Why Choose a Timber Framed Conservatory

Why Choose a Timber Framed Conservatory?

There are many considerations to make when choosing a conservatory for your home, with materials among the most important factors to think about.

Though the majority of modern conservatories are manufactured using plastics such as uPVC, there is a growing call for wood-based installations.

Here we explain some of the key advantages of choosing a timber framed conservatory, making it an increasingly popular option for homeowners.



There are a vast range of timber types suitable for framing conservatories, offering plenty of different colours and styles to choose from. Popular tones such as oak and sapele hardwood can be matched with a range of colours and decorative schemes, offering a natural and luxurious look both inside and outside of the home.


When properly looked after, timber products can last for a lifetime, but only a small amount of care is needed. Simple treatments to protect against sun exposure and warping are only required about twice a year, whilst protecting timber structures against issues such as damp can be achieved through routine maintenance.


Though timber is available in a range of beautiful shades, it is also perfect for treatments such as painting and staining. This means that wooden conservatory structures can be presented with an endless range of colours and tones, offering an even greater scope of customisation for homeowners and interior designers planning a new installation.


Another key advantage of using timber for creating conservatory framing is that it offers an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic installations. For those who are conscious about sustainability, using wooden building products helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote the use of non-toxic materials and support re-forestation projects.

Because they offer an attractive and contemporary feature to any home, timber framed conservatories are likely to increase the value of your home at market. This makes them an excellent long-term investment in your property if you ever choose to sell.
