Installing an orangery is an excellent way of improving your home’s kerb appeal. It will be much more appealing to potential buyers.
The hardware and features in our modern orangeries ensure thermal efficiency, weatherproofing, acoustic insulation and more.
Many of our orangery components are manufactured by British companies right here in the UK, providing us with better quality control.
Orangeries are fast becoming one of the most popular house extensions here in Newbury and Berkshire. They are achieving such an in-demand status because they operate as a middle-ground between a conservatory and a conventional extension. With this, they essentially provide the best benefits of both products, meaning you aren’t making a compromise.
Their design blends robust brickwork with wide-spanning windows and doors and, in many cases, a glazed roof. They offer heightened privacy levels compared with a traditional extension, while still allowing plenty of light to filter in. During winter, orangeries feel like a true extension of the home. In summer, they’ll feel seamlessly connected with your garden or outdoor space.
As a result of this, orangeries serve as a multi-functional living area that can be used for a variety of purposes. Excellent as a lounge, dining area or office, many homeowners convert their orangeries into open-plan kitchens or use them as playrooms for children. With this extra usable space, your entire home will feel larger and more spacious.
With their enhanced structural rigidity, orangeries can be fitted with wider-spanning sets of external doors than a conservatory can. You can opt for either our patio doors or aluminium bifolds. You’ll have the option of up to five or six eave doors, knowing it won’t affect the structural integrity of the build. This is something you can’t have with a conservatory.
Our orangeries are incredibly thermally efficient. The addition of extra bricked areas has a drastic effect on the energy efficiency. They do a fantastic job of trapping heat within the home, allowing you to use your new extension 12 months a year without costly heating bills.
If you opt for an Ultraframe roof system, your orangery will be fitted with a wide range of their thermally efficient measures. Among these are an insulating perimeter pelmet, corner columns and a ventilating roofline that help achieve U-values between 0.7 and 0.9W/m2K.
You have complete peace of mind regarding weatherproofing with these orangeries. They are designed with a range of hardware that prevents the ingress of rainwater even during the most torrential conditions. In doing this, you’re protected against damp and mould through standing water.
Our orangeries and their roof systems are also stringently tested in strong windspeeds. Doing so ensures they remain structural rigid in even the most storm like weather. You won’t need to worry about any components coming loose or damaged.
