A tired conservatory originally built approximately 50 years ago. The roof had been replaced about 15 years ago but not to a good standard.
The customer a 95yr old uses the conservatory during the summer months ‘to sit and relax in’ and wanted a timber replacement. Joinery grade Redwood finished with a white primer, and a Hardwood cill for the main structure was used with 24mm double glazed units and a triple wall 16mm polycarbonate roof finished the job off nicely. All the window frames and the cill I manufactured prior to installation.
The wooden frames to this turn of the 20th century property were in a remarkable condition, the owner had records going back to 1930 showing a schedule of maintenance, the house had been in the family since it was built! however the openers to three frames had rotted and required replacement, they were very keen not to have plastic replacements which incidentally two builders whom had been approached had stated was the ‘only way to go with this’. Here you can see the manufacture and fitting of replacement timber openers, I copied the original mouldings in order for the end product to be an exact copy of the original.
