Of course, you may just want a classic veranda, without the conservatory attached. These have been a popular garden feature since the 1850s. Owing their origins to Australia, these products combine light and shade so that you can enjoy sitting outside in any weather. You can enjoy hotter days while staying protected from the Sun. You can even enjoy outside eating and socialising on those rainy Summer days that Buckinghamshire residents are so accustomed to.

Quick and easy to install, a bespoke veranda can be added to your house with minimal disruption to your routine. They can be manufactured to suit any style of property, with a minimum pitch of 5° and a maximum of 30°.

3.     Orangeries in Buckinghamshire

They were originally used as rooms to grow plants and citrus fruits. However, nowadays, they are seen as a favourable alternative to full-on extension project. They combine the benefits of a modern conservatory with the feeling of permanence that comes with an extension. As well as being an enjoyable space all year round, it also boosts your kerb appeal and sees your home’s value increase.

An orangery combines solid brick pillars, a flat roof and a state-of-the-art roof lantern. This final element is what gives it a feeling of spaciousness. Natural light streams in, connecting you to the garden while keeping you sheltered from the elements.

Once installed, it can serve a number of purposes. Whether it’s a kitchen extension, a dining room, a home gym or home office, an orangery is an exceptionally versatile home improvement project. You can even use it for it’s intended purpose by growing and tending to plants there.

4.     A new conservatory for your Buckinghamshire garden

An Ultraframe Conservatory

This classic choice is now a viable choice thanks to modern glazing technology. For years, outdated conservatories suffered from being too hot in the Summer and too cold in the Winter. They became unused and unloved spaces. What’s more, their inefficient glazing was causing swathes of heat to escape the home, sending energy bills skyrocketing. Now, with the highest quality glazing, our conservatories can secure U-values as low as 0.8 W/m²k. This keeps the room an enjoyable space all year round and improves your home’s overall thermal performance.

As well as acting as a garden gateway, a bespoke conservatory can also double up as a playroom for your children, or a quiet reading space. Available in five different conservatory styles, the opportunities are truly endless. Furthermore, a choice of glass, tiled, or combination roof means you can choose how much light gets in and how integrated the design is with the garden.

5.     Replacement conservatory roofs

  • Improved thermal performance
  • Better noise insulation
  • Preventing leaks and draughts
  • Reduced sun glare and UV exposure

Externally, a range of tile and roof window options can help to considerably increase your property’s kerb appeal. In every sense, new roof can make your conservatory an enjoyable and comfortable space again, reconnecting you with your garden and bringing Summer back into the house.
