A stunning single storey extension installed by Steve Gill Joinery has recently been completed, showcasing the WARMroof hybrid roof and aluminium glazing elements supplied by Prefix Systems.
The initial brief from the home owner was to replace a staircase but, this led into them asking Steve Gill to help design an inspirational new extended living area. They wanted an extension that could be used all year round and that would offer a panoramic view of the garden.
The installation was 4.4m wide x 3.4m in projection and harnessed anthracite grey full height fixed aluminium frames either side, and bi-folding doors to the front projection. The WARMroof included a deeper soffit overhang design, and was dressed with a matching exterior grade hardwood and completed with spotlights. Spotlights also featured on the internal pelmet with the triple-glazed hybrid elements framed with the OPUS timber claddings and two hanging crystal chandeliers adding further to the designer appeal of the new living space.
To the outside, slate cladding was used as a contrasting alternative to brick of which was no longer available as an exact match and the plan was to use the same system in the garden for raised areas. The job has been such a success that a request has been made from a neighbour for something similar in the coming months.
Steve Gill commented: ‘As a time served joiner I knew that this project required careful attention to detail and outstanding materials, and this hybrid roof from Prefix Systems is very much unique, well-designed and effortless to install. With all the aluminium glazing also supplied by them I was able to benefit from coordinated deliveries of materials and outstanding customer and technical support.’
Chris Cooke of Prefix Systems concluded: ‘It’s a stunning installation and a perfect example of an extended modern living space that can be used all year round. With a single point of order and full technical support it’s great that we can support skilled craftsmen on building projects such as Steve Gill, as well as installation companies across the UK.’
