Garage Conversions

Garages are incredibly versatile spaces providing your family with a wide range of fun and exciting opportunities to have the home of your dreams.


Porches

Half_brick_and_UPVC_Gable_front_with_leaded_glassA porch is a cost effective and enjoyable way to add light and space to your home. And - because most porches are exempt from mainstream Building Regulations and Planning permissions - they can be bought and installed with the minimum of fuss.

 

 

 

Every home has its own character and style, so all our porches are individually designed and made to measure, which means you can create the perfect stylish entrance for your home. You'll benefit from the extra space inside your home whilst keeping the weather out.

 

 

 

Double_hip_with_leaded_glassWhatever your home needs Mercury Home Improvements take care of everything, from base building and brickwork through to fitting the door, windows, decorative panels and roof. We’ll even match your existing brickwork and finish things off with UPVC guttering, drainpipes, internal plastering and any electrical work required. Manufactured to the highest standards using UPVC, which is wipe-clean and never needs repainting?

 

 

 

Planning permission may be required, don’t worry, as all double glazing and conservatory companies will automatically apply for this should it be required.Half_brick_UPVC_gable_front

 

Listed below are the conditions that will attract planning permission. Porches of size (measured externally) of more than 3 square meters.

 

Porches higher than 3 meters above ground level. Porches less than 2 meters away from the boundary of a house or highway which includes all public roads, footpaths, bridle ways, byways, listed buildings and conservation areas.

 

So now you know what the regulations are, and by the way, building regulations are also a requirement, but don’t worry it just means that the porch must be built to comply with current regulations which are good for you as the job will be inspected by a building control officer to ensure it being built correctly.

Patios & Decking

 

Make your garden a living room

 

 

Timber decking is an increasingly fashionable addition to the garden these days, and that is not surprising given the benefits. It is a relatively inexpensive way to create a patio area and takes a very short time to construct, requiring little maintenance once it is completedBespoke_Decking_Constructed_by_Mercury_home_improvements

 

 

Look out into your garden. Is your lawn overgrown? Is your patio worn and uneven, with weeds growing up between the stones? Don't you wish you had somewhere to sit and relax on a warm summer evening? Let Mercury Home Improvements realise the potential of your garden by installing a beautiful Timber Deck. Think of it. With the minimum of maintenance it will look attractive all year round, and stay that way for years to come. Not only do you have a great environment to relax in throughout the year, but it'll probably add to value of your home.

 

 

Decking_under_constructionWe know how important your garden is to you. You may have a picture in your head of exactly how you want it to look. If so, that's great - we're happy to work to your plans. If you're less sure of what you want, we'll be happy to discuss potential designs with you. Whatever you decide, we want you to be totally happy before any construction begins.flat_decking_with_rails_and_spindles

 

Laying timber decking requires much less preparatory work than, say, a conventional stone patio. It certainly takes less time to lay! We think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how little disruption the construction of your decking will create.

 

 

Introducing a patio to your garden provides a place to entertain or space to simply sit back and relax. Gardens Galore create all types of patio using a vast choice of materials ranging from natural sandstone, slate to a large collection of concrete products.

 

 

 

New_patio_areaPreparation is key to a long lasting patio and that is why all our paving is laid to exact specification.

 

 

Your patio can be built to any shape or size to suit both your lifestyle and your garden space.Just_enough_for_table_and_chairs

 

Make the most of small spaces by creating a compact patio area with a small table and chairs.

 

Split level patio areas are great for defining different areas in your garden.

ROOFLINE (fascia & soffit)

 

 

Architectural details such as upvc soffits, fascia’s, bargeboards, guttering and upvc cladding contribute to the overall appearance of your property.Ogee_Fascia_and_Guttering_add__style

 

Unfortunately these features were in the past made from wood and need constant maintenance or they risk decay, the freeze, the thaw cycle, corrosion and insect attack. Which will take their toll no matter how careful you are about painting and repairs?

 

Light_Oak__with_black_gutterWith mercury Home Improvements you can choose from a full replacement where the old wooded fascia and soffit is removed and replaced with upvc.

 

 

Or choose to have the existing wooded fascia and soffit over clad with upvc (depending on the state of the wood not paint work)

Victorian Conservatories

 

 Naturally, the Victorian conservatory complements a Victorian property perfectly but you don't need to live in a Victorian home to enjoy its stylish features. It adds a bold yet elegant statement of individuality to even the most modern of properties.Victorian_Conservatory_by_Mercury_Home_Improvements

Available in four stunning finishes (including the dual finish of white on the inside and wood effect on the outside) and with an immensely versatile roof system, the Victorian conservatory can also be combined with a Garden Room conservatory to allow virtually limitless sizes, shapes and configuration.

 

 

 

 

 

Gable-End Conservatories

 

A popular choice, the strong, clean lines of the Gable-end conservatory harks back to the elegance and grandeur of the early nineteenth century that set styles and fashions still held in esteem today: bold architectural statements and confident rectangular shapes that maximise your available floor space.Gable-end_Conservatory

Coloured glass was particularly in favour during the Regency period and your conservatory need be no exception. At Mercury Home Improvements, our craftsmen will take pride in producing whatever design you want in beautiful coloured and leaded glass to add character and individuality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Edwardian Conservatories

 

The Edwardian era was a time when architects started to flex their imaginations by combining bold, rectangular shapes with decorative flourishes, finials, flamboyant cresting's and coloured glass features. Mercury Home Improvements Edwardian conservatory pays tribute to this period.Edwardian_Conservatory_by_Mercury_Home_Improvements

 

The Edwardian conservatory has an airy feel and a timeless appearance that blends well with properties both old and new. So if it's a stylish, bright, open, informal living area for dining, painting or simply watching the world go by that you are looking for, take a close look at this conservatory. We feel sure you'll be impressed by it.

 

 

 

 

Lean-Too Conservatories

 

The Garden Room conservatory from Mercury Home Improvements has an uncompromisingly modern look. That, of course, makes it the ideal choice for the more modern property. It's very clean and uncluttered lines make it a popular choice for our customers who want a conservatory with a contemporary feel and that really creates the feeling of being part of the garden.Lean-Too_Conservatory_by_Mercury_Home_Improvements

 

This supremely versatile design can be built into or around corners, offers an ample selection of base-wall heights and the choice of single, double or sliding patio doors. Best of all, its gently sloping roof provides one of the largest projections on the market, allowing you to build outwards up to an astounding four metres.

 

 

 

 

Combination (P Shaped) Conservatories

 

We call them 'Combination'. That's because we combine two or more conservatories to create one fantastic, purpose-designed structure that perfectly harmonises with your home.P_Shaped_combination_Conservatory_by_Mercury_Home_Improvements

 

For instance, we can build two Gable-end or perhaps two Edwardian conservatories side by side to create a really generously proportioned room that will become a superb focal point for your home and garden. Alternatively, combine our Victorian model with the Garden Room (P Shape). By mixing the ingenious span and incline variability of the Victorian roofing system with the tremendous versatility of the Garden Room design, the shapes, sizes and configurations you can achieve are never-ending.

 

 

 

 

 Orangeries
