Making glazing home improvements outside the home is clearly safer than inside during this pandemic, but it is still worth ensuring that the company you employ operate safely and are following the Government guidance.
The UK is enjoying (so far) a summer of fine weather and after months of restriction and now with the easing of the lockdown it’s tempting to spend more time outdoors, with conservatories, bi-folding doors, balconies, porches and garden rooms you can enjoy the best of both the indoor and outdoor lifestyle.
A new conservatory, orangery or garden room can also give you the essential additional space you might need if working from home or if you want to create good recreational or entertainments space.
No matter what home improvement you make outdoors, please ensure you use the simple Stay Safe checklist (below) provided by the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) the glazing industry’s main trade body.
According to MyGlazing.com’s online research, there appears to be a significant increase this year with 28% more homeowners searching online for conservatories, orangeries and garden (summer) houses.
If you are considering a new conservatory or similar, it is worth checking out the new Consumer Guide to Conservatories produced by the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF). It’s free to download and includes expert independent advice on practical issues such as the best use of living space, foundations, materials selection and types of structures. In addition, there is also a list of general designs and styles of conservatories and orangeries and roof types.
It’s a good time to improve your home by maximising the use of your outdoor space and also adding more to the value of your property.
