If you are looking to add more space to your home and increase its value, you might have been thinking about getting a conservatory installed.
With so many people looking for additional indoor and outdoor living spaces, and natural light, you can add value to your home if you choose to connect your indoors with your outdoors by adding a conservatory to enjoy your garden in the winter or set up your office.
Below you will find a list of things you should consider when getting started with the project.
Glass and Insulation
The first thing you need to consider is that you will have to insulate the room to make it usable in the summer heat and during the cold winter months.
If you opt for a single skim footing, chances are that you will have to add some insulation if you want to use your conservatory all year round.
Double or triple glazing will also be beneficial if you want to make use of the room in the winter and still enjoy natural light.
It is also crucial to think through how easy it will be to clean your conservatory from the outside.
If you want to keep it functional and great looking for longer, you might want to opt for a moss prevention treatment, as you might face with warped panels if you don’t have the means of removing leaves and moss from the roof.
Before you start your project, talk to a professional company such as PH Roofing about the different roofing and self-cleaning options.
Heating and Climate Control
If you would like to turn a part of your conservatory or orangery into a home office or study, you need to take care of the heating and climate control so you don’t get too hot or cold when working away.
There are various conservatory heating and humidity control devices available on the market, depending on the size of your room and your insulation methods.
