Hardwood Conservatories

As well as repairing timber conservatories, if your conservatory is beyond repair Mark George Conservatories are also able to provide quotations for the supply and installation of new replacement bespoke hardwood conservatories.

We will either match the new conservatory to your existing design or create a completely new conservatory design for you, taking care to complement the architecture and setting of your house but still following the footprint of your existing base.

Polycarbonate Roofs

We are able to upgrade polycarbonate roofs to double glazed roofs on timber conservatories providing they are in good order.

When we replace your polycarbonate roof with a double glazed glass roof, your conservatory will no longer be cold, grey and noisy in the rain. It will become a warm and tranquil space, your favourite room in the house that you can use all the year round.

New Conservatories

Despite specialising in the repair of timber conservatories, should we find that your conservatory is beyond economical repair we can build you a new bespoke hardwood replacement. We can either match the new conservatory to your existing design or if you prefer, we can create a completely new individual conservatory design for you, taking care to complement the architecture and setting of your house but still following the footprint of your existing base so avoiding the need of a builder.

Replacement Conservatory roofs

If your conservatory timbers are generally in good order but the glass roof is looking shabby with the room not warm enough to use in the winter, then why not replace your conservatory roof? Upgrading your roof glass will enhance your conservatory as a living space by making it warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Your glass units may have misted up which occurs when the seals of the double glazed units fail. Advances in both glass sealants and glass technology means that we can offer superior quality products today and a new replacement conservatory roof can totally transform your conservatory and enhance your living space.


Orangeries are a classic, timeless design and were originally built to house exotic plants and fruit trees. They are a more substantial extension than your average conservatory and have become more popular again in recent years. Traditionally they are designed with more brick or stone work, columns and moulding details and incorporate a Roof Lantern instead of a fully glazed roof.

Orangeries are featuring open plan kitchen and living areas nowadays and with the inclusion of bi-folding doors, are an excellent addition to any home to bring the outside in.

Roof Lanterns

A Roof Lantern or Glass Roof can be a stunning architectural feature to add light and height to a dark room in the house, making it feel more airy and spacious. Not only are they elegant but these glazed roofs can also offer a cost effective solution for transforming a room and defining areas within open plan living spaces.

Low voltage downlighters can be added to create a modern feel to what is considered to be quite a traditional structure.

We can design a bespoke Roof Lantern to suit your individual needs, incorporating electric roof ventilation as required.

Roof Ventilators

Roof Ventilators are an essential component of a conservatory roof allowing you to maintain an ambient temperature in your conservatory and a gentle air flow, without the need to always open windows and doors. These opening skylights can be set at various levels either manually by means of a telescopic winder and pole, or electrically at the press of a switch. We are also able to provide a discreet stylish Climate Control Panel which is thermostatically controlled with a rain sensor and also with manual override, so that you have complete control of the temperature in your conservatory.

Roof vents can be a weak point in a conservatory roof and cause leaks, a common problem we come across in our business. We find many conservatory companies either use off the shelf models which are unsuitable for timber conservatories or their own vent which may be a poor design. We have developed our own bespoke roof ventilator design which works faultlessly.

Box Gutter & Valley Repairs

We often come across box gutters and valleys on conservatories which have been incorrectly formed or not catered for at all. If lead lined, the lead in a box gutter or valley expands and contracts with heat over time and if not fitted correctly this will lead to stress cracks forming in the lead and an entry point through which water will penetrate resulting in a leaky conservatory. We can deal with this for you by removing the roof glass that falls into the gutter and/or valleys, re-forming and re-lining them appropriately and then re-fitting the roof glass.

Bi-folding doors

Sliding folding doors are a great way of modernising your conservatory and adding flexibility and individuality to your living space. They are perfect on hot sunny days or when entertaining, just fold the doors right back and maximise your living area, bringing the outside in. Our bi-folding doors are custom built to integrate perfectly with your existing conservatory design. The doors are also fitted with a high quality sliding door system so that the doors glide beautifully without a judder.
