A conservatory is considered a good cost effective way to add light and space to your home. Because most domestic conservatories are exempt from Building Regulations and Planning permissions they can be bought and installed with the minimum of fuss
For customers in the Guildford area we have been involved with designing and manufacturing high quality conservatories for years. Whether you are looking for a conservatory that is contemporary or traditional, complex or with clean lines we can advise and provide. In days gone by most conservatory designs were based around such conservatory designs as the Victorian conservatory, Georgian conservatory, Lean to / Mediterranean conservatory, P-shape conservatory, T-shape conservatory, Lantern conservatory, Gable conservatory, Solid Roof Conservatories or Large span/portal conservatory. Now days, rather than you having to choose from a shape being offered we can help you design and provide a shape that suits you
A great alternative to the conservatory is the veranda that involves no solid walls and lots of glass and awnings etc. The veranda offers a protective pocket on your terrace or other outside area where you can be protected from hot or cold weather. Space can be controlled by using large inline sliders or bi-folding doors. When equipped with additional options, such as heating and light you get year-round- function. Space can be controlled by using large inline sliders or bi-folding doors. The Verandah looks stunning, coming with a choice of a number of colours to suit your requirements be they green, grey, white or others.
An orangery offers a different take on traditional conservatories. The orangery is based on a traditional atrium-style conservatory with non glass walls but with a modern technology glass roof. With an orangery your adjoining rooms flood with light and there’s a feeling of space that comes from the interior height of the orangery. Like conservatories, orangeries come in variety of different designs. They fall between a conservatory and traditional extension styles. With their pillars, orangeries offer more privacy than conservatory styles and the interior height provides a breathtaking focal point through which light floods in. Your orangery often offers a seamless link between home and garden
Glass extensions are often the smarter way to extend your home. Often providing extra space in which to spread out and relax. Putting together your perfect glass extension often starts with talking to us for ideas and suppliers. We’ll ask all the right questions to find out what you want from your extra space, make suggestions and discuss all the options with you. These plans can then be submitted for planning permission or if you prefer, we can take care of that too and submit them on your behalf
Extending your home is exciting – whether you’re using the space for living, dining or even extending your kitchen it can add significant value to your property and of course overcome your space issues. There are so many different ways that you can extend your home but it’s essential that you give consideration to some key questions – such as how will you make the most of the space? Will the space be open-plan to the rest of your property? Who will carry out the work?
One of the biggest mistakes people make when they have a new extension (be it a conservatory / orangery / extension) is not considering the practical elements of how the space will flow next to your existing property. You don’t necessarily need to go to the expense of consulting an architect to design your space, we can help you design your space and show you drawings of what the space will look like
Always bear in mind that the space you will gain indoors will take away from the space you have in your garden. So be sure about the positioning of your extension – does it need to flow off existing exits? Does this give you the best perspective of your garden? Until the footings are ready to be dug out, take all the time you need to consider the best position of your extension to make the most of natural daylight
We will be able to guide you in the Guildford area through certain restrictions. For example, if you have a drain cover near your property there will be restrictions around building over it.

Often people are put off by the red tape associated by home extensions. The simple way to consider it is Planning Permission deals with what you can build and where you build it and Building Regulations deal with the how you build it. There are some general rules, which apply to most properties in the UK, and there will be specific factors to consider for your own property – such as whether your house is previously extended or if you live in a conservation area, or a listed property
