Frequently Asked Questions
How much does an oak conservatory cost
Based on our experience throughout 2019, client bespoke timber conservatory projects typically range from £50k to £100k depending on size and specification.
How long does it take to build a bespoke oak conservatory
Typically, the design and build process of a bespoke oak conservatory will take from 10 to 18 weeks depending on whether planning permission is required.
When does a conservatory need planning permission
You will need planning permission for your oak conservatory if you are located in a conservation area (or area of outstanding natural beauty) or if your property is a listed building, or if the project extends beyond 3 meters (for semi-detached) or 4 meters (for detached).
What is the difference between a conservatory and an orangery
A hardwood conservatory primarily includes a glass roof and glass sides with a timber frame. An oak Orangery includes a flat roof with a glazed timber-framed lantern.
Is a conservatory too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter
No - A Richmond Oak Conservatory is usable all-year-round because we use the very best Solar Control Glass to prevent excessive heat gain on the hottest days, with sophisticated roof vents to maintain a comfortable climate by releasing excess hot air. The temperature is maintained in the winter through the installation of underfloor heating and again, heat retention is aided by the double-glazed Solar Control Glass.
