Gone are the days when orangeries were confined to the realm of stately mansions. Now, the SupaLite orangery roof injects a dash of contemporary sophistication into even the most modern of homes. Experience the delightful extra warmth provided by a SupaLite orangery roof, all without sacrificing the ample natural light that makes an orangery so enticing.
With the choice between a flat roof orangery or a tiled roof orangery in an array of colours and styles, you have the power to curate an orangery that perfectly complements your home’s unique character.
SupaLite has two orangery roof designs available, including a flat roof orangery or an orangery with a tiled roof, with the ability to personalise each to your taste and needs.
Our iLite Flat Roof System is the latest addition to our portfolio, which combines contemporary design with the very best thermal properties. In the centre, we will add a pitched glass lantern to flood your room with light. This is the perfect orangery for a modern, stylish home.
Combining the classic SupaLite tiled conservatory roof with the regality of a renaissance orangery. Our tiled orangery roofs have excellent insulative properties, with a central glass lantern to allow light into the room. Tiles are available in various styles to match your home.
A SupaLite orangery roof looks as good inside as it does out. An orangery is an extension to your home, much warmer than a conservatory thanks to brick walls and a tiled roof. There is a seamless transition between orangery and home. Our trusted installers use professional plasterers to ensure ceilings have an impeccable finish. Spotlights can also be installed to enjoy your orangery at night, whether that’s reading a book or entertaining guests.
All SupaLite roof systems are engineered to meet building regulations. Our orangery roofs, both of our flat roof orangery and tiled orangery roofs are no exception. We have JHAI approval
for both orangery roofs and both are fully building regulation compliant, so you don’t have to worry about faults and breakages
What is an orangery?
An orangery is a brick building with large windows, a flat roof and a pitched glass lantern in the middle of the roof. Orangeries date back to the Renaissance era, when wealthy aristocrats would use them to grow citrus fruits (hence the name) during winter. They still hold regal connotations to this day, commonly associated with stately homes.
What is the difference between a conservatory and an orangery roof?
A conservatory and orangery are similar, but there are important differences between them. An orangery is a brick structure with brick pillars, large glass window, a flat roof and a glass lantern in the middle. A conservatory, on the other hand, is primarily a glass structure.
Can you convert a conservatory into an orangery?
Generally, we wouldn’t recommend converting a conservatory into an orangery. The structural differences between the two makes it hard to convert without knocking it down. That’s why we’d always suggest starting from scratch.
How much is an orangery roof?
How long is a piece of string? The cost of an orangery can vary according to lots of different factors, including size of the orangery, size of the glass lantern, preferred style and finish. Get in touch with us for a bespoke quote.
Do you need planning permission for an orangery?
Orangeries are generally subject to the same planning permission as a single storey extension. That means if the orangery does not extend from the rear wall of the house by more than 3 metres, you shouldn’t need planning permission. Always do your own research. Find out more here.
What is the difference between an orangery roof and a conservatory roof?
The primary difference is in the roof construction. A conservatory has a mostly glazed roof, while an orangery features a solid perimeter roof with roof lanterns for light entry.
Is an orangery cheaper than an extension?
Both an orangery and a conservatory tend to be more cost-effective than a traditional house extension while providing extra living space and a home refresh.
