What are the benefits of a Sunroom?
Adding a fully insulated UPVC sunroom in Glasgow, Lanarkshire and any other area throughout central Scotland is one way of creating a bright and comfortable new living space to your home, but as there are so many options these days it can become mind boggling trying to make up your mind which design to go for as there are standard designs such as an Edwardian or Victorian which are built more than any other styles to the much simpler lean to design as well as many other designs and pressure from a sales person pushing you to sign a contract or choose a design can make it even harder this is where the 3D laptop design in your living room really helps you to choose the perfect sunroom for you most importantly without any pressure or hassle.
With all the recent changes in sunrooms building regulations there are more and more conservatory companies not entirely up to date on these ever changing sunroom regulations and some who quite simply could not care less and are happy to sell you anything rather than something that is the right product for your home and garden. One main change is that all sunrooms must be insulated whether they are being heated or not, these changes have been incorporated due to the high volume of so called sunroom specialists advising their clients that they can put heating into a sunroom upon receipt of the completion certificate even though the sunroom has been built with very little insulation in it.
We are here to ensure that you receive the correct guidance on the design, build type, construction method of your proposed sunroom build and most of all maintaining that you choose the correct firm to construct your sunroom at a fair and reasonable cost to you.
Conservatory With Solid Roof / Sunroom
We have now recently-introduced a Solid Roof system which is now fully approved and registered by the LABSS (Local Authority Building Standards Scotland) as checked for compliance with Scottish Building Regulations under certificate number EWS550 so we can now provide tile effect sunroom quotes for this fantastic system Many people now are choosing to use flat or raised roof glass cupolas’ to create a fantastic living space with these beautiful glass features built within the roof itself creating a more contemporary sunroom extension.
We can supply you with a free quote for construction of a completely new sunroom with a solid roof or quote to replace an existing conservatory roof with a retrofit solid roof which involves a statutory obligation to submit a Building Regulations application. The scope the updated certificate number EWS550 now covers England, Wales and Scotland to facilitate mandatory legal technical compliance procedures for site locations in all three countries.
The thermal performance specification to meet Scottish Building Regulations is more demanding and the required U-value of 0.15W/m2K (calculated to BS EN ISO 6946:2007) is achieved by supplementing the Solid Roof’s external finish with a breathable membrane and 142mm Kingspan TEK structural insulated panel roof assembly and with further insulation of Kooltherm K18 insulated dry lining plasterboard internal finish to provide an additional non-bridged layer which is 42.5mm overall in element thickness.
