Over the last decade, the humble conservatory has gone from strength to strength in every aspect you can think of. Eliminating the ‘too hot in summer, too cold in winter’ scenario that plagued conservatories built in the 80s and 90s, modern conservatories stay warm and dry all year round whilst looking their best for at least 20 years or more with little to no maintenance involved.

If your old conservatory has seen better days but your budget won’t permit a complete rebuild, it may be time to consider a conservatory refurbishment.

How do I refurbish my conservatory?

1. Go open plan

Refurbished Contemporary Style

If your conservatory is still in relatively good condition and just needs refreshing, you could remove the doors between your home and conservatory to allow the light to flow freely through the space and make it feel more integrated with the rest of the house. Although relatively easy to achieve, removing the doors will require Building Regulation approval to ensure both home and conservatory remain efficient. As FENSA registered installers, our team of experts can help and advise as little or as much as you need.

2. Update your conservatory glazing

Glazing technology has vastly improved over the years too. So, if your conservatory glazing is starting to show signs of deterioration – such as draughts, leaks, noticeable chips or cracks, higher energy bills and/or condensation in between the panes of glass – upgrading your conservatory with modern A-rated double glazing will instantly improve your home’s overall thermal performance.

3. Welcome the outside in with new conservatory doors

Beautiful aluminium bifold doors are one of the most fashionable conservatory door upgrades of the moment for outdated and draughty conservatories across the East Midlands. Folding back on themselves to reveal up to a 90% opening, bifolds add a luxurious feeling of space and natural light to any conservatory size or style.

If you have a small conservatory that’s low on space, practical uPVC or contemporary aluminium sliding patio doors allow you to seamlessly connect with your garden without losing essential floor space. Or if you’re simply looking for a ‘like for like’ conservatory door replacement, our modern uPVC, timber or aluminium French doors effortlessly deliver authentic sightlines coupled with excellent energy saving properties and security.

4. Convert your conservatory into an orangery

If you like the idea of an orangery without the extra cost, adding corner pillars could be the answer you’re looking for to transform and strengthen your conservatory space, whilst creating a more solid feel that seamlessly merges with the rest of the property.

This distinctive gable-fronted conservatory in Kirkby-in-Ashfield is a beautiful example of what you can achieve with Stormclad.

5. Replace your conservatory roof

Modern conservatory roof replacements are perfect for tired conservatories with old polycarbonate roofing. With a choice of glass, solid, tiled, or a bespoke rooflight/tiled combination for the best of both worlds, planning permission isn’t usually required but building regulation approval may apply. Replacing your conservatory roof will also increase your home’s kerb appeal, potentially increasing its value too.

A prime example is this stylish conservatory roof replacement case study in Gedling, Nottingham.
