Questions

Do we need to install Insulating Double Glazing Units (IGUs) and if so, which ones?

On April 1st 2002, the Government introduced Part L, amending the Building Regulations for the first time, to require replacement windows and doors to meet tough new thermal performance standards. The standard applies when new doors replace an existing window or you change the doors between the house and conservatory, but not when you keep the existing lockable French doors or patio doors between house and consrvatory. Ultraframe Conservaglass™ offers a better combination of warmth in winter and reduction in summertime solar heat gain than standard 'low e' sealed units.

We haven't seen the conservatory we want in anyone's brochure. does that mean we can't have it?

Since all conservatories are made to order, you can have anything that's physically achievable. A chat with a specialist conservatory designer, via Ultra installer member, will open up possibilities you may have never even dreamed of.

Do we need planning permission?

Probably not - unless you are adding a conservatory to a house that has already been extended. You may also need to check if your house is a 'newbuild' as developers sometimes have restrictions placed upon them.

Can my conservatory be used all year round?

Modern conservatories, with insulated bases and cavity walls which feature doulble glazed units and a thermally efficient roof, can indeed be used all year round. The prudent use of relevant heating technology will also help. Comfort levels can be further enhanced with the use of Conservaglass™. This is the revolutionary new type of glazing specially developed to keep conservatories warm in winter and cool in summer, by excluding solar radiation.

Do you make conservatories to order?

All conservatories are made to measure and can be personalised with a host of accessories and design features both inside and out.

How soon can we have our conservatory?

The average turnaround time is 6 to 10 working weeks from receiving the oreder in writing (depending on weather or if planning permission is required). It can take longer at the busiest times of the year.

My builder has constructed my base - what's the next step?

Contact an installer who will check the base is square and level and undertake the design and manufacture of your side frames and conservatory roof.

The neighbours are not very friendly. how can we protect our privacy?

Conservatories can be made private by the thoughtful use of obscure glass, solid panels at the sides, blinds or even a solid wall on one side.

We've got an odd shaped space/unusual wall/sloping garden. Can we still have a conservatory?

Contact us with a simple scetch of the problem. There's always a solution and the chances are we'll come up with several alternatives.
