At Ultraframe, our Classic Roof system gives your Victorian conservatory a distinguished and classical appearance. Your Victorian conservatory can also be configured in any design. It was the Victorian era in which the nation's love of the conservatory blossomed.

This was because of the Victorians' love of foliage and exotic plants, which required a method of keeping plants alive during the cold winter months. In the 19th century, Victorian conservatory styles were created with ever-more-elaborate details to complement the period homes of the time. Victorian conservatory styles often included a Gothic shape to the windows and doors and complicated shapes in the roof, which was often steeply pitched, just like the roofs of Victorian houses.

A Victorian conservatory should blend with the property and not look like an afterthought. However old your property, though, your Victorian conservatory will have modern double-glazing, electric ventilation and underfloor heating.

Ideally, your Victorian conservatory's painted exterior will match the exterior of your property. Victorian conservatory styles often featured thin frames and glass. For manufacturers of modern Victorian conservatories, the trick is to replicate this style and still meet Building Regulations.
