A garden room refurbishment

When the owner of a tired, polycarbonate glazed conservatory looked to make an upgrade to a more energy efficient living area, they chose the impressive Garden Room roof from Prefix Systems. This product the company claims, is set to re-define the way we look at extended living space.

There are an estimated 500,000 conservatories in the UK in need of urgent repair and in the vast majority of cases it is the conservatory roof that looks tired, or has failed. Consumers have the choice to live with a second rate living area, invest in a new energy efficient conservatory roof or even upgrade to the latest generation and energy efficient Garden Room.

This case study in Manchester involved the removal of a 3.5m x 3.5m mahogany Georgian conservatory roof that was glazed in polycarbonate, followed by the installation of the Garden Room roof by Your Choice Windows from Bury. The new roof offered a 0.17 u-value and in the words of the homeowner ‘provided an immense improvement in thermal performance’, along with the obvious far better visual appeal.

The whole project took two days from start to finish to the delight of both Your Choice and the homeowner. The Garden Room roof from Prefix has been designed with quick and easy installation in mind, with all of the roof panels pre-fabricated by Prefix and the added offer of first build assistance.

Your Choice commented: ‘This was our first installation of the Garden Room roof and what a joy it was to fit. This is going to be one of the most exciting products we have ever launched.’

Chris Cooke, director at Prefix Systems concluded: ‘We’ve got a huge interest in our Garden Room roof, something we’ve spent a lot of time on. The market is changing and we’re actively looking to take a lead in the market for extend living areas through the Garden Room and other new developments.’
