Conservatories

Conservatories Expertly Manufactured & Installed by Sapphire Windows

A conservatory is the most wonderful way of creating a bright new living space as well as adding value to your home. Your conservatory is more than just an extension to your house, it can be somewhere to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of your garden or a place to entertain, no matter what the weather!

With this in mind, there are numerous glass or solid roof options to consider giving you increased insulation in winter months and reduce temperatures in summer months.

Whether you are looking for a conservatory that is traditional in style or contemporary, Sapphire Windows can create whatever you have in mind.

Our glass, polycarbonate and solid roofs are available in a wide choice of finishes.

Conservatory Design Options

uPVC Edwardian Conservatory

Rectangular or square in form, the Edwardian has flat walls to maximise the amount of usable space. 

One of its most attractive features is a ‘double hipped’ or sloping pitched roof. This gives your conservatory a delightful ‘vaulted’ effect, filled with natural light.

Taking its influence from period architecture, a uPVC Edwardian conservatory offers a simple, yet understated style designed to blend seamlessly with the rest of your home.

 

uPVC Victorian Conservatory

The Victorian conservatory design is one of the most popular in the UK, and with charm and style in abundance, it’s easy to see why.

Inspired by period architecture, our conservatories’ design echoes the attractive features and ornate finishing touches you’d expect from Victorian buildings.

It’s also available with 3 or 5 facets, making it easy to adapt to any space, from a large garden to a small patio.

uPVC Lean-To Conservatory

A lean-to conservatory is a simple, fuss-free building that often runs along the back of your property. 

With a minimalist style and clean lines, it’s a simple way to link your interior space to your garden and maximise the space you have available.

It’s also one of the cheapest types of conservatories available on the market. 

Despite this, a lean-to conservatory offers outstanding performance, giving you a space you can enjoy for years to come, whatever the weather.

uPVC Gable End Conservatory

If you’re looking for a conservatory that offers the perfect combination of light, space and outstanding performance, you won’t go far wrong with a gable-end. 

With its roots in Georgian architecture, the design maximises the amount of available floor space, with a few external design flourishes added for good measure. 

The most attractive feature of this style of conservatory is its front elevation, with the gable end enabling the windows to go right up to the apex of the roof, flooding your new space with natural light.

Orangeries

Orangeries offer an ideal way to add both light and space to any style of home, orangeries act as the perfect halfway point between full home extension and traditional glazed conservatory. Unlike standard conservatories, they feature robust, thicker pillars and a partially glazed roof which helps to create a welcoming and comfortable living space, allowing large amounts of natural daylight to enter.

Orangeries typically utilise more brickwork compared with a conservatory, feeling much more like a permanent addition to the home. More easily insulated to allow for use 365 days a year, they are characterised by a flat roof and atrium top. Internally, a deep pelmet with downlights help create a relaxing atmosphere.

Sapphire Windows Orangeries are available in a range of colours and woodgrain foil finishes, combining the added space of a conservatory with the sophistication and breath-taking style that only an orangery from us can offer.

Orangeries have become increasingly popular, and it’s easy to see why. A Sapphire Windows orangery can enhance your property and lifestyle.  Furthermore, they instantly create greater living space and give plenty of additional light.

The perfect blend of home extension and glazed conservatory

The popularity of orangeries is mainly because they are suitable to both modern and traditional properties. Orangeries are now typically the preferred option for modern glazed extensions. Especially for Kitchens & dining areas.

Roofing Options

Glass

We offer a range of glazing options in a variety of finishes and thickness. Glass can maximise light and noise. 

Conservatory roof glass may also be chosen to keep itself clean while also keeping you cool in the heat of summer and warm in the chill of winter.

Polycarbonate

This can provide a cost effective solution to roof glazing. With 25 mm thickness it is available in different options: clear, bronze, opal, bronze opal and heatguard. 

They differ in colour, light and solar transmission, u-value and shading efficiency.

Solid Tiled

Solid tiled roofs are lightweight, well insulated and provide the robust feel of an extension, whilst not losing the light and airy environment of a conservatory internally.

They’re available in a choice of colours to complement your home. 

Case Study - Solid Tiled Conservatory Roof

Is your conservatory in need of an upgrade? Is it too cold in the winter? Is it too hot in the summer?

Typically, many dated conservatories are unusable all year round due to poor climate control. By refurbishing your conservatory, you can create a space that can be used anytime of the year, whatever the weather.

There are many refurbishment options, from replacing the roof only, replacing the roof, windows & doors, replacing existing with a modern sliding or bi-folding door, or a complete conservatory replacement.

We have found that it has become increasingly popular for customers to replace their existing conservatory roofs with solid roofs such as the two case studies below.

What Sets Our Conservatories Apart?

  • We manufacture our own windows. All our products are made to measure, they’ll be expertly fabricated by our master craftsmen, using the latest cutting edge machinery at our factory in Ammanford, Carmarthenshire. We don't buy an entry level trade window.
  • Huge choice of colours. For a more traditional look wood grain foil laminates are available. Whether its vibrant Golden Oak or rich Rosewood, the effect is a solid, satisfying, realistic appearance that belies the technology and performance hidden beneath. However if a wood grain or white window isn’t what you desire, we have a range of colours to suit every pallet.
  • Choice of windows styles to suit any property. Our Traditional chamfered window, with it's effective yet gentle chamfered design looks sharp and stays that way with no nooks or crannies for dirt to collect. Or our Heritage Flush sash window is a perfect choice for traditional or contemporary homes alike. Designed to replicate a traditional timber window, the products’s subtle charm and elegance transforms a building like no other.
  • Our windows are stronger as we use a 70mm frame. An increased width of 70mm actually allows the profile to be narrower (reducing the sightlines) whilst improving on the high levels of structural and insulating performance. Incidentally, a 70mm width also means that paint lines and mastic residue from previous windows can be fully covered.
  • By using the very best uPVC profile & hardware we are able to offer the most secure windows. Our windows have attained BS7950 and PAS 24 security product standards.
  • Our windows achieve the best thermal performance. By using a 70mm frame & high performing thermal glass our windows far exceed the thermal performance required by building regulations. We only offer the best A rated window as standard.
  • For our weather climate, superior weather performance is important. Our windows are tested to the latest European standards for water ingress, air permeability and wind resistance. Air Permeability EN1026, Water Tightness EN1027, Wind Resistance EN 12211.
  • We use a neutral grey colour for the seals and gaskets of our white windows. Where other windows on the market will use black seals. We believe that a traditional black gasket on white framing would have broken the smooth lines of our window design.
