Adding a conservatory to your home is an investment and choosing who will build your conservatory is a very important decision. It is a complex process and you need to feel that you select a company able to give you the very best product and service, ensuring that you will be guided through the decision-making stages with sound advice and a room built for the future.
Vale have been building conservatories and orangeries for over 30 years and now lead the market, having an enviable reputation as being the finest designers and makers of truly bespoke conservatories and orangeries. This reputation is built on our attention to detail in every aspect and sets us apart from others. This is reinforced by a dedicated team of designers and craftsmen, each an expert in their own field.
Vale continues to be one of the few remaining family owned and run businesses in the UK. We are passionate and committed to traditional design and methods of construction, whilst working with advances in technology and materials in the build. We continually invest in research & development. We have a dedicated and hardworking staff, many have been with us since the early days.
Each and every conservatory, orangery or garden room will be designed and made specifically for you. Our designers have a wealth of knowledge and understanding and are used to working with Planning and Listed Building departments together with professionals and authorities in architectural periods. We take into consideration the varied styles of architecture when working on projects overseas. The designers understand what an important decision this is and know from experience that your new room will become the focal point for you and your family all year round.
Conservatories can be simple or complex in their size and configuration and the designer working with you will not only be able to advise you on what is appropriate for your home, but also take into account your personal preferences and ideas.
Regardless of the final design, if your conservatory incorporates a glazed roof, it will be built with our signature roof system which is completely unique to Vale. This together with the walls of your conservatory will be enhanced with decorative profiles and mouldings, as we aim to develop each and every one of our buildings with a level of detail and aesthetic appreciation both internally and externally.
We remain true to the genius of the Georgian and Victorian periods – constantly studying and emulating their detail, proportion and visual correctness. Our method of producing a true inset box gutter is labour intensive but aesthetically correct and we believe worth it. We are able to produce a very fine glazing style in our windows and doors which house individual and efficient double glazed units. With a dedicated pattern workshop we can replicate existing features from your property and incorporate these into your conservatory or orangery. The diversity of our detail make our glazed buildings special, from our own paint range to our traditional floor grilles.
The best way of achieving total control over the quality of every process and procedure is to carry it all out 'in-house'.
Our offices and all aspects of production are carried out in our purpose built factory in Grantham. We believe that a close working partnership between the design team and production managers is of paramount importance.
Every production operation from essential timber treatment through to making glass units is also carried out at Vale - we have invested in factories and machinery in order to achieve this. We design and have made all extrusions used within our unique roof system and guttering. We even design our own handles and hinges.
In addition to this, we firmly believe that in utilising the very best materials to perform any one function ensuring that you have a conservatory built to last.
All conservatories are pre-installed in our factory to minimise time on site and all aspects of installation are carried out by our own expert teams, including leadwork at the house abutment.
We are unique in this - no other company does it the Vale way.
Vale is enormously proud to have been selected over all other British conservatory companies to design and manufacture an exquisite and unique conservatory collection. Fundamental to The National Trusts decision making process was the quality of product, attention to detail, how the customer is treated and guided and the company’s financial stability – ensuring the customer receives long term care and support.
Vale is honoured to be associated with an organisation architecturally in tune with our interests and to have been in partnership with The National Trust for over 8 years.
The collection includes glazed structures derived from the Georgian, Elizabethan and Victorian periods and incorporates design options that cater for buildings old and new. Vale makes a contribution to The National Trust for every National Trust conservatory sold.
We have worked closely with our clients over many years to understand their needs regarding flooring, lighting, heating, furnishings and finishing touches required to complete a new garden room.

Within our showrooms here at Vale we have a timeless selection of furniture, lighting, mirrors and accessories to achieve that final flourish of uniqueness that will suit most pockets and tastes. Visitors are always most welcome whatever phase their project is at – we can even advise on furnishings for other rooms if required.
We like to think that the care we put into building and installing our structures can be carried through to provide a stylish, atmospheric and useable room that will afford many years of pleasure, summer and winter.
As Vale enters yet another decade, our commitment to investment, development and strong financial background we ensure confidence for our clients in years to come.
We can be involved as little or as much as required – working alongside architects and contractors, or working entirely for you with a complete turn-key operation using our in-house Building Division and Interiors Department.
