With this in mind, there is a range of schemes and accreditations that modern installers sign up to demonstrate their quality and competence with their work. We’ll run through a few of these below to help you get an idea as to what you should be looking for.
The Double Glazing and Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS)
The Double Glazing and Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS) has been put in place to mediate disputes between homeowners and DGCOS members. This means if you find yourself in an unlikely dispute with a DGCOS member, then you’ll be able to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with the knowledge that it will be handled as it should be. As it stands, they are the only company of this type to be working in the industry. Further to this, all members have to go through a comprehensive twelve step process to become part of the scheme.
If you have paid a deposit to a DGCOS registered installer, your money will be protected by the DGCOS. This means that if your installer happens to go out of business while they are fitting your orangery roof lantern, you won’t find lost out on your money.
The DGCOS does not charge homeowners in the event that mediation is necessary. It promises to:
Help fully resolve any issues free of charge;
Provide inspections (also at no cost) to help with product or installation issues (although this is not guaranteed and is at their discretion);
Help homeowners to resolve any disputes without any need for them to incur legal costs;
Provide access to a fund that can be used for compensation, thereby ensuring homeowners aren’t left worse off.
Orangery roof lantern installers must also prove their competence over time. That is to say, they are rigorously re-assessed to prove they are just as competent and reliable as when they first joined the DGCOS.
Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme
The Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme, otherwise known as FENSA, is recognised as a Competent Person Scheme (CPS). It operates as a governing body that is responsible for regulating double glazing companies when it comes to their compliance with current building regulations. FENSA installers have to go through a testing and assessment process before they can receive their certification. This means that you can rest assured that you’ll be able to enjoy exceptional standards when it comes to your orangery roof lantern and its installation.
If you would like to check if your installer of choice is part of the FENSA scheme, it is easy for you to do so. All you have to do is use FENSA’s online search tool to find them. You can do this by name, location, or through their FENSA company number if you know it. Through this approach, you’ll be able to capture the peace of mind that comes with making an informed choice. All in all, this will make the whole home improvement process smoother.
We’re here to ensure you are connected to installers that are going to offer you the highest standards of quality and performance. We know that the professionals we put you in touch with have been accredited, but it’s worth checking to see exactly which ones they have by visiting their website. This way, you’ll know exactly what standard of quality you’ll be enjoying.
An orangery roof lantern will also make your home a warmer and more comfortable place to be across the course of the year, comprising a thermally efficient build that works to keep the warm air in your home for a longer period of time. This is made possible by a range of innovative thermal efficiency properties, including a thermally broken frame and professionally integrated weather seals. Both of these work to keep those bitter winter winds at bay, so you can be comfortable all year round. Your orangery will always be the ideal place for you to relax.
Alongside this, investing in a thermally efficient orangery roof lantern could also see you saving money in the long run! This is because you could find that you rely less frequently on your central heating to keep your home at the optimum temperature. This is because the orangery roof lantern works to trap in pockets of warm air, leading to a reduced standard of heat loss. With this in place, you could experience a lower annual heating bill. Alongside this, you could also see your carbon emissions reduce too as you use less energy across the course of the year.
Many modern orangery roof lanterns are also incredibly weather proof, made possible by integrated weather seals. These seals are fitted into the frame to ensure they don’t ruin the aesthetic. They work to prevent draughts and water ingress entering your home, which can cause both discomfort and problems with the roof structure. This is because leaks can promote damp and mould, which will start to compromise how your orangery roof lantern performs. If you take the time to invest in an orangery roof lantern that keeps the elements out you can rest assured that it’s going to stand the test of time.
As mentioned, the final price of your orangery roof lantern is going to be dependent on a wide range of factors. However, this doesn’t mean that you need to worry about being left in the dark with it. As a guide range, you should be expecting to pay anything from around £2000 through to £6,000. The main factors in determining this cost are going to be the materials, sizes, styles, and accessories. To get a free and accurate guide price, you can visit our online orangery roof cost calculator. Simply input your requirements and we’ll be able to offer you a price to take to your installer of choice.
The design of your orangery roof lantern is going to rely on a range of different factors. Most notably, are you looking for something that is going to be more minimal? Or are you looking for something that is going to stand out? You’ll also need to determine your orangery roof lantern based on the design and style of your orangery. If you’ve opted for a modern orangery, then you don’t want a traditional style orangery roof lantern clashing with the aesthetic and build. Luckily, many modern roof lantern designs can be tailored to suit a wide spectrum of property types.
Choosing between a uPVC or aluminium orangery roof lantern is going to be determined by which one is right for your budget and your property. Keep in mind that uPVC tends to be a bit more bulky than aluminium, but accommodates this by coming with a lower price tag. However, aluminium is the ultimate choice for those looking to capture the best in modern appeal. The best thing to do is to speak to your installer of choice to see what they can offer you when it comes to getting the right orangery roof lantern for your property.
