BACKGROUND

After living in a home with a garden room for many years, Mr & Mrs Goddard found that they missed the light and airy feel of this type of living space when they moved into their beautiful new build chalet bungalow, and soon decided to extend their home.

As the house boasts beautiful views across the fields, they wanted a style that would really maximise the views and a system that would mean that they could use the new room all year round. After seeing the Ultraroof tiled roof system in a local showroom, they immediately knew that this was the tiled roof for them, as Mrs Goddard explained: “We have downsized into our new build bungalow but realised that we missed having a garden room. After seeing the Ultraroof system and how well the tiles complemented those of our home, we knew it would be the perfect solution for us.”

 

DRAMATIC ROOF SPACE

After finding their local Ultraframe installer, SEHBAC, Mr & Mrs Goddard began to think about which style would best complement their home. As Ultraroof can be configured into any shape and size shape – and never needs a tie bar – they were able to go for a gable style which perfectly matched the roofline of their home. Incorporating two of Ultraroof’s full height glazing panels ensured that the interior remained light and bright, while also providing a stunning feature in the roof. Explaining more about their chosen style, Mrs Goddard said: “Our new extension provides us with a large extra living space that we are delighted with. It is built off our lounge so hugely extends our main living area and allows us to enjoy the views. The height of the gable roof which is tie bar free, and the full length glass panels in the roof make for a very dramatic and interesting roof space, while also making sure it is always light and bright. It also allowed us to have a huge picture window to frame our view which is delightful. Visitors to our home always love it – as do we!”

 

BEAUTIFUL, YET TECHNICALLY ADVANCED

Mrs Goddard is clearly thrilled with how beautiful their new Ultraroof extension looks, but she was also keen to share how its market-leading thermal performance has impacted on how they use their new living space: “While our new extension looks amazing, it is also very technically advanced which means that it’s beautifully warm, no matter how cold it gets outside. This means that we use the space every day – it’s been a fantastic addition to our home. We are especially pleased with the full height glazing panels which add a unique look and keep the interior light. They are glazed with self-cleaning glass so we don’t need to worry about getting up to the top of the roof to clean them – all the hard work is done for us each time it rains! Our installer SEHBAC did a great job and communicated about each stage of the installation process which was very professional. We are so glad that we chose Ultraroof.”
