Conservatory vs Extension in Manchester?

If you’re looking to add extra living space to your home, the first big decision to make is whether to opt for a conservatory or extension. Extensions in Manchester are very popular these days as they offer a year-round living space which can be enjoyed whatever the weather, and will also add value to your home improvement project in Manchester.

Things to consider when thinking about adding a home extension in Manchester are: what do you want to use the room for, Planning Permission/Building Regulations for Manchester extensions and the type of roof you will have. An extension is usually typified by the fact that there are no locking doors between the new living space and your existing home. It is also generally agreed that an extension is defined by the roof being solid – possibly with some glazed areas – but not all glazed as with a conservatory.

A conservatory in Manchester is a different option in that the roof will be largely glazed as opposed to largely solid.  You may have to consider the often-cool climate of Manchester when considering a conservatory to ensure that you choose a specification of the conservatory that will ensure it is warm enough during the colder months of the year.

Manchester home extension ideas and inspiration

If you’ve decided to opt for a home extension in Manchester, you’ve made a great choice and there are now lots of exciting decisions to make about your home improvement project. The first thing to think about is which room of your home your extension will come off and what the new space will be used as. Many home extensions are used as open plan kitchen/living/dining spaces, allowing your family to live, eat and entertain all together in the one large space.

In terms of roof choices for an extension there are various options:

  1. Flat roof with flat skylight's
  2. Flat roof with lantern skylight's
  3. Pitched tiled roof
  4. Pitched tiled roof with glazed panels or Velux type windows
  5. Lean-to roof with glazed panels

It’s important when planning an extension in Manchester to think about the overall look you want and this may help you to decide on the roof type. Flat roofs are a very contemporary option and the addition of flat or lantern skylights not only provides a sense of drama but also ensures that your home is flooded with plenty of natural light. Pitched roofs will make your new extension feel even bigger but are not always possible due to planning permission requirements – your local Building Control office will be able to advise you further on this.

No matter what type of extension roof you choose for your extension in Manchester, there is an Ultraframe tiled or solid roofing system that can make your home extension dreams a reality.
