Designed to bridge the gap between traditional glazed conservatories and a brick built extension, the Ultraframe LivinROOF can make a massive difference to your home.
Built around the market leading Ultraframe Classic roofing system your new LivinROOF can be designed as either a new structure, or fitted on top of an existing conservatory giving it a new lease of life.
The LivinROOF is incredibly flexible, you choose where you would like the glazed sections, giving you bigger glazed areas where required, it comes complete with the LivinROOM internal pelmet allowing you to add down-lights, and as an optional extra, the Ultraframe Cornice can be fitted to the outside hiding the guttering.
Changing your glass or polycarbonate roof for a solid one requires the LABC (Local Area Building Control) to be notified. This is true for all solid conservatory roofs. There are a few installation companies that claim their roof is PRE-APPROVED by building control and therefore they do not need to include the LABC in the installation process. This is not true, well not entirely! The Ultraframe LivinROOF, along side one or two similar products, are pre-approved but the LABC must be involved in the installation process.
The following items are what LABC will require;
- • The existing base and foundations must be suitable for carrying the additional loads of the new roof.
- • The existing frames must be fully reinforced with steel.
- • The conservatory is separated from the house by an exterior grade door¹.
- • If heating is provided to the conservatory from the existing house there must be independent temperature controls, an on/off switch for heating or thermostatic radiator valves in the conservatory.
To help with this, Ultraframe have joined forces with JHAI. JHAI are a building Control Services company and are authorised to issue Building Control certificates. Because JHAI are working with Ultraframe they already have all the information regarding the roof on record so they do not require a mountain of paperwork to pass the job. Instead JHAI will make two visits to site, one at the start, and one at the end of the project, and the best thing about it all. we deal with it all for you.
¹ If the conservatory and main home does not have an exterior grade divinging door, seperate SAP calculations can be provided to overcome this.
