Are you fed up with your Conservatory that is Too Hot in the Summer and Too Cold in the Winter? Well it is time to consider a new introduction to our tiled effect conservatory roof ranges called Guardian.
Diy Conservatory News23
Flat roof and lantern options for orangeries can be a difficult area of decision making when you consider what is available pre-fabricated. There is an array of materials that are common to this type of construction predominantly being timber , plywood, steel and aluminium.
Diy Conservatory News 22
There has been improvements in the ranges of colours offered recently with upvc windows and doors especially with wood grains and wood effect options but there are practical problems that restrict the access to all of these for most builds. There is no comparison however with the limitless colour range freely available with Beaufort aluminium windows and doors. 
Diy Conservatory News 21
K2 has extended its orangery range recently with the Rio orangery roof and lantern option. It is in my view the answer to a number of set backs with all - timber construction flat roof orangeries , removing the guesswork , unpredictability and weight issues of timber flat roofs.
Diy Conservatory News 20
We have had a number of range additions and improvements to our orangey ranges recently -so we thought it was time to provide a clearer picture on one page as to what we are now able to provide if you enquire about our ranges or ask for a quote.

We believe that when it comes to choosing the right diy roof for your re-furb or new build conservatory or orangery that choice is always good. It is possible to provide a reasonable range of options with one manufacturer but like a shop full of sweets it is always good to compare all the options and the decide on what is best for your build. We are not restricted by one choice so our advise will not be biased like many of our competitors.
Diy Conservatory News 18
It was an enjoyable journey to get to our final choice for our top combination of premium brands for our Ultraframe Livin Room diy orangery kit, but it was worth the effort : Ultraframe , Kommerling, Beaufort and Liniar.
Diy Conservatory News 17
Kommerling are probably not recognised or acknowledged as much as they should be as the first company to introduce lead free upvc windows and doors in this country. It is now an important consideration and requirement for our customers in their decision making when buying doors and windows.
Diy Conservatory News 16
It is unusual in any one month to announce another innovative product to our customers after the introduction of our very popular Ultraframe Livin Room Orangery Collection, but this is the case with our new conservatory solid tiled roof system called Xtralite.

Diy Conservatory News 14
Have you just bought a house with a low specification conservatory ? or maybe you have try to manage with a conservatory you bought without getting the right advise for the glazing and roofing, alternatively maybe the roof is old and starting to leak. These are some of the reasons to consider a roof upgrade or replacement, as well as wall glazing upgrades.
Diy Conservatory News 13
Are you finding it difficult to decide what style of conservatory would be correct for your house type and garden ? - This can be a common problem for many of our customers and can lead to expensive mistakes and mis-calculations if professional advise is not provided before a commitment is made.
Diy Conservatory News 12
It is becoming more acceptable to incorporate larger areas of glass in buildings such as Garden Offices and Studios, because of recent improvements in glass technology with low e glazing. Whether you require good insulation or protection from glare and sunlight – both are now achievable to a high level allowing for a more open and brighter natural environment for your work space.
Diy Conservatory News 11
So you have decided to build your own conservatory – The only problem is there is a niggling doubt about what to do with the manhole on the patio or the soil pipe in the middle of your rear wall as well as a waste pipe and open gulley under the kitchen window

The steel bases , conservatories and diy kit options we supply  are fitted as easily  by joiners and conservatory and window fitters as by builders.
Diy Conservatory News 9
It is a common problem when customers have spoken to builders as to whether they have a conventional extension built or a conservatory. It is an opportunity lost to not look into the benefits of a conservatory type construction with solid end walls to each side for instance combining the feel of both options
Diy Conservatory News 8
It is heart warming when discussing how our customers have fared with their Diy Upvc Conservatory build projects . There is an enormous sense of pride and fulfilment conveyed in their achievement .
Diy Conservatory News 7
Roof vents in my opinion are an essential part of the ventilation requirements in a south facing conservatory or with a lot of direct sunlight . I also use them as an active part of my ventilation scheme if asked for my advise whatever the aspect.
Diy Conservatory News 6
Foundations are an essential part of the conservatory project to take time over and get right. It is easy to understand the consequences of getting it wrong - so my philosophy like a structural engineer is to build to a higher standard than required if conditions are unpredictable
Diy Conservatory News 5
It is a continuous surprise to us in in this energy concious enviroment we live in that most of the enquiries we receive for diy upvc conservatories still request plain double glazing and the thinnest polycarbonate roof option available
Diy Conservatory News 4
Is a upvc conservatory that requires glazing after it is fitted a diy option for your conservatory project ?- Proceed with caution would be my answer.
Diy Conservatory News 3
I find it to be slightly worrying that when buying a high value product like a diy upvc conservatory -that the origin of the conservatory and manufacturer as well as type of guarantee are often not indicated on a website or are taken for granted by buyers.
Diy Conservatory News 2
I have noticed a strong demand recently from our older customers downsizing and then requiring further space when they realise that they are finding it harder than anticipated to manage with a smaller house.
Diy Conservatory News 1
Is there a season for fitting your diy upvc conservatory ? In my view there has historically been a reduction in interest and desire to proceed with that conservatory project when the weather turns in or is close at hand through November to February.
But there is a solution to making that project happen for those who need action and space as soon as possible
