All of our products are beautifully finished by hand before being coated with high build Microporous paints or stains. These coatings are factory spray applied to any RAL colour of your choice and they will give your product up to 4 years protection between coatings.
Since conservatories were first elevated to popularity the manufacturing of glass has moved at a dramatic pace to keep up with the requirements of the customer whether that be solar control or to control heat loss Everitt and Jones can provide you with the latest available types of glass to suit your needs and budget.
We work wholly in wood and take the finest hardwoods and engineered Scandanavian Redwoods and craft conservatories to order. Each conservatory or orangery is designed, built and installed by our own dedicated fully trained, time served craftsmen in our Woburn workshop and the same is true of our Windows, doors and Multi-fold doors.
All our timber is specially selected by us from sustainable forests as we have a strong regard for the beautiful environment around us.
Windows are glazed in toughened or laminated glass to the relevant British standard and insulate against heat loss and noise penetration.

Importantly all of our wood comes from managed resources and is Carbon Neutral helping the environment around us.
