MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE DECIDING FOR THEMSELVES THAT THEY WANT A CONSERVATORY, AND TIMBER IS THE WAY TO GO.
Not everyone can have the talent, success, or bank balance of celebrities like Michael Caine, Barbra Streisand, and Sting. But there’s no reason they can’t have a similar conservatory.
Timber-framed conservatories aren’t just popular with the rich and famous: they add an air of rustic refinement to any property, and open it pleasantly to natural lighting. That’s why more than 200,000 households apply for planning permission for a conservatory every year. These homeowners are making the right move: research has found that the average home is worth five percent more after the addition of a conservatory, and that they yield (on average) a 108 percent return on investment.
There is a clear case to be made for timber-framed conservatories, and you can rest assured that, if you’re commissioned to construct one, Quercus can supply high quality timber quickly, easily, and cost effectively.
However, you might not even have to make a sales pitch to your customers – more and more people are deciding for themselves that they want a conservatory, and timber is the way to go.
By 2020, the UK glazing and home improvement market is expected to be worth £349 million, according to Palmer market research. Currently, timber is used throughout 10 percent of it – but in just over two years, that will have risen to 19 percent, much of it in front doors and conservatories. UK trends are moving towards traditional materials and low carbon footprints – that’s great news for timber, and for those who use it.
