A garden room era

Judging by this latest Garden Room installation by Artisan Conservatories, Windows and Doors, we could be entering the Garden Room era, as consumers look at alternative ways of adding valuable living space to their properties.

The Garden Room Roof has been exclusively developed by Prefix Systems and leading home improvement specialists such as Artisan, have been quick to embrace the development, which is suited for both new installations and for conservatory replacement projects. This latest case study in Lixwm, North Wales came about when the homeowner wanted additional living space more in keeping with the existing house design, yet with a real sense of style and grandeur

From the base upwards the project took just over two days to complete, with the Garden Room Roof incorporating four hips and two Velux rooflights. The windows, doors and rendering were designed to help match into the existing fabric of the house and the Envirotile exterior of the roof, closely resembled the existing roof to the property.

There are a number of key features of the Garden Room Roof from Prefix, which incorporates fixed joint technology, unlike conservatory roofs that are designed to accommodate an amount of flex. The Garden Room Roof is also highly energy efficient and for specifiers, the warm roof construction ensures fantastic insulation performance with a U-value of just 0.17 W/m2K. The fact that the panels are pre-prepared in the factory and the offer of first build assistance is also something Prefix believes will ignite the sector for alternative additional living space.

Chris Cooke, director at Prefix Systems comments: “We’ve spent a number of years developing our Garden Room Roof and next generation products, with incredible feedback from our customers such as Artisan. We’re now entering a new era for extended living space and we aim to be taking a lead in terms of product development.”

He continues: “Artisan are a very progressive business and for them to praise our Garden Room Roof so highly has really enthused us. Prefix are fortunate to have a number of dynamic customers like Artisan who are actively involved in our product development programme.”

Prefix Systems is the UK’s largest independent fabricator of conservatory roofs with a history that dates back to 1996. Run by Chris Baron and Chris Cooke, the leading Ultraframe fabricator operates from a head office in Clayton-Le-Moors, Lancashire and from two further manufacturing sites in Northamptonshire and Swansea.

Prefix is the only conservatory fabricator in the UK with a number of regional fabrication facilities which provides the necessary expertise for the local market and the added support that goes with it. Prefix was arguably the first fabricator in the UK to provide a wide range of laminated colours which now extends to 10, along with a unique cast iron effect for gutters.

The company also has considerable expertise in portal frames and in the retro-fit market. There is an estimated replacement market of 3million conservatories and with their Retro-fix and Multibeam products developed with Window Widgets, Prefix is set to take a lead in addressing this important market sector.
