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 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
At Stratton Glass & Windows in Norfolk we believe that it is vital to maintain a comfortable environment in your conservatory, which is why we offer options on the Ultraframe roof to accommodate this.
Although modern conservatories have the option of highly insulated glass, to help reduce the power of the sun ventilation is key. The Ultraframe roof has ventilation built into the ridge to help ventilate your conservatory helping to create an all year round room. It is also worth considering opening windows, roof vents and energy efficient glazing.
Talk to one of our representatives for more information & options.
At Stratton we offer a wide range of glass roofs from a basic clear double glazed units to Saint Gobain BIOCLEAN™ glass to suit any budget.
All of our roofs are toughened for safety. The BIOCLEAN™ range come with self cleaning properties as standard.
Saint Gobain’s BIOCLEAN™ Comes in a choice of Neutral (Natura), Blue (Azura), Green (Aqua) and Bronze (Solara). They can achieve a centre pane insulation u value of 1W/m2K when accompanied with 4 Seasons glass giving fantastic all year round performance. In addition to this they achieve upto 78% heat reflection, 68% glare reduction and can block up to 94% of the suns UV rays thereby prolonging the life of your furniture.
Polycarbonate is a very popular glazing material for our conservatory roofs as it is low cost but also lightweight, durable and exceptionally strong so very easy to install cutting down on labour. Polycarbonate is upto 200 times stronger than glass. Alongside this it works to lessen the glare and heat from the sun.
Our polycarbonate comes in a choice of colours including clear, bronze, opal and Heatguard.
Heatguard limits the potential for heat building up inside your conservatory but also allows light to enter. Heatguard can reduce light transmission to 8% and solar transmission to 8% meaning that only 8% of the suns energy is transmitted through the sheet. It has insulation U value of 1.3 W/m2K
Your Local Ultraframe Livin Roof installer
Stratton Windows are proud installers of the all-new Ultraframe Livin roof. This system is an extremely versatile solid insulated roof, which gives you the flexibility of a traditional conservatory roof but with the benefits of a lightweight solid roof. This means that the solid roof construction can be used on P shape, T shape and other bespoke conservatory roof designs, which other systems cannot replicate.
The Livin roof allows you to create stylish and innovative rooms with as much glazing and plastered ceilings as you wish. This allows you to create a light living space whilst incorporating the practicalities of a solid roof such as shaded areas and high insulation. Meaning the roof can be passed through building control as a traditional extension.
The roof is constructed with aluminium rafters finished in RAL 7016 matt Grey, which are then glazed using thermally efficient insulated aluminium sheets, which are also RAL 7016. The glazing bar rafter is accompanied by an insulated bolstered bar to increase strength and thermal efficiency. In between the glazing bars the gap is filled with 90mm of insulation followed by a further 25mm of insulation, which is then plastered boarded and skimmed ready for your painted finish.
The edges are finished with the livin room pelmet. Both the roof and pelmet can feature down lights.
Your local Ultraroof 380 installer in Norfolk and Suffolk
At Stratton we are proud to offer the ALL NEW Ultraroof 380 incorporating the Ultratile 380.
This is an ideal option to replace your tired conservatory roof as it is lightweight, authentic looking and best of all has a rapid installation turnaround which means we can remove your old roof, keep your current frames in place (if you choose to keep them) and install your new roof getting it watertight in a day. This is almost 5 times quicker than the alternatives! Thereby cutting down on labour.
The simplistic design also means there is far less to go wrong. The roof is made from engineered timber followed by a waterproof memory membrane. This means we can glaze tile straight onto it. In addition the tiles come in 3 colours and are in large, pre cut sections meaning installation is incredibly quick.
As with all of the tiles they come in a slate finish. The harvest brown accompanies Norfolk’s traditional tiles perfectly.
As with all of the tiles they come in a slate finish. For a more modern look the Carbon grey is stunning. This can be matched with Grey fascia and 7016 window frames, which will really impress!

The ultraframe roof system comes with its own unique integrated ventilation. As warm air rises the ventilation system allows the air to escape helping to prevent condensation.
Highly insulated dome top caps
With Ultraframe’s innovative multi-chambered dome tops caps the Ultraframe roof system is the most insulated roof system on the market.
Cresting’s and finials
From Classic to minimalist low profile ridges the classic roof system can be designed to suit any taste. The options adjacent can be simply interchanged.
Colours and finishes
We have a range of standard foiled colours that have a wood grain finish to add a touch of authenticity to your PVCu conservatory. These include:
- RAL7016 Grey
- RAL8022 Black Brown
- RAL1011 Golden Oak
- RAL9003 White

However, if any of these colours don’t suit your taste the classic roof is available in any RAL colour.
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.

Ultraframe – Livin’ room orangery option
The Ultraframe roof system is incredibly flexible. With the Livin room feature we can create the aesthetics of an orangery extension without the added cost of engineered timbers, flat roofs and lintels. It works using a lightweight engineered steel section, which can be insulated and plastered. You can then decorate it in any colour the same as your house walls, when styles change.
In addition to this we can add down lights to the perimeter making the room appear 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!
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.
