Many people think that timber is a poor choice of material because it has a shorter lifespan than uPVC or aluminium. However, a well-cared for wooden conservatory can last just as long, if not longer than alternative materials. Our paint finishes protect your conservatory and help it remain looking beautiful for years to come. We also have a 30 year guarantee against rot and fungus.
All of our wooden conservatories are made from specifically selected, seasoned wood. Timber has natural properties which help it withstand the elements and in the factory we apply a ‘colour harmonising’ finish containing a preservative. We then apply a micro-porous protective stain or paint finish. However, timber is a natural material so requires regular attention to keep them looking good. You should carry out cleaning regularly, at least twice a year. The factory applied coating systems will give many years of life between repainting cycles and simple steps, such as wiping down the product to remove dirt and insects will help to extend the decorative finish.
We use carefully selected Siberian Larch from sustainable forests. The cold Siberian climate results in a small growth each year which is shown in the timber’s tight grain pattern and giving it excellent durability and stability. All of the timber we use is also FSC certified.
Timber is considered by many to be the most visually pleasing materials. It’s natural beauty suits both traditional and modern properties. For many homes, particularly in conservation areas, a wooden conservatory is the perfect choice. They also add an authentic, traditional look and are a great choice for period properties.
Yes, timber actually offers better insulation than both upvc and aluminium, which keeps your home warmer but also means you have to use less energy. The production of wood also uses less energy than non-natural alternatives such as upvc and aluminium. All of our timber is also sustainably sourced.
