highlight their portfolio of projects and demonstrate their products and services.

uPVC Conservatory Torquay

uPVC Conservatories Torquay (01803)

The favoured choice of material for many modern conservatories in Torquay is uPVC. A uPVC conservatory has excellent insulation characteristics, requires minimal maintenance and is weatherproof, draught proof when coupled with double glazed windows and roofing. The uPVC frame can be tinted/coloured to your choice and even be given a wood grain effect for that natural look without the regular yearly maintenance of a conservatory made from "real" timber.

The durable nature of uPVC means that annual maintenance is reduced to a brief wipe down with a damp cloth, rather than the painting or staining of wood to stop it rotting or warping. This is why the vast majority of new conservatory installations in Torquay are created with uPVC frames. Whichever shape and style of conservatory you want, there is a uPVC product to satisfy your needs. Whether your preferred choice is the classic elegance of an Edwardian, Victorian or gable-ended conservatory, or the minimalistic look of a lean-to, there's a design of uPVC conservatory for you.

Victorian Conservatories Torquay

If you are considering extending your property in Torquay, then a conservatory is one of the most popular options. Coming up with conservatory ideas on the other hand, can be quite a daunting task. There are many types of conservatory that you can choose from, and each has their own unique design. Among the predominant style types are: P-shaped conservatories, Victorian conservatories, gable-fronted conservatories, lean-to conservatories, Edwardian conservatories and Georgian conservatories. Out of all these conservatories, by far the most popular design for modern homeowners in Torquay is the Victorian conservatory.

The Victorian conservatory has been around since the reign of Queen Victoria, who ruled in England from 1837 until 1901. It is characteristic in its design by having an almost octagonal shape, with around seven splays. The term splay is pretty much outdated nowadays and has been replaced by the more common wording of bay or facet. Another characteristic of this design is the pitched roof, which typically has very ornate mouldings running along its apex. The roof itself can often be very extravagant, and many are found to be domed in design.

There were many well-known conservatories built during the Victorian era. Many of these were built in botanical gardens, as another key characteristic of conservatories is their ability to utilise the maximum amount of light available on any given day. Probably the most famous of these is the conservatory built at Kew Gardens in 1859. This conservatory is the oldest surviving glasshouse in existence today. The popularity of Victorian conservatories sparked huge interest in this period, not only in the UK, but also around the world. With the British monarchy having influence on most continents, so the building of these elaborate Victorian structures boomed. Many of these are still fully functional to this day, and are key attractions in their respective locations.
