Victorian Conservatories Designed and Built Better By Conservatory Designs
The Victorian style conservatory is the most popular style of conservatory and is probable one of the most versatile. Its main feature is a bay style curved front that is normally designed with 3 facets, its pitched roof and ornate ridge details. Care is needed when choosing a Victorian conservatory for semi-detached home as the bay effect cannot face the neighbouring property with the requirement for planning permission. The Victorian conservatories are available in the complete range of colours. We have now also included the Victorian in our new “Value Build” range of modular conservatories which offers a range of standard sizes at significant discount to the bespoke range.
Conservatories Designs use Energy Efficient glass in all their projects. No more too hot in summer and too cold in winter. This glazing will:
- Eliminate heat loss in the cool months
- Help cut energy costs
- Make your conservatory more comfortable during winter
This glass is the latest and most revolutionary development in low emissivity glass with a U value of 1.1m/m2k. Heat generated within the room is reflected internally back into the room while cold from the outside is reflected back out while retaining 100% of the light transmission.
We offer a choice of 35mm polycarbonate which incorporates 7 layers of insulation or Vista Therm Blue Elite glass. However for 2012 we have installed the Activ Blue glazing in 97% of all roofs installed so there is a clear trend emerging where glass is now by far the preferred method of roof glazing This glazing option combines the Vista Therm Elite glazing to the inside with a blue tint antisun glass to the outside. The outside pane also has self cleaning solar control capabilities given the right conditions.
The attractive blue tint was specially designed for conservatory roofs and also offers excellent light transmission.

Our Marlon range of Polycarbonate is available in a range of colours including Clear, Tinted, Opal, and Tint on Opal. Polycarbonate is a remarkable insulating glazing material with a U value of 1.2. matching that of our Elite glass. Those clients whose conservatory may be overlooked by neighbours may also prefer the privacy offered by polycarbonate.
