The Sustainable Benefits of Using Hardwood When Building a Conservatory

There is nothing more satisfying than when we are travelling to visit a new client, we pass a Conservatory, Orangery, Sun Lounge or Extension that we designed, manufactured and installed over 25 years ago, to see it still being valued and enjoyed as if no time had passed at all.

It’s a firm reminder that our decision to employ traditional methods combined with using only the highest quality materials and products, transcends generations and means our products last a lifetime.

In our view, and we suspect the thousands of Mozolowski & Murray clients who have selected hardwood as their material of choice would agree, this wonderful natural product deserves a special shout out. Not only because hardwood offers numerous benefits in terms of craftsmanship and production, but its versatility and durability means we can create truly stunning, life-enhancing spaces that can withstand even the harshest Scottish climate, making it an excellent investment all round.

So, here’s just some of the many reasons why we think hardwood is so special:

Renewable Resource: Hardwood is a renewable resource, which means that it can be sustainably harvested and replenished. This makes it a great option for those looking to build a sustainable conservatory, that has a lower impact on the environment.

Durability: Hardwood is a very durable material that will last for many years. This means that if you build a conservatory using hardwood, it is likely to last longer while retaining its optimum condition than one built using other materials. Additionally, hardwood can be refinished and restored to its original beauty, further extending its lifespan.

Insulation: Hardwood has natural insulating properties that can help keep your conservatory warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This means that you'll be able to use your conservatory all year-round without having to worry about excessive heating or cooling costs.

Carbon Storage: Hardwood trees store carbon as they grow, which means that when you use hardwood for building, you're helping to store carbon that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere. This can help to reduce the impact of your conservatory on the environment.

Low Maintenance: Hardwood is a low-maintenance material that requires very little upkeep. This means that once your conservatory is built, you won't have to spend a lot of time or money maintaining it.

Building a Conservatory, Orangery, Sun Lounge or Extension using hardwood can provide you with a range of sustainable benefits that will make your investment environmentally friendly, long-lasting, and uniquely beautiful.
