What is a mansard orangery roof?
A mansard orangery roof is a roof design that is pitched on all sides. This creates a four-sided gambrel-style hip roof which uses glass panels or a roof lantern in the centre.
What are the advantages of choosing a mansard roof for your orangery?
There are a number of advantages and benefits to choosing a mansard roof as part of your orangery design. These advantages include:
- Matching your orangery to your home- a mansard roof can be created to match the same pitch as the original home. This allows for a softer, more sympathetic orangery extension that can be very beneficial for period properties or traditional homes.
- Stunning vaulted ceiling- a mansard roof brings the unique advantage of a visually interesting vaulted roof. This can be paired with roof lanterns or skylights to fill the room with light and create a stunning room with interior grandeur.
- Exterior design- a mansard roof for an orangery can improve the exterior design, adding visual interest and creating the real wow factor for your new structural glass home extension. This includes choosing the roof tiling as well as the colour to create an orangery that really stands out, in line with your exterior design style.
