We recently completed an exciting new project in Bourton-on-the-Water which saw an old Victorian conservatory model transformed into a stunning Edwardian feature with Residence Windows, solar panels and a Gable Front Warm Roofing system. This was a new kind of challenge for our team, as upgrading a pre-existing structure requires a different approach to a brand-new build. The result was a gorgeous unit which gave the customer more space, enhanced thermal efficiency and a stylish new look for his Bourton-on-the-Water home.
Do you have an old conservatory of your own that requires refurbishment? Maybe you want an extension built from scratch? Our Edwardian conservatories are available in a range of different shapes and styles. We also offer a number of bespoke features, including windows and roof styles.

Before The Project
The customer’s original build was a 4m x 3.7 m Victorian with Bradstone paving and white uPVC profiles. A set of French doors leading to the patio space and a glass roof indicated the space was well-illuminated by natural light, which is a detail we made a note to preserve. In order to square off the corners in the manner the customer wanted, we recognised the patio space would need a refurbishment to ensure it was well-fitted alongside the new Edwardian model.
Access to the build area was difficult – there was no direct access to the rear of the property. As always, we took care to make sure we weren’t leaving a mess all over the property, routinely checking after ourselves. We also identified a need to replace the flooring and add new socket casings to the Edwardian conservatory’s interior.
The Final Installation
The process of squaring off the corners of the Victorian conservatory to suit an Edwardian style was carried out quickly and safely, and our expert team were able to get the conservatory base installed with excellent efficiency. The double glazing features ensured natural light remained unobstructed inside the home whilst energy efficiency was boosted. In addition to the solar panels, this made the Edwardian conservatory a sustainable feature for the Bourton-on-the-Water property.
The customer also needed to replace his windows and was interested in the exceptional Residence Collection. This range of windows offers fantastic thermal insulation to trap the warmth inside the home and comes in a selection of styles and colourways. The customer originally wanted white profiles; however, we believed Anthracite Grey suited his property better after running the options through a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) programme. After showing this to the customer, he agreed and opted for Anthracite Grey windows.
