Considerations When Choosing a Conservatory Roof Installer
Suppose you’re starting to think about home improvements. In that case, it’s natural to be concerned about the risks of hiring a Roof Installer: substandard workmanship, astronomical unforeseen bills, or even being left unfinished!
Unfortunately, the legal minimum competency requirements for installing a conservatory or replacing a roof are significantly lower than those for windows and doors. This allows underqualified companies to offer work that frequently falls short of expectations.
That is why it is important to identify a reputable company of trained and qualified builders who will complete the conservatory roof conversion on time and within budget, leaving you with a beautiful conservatory roof conversion of the highest quality.
This blog post will discuss factors to consider when choosing a conservatory roof installer. So, take a moment and read the following details.
Factors to Consider While Choosing Conservatory Roof Installer
Choosing the right installer is important when considering installing a conservatory roof. A conservatory roof installation requires expertise, attention to detail, and a commitment to quality. Here are some important considerations to keep in mind when choosing a conservatory roof installer:
Refurbishment or New Extension?
Solid conservatory roof systems are lightweight due to the architecture and engineering behind them. It ensures they can be used to restore the old conservatory and build new tiled roof conservatories.
People in the industry refer to this as a “retrofit,” and many homeowners choose to do so to convert old conservatories that are too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer into spaces that can be used all year.
If you want a brand-new conservatory with a solid roof, you’ll need to find a contractor who can do it all, from building the foundation and walls to fitting the frames and installing the roof. Spectrum Glazing specializes in this.
Many new-built conservatories with a high, tiled, or glazed roof will not require planning permission because they are protected by ‘permitted construction.’ There are only a few restrictions and requirements regarding location and size, which can be found on the government’s planning page.
To be classified as a conservatory rather than an extension, your conservatory must be separated from the main house by external quality walls and/or windows and doors that meet Building Regulation requirements.
Experienced Installer and Quality Material
Before beginning any work, ask for an original of your installer’s public liability insurance certificate. This protects you in the event of an accident on the job site. As the homeowner, you are responsible for anyone who works in your home if the proper insurance is not in place.
Any company offering to clad over and insulate the existing conservatory roof structure should be avoided at all costs. Most old roof structures were not designed to support the additional weight and are in danger of collapsing. Furthermore, without proper ventilation, any timbers used will rot, requiring the roof to be replaced sooner rather than later. This is also illegal because it goes against all building regulations.
New Windows and Doors
The energy efficiency of your conservatory can be increased by adding a solid roof. Still, if the window and door frames are very old and inefficient, you could not fully enjoy the advantages of your new roof. The ideal option for your home will be suggested to you by one of our professional installers.
