Our team at Abbey have a wealth of experience in designing and constructing beautiful conservatories for local homeowners and businesses like you. Thanks to the solar control glass roofs incorporated into our conservatories from Ultraframe, you can enjoy this extra living space throughout the year. Take your pick from our beautiful variety of styles.
An Orangery is designed using a combination of conservatories and extensions. Just like a conservatory you will benefit from increased light and plenty of windows, whilst increasing privacy levels by using larger brick sections. With a lantern roof you can enjoy a light and bright orangery throughout the year.
A Victorian conservatory offers your home traditional aesthetics whilst the curved bay design affords you superb outwards views of your garden. Victorian conservatories provide a sophisticated extension to your Reading home that can contain a choice of 3 or 5 facets to suit the space available. Add a finishing touch with our beautiful finials.
An Edwardian conservatory provides a lovely square or rectangular design that allows you to make the most of your floor space. Let plenty of natural sunlight and fresh air enter your new conservatory and enjoy your additional space for 12 months of the year. Great for a dining room, living room or play room.
A lean-to conservatory is a highly popular option and can be suited to a variety of property styles. Arguably the most cost effective conservatory, these lean-to conservatories are perfect if you have limited space available. Why not consider fitting
a whole length of one wall with bi-fold doors for a fantastic entertainment space.
A gable-end conservatory, also known as a gable conservatory or pavilion conservatory, creates a sense of grandeur to your home with the high-angled roof. This is a superb way of maximizing light and creating a welcoming ambiance for family and friends. You could include a rising sun detail for a charming design full of character.
A P-shaped conservatory is a form of bespoke conservatory design that is tailor made to fit into an awkward garden space. If you require a multi-functional conservatory then P-shaped is a great option. Combine two different conservatory styles such as a Victorian conservatory for your dining room and a lean-to section for the perfect lounge.
Bespoke Conservatories are tailor made to perfectly complement your Reading home. Our talented team will take and enhance your ideas using our specialised design software to bring them to life. We can also refurbish and restore existing conservatories or provide an upgrade service; call us now to enquire about this service.

A beautiful conservatory installation in Tilehurst, Reading
One of our loyal customers had recently bought a property which had an old greenhouse conservatory at the rear. She wished to dismantle the old one and build a beautiful new one in its place, with 21st century security values and excellent energy-efficiency.
We knew our uPVC Conservatories were just the ticket. She popped into our showroom to take a look and thought our range was excellent!
The builders had dismantled the old conservatory ready for our survey. Our customer was originally looking at a lean-to conservatory but we advised that a gable-end conservatory would give the client more space and a better view over their land.
This was a 3m x 2m base but with the gable-end it feels a lot larger. The wall structure was manufactured using full height Liniar frames with opening sashes, with an Ultraframe aluminium roof. An excellent combination!
It has blue solar glass in the roof to help with solar reflection and this also helps control the temperatures inside the conservatory.
Stunning Colour Range
Our conservatories are available in a wide range of colours and finishes, and our Reading customer opted for a dark grey finish to finished in dark grey to contrast with the white render.
The result is a contemporary conservatory with all the charm of a classic extension – our customer was left extremely happy with the aesthetic.

Conservatory & Porch Installation Reading
Stunning Conservatory and Porch Installation in Reading by Abbey Conservatories!
With a young family our customers ideally wanted a larger living space for their growing family without the inconvenience and cost of moving.
We knew a conservatory was the right choice for them, and recommended they pop into our local showroom to view our uPVC conservatories range!
To complement the living space for all year round use, our customer decided on the Prefix living room detail with lighting. This not only creates an aesthetically pleasing feel that has controllable lighting for every occasion. Unlike normal conservatories with strip lighting, it also takes the conservatory away from a traditional look of a full glass roof, to something much more permanent and welcoming/comforting.
The uPVC window and door frames are Liniar Anthracite Grey on White with A Rated Glass.
This conservatory was designed to create more space for our Reading customers.
The decision was made to knock through the existing kitchen and dining room to create an open-plan space that allowed for better lighting and functionality.
By installing a 3 leaf set of Origin Aluminium Bi-Fold Doors between the new conservatory and the kitchen / dining room, our customers have free-flowing flowing floor space in their Reading property. The family can close themselves away when they want to have a little quiet time, or at other times create an amazing family room and play area going straight onto the garden for the children to enjoy.
Beautiful uPVC Porch
At the front of the property our clients Porch & front door was a little tired and they wished to improve their security.
We reduced the brickwork down to DPC level and replaced them with full height Liniar frames with A Rated Glass and Insulated reinforced uPVC panels, with a turquoise pastel Rocal Endurance Etna Spring composite front door.
Our composite doors are incredibly secure, with impressive locking systems that are accredited by Secured by Design.
We further removed and replaced with Free Foam fascia, soffit and guttering.

We were approached by our Reading customers who had an old aluminium conservatory with a polycarbonate roof.
The old conservatory was cold in the winter, hot in the summer and noisy when it rained. Our customers were looking for an affordable alternative that would keep its temperature in colder months but wouldn’t become hot like a greenhouse in summer time.
New uPVC Conservatory
We suggested that they view our beautiful uPVC conservatories, and they were instantly impressed.
Our new energy efficient uPVC conservatory, with its state of the art glass coatings, now retains heat in the winter and reflects heat in the summer.
This means that the conservatory is a useable part of the house all year round!
The new conservatory went up without a hitch. Our Reading customers opted for a lean-to conservatory, which is the most competitively priced conservatory in our range.
They chose a classic ‘white’ for the finish, with a stunning glass roof to add a classic aesthetic and improve noise insulation.

