What Types of House Extensions are Available?
Glass Roof Extensions
A glass roofing home extension is a way to stay on top of building regulations, whilst still creating a space you can enjoy all year round.
Super insulated columns are a fantastic means of keeping your extension warm during winter. They retain heat inside the extension and can be more effective than housing bricks.
A glass roof extension isn’t always a glazed conservatory, it’s built with more structural integrity and with higher levels of thermal efficiency.
A Hybrid Solid and Glazed Extension Roof
For those who can’t decide between a solid roof and a glazed roofing system for their extension, the Livinroof by Ultraframe offers a unique mixture.
Visually it keeps some of the aesthetics of a glazed roof externally, with a seamless transition between insulated extension roofing and high quality double glazing.
It’s market leading technology gives you the best of both worlds, a full extension whilst capturing all the light needed for a modern sunroom.
Tiled Roof Extensions
The Ultraroof 380’s solid extension roof achieves its lightweight status though it’s use of synthetic slate as opposed to heavy roofing tiles.
In doing so, the Ultraroof 380 is quicker to install than a tiled roof extension and you’ll still benefit from kinspan insulation and double or triple glazed sealed units.
The colour of your Ultraroof 380 exterior can also be matched to the existing
