The principal difference between an orangery and conservatory is their construction.

Whereas a conservatory will typically have over 75% of its roof glazed, an orangery generally has less than 75%. Plus, over 50% of the wall area of a conservatory would also be glazed.

Both are popular with homeowners, but which you choose depends on the style of construction most suited to your requirements.

At Excellent Windows, all our windows, doors and conservatories are designed to British Security Standards and meet the criteria of the Official Police Security Initiative.

We only choose suppliers who provide first-class products and that includes the frames we use for our conservatories. Ultraframe offers the best, BSI approved, quality frames on the market, exceeding the latest industry standards.

That’s why we supply Ultraframe in a selection of colours and finishes, plus different options for configuration, frame style and glass.

 

Double glazing is one of the best investments you can make if you’re looking for ways to make your home warm and cosy this winter.

The insulation provided by double glazing limits the transfer of hot or cold air through your windows. As a result, your home stays warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Energy efficient glazing also enables you to cut your carbon footprint and reduce your energy bills.

Having double-glazed windows or doors fitted, or a new conservatory built, are amongst the most effective ways to improve your home.

Not only do these new features instantly make your property more comfortable and attractive – they also increase its resale value. In terms of investment, when you buy a car, its value decreases as soon as it leaves the forecourt. With double-glazing or a conservatory, you immediately increase the value of your home, and it typically has a lifespan of 20 years – with no costly maintenance required.

Replacing windows and doors or adding a conservatory is a big decision for most of us, so it pays to do some research to find a company who delivers on price, quality and service.
