Conservatories, Orangeries, Extensions


Whether you want a new conservatory, a new orangery or a new extension or a mixture contact us so we can help you with your project in the West Sussex, East Sussex, Hants, Surrey and West Kent area and nearby. The success of the end result is very much in the detail of design, of looks, performance and matching of your initial requirements of use.  We do not underestimate the time needed to get it right and are very happy to spend necessary time to ensure your satisfaction


We strive for environmentally friendly solutions 

CONSERVATORIES - Many of the older homes were built with no concern for enjoying the garden from the house. The advent of conservatories in the popular sense now provides a virtual living room that feels almost to be in the garden which transforms the internal living space of the house to give so much pleasure and versatility

Designs and materials - There are of course classic designs like Edwardian, Georgian and Victorian conservatories for small, medium and large conservatories. The trick is to ensure the design partners the house as seamlessly as possible and produces the effect that is desired. In many cases a bespoke conservatory is the answer, where one is deisigned to your specific shape and size

ORANGERIES - Orangeries are very popular for larger structures that need light but not too much glass and can be used more as an extension than a conservatory. They are a wonderful way of having an extension that looks very elegant and is a real feature on the property. We have no standard designs so each is individually tailored to maximise the effect and value on the property

EXTENSIONS -  In many cases an orangery or conservatory is part of a combined addition to the property incorporating brickwork, one or two roof lanterns and a suitable amount of glass walling.  We can provide advice and guidance in designing an extension to meet your specific requirements

DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
Construction  - Construction materials for frames vary between PVCu  (poly vinyl chloride unplastised), aluminium (thermally broken), brick and timber (softwood or hard wood).  Each have their own characteristics which should be considered on each project.   We strive for environmentally friendly solutions.  PVCu offering the cheapest option, aluminium offering strength and durability, bricks often blend well with the existing property whilst timber (hardwood) conservatories give a more natural and traditional look but require more maintenance. Glass or non glass roof depending on accepted rain noise level and views through roof
As Sussex Conservatories are not manufactures of the frame profiles or glazing units we are not restricted on what we can offer. We ensure we research the whole supply market place for the most appropriate materials for any one project as each build will have its own unique requirements. These requirements include frame colour, security, ventilation, sun screening, thermal performance, self cleaning, optical features, opening window functions etc.  The market is improving the performance of products each year so it is vital to be in a position to access the best solutions

Other design considerations -  All the other decisions around foundations, base, landscaping, walls, plastering, tiling, heating, lighting, electric roof windows and so on will be discussed and decided upon also in the light of current regulations for these services

Planning -  We will advise re any relevant planning rules and neighbour consent schemes and can provide application services if required

Maintenance & repairs - With most suppliers any completed project is fully guaranteed for 10 years ... even so the unit will require cleaning and servicing.  We offer access to an annual service package that ensures not only cleanliness of glass inside and out but also service to the locks and hinges and any adjustments that are needed

You won't be left 'high and dry' after the build!
