Vale Garden Houses

In Georgian and Victorian times glass houses were very popular and mainly used as garden rooms. Today, however, glass extensions fulfill a much wider variety of uses from sitting rooms, kitchen extensions and dining areas.

Conservatories can be built to suit any period of building and most can create a beautiful addition if interpreted with appropriate design detail and proportions. It is of primary importance that the design of a conservatory is sympathetic to the existing property in terms of architectural detailing and for many properties, finding some existing detail on a house and mirroring this within the conservatory can make the new addition look as if it has always been there giving it a timeless quality. Sourcing matching materials for the base work will help this.

Most of Vale's clients prefer a fully glazed structure. However, for some the balance of a solid insulated roof and glazed sides will better meet their requirements. The feeling of light and space is still achieved in these rooms. Even the combination of a part-glazed and part-leaded roof can create the desired effect.

As an alternative to a fully glazed or lead roof, Vale have occasionally incorporated the use of a traditional roofing slate or tile into their structures. These are built in the traditional manner, finished with a roofing slate or tile to complement the house.
