Cornwall Conservatories

At Best Glaze we have been building stunning Cornwall conservatories in Kernow and the surrounding areas for years, each and every project we construct is tailored individually towards the client’s individual requirements, to match their needs and compliment their home whilst providing an amazing additional space. We are Federation Of Master Builders approved, TrustMark offical traders and Ultraframe Installers, we are also FENSA registered, but that is not what makes us unique, although it does show we are a trustworthy company. What makes us unique is the way we handle everything from the initial design right the way through to completion on a personal level. Because we are a family run business, we believe in offering a personal and bespoke service to all of our customers. We will work with you to create a structurally sound room that is also thermally efficient enough to enjoy the whole year round as a functional, extra living space, finished by our highly qualified and trained installation team to the most exacting standards.

Planning & Building Regulations In Cornwall

Our experience of building Cornwall conservatories means we have come across all the unique issues associated with buildings in Cornwall, along with parking, lack of access, waste disposal to name a few of the regular problems we regularly overcome. Housing costs in both Cornwall have rocketed over the years which is why we understand the importance of utilising the available space. When it comes to planning permission and building regulations we are experts, having constructed many orangeries and conservatories in Cornwall’s beautiful conservation areas, as well as dealing with sometimes quite complicated Party Wall agreements.

We take every precaution to ensure that our conservatory clients in Cornwall have total peace of mind when dealing with us, we ensure that all the necessary paperwork is in order prior to work starting on the project. We have fought against poor standards in construction for years, which we have seen many times in Cornwall. Over the years there has been some sites that we refused to be involved with. This is why we are Federation Of Master Builders approved and Trustmark Government endorsed, we work to a strict code of practice and to the highest possible standards on every project.

Cornwall Conservatories – Bespoke Design

Throughout the years we have built numerous conservatories in Cornwall of various conservatory designs, colours and with numerous different building materials. We work extensively through the planning & design stage of the conservatory project with our client to ensure together we use the perfect combination of materials to create the desired style. Often the product chosen for frames and the conservatory roof structure is influenced by the existing homes features or by the homeowners wish for little or no maintenance work. We construct Cornwall conservatories & orangeries using high quality maintenance free uPVC products, aluminium frames and natural hardwood, all available in a huge range of colours or woodgrain finishes, alternatively we can offer bespoke colour conservatories painted to any RAL colour of your choice. If you are wondering what the difference between Cornwall conservatories and orangeries are contact us and we will be happy to give you an in depth explanation and advise you on the best build for your home and needs.

One of the main benefits of our beautiful orangeries and conservatories in Cornwall is the control and focus of natural light, we can plan the project with as little or as much glazing that is required, our conservatory roof glass features the latest technology which allows you to make the most of the beautiful sunny days in Cornwall whilst still having a super thermally efficient conservatory, and for those of our Cornwall conservatory clients seeking a low maintenance conservatory, we always install self-cleaning glass in the roof along with any hard to reach areas.

Nothing makes us happier than building new Cornwall conservatories, however even upgrading existing Cornwall Conservatories can be just as satisfying. Best Glaze can extend an existing conservatory increasing the overall build size, another option is to retain the existing conservatory base and walls and supply and install a Cornwall replacement conservatory roof which will vastly improve the thermal performance and make your existing Cornwall Conservatories look fantastic and be usable all year round.

Cornwall Conservatories – Client Review

We ensure that your Cornwall conservatories are absolutely perfect for our customers by handling the whole project from start to finish. Every detail can be undertaken by us, such as planning permission and the initial planning permission enquiries with the local Cornwall Council. We then begin the construction of the conservatory base and frames including the chosen conservatory roof, then its on to the electrics, plumbing, plastering and then flooring and flourishes. You get the personal experience of dealing with a local family run business based in Cornwall and the peace of mind that comes with having an insurance backed guarantee that covers the whole conservatory build.

We strive to ensure that every one of our Cornwall client’s conservatories suit their existing homes styles and features and create the perfect extra room. Before making a decision on which company you choose to build your conservatory or install a replacement conservatory roof, read this unsolicited and genuine review from Mr D. Goulter from St stephens in Cornwall.

We had Best Glaze install a conservatory with a warm roof along with all our windows and doors in the house. The whole process from start to finish was very smooth and the installation was fantastic. The attention to detail is outstanding, we couldnt be happier with the the service and the product. We cheekily asked if we could have a patio installed around the conservatory as an afterthought and the team worked late and on a weekend to lay it for us. They went above and beyond These people offer a personal touch with a thoughtful team that respects you and your home that clean up after themselves I would highly recommend Best Glaze.

Do I need Planning Permission For A Conservatory?

Planning permission may not be required for your conservatory. Building a conservatory can be allowed as a permitted development. We advise that you check whether planning permission is required for your build with your local authority in Cornwall.

What Is The Difference Between A Conservatory & Orangery?

The main differences between a Conservatory and an Orangery are easily recognisable when you compare them. A conservatory is usually a glass structure that has either a brick built base or a rendered dwarf wall and a pitched roof that is usually made up of over 75% glass. An Orangery consists of soild walls, large windows and a flat roof with a glass lantern or skylights.

Do I Need Footings For A Conservatory Or Extension?

If you are using traditional wet building methods then footings would be required for a Conservatory, Orangery and an Extension. A typical single storey build would require foundations of between 1000mm and 1500mm in depth.

We offer a cleaner faster installation which is well suited to properties with limited access using Durabase which is super thermally efficient, does not require heavy excavation or services and drains to be moved. Durabase is a modern method of building a Conservatory, Orangery or Modular Extension. No deep footings required, no waste to dispose of and much faster installation times.

Which Is Cheapest, Conservatory, Orangery Or Extension?

Usually the cheapest build is a Conservatory, there is less brickwork required for a Conservatory, there is more flexibility in the design and more options to bring the cost down.
There are of course many variables which affect the pricing of any build, cheapest isn’t always best.

How Long Does A Conservatory Take To Build?

Conservatories can be quick to build with a usual conservatory taking around three to four weeks to finish, larger projects obviously would take a little longer. There are many variables to consider when working out build time, such as the size and complexity of the structure along with things like access to the property. Using a Durabase significantly reduces build times, as a typical base and walls can be erected in a day.

Do You Build Kitchen Conservatories?

Kitchen conservatories are on trend right now with a vast amount of the extensions we build being used as a kitchen extension or dining area. A kitchen conservatory needs be well ventilated to allow both heat and smells from cooking to escape. UK building regulations will need to adhered to and planning permission requirements should be checked before commencing with any builds.

Do I Need To Be Home Whilst A Conservatory Is Being Built?

You do not need to be at the premises whilst a conservatory or extension is being built. We do not need to enter your home at all, which is why having a conservatory build during the pandemic is quite safe, contact is minimal.
