Climax can carry out the whole project form planning permission if required to the finished tiled floor, electrics either under floor heating (Warmup) sockets or lighting, the work will be carried out to part "P" of building regulations.
With conservatories becoming ever bigger and more complicated climax have chosen to use The Quantal aluminium conservatory roof system which provides superb aesthetic appeal and offers an engineered solution to complex roof designs. All styles of conservatories are catered for from a standard lean-to to orangeries, atriums, and glasshouses.
Quantal's dedicated team of engineers have developed an aluminium roof system that offers innovations and technical advances beyond the scope of other roof systems. The conservatory roof system offers a choice of forged aluminium cresting and decorative finials, all powder coated with a high gloss polyester coat, that won't fade, crack or warp - whatever the British weather throws at them.
Climax have used Quantal's Natural look roof in conjunction with a bespoke timber conservatory, the outside remains standard aluminium with all the internal finished with a timber veneer stained to match the timber side frames, this ensures peace of mind about future costly maintenance of the roof.
Natural can be stained, varnished or painted just like the interior of an ordinary all timber roof so you can ensure it perfectly matches timber window frames.
Construction and design
All conservatories are built to comply with current building regulations, and have latest standards of quality insulation incorporated at floor level, and where applicable, the roof void to provide maximum thermal efficiency.
Roofs can have conventional eaves, or be upgraded to box gutter eaves incorporating external detailing such as decorative soffits and fascias.
PVCu structures - use the ultimate in high quality materials and fittings (as in our window range). All window opening styles, colours, and door designs may be incorporated. (See our PVCu windows and doors pages)
Aluminium structures - designed to meet individual requirements. Internal design based on timber webs with cut-outs to allow for cable access and plumbing etc. enabling a neat finish to be achieved with minimal labour time/costs.
Coloured framework is available in subdued tones or bright, bold colours and can effectively enhance the look of both period properties and contemporary homes alike. In fact, frames and components can be in any RAL or BS shade to provide exactly the required appearance, and there is literally an infinite choice of colours across our entire range of conservatories. Colour is baked on at 60° centigrade and create exceptionally hard wearing surfaces which retain their good looks and colour for many years.
Alternative structures - besides aluminium and PVCu conservatories with glass or solid roofs, Climax will also arrange and co-ordinate construction with specialists using other materials such as timber and oak frames with a Sarnafil, tiled, or slated roof.

A conservatory can be a great addition to your home, it will add space and create a bright airy room. The conservatory needs to be the right design and be constructed correctly to not only achieve space and light, but also enhance the look of your property. For example, if the kitchen is at the back of the house, a conservatory that doubles up as a dining room or a breakfast room is ideal to be positioned off the kitchen area. If your living room faces the garden, a sun lounge could easily be added to enhance the use of the garden and get more light into your living area.
Climax will help you design the perfect complimentary conservatory for your property. We will help with the shape of the conservatory, colour and the materials the conservatory will be made of, PVCu or aluminium there are a lot of colours and finishes available now. PVCu can even be made to look like wood and aluminium can be any RAL colour so there is really no reason to choose the wrong finish for your conservatory.
Oak Frame Rooms
Working closely in partnership with joineries and local craftsmen, Climax create and build individually designed Oak and timber frame garden rooms, summer houses and conservatories. Combining the technology of energy rated windows and doors, together with a Sarnafil insulated roof, and an efficient underfloor heating system means you can enjoy the traditional beauty of a natural wood construction all year round without the old fashioned drawbacks of cold draughts or condensation problems.
Climax offers a complete range of double glazed sealed window units, and we are happy to discuss all the options available before arriving at the final specification to meet your personal needs.
Self Cleaning Glass
Available in neutral, clear, green or blue. Ideal for conservatories as some can be hard to reach for cleaning. A special coating allows the sun to break down grime, which is then washed away by rain.
Low E Glass
Available in clear or blue, Low E glass, is ideal for North facing conservatories where minimising heat loss in the winter is a priority.
Solar Control Glass
Available in clear or blue. Ideal for South facing conservatories to reduce the amount of solar gain on hot days whilst minimising heat loss in the winter.
Argon Gas filled Sealed Units
Argon gas fills the space between the two panes of glass that make up the sealed unit. Insulation is improved by a massive 20%.
A complete suite of colours from Bronze, Green, Clear, and Neutral.
Obscure glass will increase levels of privacy where conservatories may be overlooked.
Satin Double Glazed Sealed Units (DGSU's)
One of the latest developments is a satin/clear double glazed sealed unit. Where an element of privacy is needed, satin glass either for part or the entire roof, can now be specified.
All sealed units used in our conservatories, and roofs, are made up from 4mm,or 6mm, toughened, or 6.4mm laminated. These units, are made up to 24mm thick, in configurations of 4.16.4, or 6.12.6, depending on the sizes of your roof.
