Modern conservatories, particularly those manufactured in the North of Scotland, are a far cry from the glorified greenhouses which used to pass for conservatories in the past.
Constructed out of the same windows and doors used elsewhere in a modern home and with a strong, well insulated roof, they are now a cost effective home extension. An extension which may be used all year round.
With their large expanse of glass they offer more than a conventional extension in that they bring the home and its garden closer together. And, irrespective of what the weather is doing, allow you to enjoy your garden so much more.
The Highlands can offer beautiful clear skies and sunny days at any time of the year but, rarely without at least a cooling breeze. A conservatory is the ultimate wind-break. Allowing you to relax and soak up the sun’s warmth, even if its blowing a gale outside. It will also act as a heat store, which may reduce your heating costs for the rest of the house.
These days you also get a whole lot more choice. A choice of style – Lean-to, Edwardian, Regency, Georgian or Victorian. A choice of design – Dwarf Wall, Feature Panels or Full Height Glass. A choice of materials – engineered pine or hardwood, pre-finished in any colour, or uPVC, in white, golden oak or rosewood woodgrain effect and a range of colour finishes. And, of course, a choice of size – each conservatory is made-to-measure, to suit your individual circumstances.
Norscot conservatories are not limited to home extensions either. They may be designed as a stand alone garden building, to be used as a sun house, play room, office or swimming pool enclosure. They may also be used on commercial properties, as an entrance foyer, atrium, showroom, restaurant and so on.
