Many homeowners just don’t know what to do with an old conservatory or how to transform it into a functional home extension. Here at Supercraft Windows, we have put together a few of our top tips for transforming your conservatory in 2021.

 

  • Beware of low prices. If one quote is much lower than the rest, you may be inadvertently buying a Clad-over roof. If you’re unsure about the price, ask for more details about the roof construction. 
  • Be sure to compare roof weight, U-Values, and wind and snow load tolerances.
  • When you install a solid roof, it’s important to design in-glass panels within your solid roof. This ensures your new room is bright, as well as warm and cosy during the cooler months. 
  • Always ask to see a copy of your building regulations conformance certificate  BEFORE the build starts. You will need this if you ever sell your house. 
  • When you book your installation, plan to be at home, be vigilant and ensure all beams and bars are removed BEFORE any materials are added. 
  • Before booking an installation, do your research. Look for accreditations, endorsements and reviews. 
  • Make sure you’re covered. Ensure your roof and the installation are both guaranteed and that the guarantees are backed by quality insurance.
