About Us

Here at Crofton we are the  experts. Having completed many thousands of installations, conservatories and orangeries. We feel that on experience alone no other local company can advise better.

Crofton is a family business that was originally established in 1979. David and Valerie Nahid had their first site at the rear of Hammonds Garden Centre, they then moved to Stubbington Lane in 1987. They retired from the business in 1997 and their Son Steve took the reins. In 2014 He purchased our brand new Fareham site in the heart of West Street.

We have specialised in offering our clients the complete package. Not only can we design any style of conservatory or orangery in PVCu and hardwood using the latest computer design software; we can also offer flooring, furniture and fittings to compliment the installation.

Please take time to walk around our fully furnished display buildings. Each one shows details of its size and the price of the frame & any building work necessary. Our aim is to provide a good idea of how much the total cost of the project will be. We always stress, however, that the buildings you see on site are just ideas. Each conservatory will be priced and built to your style and specification without any price penalties. You only pay for what you have.


The floor coverings in our display buildings are all available from our recommended contractors. Indeed all the furniture and other decorative ideas we have used can be purchased from our on site furniture department.

Our service starts here on the display site wherer our Sales Advisor will discuss your requirements. He will demonstrate our wide selection of products and show you the full range of options that are available. The next stage is our no-obligation survey. Steve Nahid, our surveyor, will call on you at your home to go over your requirements in detail. He will discuss the size and material, which would suit you best, culminating in a total price. This can then be backed up by a detailed quotation which will be accompanied by a set of computer produced drawings of your chosen design.

Should you decide to proceed Steve will call back out and go through final ordering procedure and take a small deposit. We will then deal with your planning application (if applicable). Before work commences the Operations manager Matthew Wheeler will contact you and run through the arrangements. This will be formalised by way of a work schedule and then Matthew will run the complete project from beginning to end, keeping you in touch with progress.
