Will I need planning permission for an orangery?
Orangeries often require planning permission but, in a lot of instances, they can be added to a home under permitted development rights.
If the ridge height of your orangery roof (the top point) is less than the eaves on your property's roof, planning permission may not be needed.
If planning is required, we can take the stress and hassle out of the process by securing planning permission on your behalf. This will be done before any final orangery costs are confirmed and prior to the start of the build – so you know your building work meets all of the necessary planning guidelines.
What is the design and build process?
The first step is to send one of our design specialists to your property to give you a free no-obligation quote based on your exact requirements. Once you’re happy with the price and have chosen a payment plan, we’ll conduct a detailed site survey to check on drain levels and the impact of any proposed new roof heights.
After a second survey, we’ll arrange a date to start the construction process. Any trench footings needed will be dug to a minimum depth of 650mm, with a full damp proof course membrane (carrying a 10-year warranty) put into the base.
At EYG, we carry out all the manufacturing and installation work ourselves - thanks to our expert team of fully-qualified tradesmen, who boast qualifications that are recognised by the major UK trade associations – giving you confidence that your investment is in safe hands.
How long does an orangery take to install?
Obviously, the amount of time it takes to install your orangery will depend largely on the size and complexity of your chosen design. We will provide you with an accurate fixed-price quote and let you know approximately how long the project will take to complete after an on-site inspection.
What types of orangeries can EYG design?
Every bespoke orangery we design is made to measure. Whether you want a contemporary or traditional look, we can use UPVC, aluminium or timber to suit your exact requirements – simply choose the material and style that’s best for your home.
What finishing touches can I choose?
It's often the little finishing touches that make your orangery extension unique. At EYG, we work closely with you to finalise a design that fulfils your needs - and budget.
We offer an extensive range of extras such as decorative glass, hinges, handles and pelmets which can hide internal lighting and external guttering. Be creative and consider incorporating spotlights and uplighters to add drama and ambient light inside your new living space.
Aluminium bi-fold doors are a great way to link the inside and outside of your home, but they’re not easy to add during the build so weigh up all your options in the design phase.
