What is a glazed extension?

Many homeowners today see modern conservatories as a form of extension, and that's what we offer here at Renaissance Conservatories, in addition to rooms like orangeries. We allow you to make your extension your very own with a range of compatible windows and doors, so your new extension blends in with your main property in exactly the way you want it to.

How much glass can I have in an extension?

The thought may have never crossed your mind, but it’s actually important to know there’s a limit to the amount of glass you can have as part of an extension. Part L of the Building Regulations dictates that the total area of the openings or glazed elements of an extension should take up no more space than 25% of the extension’s floor area. Extensions that exceed this ratio are known as an ‘over-glazed extension’ and when this happens they can be rejected or building control may request justification for the over-glazing. There are many ways to get an over-glazed extension accepted.

What is the difference between an extension and a conservatory?

Conventionally, an extension is viewed as added floor space to a home whilst a conservatory is seen as a completely separate room that has limited uses. Over time, however, the lines have begun to blur and people may see this comparison as outdated as conservatory design has improved so much that they can be seen as a great way to add value and space to your home.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Have a read of some of our glowing customer reviews

Renaissance replaced our old timber framed conservatory with a new pvc one, which incorporated a solid roof with velux windows. Ben ensured that the work was well project managed (including electricians and plasterers) and delivered in a timely manner. We are really pleased with the quality of the work and we now have a year round, fully useable family space.

Just spending some time in the conservatory reading and wanted you to know how wonderful it is. It’s my little retreat in a sometimes noisy house! Thanks again for doing such a good job.

I would like to thank you for the work carried out on my conservatory roof replacement. Not only does it look great, but it went very smoothly, no hassle. The workers were efficient, polite and very accommodating. Would recommend.
