Although this is a website dedicated mostly to uPVC windows and doors, we feel that uPVC conservatories are very tightly connected with them and deserve a special mention.

A conservatory can simply be described as a room with a glass roof and walls, attached to a house and used as a sun lounge or a greenhouse. At least this is how the Oxford dictionary describes it. Conservatories have first been introduced back in the 17th century and have played an important role in the outlook of British houses ever since. The reason they became so popular in the United Kingdom is the climate as they give you the option to have the benefit of the outdoors from the comfort of indoors. Conservatories were initially used as a place to nurture plants that would not be able to survive in the UK climate. Nowadays, they are used for a variety of purposes.

By tradition conservatory frames were manufactured out of timber or wood. But contemporary technology has stepped in and the majority of conservatories are now built out of uPVC. This is because uPVC conservatories are not only much cheaper but also require far less upholding. Edwardian, Victorian, Mediterranean and Bespok conservatories are just a few of many styles used to make an uPVC conservatory.
