This lovely conservatory was built to replace an existing timber lean too which was long over due for replacing in Whitstable. The old conservatory had several leaks and was unbearable in the summer due to the heat build up and unusable in the winter due to it being too cold.
The A rated frames will help to keep the heat in when the heating is on and the 35mm Heatshield polycarbonate will reflect 99% u v radiation making it a lot cooler in the summer months with a u value 1.2 which is the same as our glass units.
With the new French doors open and larger top opening windows there we be plenty of fresh air which will make this space a lot more practical and a room which we be used all year.
The completed job took 6 days to complete including taking the old one one down and recycling the old roof bars.
Thursday and Friday Pete and Charlie fitted this glass roof for Mrs Tubb in Whitstable. The old polycarbonate roof which was very noisy when it rained and also made the lounge quiet dark was removed and replaced with this glass roof.
A complete new roof was installed with Aqua green bio clean glass and new raked frames with panels were installed to the side frames to complete the job.
The new glass roof has given an old conservatory a complete new look and brightened up the lounge as well as the conservatory.
Last week I completed this conservatory in Whitstable for Mr & Mrs Kelsal .The Edwardian style green tinted glass roof sits nicely between the garage and house wall supported by a box gutter on either side. A set of French doors and side lights which fold right back on the rear and a window frame on a dwarf wall to the front complete the structure. A door opening was cut into the side wall to allow access from the lounge. All the walls were insulated and plaster boarded with a top coat of plaster to make this conservatory feel more cozy.
Lee the electrician took care of the electrics with down lights and power socket and Mr & Mrs Kelsal painted the walls them selves and used their own tiler to tile the floor .
I also replaced the bathroom window above the conservatory as this would be difficult to maintain over the glass roof so a UPVC window was installed to over come any more painting.
The blinds were installed last by Howards Blinds in Whitstable to complete the installation.
Despite the poor weather this week Pete and Charlie have manged to dodge the rain and get this conservatory built for Mrs Burge in Chestfied. It was time to replace the old lean too conservatory which had started to leak . The new doors were made bigger and centralized and a Blue tinted glass roof installed to let more light in.
Clive built 3 new steps and next job was to get some hand rails to make it a little easier for Mrs Burge getting to and from the garden.
The whole job took 5 days to complete including new Fascias and Soffits to the side elevation.
Working in Chartham with Pete and Charlie replacing an old conservatory roof for Mr & Mrs Lodge . The old roof was completely removed leaving the frames in place and reinstalling a new Global roofing system with triple glazed units with a green anti sun to help reflect any glare and achieving a u value .7. This will greatly improve the performance of the glass compared to the old clear units some of which had broken down.
I suggested changing the style from jack rafters to a fanned hip which improves the look for this conservatory with less glazing bars and more glass.
The whole job took just over two days to complete and all the old roof was recycled.
Finished Lyssa and Patrick’s conservatory today in Wormshill. The finished job looked great, the cream colour of the conservatory matched the existing windows beautifully and blended in well with the house. The integral blinds inside the units work well to reduce any glare and keep the temperature down come next summer.
The Pilkington Active Blue glass roof with help to retain heat in the winter and reduce solar gain in the summer. Patrick has had electric heating installed in the floor to keep him warm this coming winter with a tiled floor which will complement this conservatory very well.
I suggested putting some down lights in the soffit along the back where the box gutter meets the fascia and a couple of 3 way lights on the ridge for lighting.
The only thing left to do now is add some furniture and sit and enjoy the lovely view across the open fields and watch the cows go by.
Working with Clive the brick layer we got Patrick and Lyssa conservatory base finished on Wednesday. With Clive laying 750 bricks on the last day! Ill be back when the conservatory frames and roof are ready to install.
Started this conservatory base for Patrick and Lyssa in Wormshill digging the footings with this machine and loaded 2 x 6 yard skips by wheel barrow. Once the footing are dug we will mass fill the footing with concrete and reinforced steel rods, ready to build up to damp with the wall and then prepare the oversite with 100mm crushed concrete, 50mm sand, plastic membrane and 100mm concrete.Once this is finished the 450mm high walls can be built.
Today I got Neils roof finished in Birchington replacing his old lean too polycarbonate roof with a more up to date double hipped Edwardian glass roof and box gutter. The old roof made the conservatory dark and gloomy but now the new roof lets so much more light in making it feel a lot bigger and brighter. We also replaced the Fascia, Soffitts and Guttering above as these would be difficult to maintain.
The glass roof will be warmer in the Winter with a 1.1 u value and cooler in the summer and also less noisy when it rains when compared to the old polycarbonate.
The new roof total transforms the look of Neils conservatory making it feel bigger inside and more useable all year round.
