However, we can tell you that a conservatory will traditionally have lots of glass, including a glass roof, glass walls etc. giving you a fantastic view from anywhere within the space.

We can also provide various forms of solar control glazing to help with temperature regulation.
Your typical orangery consists of brick or aluminium pillars, which are great for both privacy and comfort and add a luxurious feel. It will also often have a pelmet around the roof, with this feature also helping to insulate the room. As for its roof, it can be anything from a glass lantern or solid tiled roof – you can even have something in between the two if you want.
