Glazed Extensions Wickford, Essex – Glass Extensions for Houses

Glazed Extensions for Houses: This type of building is a hybrid between a conservatory and full extension. The Glass Extensions afford the best of both worlds. Whilst flooded with light to produce a wonderful ambience, it can provide protection from direct sunlight and be easier to heat and keep warm in winter.


  • Our Conservatories are available in a standard range of colour options as well as several wood effect finishes:

    • White woodgrain
    • Rosewood
    • Mahogany
    • Antique oak
    • Irish oak
    • Chartwell green
    • Green
    • Black
    • Light grey
    • Slate grey
    • Cream
    • Standard white

    Some options can be mixed inside and out and all options are available with standard white inside.

    As well as the colours above we can provide a conservatory in any standard RAL colour.

  • Our conservatories are manufactured using three materials:

    • PVC-u
    • Aluminium
    • Hardwood

    In terms of cost PVC-u is the least expensive followed by aluminium with hardwood generally being the more expensive option.

    Before deciding absolutely on which material you choose for your conservatory it is worth looking at some of the timber look-alike features available in PVC-u.

  • This question can relate to a few different aspects of the roof. A conservatory can either have a translucent roof (glass or polycarbonate) or a solid roof (tiles or another form of roofing material).

    In terms of cost polycarbonate will normally be the most cost effective with glass or some sort of tiled or other roofing material being of a similar cost.

    Apart from cost, the type of roof material you choose should depend on several factors including which way the proposed conservatory faces in relation to the sun. The proposed use of the room should also be a deciding factor. Our design consultant will be pleased to offer you more advice.

If you are considering a tiled roof extension,  why not look at our orangeries as an alternative.
