Orangeries From Stockport Designs and Build
Stockport Designs and Build is a well established building company specialising in orangeries and orangery extensions in Stockport.
What is an orangery or orangerie?
The modern day orangery or orangerie is a type of home/house extension that is usually built using stone, brick, or hardwood, although developments in glass technologies and other materials including insulation have produced feasible alternatives to a traditional orangery construction.
The main difference with a conservatory is in the construction of its roof – a conservatory will have more than 75 per cent of its roof glazed, while an orangery will have less than 75 per cent glazed. Domestic orangeries also typically feature a roof lantern.
Benefits to having a Orangery
- Studier than a Conservatory
- This flexible structure can be used as a kitchen, dining room or extra living area due to the natural light, view and thicker walls
- Adding an Orangery increases the value of your property
- Allows light to flood into your house providing a unique atmosphere

Frequently Asked Questions about Orangeries

Do you need planning for an orangery?
Like a single story extension and conservatory you do not require planning permission to build an orangery. For more information about planning permission in Stockport visit the Stockport Council website Planning section
Are orangeries warmer than conservatories?
Both Conservatories and Orangeries mainly consist of glass, therefore orangeries and conservatories tend to be colder in the winter and warmer in the summer.
Due to the fact that orangeries contain walls that are more solid and a more solid roof than a conservatory it does mean orangeries do manage to retain more heat than a conservatory.

Looking For Recommended Orangery Builders in Stockport?
As builders of Orangeries in Stockport most of our work comes from recommendations or repeat orangery builds from existing customers, we pride ourselves in the quality of our work.
Had an orangery built by Stockport Designs and Build and the quality of the brickwork and construction was excellent. Throughout the build the workers were polite, extremely clean and efficient and a credit to the company. Additional work arranged through Lee such as electrician, plumber and plasterer were also excellent and have had no issues with any of the work these past three years. Now having a 2-storey side extension built and having Stockport Designs and Build back to do another great job. Would definitely recommend Lee and his team.
