AND THE WINNER IS....... NIDDAL WINDOWS
SYSTEM: ULTRASKY ROOF
ULTRA INSTALLER: NIDDAL WINDOWS
Mr & Mrs King live in a beautiful 4-bed detached family home just outside of the picturesque Yorkshire town of Knaresborough. While their home was already large with an existing conservatory, the family wanted to add extra space to allow them to enjoy the open-plan style of living that is so popular, as Mr King explained: “While we already had a conservatory, it was much smaller than our new extension. We wanted to create a large open plan living/dining/kitchen area that would become the hub of our home and having used Niddal Windows for projects on our previous homes, we didn’t hesitate to use them again.”
The King family were keen to add a large, contemporary glass roof to their extension and after visiting the Niddal showroom and seeing the Ultraframe Ultrasky roof with its sleek lines, they knew that this was the roofing system for them.
The team at Niddal designed a spectacular Orangery extension that is over 6.5m wide, featuring an anthracite grey Ultrasky roof and several sets of bi-fold doors. As Ultrasky is the strongest glazed roof on the market, large spans like this can be designed with total confidence – especially as each roof is specifically engineered for its exact location using the postcode to calculate wind and snow loads. A 2-tier flat Cornice adds a further contemporary detail and exterior lighting has been added which shows off the extension to stunning effect in the evenings.
Explaining more about the project, Mr King said: “When we started to think about demolishing our existing conservatory and creating a large, open plan extension, we knew that the roof was key. We wanted something that looked modern and after doing our research, we soon found that Ultraframe was the best option, with the Ultrasky roof fitting the bill perfectly. We wanted a roof with more glass and less bars and this is exactly what Ultrasky gave us. The team at Niddal provided excellent customer service and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them – and Ultraframe – to anyone else who is looking to start a similar project on their home. We love the extra open-plan space and the light it has brought into the back of our home is fantastic. We have exactly the room we had visualised and are very pleased with it.”
Russell Mc Cabe of Niddal Windows, said: “Having worked with Mr & Mrs King on projects on their previous homes, it was fantastic to be contacted again to work on this amazing Orangery as we pride ourselves on working on repeat business and recommends. Everyone loves a good before and after and this one was a huge transformation. While it wasn’t without its challenges - including removing a 6m stretch of the rear of house and inserting structural steel beams - our team worked hard to create exactly what the King family had envisaged and we’re pleased that they’re so thrilled with their beautiful new living space. We always enjoy projects using the Ultrasky roof as it’s so quick to install – we save between 1 and 2 days on every installation compared with using a traditional Orangery roof. Plus the fact that our customers can personalise it to their exact requirements with add-ons like the Cornice and Internal Pelmet is fantastic as so many people want their home improvement project to be that little bit unique.”
