Replace your old conservatoryPosted 12th September 2013 in DIY Conservatories
Many homeowners have a redundant conservatory attached to their home which is never used because it’s cold and draughty in the winter and more like a sauna on a hot summer’s day.
Originally installed many years ago and often inherited when the property changed hands these conservatories waste valuable floor space because they were never originally designed to cope with the extremes of heat and cold that we experience today.
These old structures are more likely to be used today as a large storage cupboard rather than somewhere to relax in and enjoy the garden view.
However, using the latest energy efficient double glazing and upvc profiles it is possible to easily replace your old conservatory with a brand new up to date structure creating an extra room that can be used all year round.
Here’s a couple of examples of just what can be achieved using the existing base and foundations of the previous conservatory.
Replacing an old conservatory with a modern, thermally efficient home extension such as the Livin room style above adds another room at a very affordable cost and is also likely to add value to your property. There are no major excavations or building work required and normally no planning permission as the new conservatory uses the same base as the old one.
The extra permanent living space can be used as a home office, dining room, playroom or simply just a haven to sit back and admire the views.
