According to property experts the best way to increase the value of your home would be add an additional room. For many though the addition of an extension can be expensive and coupled along with planning permission and building regulations it can be a long drawn out process. However with the use of thermally efficient solar control glazing in all Walkers conservatories and local permitted development rules you will be able to add an extension by means of a conservatory or orangery by Walkers Windows at up to ½ the price of a traditional extension and most of the time have it installed within 2 to 3 weeks. So with this in mind how would you use your conservatory?
