Conservatories and home improvements in the countryside

I’m going to talk about myself in throughout the duration of this post. Why? Well, because it’s my website and I can do what I want.

All Jokes aside, the reason I’m going to talk about myself is because I feel like I have a relevant story for you guys that you will not only like and find interesting, but maybe some of you will find helpful and could be of use for your real life endeavours. So what exactly am I talking about? Well, if you can’t tell by the title I’m talking about my own home and some details about it. But wait Mr. Saddle, isn’t this a horse website; meaning you only talk about horses? Yes, you’re right, but I feel like c’mon you can’t solely talking about horses throughout the entirety of the website. Plus, the reason I am talking about it is because it is kind of related to horses, so it is relevant and horse related.

Conservatories & Doors Stoke-On-Trent

Now I know, most of you will ether get a conservatory added on to your house in the future, already have a house with a conservatory, and if so may need it fixed, replaced or modified in the future. I also know, since you’re reading this right now, you show a slight interest… Let’s be honest, you’re reading a post on a horse website, that pretty much hows you have a big interest in horses, maybe you more than likely own your very own horse! If that’s the case and you’re like me and live in the countryside, you may live on the farm, so you may be a stones throw away from these said horses. You see where i’m going here. Well if you don’t I shall reveal. *drum role please*

My newly built conservatory caters to this lifestyle, so if you live this kind of lifestyle then carry on reading! I live in the Stoke and Stoke-On-Trent area, and all around me I have grass and well, more grass, oh and quite a few animals, including you guessed it; horses! Well, whilst sitting in my conservatory, I can see the horses and I was thinking to myself “wouldn’t it be great if I could have the whole of this conservatory open up so I can simply just get right to my beloved horses right away.” I know it’s not exactly the biggest issue in the world, but if you notice something that can be improved, why not improve it right? That’s exactly what I did!

Long Story Short: A fantastic local Double glazing experts building company by the name of Elite UPVC sorted me out, modified my existing conservatory and made it futuristic. So, to my point at the start that you may find this useful, if you’re in the situation i’m in, you may have no thought about this idea, so this is what I’m here for! You may not take my idea and role with it, and that’s cool.. All I wanted to let you know was that this is possible.

A sheltered roof for your horses

A big thank you to Gareth for helping us get this site back up and running! We have been very busy working on other projects; so please excuse our dismissal since late last year. We can’t promise we will be here every week, but hopefully we will be a lot more active than we have before. But as the expression goes “Better late than never”.


Why do you need a sheltered roof?

Construction company says that owners of horses really need to understand the importance of a roof for your horses; through all seasons. Think about it, during the winter, the cold and the rain… How would you like it if you had to stay out side during the cold months. Granted they are animals and evolution helps them out with thick skin and fur to cope to some extent with the cold weather. Also a lot of people don’t take into consideration the warm months. The sun beaming down on you day after day, it isn’t healthy for anyone or anything and this includes your little babies that you love; them beautiful horses. They need shade, to be able to have shade whenever they want or need it. That’s why a sheltered roof is important. According to this Wigan roofing company their area of Wigan and Atherton doesn’t have a lot of fields to produce much shelter for animals, mainly for us humans; but they have come across from time to time where a farmer of someone who owns a horse or even looks after a horse, who needs a good quality sheltered roof for the horses.

What is a Sheltered roof?

Ok, this is pretty simple but I want everyone to understand it 100%. Have you ever been to, own or seen a farm or anything that holds horses. Maybe a rich family with a few aches of land that own a horse. Well you probably see something like a barn. This is like that, but its basically just a standing roof (sometimes with sides). Within Wigan and England it is to keep the food and all what we have discussed covered, dry and over all better condition if there wasn’t the roof.

What is the roof made with?

Typically the roof doesn’t use as good quality products as they would be using on a house, for obvious reasons. But again, the key to good houses is to get fantastic services and fantastic products and materials. This applies to pretty much anything in life; so why wouldn’t it apply to the roofing shelter for the horse.

More often than not you will usually find them made out of wood, but can sometimes be found being made out of other materials such as metal and even a wide range of different types of wood.

English roofing for outside animals

The countryside will show you all the areas in England that you will typically find animal barns and sheltered roofs. Having said that, that doesn’t mean you won’t find them in more populated areas of England, such as main cities, such as Wigan, Atherton of Manchester!
