More Information on Timber Conservatories

Since they were first introduced, conservatories have been manufactured from timber, and there are many good reasons why: Timber is strong, durable, cost-effective and can easily be cut, shaped and machined to form complex shapes and decorative details. In modern times other materials such as uPVC and aluminium have been introduced for windows, doors and roofs, but the benefits of timber still stand true. Another important factor, and in fact one which is becoming increasingly prominent is that of ecology. Timber is a renewable resource – when taken from managed forests it is environmentally friendly in many ways. Timber has a low energy cost for processing compared to aluminium and uPVC which both require mining of the raw materials along with heat or chemical-based processing which both use lots of energy, releasing Carbon Dioxide (CO2) which is harmful to the environment. As trees grow, they absorb harmful CO2 from the atmosphere and store Carbon within their timber. When a tree dies and decays, the timber is broken down and this Carbon is released back into the atmosphere. If you use install a timber conservatory, you are locking away Carbon within the wood where it cannot harm the environment, which is a way of curbing global warming.

Even without taking the ecological factors into account, timber is still an excellent choice of material for building conservatories. Many aluminium and PVC systems struggle to deal with complex or unusual details, as they must be formed into predetermined profiles which are then cut to length (and sometimes angled) to make windows, doors or roof components. This means that they are well suited to “standard” designs where everything is square and consistent, but that they are harder to work with when encountering more intricate or unusual details which are present in many buildings. It is very easy to adapt and design our timber conservatory system to fit, for example, where walls are not square to each other, where there is uneven brick or stonework or where there are one-off details necessary like angled or curved windows.

Our roof system is particularly versatile and because we can cut and machine all of our components to suit a particular job, we can achieve almost any design with the minimum of fuss. One thing which is particularly hard to do neatly with aluminium and PVC systems is to construct “Victorian” style roofs, which have a “bay” front with three walls at 45° angles to each other. This design necessitates a number of roof hips and rafters which join at a common point at the end of the ridge. The only way for plastic and aluminium systems to finish this detail on the outside of a glass roof is to have a large “one size fits all” plastic dome or conical piece which sits on top of the roof at the junction of the hips and rafters. This is usually either cut around the rafter cappings or has a brush system on the underside. This detail can be very large and unsightly and serves to hide a messy structural detail. With a Victorian timber conservatory we manufacture a custom decorative “roof boss” – an angled (often octagonal) component which sits at the junction of hip, rafter and ridge and takes away any unsightly fixing details, ensuring that your conservatory is beautifully constructed and has the maximum visible glass area possible.

Another benefit of a timber conservatory is that they can be painted in any solid colour, or with a choice from our range of translucent stains which show off the natural grain of the wood. Since aluminium and uPVC systems are coloured, coated or painted in very large batches in component form before the frames etc. are manufactured, they must typically be chosen from a set range of colours, or otherwise incur substantial extra charges when requesting a one-off colour. Because our timber windows, doors and roofs are painted after all machining and building, we can easily paint our timber conservatories in RAL, BS, Dulux, Farrow & Ball, Little Greene colours and more, including painting a different colour on the inside and outside of a building. All of our timber conservatories come fully-finished as standard so that a full coating of paint is not required on site after installation. We run our own paint facilities within our workshop, giving all timber frames and components one spray coating of base coat, and two spray coatings of topcoat to ensure a smooth, even finish and exceptional durability. All timber paint used is water-based and microporous to ensure that the finish works with the timber, allowing it to breathe and preventing many of the problems experienced with oil-based gloss paints such as flaking and peeling.

A timber conservatory will also last for many years. If properly maintained, a timber conservatory will last much longer than an aluminium or uPVC building, and can actually end up costing less when viewed over a period of 15-20 years or more. Timber is the most traditional and desirable of materials for a conservatory, and will add value and beauty to your home.


Types of Hardwood Finishes For Conservatory Frames

Alongside timber, there are a variety of different materials and finished that can be used for the conservatory frame. Common wood types include Oak, Pine and Timber. Common hardwood types include:

  • Iroko
  • Iroko is a cheaper alternative to teak and has a similar grain, this is a popular choice for period themed properties.

  • Sapele
  • Sapele is an African hardwood which has a reddish tinge and is another popular choice. Sapele is used for internal applications moreso then external.

  • Idigbo
  • Idigbo is a popular hardwood with excellent durability and weather resistance. It offers a premium look and style and can be styled to look like oak.

  • Mahogany
  • Mahogany is a more expensive, upmarket option but adds a real premium touch to a conservatory frame.

  • Meranti
