The Ultimate in Orangery and Extension Design

Choose the Ultrasky roof if you want a system that combines modern styling with natural light to create a beautiful warm and glazed extension. Strength is the secret behind Ultrasky's success.

A stronger, thermally efficient ridge means fewer bars are needed drawing more light into the room. The Ultrasky roof extends to the eaves beam, rather than a flat roof, and uses the internal pelmet and external cornice to create a beautiful orangery roof style.

Our lantern conservatory roof is compatible with our structural goal post and works with large spans of glass or doors – resulting in uninterrupted views and a stunning design.

Ultrasky Orangery FAQ's

The cost of an orangery depends on many factors including the ground you are building on, the area you live in, and the spec you choose. To get an idea of how much an orangery costs on your home, contact your local Ultraframe installer.

No - orangeries are not cold in winter, in fact they are very warm. Orangery roofs are highly thermally efficient, meaning that orangeries are warm and comfortable, whatever the time of year.

It is difficult to say whether an orangery is more expensive than a conservatory as there are many options for both an orangery and a conservatory. For instance you may choose an orangery with a small lantern roof, or a conservatory with a solid tiled roof and the price could be very similar. High orangery prices would depend on the type of flat roof, the number and size of the lanterns and the amount of building work needed. High conservatory prices would depend on the amount of building work needed, whether the roof is glazed or solid/tiled and the spec of any glazing.

An orangery traditionally has a solid flat roof with one or more glazed lantern roofs. Orangeries often feature brick columns although it is the combination of the flat roof and lanterns that is the defining factor. The Ultrasky roof is a fully pitched roof that gives the illusion that it has a flat roof from the inside and uses Ultraframe Super Insulated Columns to support the roof and doors. 

An orangery will not always require planning permission - it may be exempt under Permitted Development rules. To find out if this would apply for adding an orangery to your home, speak to the planning officer in the building control department of your local council or an Ultraframe Ultra Installer.

In years gone by, orangeries did used to be warmer than conservatories. However, with the latest conservatory roof technology, this is no longer the case and a conservatory can be every bit as warm as an orangery.

Whether an orangery is cheaper than an extension is dependent on many options - there are many options for both an orangery and an extension. Factors that would influence whether an orangery is cheaper than an extension include the base work needed, the builders/installers who carry out the work and the specification of the orangery and extension products used. 

Yes an orangery will add value to your home as it will not only add valuable extra living space, but an orangery is also a highly desirable home improvement. The amount of value it will add to your home will depend on a large number of factors such as the area you live in, your existing home, and the style and specification of orangery.

The biggest factor in determining how long an orangery will take to build is the base work. The time to create an orangery base can vary dependent on the ground conditions and whether piled foundations are needed. Once the base is completed, an orangery should be able to be built within just a couple of weeks.

How long an orangery will last depends on many factors such as the quality of the installation and the products used. If your builder or installer is using quality orangery products such as those form Ultraframe, there is no reason why your orangery shouldn't last for many years.

Yes an orangery can have bi-fold doors. In fact, orangeries with bi-fold doors have become very popular over recent years and are a great option for a modern orangery.

There are many orangery options which can be added to an orangery design so that it suits a modern home. These include flat cornices or parapet features externally to give strong, clean lines, as well as bi-fold doors. The colour of an orangery roof can also have a great bearing on whether it suits a modern home - anthracite grey is very popular right now for windows, doors and conservatory roofs and would be the perfect colour choice for a modern orangery. 

An orangery roof tends to be a flat roof which has one or more lantern roof windows to bring light into the room below. However, it could also have a pitched roof like the ones on an Ultrasky Orangery or Orangery with a Classic roof and insulated pelmet.
