Suggested by the name, our Victorian Conservatories are based on the architectural design during the reign of Queen Victoria. They do not only enhance properties, from this era but are also the choice of many for modern designed houses.
As all our products are made to measure, the choice is endless. Using our free design service our professional representatives will ensure your new conservatory will meet your requirements.
With a combination of ventilation, heating, energy efficient glass and reflective glazing a
Test Valley Victorian Conservatories will help keep your new living room, cooler in summer and warmer in winter. The right combination will allow you to be comfortable in your new room all year round.
Test Valley Windows always strive to fit the newest technology so we can offer our customers one of the best products in the market. With a conservatory it is certainly not worth fitting the cheapest, however using many years of trading, with our suppliers, you will be surprised at how competitive our prices are.
The conservatory facets are made up of windows, doors and walls. The choice is based on, your preferred design, ventilation requirements, structural parameters and size. French doors tend to be the most suited doors for the Victorian style of conservatory. Ventilation will be based on your preferred design and the aspect (south, west, north or east facing). The outer walls tend to match the finish of the property, though it is also popular to make a statement, with a different finish and therefore a clear definition between old and new. Frames are linked using structural joiners and posts, which incorporate jacking kits (where required), to ensure that the weight of the roof is transferred to the walls and foundations and not through the frames.
Internally, your new conservatory again will be finished to your requirements. Walls can be brick, plastered or panel finished. The internal frames do not have to be the same as the external with dual colours and grained finishes available in all our conservatories. There are numerous options for; skirting, window boards, eaves trim, lighting, heating, electric sockets, overhead fans, handle finishes and flooring. View building a conservatory slide show

Over a quarter of all domestic heat loss escapes through windows and doors and with spiralling energy bills this can add up to a lot of wasted money. The single most important factor, relating to the energy efficiency of a window, is the glass.
By combining SGG PLANITHERM TOTAL+ with other specialist glass products available, a multitude of high performance, multi-functional double glazing solutions can be achieved.
Solar Control Glazing
The SGG COOL-LITE family presents an extensive range of solar control solutions, designed to reduce solar heat gain, thereby reducing reliance on ventilation and air conditioning systems.
SGG BIOCLEAN can be combined with SGG PLANITHERM TOTAL+ to add effective self-cleaning properties to a double glazed unit. This product combination offers a significantly more neutral and less reflective solution compared to equivalent products currently available on the market.
SGG STADIP SILENCE is an acoustic PVB laminated glass, which noticeably reduces noise while also offering the same safety and security characteristics as laminated glass.
Increasing Solar Gain to Increase Energy Rating
Window Energy Ratings Combining SGG PLANITHERM TOTAL+ with SGG DIAMANT low-iron glass in the outer pane can improve the energy index of a given window by further increasing solar gain.
Triple Glazing is an excellent option for conservatories because the extra pane of glass reduces solar gain and increases the thermal efficiency. The inner panes are constructed using two panes of Planitherm Total+and the outer is the glass of your choice, tinted, self-cleaning, clear etc. We always toughen the centre pane to reduce the risk of stress fractures which is more common in triple glazing.
To enhance the thermal efficiency and life of our windows we fit our double glazed units with low conductivity Super Spacer. This replaces the traditional metal bar and helps prevent or eliminate condensation around the edge of the sealed unit. The spacer is manufactured from a high-quality silicon that increases the seal’s durability, is resistant to ozone, UV light and oxidation. All this increases the life expectancy of the sealed unit. A high desiccant content absorbs any moisture that is in the environment during manufacture improving the clarity of the unit.
Stained & Bevelled Glass
Add a touch of class to your conservatory with a bevelled or stained glass design to fan lights. We have over 100 standard options. If you do not see one, you would like you can design your own, and we will make it for you. Below are just a few examples.
