6. Why choose a timber conservatory?
Timber is a fantastic material to build conservatories in, especially oak which is strong and one of the most beautiful building materials known to man; the preferred hardwood of British builders and architects for centuries.
Richmond Oak design and build bespoke conservatories, orangeries & garden rooms, in naturally seasoned oak, by craftsmen using traditional skills. All the oak used for our conservatories has been naturally seasoned; felled and stacked, allowed to dry naturally for 9-36 months, depending upon thickness, before it is glued together and then machined into the shapes and sizes required. The result is superior in every way to the more usual green (unseasoned), which will warp and split when natural weathering occurs. Sometimes this is now called 'air dried' oak.
The naturally-seasoned oak boards used by Richmond Oak are laminated together to ensure that when it is turned into timber frames every upright stays true, every joint tight, every rafter straight and weatherproof for years to come.
Your project is designed in detail for you alone, reflecting your ideas and aspirations; whilst complementing your home and existing architecture. Richmond Oak offer valuable advice gained through creating numerous bespoke timber conservatory designs helping to turn your vision of improving your home living experience into a reality.
