The benefits of adding a conservatory to a home are well known. Unless you live in a palace, any home will benefit from the bright, airy and comfortable extra living space a well-designed conservatory can bring. Your conservatory is the ideal place to relax with the family, enjoy views of your garden (whatever the weather), and will instantly add to the market value of your home.

However, although a conservatory can be an excellent investment, the cost of buying one through a traditional conservatory or glazing company can be staggering. With their army of sharp-suited sales reps, traditional conservatory companies add considerably to the price through commissions, unfavourable finance deals, overheads and the mandatory use of in-house building staff. These extra costs quickly make adding that beautiful new conservatory beyond the reach of many homeowners, especially in these uncertain money-conscious times.
