Firstly, and most importantly, we would like to thank all involved in this project. We are very, very pleased with the outcome. The new roof is a much more substantial structure than its predecessor. We have already noticed a difference when the sun shines and we are very taken with the shape and design of the wood. As an unexpected bonus, during the recent hot weather the orangery has not only remained cool, but produces an effect that is very similar to air conditioning. We must next thank all of Dave, Mark and Jess, from Dave’s initial calculations through to completion of the job, and on two fronts. Firstly, because all were courteous, respectful and patient. I say “patient” in that we are sure there were a number of occasions when one of us would have had explained what in particular was being done at any one time, only for the other to ask the self-same question a few hours later. Secondly, because of their professionalism and expertise. You have a first rate team supporting you. Also, we do not overlook Paul's overall guidance. First class. More...

We are delighted with our conservatory. We wanted a design which would complement our old stone house. So we were looking for traditional materials such as wood and stone. That led us to Richmond Oak, through an internet search. And we also had a design challenge to overcome, in that the conservatory had to be erected about 2 meters above ground level, as the land falls away. Richmond Oak's salesperson came up with a brilliant design which overcame our concerns.

The oak and glass materials are superb. The work was very professionally done, by meticulous and very friendly craftsmen.

I would recommend Richmond Oak without hesitation. Thank you Paul and team.

I can't tell you how pleased we are with the final product. What an improvement...it looks amazing. Pete and Marcus are complete professionals, nothing was too much trouble, and they obviously take such a pride in their work.

Thank you very much for all the hard work and dedication that has gone into creating our beautiful new orangery. You have captured the design I had imagined perfectly, and surpassed my expectations with it’s completion. The natural oak is truly breathtaking and really gives the room a wow factor. The whole team were extremely professional, a pleasure to have on the premises and very conscientious about their work. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone thinking of adding a conservatory or orangery to their home. Jane & Alan Lewis More...

Installation of 3 x window units and 1 x composite front door with full height side glazed units.
Regarding design/configuration: We ended up with different configurations of window units than we had originally requested, based on Richmond Oak's recommendation. This has proved to be very beneficial, from a practical day-to-day usage perspective. Great knowledgeable design guidance.

Project went to schedule and we were charged what we were quoted. Payment terms clearly laid out in the quote.

Installation team were professional and courteous. They worked through a spell of very bad weather.

Very happy with the finished result. Would recommend.

We were replacing an old south-facing conservatory that was too hot in summer and too cold in winter and therefore rarely used. Our contact with Paul at Richmond Oak was always friendly and he was always there to personally visit, phone or email. After considering several companies we went with Richmond Oak, mainly due to the use of oak that would look great and the good communication. The final product is an orangery that is used daily by the family all year round without feeling too hot or cold. We also get to enjoy the beauty of the oak. We have since used Richmond Oak for other jobs in our home. A great company to deal with. More...

We wanted to build an Orangery onto our Grade 2 listed building, our initial thoughts were to use painted hard work, However after contacting several companies, we found that Richmond Oak came out at a very competitive price to a well known competitor in hard wood. Oak would compliment the lovely Hamstone our home is built with so this sparked our interest.
Colin the representative from Richmond Oak was very knowledgeable and of his product and how the project should be designed and built, there was no hard sell, he took time to listen to what we wanted and worked with us . He also was sympathetic to the conservation officers criteria the resulting build was all that we dreamed of.
As things got going we liaised mainly with Paul, the head man at Richmond Oak, its fair to say he was available at almost any hour, nice to know whatever the worry he would be there to try and solve our hitches and allay our worries no matter how small or silly, this took a lot of stress out of what could have been a very worrying time.
From the deliverery of the Oak to the final fitting of the lantern roof Richmond Oaks attention to detail was phenomenal.Dave there workman worked the most amazing hours and was considerate and helpful to the other builders on site.
We had seventeen windows, two patio doors, two doors and an Orangery from this company, Paul took time to make sure all the latches , handles, hinges etc sat well with the rest of our home, not selling us what he wanted to make the most profit on or had left over, but took great care and attention sourcing what the customer wanted.
Its true to say we invested a huge amount in Richmond Oak but the product speaks for itself, should we ever need to do such a project again, this company would be our first port of call, we would expect a discount for being a returning customer !

After 9 years teaching workshop practice, architectural & engineering drawing, I went into the home improvement industry in 1979 and during the time I had a building company, during the 1980's became particularly interested in conservatories, as a means of getting light back into the rooms behind. Today, using the most efficient glazing and good ventilation our client's enjoy their glazed extensions all the year round and almost half our work is open-plan with the rooms behind. I enjoy going back to meet a pleased client after the work is complete and sharing praise with our team of hard working installers.

I started my own business to take control of my life and to work to my own standards and ethics, rather than having to work for others.
