We build bespoke traditional and modern Oak Conservatories and Orangeries using naturally seasoned oak
At Richmond Oak, we use properly seasoned oak, which has been stacked, allowing air flow all around each individually oak board, to ensure that when it is used in the construction of your conservatory, it will have the correct moisture content to minimise any movement. Not only that, we engineer the oak by gluing together boards which are typically 20-30mm thick, alternating the grain of each board. Not only does this make the finished structure more stable, but it is also up to 25% stronger and enables much longer rafters and sections than could be obtained from non-engineered sections.
Whether you are looking for an Oak Conservatory or orangery for your home or business, we offer valuable advice gained through creating numerous bespoke conservatory designs and will turn your vision of a conservatory into reality.
