Are you planning any home improvements? Do you want to enhance your standard of living and increase the size of your home? Have you thought about extending your property but you’re unsure which is the best option? If you’re considering installing a glazed extension at your home, there are two options. Conservatories and orangeries each have their own benefits. Your choice will ultimately depend on your expectations. To help you to make a fully informed decision, here is some information about both types of extension.

Benefits of a conservatory

Conservatories are an excellent way to create a bright and airy extended living area. At Meadow Hill Construction, we install a range of high performing conservatories to suit any type of home. Our conservatories can be constructed using either full length glazing panels to maximise natural light intake or feature a brick-built dwarf wall to match your existing property’s aesthetic.

Conservatories traditionally feature:

  • A fully glazed roof
  • A large proportion of glazing (usually up to 80%)
  • A selection of styles including Victorian, Edwardian and gable-end
  • Constructed from either uPVC, aluminium or timber
  • A rated windows and doors

Benefits of an orangery

An orangery is a great choice when you want to combine the natural light intake of a conservatory with the more solid feel of a traditional brick-built extension. Orangeries typically feature more brick-work than conservatories, with a series of brick-built columns supporting a central lantern roof.

Orangeries traditionally feature:

  • A lantern roof
  • Insulated supporting columns
  • Plastered interior perimeter ceiling
  • A rated windows and doors
  • Constructed from either uPVC, aluminium or timber

As you can see, there are similarities and differences between the two types of glazed extension. If you’d like to find out more about our orangeries and conservatories or any of our products or services contact us today. Give us a call on 0163 581 3338 or send us a message online.
