We remain true to the architectural genres and nuances of many historical periods – emulating detail, proportion and visual correctness, balancing relationships between columns and entablatures whilst keeping glazing styles as delicate as possible.
We embrace the diversity of building styles throughout the various eras and carry forward an adventurous spirit in the design of all our conservatories and orangeries.
We are driven by design excellence and embrace traditional methods of construction, whilst working with advances in technology and materials. We aim to develop each of our buildings to include the correct level of detail and aesthetic appreciation both internally and externally.Period Styles
Our glazed structures are erected worldwide and consequently are subject to a wide variety of weather conditions and dramatic temperature changes. It is therefore essential that only the very best materials are selected and utilised within your structure. In addition, we have an exceptional team of highly skilled craftsmen who take pride in everything they produce.
Our unrivalled period detail and exceptionally fine glazing style of only 26mm in traditional true divided lights, provides the very finest in timber construction.
Pioneered 40 years ago our brilliantly engineered roof system, completely unique to Vale, combines timber with metal. With our strong engineering background, we are able to achieve greater strengths and spans, incorporating double glazed units between fine glazing rafters.
The advantages of a technologically advanced roof are achieved whilst recreating the slender appearance of the single glazed conservatories of the past, without compromising on traditional detail.
At Vale, we are unique in our manufacturing process in that each and every one of our structures whether large or small, is completely assembled in our pre-installation hall. When completed, it is taken apart for our pre-installation painting process.
Working this way not only ensures exceptional and precise accuracy of the build, but also significantly minimises the amount of time required at your home to carry out this most important aspect of your project.
Uniquely, Vale Garden Houses have their own in-house patternmaking department which we regularly call on due to the bespoke nature of our work. Their expertise is essential in providing the specialist detail required for many of our projects, incorporating mouldings and features to echo the period and architectural characteristics of the property.
The pattern making department will also be involved in hand carving timber bargeboards, columns and emblems to complement a specific detail on the property or client’s requirement.

Vale are one of the few companies to design orangeries with a true inset box gutter which is hidden behind the parapet to diminish the height of the roof.
The benefits of this construction are that the elegant proportions of the structure can be maintained, as well as concealing the lantern upstand and rafter ends of the interior flat roof method.All of our orangeries incorporate a true inset box gutter which is both architecturally superior and visually correct.
