Pennine Transformations...

Transformations are all about giving you the best of both worlds: use your existing conservatory or orangery footprint, and give it a new lease of life by adding the very latest features.

You can choose to retain the conservatory base, replacing the frames and roof. Or you could simply replace just the roof to revamp the appearance and performance of the room.

    Transforming your existing Edwardian Conservatory...

    Transforming your existing Edwardian Conservatory...

    • UPVC French doors, tilt and turn windows and full height frames were brought together with energy efficient roof glass and frame glass to totally transform the appearance and performance of this conservatory.

      Even though the style of the conservatory remained unchanged, the new model is barely recognisable due to its’ robust, modern and sleek design. One of the more subtle improvements to this conservatory was the inclusion of an external cornice which has been fitted around the perimeter of the roof to excellent effect.

    • This large double-hipped Edwardian conservatory offered the owners a lot of floor space which was sadly being underused due, in large part, to its inefficient glazing and polycarbonate roof covering.

      Its use was limited mainly for storage, and signs of age were also starting to show, as is the case with many conservatories which were installed throughout the late 80’s and 90’s. Being such a big part of the property, the owners sought to not only make this conservatory a more usable space all year round, but also make it a focal point of their home.

    Transform from rosewood to chartwell green...

    • With the existing base untouched, chartwell green casement windows and French doors were installed in place of their timber predecessors and the theme was continued with a chartwell green cornice and roof, which is Edwardian in style as opposed the lean-to style which previously existed.

      Crucially, thermally efficient performance roof glass was specified as were the very best door handles, hinges and locking system. The new conservatory was fitted to the existing blueprint but the Edwardian roof gives more height to the room, and the feeling of more space. An internal lighting pelmet with integrated spotlights also features in this fantastic example of a conservatory transformation.

    • This timber-frame lean-to conservatory fitted to the rear of a bungalow had served the homeowners extremely well for many years. However, owing to the great amount of time spent in their conservatory they decided that a transformation would be a very worthwhile investment.

      A fresh appearance – both internally and externally –, better insulation and enhanced security were all included on the brief, while at the same time utilising the existing base which has stood the test of time extremely well and did not need replacing. Surrounded by a stunning array of plants and flowers the owners also wanted to retain their uninterrupted view of the garden.

    Transforming your conservatory both inside and out...

    • Transformations are all about giving you the best of both worlds: use your existing conservatory or orangery footprint, and give it a new lease of life by adding the very latest features. You can choose to retain the conservatory base, replacing the frames and roof, or you could simply replace just the roof to revamp the appearance and performance of the room.

    • In many cases a brick built conservatory base will remain completely fit-for-purpose for decades, whereas the windows, doors and roof that make the rest of the structure can become tired and show signs of wear and tear, typically after 10 years depending on how well they have been maintained. Replacing these features can prove much more cost effective than the original conservatory build.

    • If your conservatory revamp is motivated more by desire than necessity you may find that you are able to retain the existing base, windows and doors. Providing that your conservatory windows and doors were originally manufactured to a high standard, and still deliver the insulation, security and functionality that you require then simply upgrading your conservatory roof will make a huge difference to its feel and appearance.

    • Early examples of conservatories will likely incorporate a polycarbonate glazed roof, and these conservatories arguably offer the greatest scope for quick and cost-effective transformations. Broadly speaking there are two options upgrade to a glass-glazed roof or convert the conservatory to a sunroom by replacing the polycarbonate with an innovative lightweight solid roof, designed specifically for conservatories.

    From victorian conservatory to orangery...

    From victorian conservatory to orangery...

    • This was a radical transformation to say the least and, although not essential, the owner chose to alter the shape of the base to give them an Edwardian blueprint as opposed to Victorian. Brick pillars were also built when the base was altered in preparation for a contemporary orangery installation, complete with external cornice and glass roof. Flush-sash heritage casement windows were used for the orangery install to match the windows and doors fitted in the main building.

      The interior was given equal attention and a wall mounted flat screen television, and numerous soft furnishings, suggest that this orangery is now the best seat in the house for rest and relaxation.

    • A typical late-90’s Victorian conservatory existed at the rear of this detached house, featuring a dwarf wall, white frames, French doors and a polycarbonate roof.

      Visually there was not a great deal wrong with this example, although it certainly didn’t inspire the homeowner in the same way that more recent conservatory and orangery options did. The polycarbonate roof remained in good physical condition but did not offer the best insulation, the result of which was a very warm room in the summer and, likewise, a very cold one in the winter months. The homeowner’s infrequent use of the conservatory reflected the shortcomings in its performance.

    Classic lean-to conservatory transformed with a solid tiled roof...

    • A classic hipped lean-to conservatory with polycarbonate glazed roof provided the perfect transition between home and garden at this property, but as a result of extensive use it was showing some signs of age.

      The roof in particular was tired and in need of refurbishment to properly do justice to the rest of the property and surrounding gardens. As is often the case though, the conservatory base and the windows and doors remained completely fit-for-purpose and, after very little maintenance, were still very clean and undamaged. Consequently a replacement roof was sought for this transformation.
