Orangeries

Orangery style conservatories are becoming more and more popular in the UK – achieving the bright airy feel of a conservatory, whilst keeping the feel of part of your home rather than an extension to it.

  • All work is carried out by ourselves.

  • Brickwork piers or “loggia” style posts available.

  • Conservatory roof keeps room bright

  • Modern contemporary and classic orangery styles available

An orangery is basically a conservatory with a twist – instead of the roof being supported by window frames-  the frames are generally divided by posts, which then a flat roof is made with a conservatory glass roof in the middle.

This allows for things like down lights – better energy efficiency through the use of cavity walls, and a more permanent feel to the extension.

As with conservatories, there can be planning or structural considerations, so we always recomend you get in touch with one of the team so we can advise you on what orangery is best for you.

Fascias, soffits and guttering

Many houses in the UK are fitted with wooden roofing products, there are two main issues with this. The first being our wet and windy weather climate causing them to rot, warp and crack and the second that they become under attack from wood-boring insects.

UPVC fascias, soffits and guttering are a fantastic alternative, which can be fitted by our installers at the same time as your windows and doors or as a separate project.

Fascias

The fascia board is the long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof. The fascia is fixed directly to the roof trusses and usually supports the bottom row of tiles and holding up the guttering.

Soffits

The soffit board is tucked away under the fascia board. The soffit can be ventilated to allow the flow of air into the roof area. Alternatively, ventilation can be provided over the top of the fascia board, many people prefer the latter solution. However, without adequate ventilation, condensation will form in the roof increasing the risk of timber decay.

Guttering 

A gutter can be defined as a narrow trough or channel that runs around the perimeter of the roof.  The purpose of the gutter is to collect and funnel away any water that lands on the roof.  Gutters are important as they take water away from the building’s foundations, protect your exterior surfaces, and stop water from entering the home.  Of course, gutters can also lead to your rainwater tank, funnelling water into the tank for later use in the home or garden.

Guttering is commonly made from high-quality, water-resistant materials such as Colorbond, zincalume, aluminium, stainless steel, and PVC.  It comes in a range of types and profiles (profile is how the gutter looks when you view it), and also in a range of colours so that you can choose the one that best suits your roof and the trims of your home.
