With period features to suit any home, a gable fronted conservatory has gable height glazing to allow maximum light in, creating a bright and airy extension to your property. The gable design compliments both modern and period properties.
Plenty of natural light
With a stylish, high-vaulted roof that meets in the middle, the shape of a gable-fronted conservatory is similar in style to roofs typically seen on houses. Thanks to its pitched roof elevation, the gable conservatory benefits from plenty of natural light.
While gable conservatories beautifully complement homes with high ceilings due to the balance of height in the roofs, this style is also a great option for bungalows. If you’re facing height restrictions, we will supply a hipped back roof with a box gutter, so you can create a unique conservatory that fits your needs.
Here at ETC Windows, our conservatories are built with energy-efficiency in mind using the very latest uPVC products and glazing technologies.
Should you wish to ensure complete versatility and guaranteed use all year round, a Guardian warm roof is the perfect choice. Please take a look at our Guardian Warm Roof page for more details.
Conservatories are considered to be permitted developments. So you don’t need planning permission in most cases, as long as the extension meets the relevant conditions.
Here are some scenarios where you wouldn’t need planning permission when building your new conservatory :
The conservatory does not extend beyond the side wall of the house
The conservatory does not take up more than 50% of the land area around the ‘original house
The conservatory is not higher than the original roof of the home
The conservatory is not forward of the principal elevation or side elevation fronting a highway
The conservatory is a single-storey rear extension that does not exceed six metres in depth for an attached house, and eight metres in depth for a detached house
The conservatory is a side extension that is a single storey, and does not exceed four metres in height, or a width of more than half of the ‘original house’
The eaves and ridge height of a conservatory are not higher than that of the house
The eaves within two metres of the boundary do not exceed three metres in height
The extension does not include balconies, raised platforms or verandas
A roof pitch on conservatories higher than one storey must match the existing house
Custom-made to suit your needs,
a gable-front conservatory is a spacious option and is available in a range of styles
