New lockdown measures will not slow down your home extension project
We at Richmond Oak Conservatories would like to reassure all our clients, existing and new that the measures put in place this week do not affect our working current practices. We have put together further details for you, to ensure you know how this works.
November 2020 Covid-19 update
Following the announcement from the Prime Minister that we will enter a second national lockdown, commencing on Thursday, November 5th we are pleased to inform you that Richmond Oak Conservatories will remain open. The Government guidelines confirm that work can carry on in the homes of others, allowing our industry and the installation of our projects to continue whilst continuing to adhere to social distancing rules. Our administration and design team continue to work efficiently and where required remotely from home. Keeping our clients and our team’s health and safety is our priority.
Read more about how Richmond Oak and our industry trade suppliers have adapted to Covid-19 so you can have peace of mind with our reassurances to you.
Why NOW is the time to plan your new glazed home extension
Our homes have become more of a sanctuary this year. Despite the lockdown a positive note is that there has been a huge insurgence over the past 6 months of people keen to make changes, large or small, to make their homes more function-able and enjoyable, particularly with conservatories, orangeries or garden rooms.
We have helped clients create this space during lockdown and with new working practices we are fortunate that installations for our new projects are booked up until early Spring. We will continue to help clients create beautiful new spaces in which to live, work and relax.
The current timescales are, if you wish to have your home extension project started in the Spring and to fully enjoy your new living space in time for the start of Summer then the design planning and decisions to move forward should be considered as soon as possible. This will mean that your home extension project is confirmed in our joinery manufacturing and installation schedule. From design stage to project installation can take up to 6 months, depending if planning is required and our installation schedule.
Ask about our limited availability 'flexi fit' offers for projects confirmed before Christmas and where you are flexible with when your project is installed during 2021.
Don’t let Lockdown slow down your potential home extension project - face to face & online consultations available
During November you can keep momentum with your project ideas as our designers will continue to attend physical on site consultations with clients. This will be based on adhering to social distancing guidelines and our clients are happy to allow a meeting to take place within their property such as the garden.
Alternatively, you can book a remote design consultation from the comfort of your own home with one of our friendly designers, via an online meeting, rather than meeting face to face. Our flexible way of working lets still work closely with you (although safely at a distance!) to create your perfect dream living space, guiding you through all our options and designs, cover all your questions, give expert advice and assistance.
As you would expect from a long established company, we offer a full Home Improvement Protection (HIP) Deposit & Guarantee Insurance, meaning that even though we are in turbulent times, you are safe and protected, read more about our 10-year guarantee on the hardwood conservatories, oak orangeries and home extensions we build.
Now offering you a wider range of design choices
We have listened to demand and now offer more options to enable you to still have the same great service, unique designs with a variety of differing frame material options, to suit all property types and budgets. Whilst we specialise in seasoned oak framed extensions we also offer painted hardwood and timber alternative frame solutions, including aluminium, allowing for more contemporary home extension designs where required.
Our sister, company, Hallmark Glazed Extensions, has now become a main distributor for the largest manufacturer of windows and doors in Europe, offering the widest range of options available.
