Wooden Conservatories vs uPVC Conservatories
At Country Hardwood, we offer only high-quality, hardwood and timber, wooden conservatories. This is because wooden conservatories are generally regarded as a more luxurious option to uPVC.
But what should you consider when choosing between uPVC and wooden conservatories? Here are 5 questions you may want to ask yourself before making your decision.
1. What do I like?
We’ll start with the simplest question! What material would you prefer your conservatory to be constructed from? Take a look at the gallery of wooden conservatories on the Country Hardwood website, have a look at uPVC and wooden conservatories in other stores and, of course, take a look at other properties.
2. What is my budget?
Wooden conservatories, particularly hardwood conservatories, do tend to be more expensive than uPVC options. This is because hardwood and wooden conservatories are considered a more luxurious and traditional option to uPVC.
3. What type of conservatory would suit your property best?
Do you have a modern property or a more historic home? While uPVC works well with modern buildings, traditional properties are much more suited to hardwood or wooden conservatories. That said, wooden conservatories are well-matched to modern properties too.
4. Do you want to opt for an environmentally friendly option?
Wood is more environmentally friendly than uPVC. What’s more, Country Hardwood use high-quality natural West African hardwoods from renewable sources. Our hardwoods are FSC-sourced, which means our wooden conservatories are an environmentally-friendly, and sustainable, choice.
5. What are your views on maintenance?
In general, uPVC conservatories will require slightly less maintenance than wooden conservatories. That said, the wooden conservatories from Country Hardwood are made with high-quality, durable wood that will last for years when properly maintained. The level of maintenance required is fairly basic and Country Hardwood can provide you with all the information you require on maintaining your wooden conservatory.
