The Victorian conservatory is the style that looks a little like a 50pence piece and is both attractive and is probably one of the most popular designs. It has a 3 or 5-facet design and allows a choice of the positioning of door options.
Our Victorian roof is ideal both for period properties and new builds. The Victorian style conservatory with a glazed or tiled roof can make such a difference to the aesthetic appearance of your home offering you a room from which you can view your garden and also appear as an extension of your house as you can choose a matching tile colour to your house roof.
The classic Edwardian conservatory roof design is one of timeless elegance and has a traditional appearance. The style allows a significant amount of floor space and is one of the major attractions of an Edwardian conservatory and it also helps you to maximise the space below with its spacious and high ceiling.
The Lean-To conservatory roof is perfect for properties that have restricted space under the eaves, as the area may be too small or awkward to accommodate a conservatory. Since the angle of a Lean-To conservatory roof can vary – going as low as 2.5 degrees to fit under a bungalow roof or a higher pitch can be used on a terraced housing – it is ideal for many different types of properties with limited space.
A Gable roof complements any home with its high vaulted roof that provides a bright and airy atmosphere. Additionally, more windows can be added to a Gable roof to make the most of the light and spacious roof area. Inspired by the roof most commonly used in your average property, a Gable conservatory roof gives the appearance that the extension is an integral part of the home. The installation of a new conservatory can also add value to your property, as the conservatory will look more like part of the home rather than an afterthought.
The Gable front can come in various designs, from a large plain triangular front with great light and visibility, to the more decorative with vertical mullions or even a sunburst design as shown in our example.
Lots of people have bespoke combination style conservatories. These can be tailored to your requirements and can help maximise your living space, whilst making your conservatory appear as an integral part of your home. A Lean-to can be combined with a Victorian which is classed as a P-shape. Two Lean-tos and a Gable in the middle are referred to as a T-shape. A Lean–to and an Edwardian is called L-shape.
Whatever is best for you can look fabulous with the right roof. See our Roof options for some ideas. So whatever your choice if you’re looking for a conservatory roof that suits your individual needs and think a combination roof may be for you, then why not get in touch with us here at Window Outlet, where we can provide a bespoke solution for any home.
Usually a double-hipped roof is required when the conservatory width is quite extensive, and/or there are height restrictions on the house wall (such as low windows or pipework). Since the house aspect of the roof has sloped downward, box gutters are almost always used on double-hipped conservatory, and due to their relatively low height here, double-hipped are ideally suited for Bungalows, as well as the more traditional house styles.
