Ultraroof 380 Construction
The Ultraroof 380 is a lightweight pre-fabricated roofing system that allows us to make your new extension watertight in around 4 days. The lightweight construction can be supported by window and door frames with no need for supporting posts. The prefabricated panels also achieve fantastic insulation values as low as 0.16W/m2°C. The roof also allows the integration of glazed sections to allow light into the extension and adjoining rooms making it look fantastic!
We offer 3 colour options for our authentic slate effect tiles including harvest brown, carbon grey and terra brick to suit any Norfolk & Suffolk property. For more information or to see a sample of the tiles please call us or visit our showrooms in Diss or Long Stratton.
Stratton Glass and Windows have been trading since 1979. Over the years we have collated a great knowledge with regard to the planning requirements on conservatories.
The majority of conservatories don’t require planning due to the relaxed permitted developments. However, our trained staff can assess the requirement and if need be we can administer the application from the plans to the written documentation we are here to simplify the process allowing you do design the conservatory of your dreams without the stress of planning
A standard conservatory comes with plastic gutters, which some people don’t like. Ultraframe’s innovative aluminium cornice options not only hide the standard plastic gutters but also add elegance and style to the classic conservatory roof. The cornice can be provided in a variety of colours including white, grey, cream, chartwell green and more. The cornice comes in 3 options; Classic, 2 high flat and 3 high flat. Click on the options above to see more.
The classic aluminium cornice is a timeless feature, which adds a contemporary style to any conservatory suiting a variety of homes. Ask our sales team for more information regarding the cornice features.
The 2 high aluminium cornice is the most recent addition to the classic roof. It is designed to imitate an orangery look without the high cost. It can be applied to any of our roofs for a modern & stylish finish. Ask our sales team for more information regarding the cornice features.
Along with the 2 high aluminium cornice, the 3 high cornice is the most recent addition to the classic roof. It is designed to imitate an orangery look without the high cost. It can be applied to any of our roofs for a modern stylish & finish. Ask our sales team for more information regarding the cornice features.
All of our solid roofs include an internal pelmet. The pelmet is insulated and plastered so you can decorate it the same as your house walls, when styles change.
We can add down lights to the pelmet making the room warm, cosy and stylish.
Ultraframe – Loggia posts
Bringing the orangery pillar design into the 21st century the loggia posts have a modern look followed by fantastic thermal efficiency. As they are prefabricated they remove the requirement for expensive brickwork but in line with the innovative design we can achive an A+ rated conservatory extension allowing you to enjoy your Loggia all year round!
The Loggia columns can be used on the corners or in between frames to break up the large glass areas traditionally associated with conservatories. This gives you more of an extension than a conservatory.
They also allow you to decorate the inside of your conservatory in any colour.
The Loggia columns can be fluted to imitate the traditional timber orangery design or plain for a more modern simplistic feature.
The columns fit in with the cornice as they are painted in the same RAL and both made from aluminium.
They are made from engineered timber and preformed honeycomb insulation, making them more insulated than their competition. So much so they can achieve an A+ rating!
At Stratton we can install just the frames and glass but we also offer all the trades to complete your conservatory taking away the requirement of sourcing individual trades. We can provide the base work along with the brickwork. In addition to this we also offer electrics, flooring, plastering, rendering and a decoration service.
Stratton’s modern innovative conservatories have options to allow you to use your conservatory all year round.
In the winter it is imperative to insulate your conservatory. Our bases are insulated along with the cavity walls. In addition to this the side elevations can be specified from C rated all the way up to A++ rated, Loggia columns can also be specified to contribute further to the insulation.
Obviously the roof plays a major factor as warm air rises up the roof needs to prevent it from escaping. On the classic roof the dome glazing bars are multi-chambered. These small air pockets help insulate the roof.
However, the main factor is the glazing area. High performance glass or even a lightweight roof is best at insulating. Select “glazing options” for more details.
In the summer the roof glazing plays a big part in keeping your conservatory cool. Again see the glazing options for more details. Ventilation in the side frames needs to be taken into account.
In summary Stratton conservatory extensions can be used all year round as long as the correct components are specified.
Under new regulations that came into effect from 1 October 2008 adding a conservatory to your home comes under permitted development meaning that no permission is required. However, there are certain exceptions to this rule so it is always worth checking with your local council. At Stratton we can help advise you and run through the planning processes.
Conservatories are usually exempt from building regulations as long as they meet the following conditions:
• They are built at ground level and are less than 30 square metres in floor area
• At least half of the new wall and three quarters of the roof is either glazed or translucent material
• The conservatory is separated from the house by external quality door(s).
• Glazing and any fixed electrical installations comply with the applicable building regulations requirements
All of our windows, doors and conservatories are made to measure on order. Once an order is placed our surveyor will contact you to take an accurate survey and draw up plans for the factory to manufacture your new conservatory roof.
Our lead time is usually between 6-8 weeks. However, it is worth speaking to the office for a more accurate leadtime.
You can organise with us to attend site to provide you with a quotation for your specified roof and guide you through the choices.
Once you have confirmed your design, an order is placed with us and our surveyor takes accurate measurements for manufacture. Once your roof is ready for installation we will arrange for a convenient date for installation.
Our roofs come in a wide variety of designs to suit any size and space. Call us for a free, no obligation quotation.
All solid roof structures come under building regulations. Whether you are upgrading your existing conservatory from a poly-carbonate / glass roof to a solid roof or building a new solid roof extension, building regulations always apply. The process is very simple and can carry out this requirement on your behalf.
