Location: Clitheroe
System: House Extension

The Tapping’s purchased their detached property in a quiet cul-de-sac situated on the outskirts of Clitheroe. In 2012 the Tappings started to realise their existing conservatory was not living up to their needs – they were unable to use it in the winter as it was far too cold not to mention that it leaked during heavy downpours. Overall, it was an aspect to their home that proved to be detrimental to their comfort and peace of mind.

The noise of the rain on the polycarbonate roof meant it was difficult to sit in and hold a conversation, then during the summer months it was overwhelmingly hot, in fact the most use they were getting out of it was to grow plants. After much discussion the couple considered the idea of moving home to increase their living space. However, they did not want to move so therefore considered the option of transforming their existing conservatory with a brick pillar orangery.

Jason Explained:

“One of the main reasons for choosing this property was because it had a conservatory, Becky is a keen gardener and the idea of having the additional space which brought the outside in really appealed to us”

High Performance House Extensions

Having met Nigel Grant uPVC and Prefix Systems previously who had installed new windows and a door at their property, they approached him to give them a quote to replace the conservatory.  They discussed the options of with the couple and the key benefits versus a traditional build, the fact that they were able to choose from a variety of colours, the use of a Conservaglass roof and the thermal performance of the extension all measured up and spurred the couple on.

This also included a visit to the Ultraframe showroom in Clitheroe to see one for themselves.  During their visit they were extremely impressed with the technology and innovation that our extensions were able to offer. We invest heavily into the research and development of our product range, which enables them to stand at the forefront of performance, appearance and design. This way, you won’t have to settle for less.

Environmentally Friendly House Extensions

The Tapping’s are very environmentally aware and are always looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint, so armed with all the information they required, they reached the decision to place an order for Thermally Efficient Extension with Nigel.  Content with the current size of their existing conservatory and not wishing to take up any more garden space, they were able to utilise the base already there. This not only reduced the cost but also accelerated the installation process.

The installation of these house extensions, with roof and components supplied by Ultraframe specialist, Prefix Systems, took just a few days to complete and when talking to Nigel about the process he was impressed with the ease of the installation. Whilst he had to make some slight alterations to accommodate the linked garage the only hitch he encountered was how he was going to incorporate the cat flap for the Tapping’s much loved pet.

Jason concluded:

“If it wasn’t for Ultraframe's Thermally Efficient Extension, we probably would have moved”.