Orangery Installation in Caversham, Reading
Stunning Orangery Designed For Reading Family By The Abbey Windows Double Glazing Team.
Abbey Windows have recently completed an Orangery installation with Origin Bi-Fold Doors for a family in Reading and the results are spectacular.
Our customers wanted to create more space towards the back of their property and to open up their living area. They also wanted to make full use of their garden in the summer months.
We guided the family through our Orangery designs and came up with the perfect solution for their Caversham home.
What Is an Orangery?
Orangeries are the grand 17th century predecessors to the modern conservatory and were typically expressions of wealth and status for the elite (those who could afford to keep citrus trees).
The primary difference between an Orangery and Conservatory is that an orangeries are primarily made up of brick in keeping with the brickwork of the house or building it is built onto. Providing better insulation from the elements.
Today, Orangeries exude the same air of luxury and elegance as their stately ancestors. They make for exceptional sunrooms for relaxing or entertaining guests. Orangeries are a truly valuable addition to your Reading home.
We created the ideal Orangery to complement the Caversham home. A contemporary design allowing for the maximum amount of light to enter the home whilst still maintaining privacy.
Orangery with Aluminum Bi-Fold Doors
Origin’s Aluminium Bi-Fold Doors open out onto the garden patio giving the family complete versatility. These revolutionary aluminium doors break down the barrier between home and garden inviting the outdoors into their Reading property.
When the aluminium bi-folding doors are open, the body of the Orangery leads seamlessly out onto the garden bringing fresh air, space and light into the living space. When closed, the aluminium bi-fold doors offer the highest security with a Yale Shootbolt locking system, an anti-lift catch and tamper-proof aluminium hinges.
Our aluminium bi fold doors also boast a 20-year manufacturer’s guarantee directly with Origin!
Fitting the Orangery Roof
We designed a bespoke glass roof for the Orangery which sits flawlessly against the L-shaped structure of the Reading home. The family opted for a flat roof around the perimeter of the Orangery in keeping with the lines of the house.
The Orangery Roof was created using a high-quality, structural grade aluminium profile.
We then capped and cladded the Orangery with low maintenance thermal uPVC capping board fascias and claddings. The ideal finishing for a maintenance free Orangery.
Orangeries: Glass Extensions for your Home
Orangery extensions are becoming ever more popular and it’s no wonder. There are endless benefits to Orangeries. They are visually striking yet entirely practical and energy efficient. Beautiful glass rooms that you can use all year round!
This happy family in Reading finds that in the summer, it’s great to open up their new Origin Bi-Fold Doors and use the garden as an extra addition to the living space. Whereas, in the winter, it becomes a homely and cosy den.
This new room adds a further dimension to their Reading property and provides a seamless link between their home and the garden.

uPVC Conservatory Whitley, Reading
uPVC Conservatory Replacement Carried Out In Reading By The Abbey Windows Team
A couple in Reading have recently chosen a stunning uPVC Conservatory upgrade for their Reading Home. Their old, flat-roofed leaking conservatory has been skilfully replaced by our expert conservatory installation team to a sophisticated Gable End Conservatory.
This stylish and charming style of uPVC Conservatory has completely rejuvenated their Whitley home whilst maintaining the authentic charm of their character property.
The couple’s flat-roofed uPVC conservatory had been in place for over twenty-five years, but a leaking roof and a frame which let in draughts meant the outdated structure could no longer be the hub of their Reading home.
With seven grandchildren, the couple were now looking for a room with functionality. A space that could be used throughout the seasons, whatever the weather.
Bespoke Conservatory Refurbishment
Our double glazing team talked through the exciting conservatory styles we have to offer including our bespoke conservatory styles. It was important to the couple that we keep to a similar footprint to the original uPVC Conservatory. Together we began to design the couple’s ideal conservatory, in keeping with the look and feel of their Reading home.
A brand new conservatory plan was drawn up with a number of amendments to enhance the look of the Reading home. The new plans would bring the uPVC Conservatory up to date, whilst retaining the lines of the house.
Gable Ended Conservatory
The couple opted for a stunning Gable End Conservatory; a modern style of uPVC Conservatory offering maximum space and height within the room. The double glazed front window panel of this cleverly designed uPVC Conservatory remains upright rather than sloping back towards the centre. This, coupled with the new high-angled double glazed roof, maximises light and creates a feeling of great height within the uPVC Conservatory. Check out the before and after photographs below.
The conservatory roof replacement will further improve the functionality of the new uPVC Conservatory in Reading. We wished to give the couple climate control with high performance glass. The old, leaking roof was replaced with an UltraFrame double glazed roof, providing the couple with a uPVC Conservatory they can use all year round. No longer will this family room be hot in summer and cold in winter, with the innovative four-season double glazing.
uPVC French Doors Fitted on New uPVC Conservatory
The Abbey Conservatory installation team lastly fitted a pair of stylish uPVC French Doors from Liniar into the new uPVC Conservatory. An elegant addition allowing easy access to the garden on hot summer days.
We built practical hardware into the uPVC Conservatory design allowing the new uPVC French Doors to be easily latched back on a windy day.
Further security features were included with a Yale Lockmaster multipoint lock incorporated into the uPVC French Doors, the ultimate shield against would-be intruders.
Reading Conservatory Replacement – The Verdict
The couple worked with Abbey in a dynamic fashion, getting involved with all details to find a solution which would suit both their Whitley home and their living style.
The verdict, a success! The couple can enjoy their new uPVC Conservatory to the full, all year round.
The couple are particularly pleased in the size and feeling of spaciousness in the new conservatory. Having previously had pinoleum blinds on the uPVC Windows, the couple have delayed their decision to put new conservatory blinds in. Simply appreciating the bright, airy feel of their new living space.
The conservatory is now used as a family room and is certainly the new heart of their Reading home.
