Do I need conservatory blinds?

Saturday, December 20th, 2008

If you are talking to a blind supplier they will always tell you that you need conservatory blinds. We think this is again a budget driven decision.

Why not check out the price of blinds especially roof blinds and then compare it to upgrading to a glass roof, we think you will be surprised.

A good glass conservatory roof offers great light / solar glare reduction, will keep you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

It also gives you that great sleek modern look that will last for years. Side or frame blinds are a totally different option as these are mainly chosen for their looks and style rather than their properties.

Can I extend my current conservatory ?

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

In a word “YES” but its not going to be the easiest of jobs. To start with you need to go back to the original firm that you purchased it from and then give them the option to quote for the work. This is for a number of reasons, they will have your original drawings and will be aware of any system upgrades from the profile company that you have decided to have an upgrade from.

I would say however in most cases it is far easier to take the original one down and start again. The complexities of joining two separate roofs and making sure that everything matches and looks fresh and clean will be a tall order for most companies. If you are going to consider having an upgrade on your original conservatory the cheaper option may be to keep any existing walls that you require and take down the measurements of any door apertures that are present.
