Energy Efficient Conservatories

Here at Oakland, we have hand selected a diverse range of conservatories to be used all 365 days a year. With this in mind, you have to view our range of conservatories as cost effective extensions for your Essex home. Use the added space as a larger dining room, a contemporary styled office or even somewhere for the kids to play when the weather turns British.

But won’t it get too cold in the winter to use our conservatory? Not a chance! Our conservatories are fitted with exceptional double glazed units, designed to utilise both your homes and the natural energy from the sun.

The double glazed units fitted to your conservatory in Essex work by trapping a layer of air between the two panes of glass. The gap separating the two panes of glass has to be carefully measured, too large and the air will circulate and the in built double glazing technology will be redundant. The trapped layer of air acts as a thermally efficient barrier, preventing unwanted cold air from entering your home and your expensive heating from leaving.

As a family run business, we know all too well that you can never put a price on the security of yourself and your loved ones. As home improvement experts, we have a duty to protect your family against would be burglars and potential home intruders. To do this, we ensure our conservatories are designed to be as security conscious as possible. As well as fitting the most robust stainless steel locks on the current market. So, how do we partner stainless steel locks and design to maximise the security of your Essex conservatory? Giving you and your family complete protection.

Essentially, we fit all robust locks and reinforced hinges into the actual conservatory frame. Behind a thick layer of reinforced glass. The glass acts as a protective cover for the locks and hinges, keeping them far away from meddling hands and corrosive weather conditions. Ensuring your conservatory retains its effortless functionality and security values.

secured by design essex

Secured By Design

Secured By Design was established in 1989. Secured By Design is the title given to police projects focusing on design and security for new and refurbished homes. The objective of SBD is to design crime out homes throughout Essex and the remainder of the UK. This is done by making sure that the design is physically strong enough to withstand a reasonable to substantial effort to gain forced entry.

Our entire range of composite doors all carry the police approved Secured By Design stature.

Composite Doors Maintenance

Unlike traditional wooden doors, our composite doors require little to no maintenance to retain their unbeatable energy efficiency and security. Oakland recommend an occasional wash once in a while, just to help your door keep its effortless functionality by removing any grit and dust which has inevitably built up in throughout weather conditions.

Composite doors are built and designed to replicate the appearance of wooden doors. The main difference being that composite doors will not need anywhere near the amount of work that wooden ones will.

For example, if you choose a wooden door you’ll have to go through the hardship of reserving an entire weekend to twinge your back out whilst removing the heavy door from its frame. Then there’s the joy of treating the wood after a harsh winter, sanding it down and refitting it to the frame – most likely hurting your back again.

composite door essex

Composite Doors Energy Efficiency

Composite doors are amongst most energy efficient products on the current home improvements. Why? They are triple sealed to minimise the effects of damaging weather conditions like rain, sleet and ice. The doors themselves are exceptionally thick, durable and dense. Furthermore, all of our composite door frames are fitted with a high quality sealant around the perimeter of the door, minimising the amount of heat escaping from your Essex home.

Composite Doors Security

As expert home improvement engineers, we recognise our responsibility in providing all of our customers with security focused composite doors. Have total peace of mind that our composite doors come with a whopping ten-year guarantee. What makes our composite doors one of the most trusted safe on the market?

The design and quality of our composite doors work in perfect harmony to increase the security of your Brentwood home. Firstly, we only use the highest quality sophisticated multi point stainless steel locks to ensure the safety and well-being of yourself and your loved ones. These robust locks have helped our doors gain Secured By Design status, recognised by the British Police.

The second reason why our composite doors are so reliable is the design of the doors themselves. All hinges and locks are built into the frame of the door, keeping them out of site and out of mind. Our theory is a simple one, if a potential burglar can’t see the locks or hinges – how do they know which part of your door to target?


Composite Doors Maintenance

The clever design of our composite doors also aids you. Our locks and hinges are built into the frame and door, preventing them from coming into contact from harmful and corrosive weather conditions. Furthering the life expectancy of the product.

