Frequently Asked Questions

We’re sure you’ve got some questions or queries about our innovative range of glass extensions. If you can’t find an answer below, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

What’s the difference between a conservatory & an orangery?

Traditionally, the main difference between an orangery and a conservatory was that orangeries featured brick pillars and a lantern roof, whereas conservatories were usually made from glass or polycarbonate panels. Nowadays both orangery and conservatory style extensions can be extremely similar.

Do roof lantern need planning permission?

It really depends on different factors. For example, if the roof lantern is part of a new extension it maybe allowed under permitted development rights. If the roof lantern is replacing an existing roof, then chances are you won’t need planning permission. Feel free to get in contact to get advise..

Is a veranda a balcony?

Typically, no. Veranda’s are usually constructed at ground floor level, whereas balconies are elevated walkways or standing areas attached to the side of a building or interior wall.
