Available as a retrofit or for a newly built orangery, our orangery roof systems provide an energy-efficient, safe solution compliant with current building regulations. Whether you suffer from your orangery being too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer, Ploughcroft ensures that you will never suffer from temperature woes again.
Differences Between an Orangery and a Conservatory
Whereas conservatories are often viewed as a seamless extension to a home adding extra living space to enable occupants to enjoy garden views, orangeries are historically a sign of luxury and are often located in the grounds of a home so not always attached to the main property.
Originally for growing citrus trees in a weather protected environment in a similar way to how greenhouses facilitate the growth of plants, orangeries tend to consist of more brickwork and large windows, the interior differing from the internal look of the main property. In contrast, conservatories comprise of less brickwork and feel like another room in the house.
Superior Energy-Efficiency Levels
U-Value is the measurement used to determine how good an insulator a material it is. The lower the U-Value the better the material is at insulating. Just like our conservatory roofs, our orangery roof systems offer impressive U-Values of under 0.18 helping to maintain the optimum temperature for each season and enhancing your comfort whilst in orangery.
As with our tiled Conservatory Roofs, Ploughcroft will ensure that the inside of your new orangery roofing meets all your design requirements. Finished in plaster and with optionally recessed spotlights, recreate the feeling of a brand new extension in your existing orangery.
When it comes to orangery roof design, we have you covered. The built-in soffit and fascia on the orangery roof, together with our broad range of tile options, ensures your new orangery roof design matches the roof on your existing property as naturally and seamlessly as possible. Why not opt for exterior lighting for a modern wow factor to complete the look?
As VELUX certified installers we can install stylish roof windows into your orangery roof, smartly incorporating them into your orangery roof design to flood your orangery with healthy natural light.
