Mark's Background

With a 3 year background already in building and renovating work on properties, Mark came down to London from Cumbria when he was 19 years old and started working for Bartholomew Conservatories, one of the top bespoke hardwood conservatory companies. He then went on to work for another elite company Oak Leaf Conservatories and was asked to be their Contracts Manager, a job which he was very accomplished at however he missed being ‘on the tools’.

In the time that Mark worked for these companies, he was working on Conservatories and Orangeries both nationwide and abroad in Germany, Holland and the USA, including prestigious projects on Staten Island, New York.

Chelsea Flower Show and Hampton Court Flower Show are opportunities for conservatory companies to show off their imagination and skills and produce ornate buildings to show that anything is possible in wood and glass, so Mark had the honour of fitting some of these buildings. Two examples of Oak Leaf Conservatories buildings that Mark fitted several times are below:-

Mark continues to stay in contact with and have excellent relationships with most of the top companies in the bespoke hardwood conservatories sector and for many years has been recommended by them to their clients for the maintenance of their buildings, once their Guarantees have expired.

In 1994 Mark went on to start his own niche business, initially with his younger brother Stephen, specialising in conservatory repairs and maintenance, upgrading timber conservatories and also supplying and fitting new replacement bespoke hardwood Conservatories and Orangeries. Because he has worked on all makes of timber conservatories, this puts him in the unique position of understanding the strengths and weaknesses of all conservatory designs and specifications across the board and most importantly, how well they perform over time. In turn, we are constantly improving the specifications of the conservatory components we use, whilst ensuring that they do not detract but only enhance the beauty of a timber and glass conservatory.

After more than 30 years in the business, Mark continues to love the challenge that each job brings him because every bespoke conservatory is of course different. Meeting new clients, trying to solve their conservatory dilemmas and enhance their homes with buildings which are often the heart of the home is what Mark enjoys the most. Many clients stay in touch and continue to call on our services and advice over the years.

What People Say About Us

Mrs C. Somerset, Chipping Norton

Thank you, I am so pleased with the new roof on my Amdega conservatory. Please thank Mark from me too. What a great family team! 

Mrs H. Youens, Penn

Our conservatory looks beautiful thank you and we can’t wait to start living in it again! So pleased.

Mr & Mrs J. Hooper, Chorleywood

A really excellent job done. The installation of our new Orangery was efficient and effective, and Mark and the team were positive, friendly and great fun. We are so pleased to have found reliable professionals, which is the exception rather than the norm in this field, I understand. Thanks also to Leslie for bearing with us and helping to administer this process. Please pass on our best to Mark and tell him that we look forward to many years spent in his master creation!

Mrs P. Tully

Mark and team returned and once again did such an incredibly professional job.  The quality of workmanship is of such a high standard. Mark and team have such a high bar and the end result is something that will last for many years.  I have to also say that it’s a joy to have them all around.  Their banter and chat is delightful.  Sincerely couldn’t recommend enough.   You might find something cheaper sure but the quality of workmanship and dedication for perfection you won’t find anywhere else.  We couldn’t quite afford to do the job in one go so did the roof and they returned to do the rest 18 -20 months later.  There were no short cuts eg Mark replaced some of the guttering that was originally done as he wasn’t  happy with it …. what more can you ask for ?  We now have a wonderful space that we can enjoy for years to come.   Thank you.


Mrs P. Thompson

I am very happy with my new conservatory and really appreciate all the hard work that you and your family have done to make it a reality.  Thanks to Mark, James, Charlotte and Sam for their hard work and of course yourself for helping to get the right approvals.  


Mr & Mrs T. Carter, Cheam

Mark’s glass is a huge success and this hot weather has certainly proved that it works for keeping the temperature degrees cooler than it previously would have been.

Have also coped with another heavy thunderstorm, no leaks. We had 22mms of rain in 2 hours yesterday, so it looks like a success. 

The Mark George Team were not a bad lot, seemed to work hard, do a good job, and were fun to have around.

I would definitely let them come again if necessary. Thank them all and for your own efficient contribution.


Mr & Mrs M. Alexander, Maidenhead

Mark George Conservatories’ renovation of our 1993 large hardwood conservatory exceeded our expectations. Complicated repairs and improvements were made to the wood structure, particularly for the valley gutter, and to the window frames. Three existing vents were replaced with a single large vent of a better design. All windows were renewed with new glazing to current standards. Mark’s advice was excellent through out. The project execution was slickly carried out and it was a pleasure to have Mark, James and Charlotte working so well together under Leslie’s control….


Mr S. Newman, Oxted

I had one beam in my 6x4m conservatory which had rotted over a ten year period which I tried hard for some time to find someone competent to replace. Estimates received were often ridiculous. Luckily I came across Mark George Conservatories – an internet find. They attended for an estimate and it was obvious from the start that they knew their job! I decided, as well as the beam replacement, to replace the two old vents with new, less vulnerable ones, and to change the aluminium glass joins with new properly capped ones. Their estimate, whilst not low, seemed fair. A date for the installation was given and, indeed, adhered to bar one day.

The team for the repair was very pleasant to deal with, kept to their responsibilities regarding Covid-19 distancing etc., and set about the work immediately. Finished on time, the final job was top-class and included cleaning up after. I would heartily recommend Mark George Conservatories for first class work.


Mr Baker & Mrs Wearing, London

We are very pleased with the final result and we would like to express our thanks for all your input and hard work from beginning to end. We were initially concerned that we would get a refurbished structure that would be too modern for the house, but in fact the conservatory you have built is a brilliant combination of ancient and modern, sitting well with a late-Victorian detached house but sufficiently updated in its materials and construction to be used as a garden room all year round. We look forward to using it. It’s not often you have a whole family working together, or such a nice one, but we were hugely impressed by your team effort and by your obvious pride in your craft. We will recommend you to others.

Mr & Mrs D. Lynch, Ashtead

We’re absolutely delighted with the conservatory. We struggled for years, not knowing what to do with a large conservatory – that was in exactly the right place and with a very expensive terracotta floor – but sadly also with a leaking roof and deteriorating timbers. You managed to retain the foundations and lovely floor but replace and improve everything else. It now looks like you started from scratch.
Mark, James and Charlotte are very skilled craftspeople; and it was lovely to have them around. We really liked the way they checked details with us – or explained choices – but then got on and worked at speed. With your efficient project management Leslie, you make a great team.
