Tiled Conservatory Roof Installation, ReadingA couple in Reading has recently been battling with an old conservatory roof that has rendered their conservatory unusable. They looked to Abbey Windows to replace the roof, choosing from an extensive range that was perfect for their home. Their choice of conservatory roof meant they were able to use their conservatory all year round. Their home in Reading has been transformed with the unique properties found in the tiled conservatory roof they opted for. Making sure their tiled conservatory roof blends in with the architecture of their home, whilst reducing their energy bills are just some of the benefits they have received upon installation. With quick and easy installation, they were able to get back to their day.
Limited-Use ConservatoryAn old polycarbonate conservatory roof meant this couple’s Reading home conservatory was left unused for the majority of the year, due to it either being too hot or too cold. With the window of opportunity for using the room slowly decreasing they decided to replace their existing roof with a tiled conservatory roof. A solution guaranteed to keep their home warm.
Conservatory Roof ReplacementOur dedicated team of experts were on hand to make sure this couple got the conservatory roof they had always dreamed of. With their dream in mind, our team were able to talk through the entire range we offer. The quote we provided was unbeatable compared to our industry competitors. It was extremely important to the couple that they would be able to use the room through the seasons, without having to worry about changing temperatures. By replacing their old roof with a tiled conservatory roof, they were able to retain their existing conservatory, replacing the roof with hassle-free installation. Our team of installers made sure it blended into the original architecture of their home, giving a seamless finish.
Tiled Conservatory Roof Installation – Thermal EfficiencyThey opted for a tiled conservatory roof that expertly combines aesthetics with practicality to produce a high-performance product. This option offers a thicker alternative to their old polycarbonate roof, giving them a more comfortable home despite the weather.

Conservatory ReadingStunning conservatory installation in Reading by Abbey Conservatories! 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 ConservatoryWe 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!
Quick InstallationThe 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.

Orangeries Installation, Reading
Abbey Windows have over 30 years of experience with installing fantastic double glazing products in homes throughout Reading and the surrounding areas. We are dedicated to working with homeowners like you to make sure that your home improvements go exactly as planned. This particular client selected Abbey Windows for a number of reasons, with our recognition as a Which? Trusted Trader impressing them from the start. We are also proud of our accredited Origin installers, who are trained by the best in the business to install market-leading products. The primary intention is this construction project was to maximise the existing available space with an extension. At the same time the owners wanted to maintain a beautiful view of the garden without suffering from the ‘greenhouse effect’ that can occur in conservatories with large panes.
Custom-Made Double GlazingBy working with our customer, we realised that an orangery would be the perfect answer to his requirements. With more of a solid structure and less focus on large window panes, orangeries can offer the perfect combination of natural light and privacy that conservatories and homes cannot. The homeowner was also certain that they wanted to connect the orangery to two separate rooms, which we were more than able to accommodate. This helped to build the illusion of a larger overall living space, and we worked to maintain the living room aesthetic that the customer preferred. During production the homeowners also decided that our aluminium bi-folding doors would be more suitable for their new product that the traditional patio doors they originally had in mind. This allowed for an even more spacious feeling, with the orangery blending seamlessly into the patio.
The Perfect Middle Ground – The VerdictThe finished product was a bespoke orangery that provides our customer with all of the features and benefits of modern engineering. The perfect summer space for entertaining guests, this new extension manages to blend the privacy of the home with the space of the conservatory. Our installation team thoroughly enjoyed working with this homeowner, who had only good things to say of us. Applauding the team’s efficiency, he noted that he ‘can’t fault any of them. The people who did the groundwork were efficient, clean and tidy…there was minimum disruption to us’. Claiming that he would work with Abbey Windows again in the future, this customer has left our business ecstatic at the quality of his new product. So get in contact with Abbey Windows yourself for orangeries that offer maximum security and incredible thermal efficiency for an affordable price.

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.