Oakland home improvements recommend basic maintenance once every couple of months to ensure that your composite door retains its effortless functionality and pleasing looks. A hot soapy sponge to clean out any collected dirt is more than enough to keep your composite door in tip top condition for many years to come.

As we all know, composite doors are designed to replicate a traditional wooden timber door. The reason that our customers favour composites is that wooden doors famously cause more problems than they are worth. Wooden doors are prone to rotting, warping and discolouration. Because of this, timber doors need care and attention – which involves removing the heavy door from the hinges, putting your back out in the process and hiring an experienced carpenter to rework your door to fit into the frame.  A time consuming and expensive process.

Composite doors capture the elegance of wooden doors minus the hassle. Your composite door is guaranteed against warping, discolouration and cracking for an entire decade! Making them the favoured choice over wooden doors.

Double Glazing Braintree

Would Your Braintree Property Benefit From Double Glazing?

Welcome to Oakland Home Improvements. Braintree’s local family ran double glazing company. We have over thirty years of experience in fitting the highest quality double glazing in Braintree and the surrounding areas. Throughout the years, the quality of our work has given us a respectable reputation as expert double glazing installers in, Essex. Why? Because Oakland Home Improvements fit double glazing to the very highest standard to both Residential and Commercial properties.


energy efficient double glazing
Unlike a lot of other double glazing engineers, Oakland offer a full service. When needed, we give expert advice and a technical survey before installation. In short, Oakland offer double glazing in uPVC, Aluminium and Timber Windows. We also fit our double glazing to made to measure, bespoke conservatories.
Questions are. What are the benefits of double glazing? Can double glazing save you money? How does Double Glazing work?

Double Glazing; Benefits and Cash

Let’s tackle the first two questions now, as one. One of the major benefits of investing in double glazing is the money you will save on your energy bills. According to an in depth case study carried out by Energy Saving Trust, every type of property benefits from Double Glazing.
For this article, let’s take A rated Energy Efficient Windows. Again, going by the data available on the Energy Saving Trust’s website. Data taken from properties where all windows have been upgraded to double glazing.

Detached Property: £120 – £160
Semi Detached: £85 – £110
Mid Terrace: £65 – £90
Bungalow: £55 – £75
Flat: £40 – £60

These savings are based on typical gas-heated homes, taken from Energy Saving Trust.org 

It goes without saying that all Windows, Double Glazing and single pane, will not retain 100% of their energy. However, these figures perfectly illustrate just how much money energy efficient double glazing can save you. As it stands, highest level of savings is £160, the price of your car insurance? And the lowest, £40, the price of a meal for two? But we can take this further, considering that we back the Eurocell ten year guarantee.

Now the picture starts to change. Highest level of savings is £1,600, the price of a very respectable all inclusive holiday. The lowest savings is still a massive £400, the cost of a brand new television.

Further Benefits Of Double Glazing

Double glazing decreases the size of your carbon footprint, something we should all be pushing to do. For example, our uPVC double glazing is 100% recyclable. So, in many, many years time when your uPVC double glazing is removed and replaced. You can rest assure that the materials used to create your uPVC window can and will be melted down and be used again.

Fed up with the loud noise of the outside world? Double glazing insulates your house acoustically. Minimising unwanted noise that pollutes your home, keeping the disrupting noises of car horns and general clatter outside. Oakland Home Improvements only install the highest quality Double Glazing.

Now the big one, how does Double Glazing work?

thermally efficient double glazing

How Does Double Glazing Work?

In essence, the technology behind double glazing is fairly simplistic. Essentially, the two panes of glass trap a wall of air between them. The gap is too narrow for the air to circulate, so instead it forms a thermal barrier. The thermal barrier stops cold air from entering your home. It also heavily reduces warm air from leaving your property, hence the term thermal barrier.
