Selected from thousands of entries Sarah Parr from Market Harborough has become the lucky winner of Ultraframe’s Ideal Home Exhibition competition to win an Ultraframe conservatory. The winning installation was completed by Leicester-based, Guild Approved Ultra Installer, EAS Windows.
Ultraframe exhibited an impressive 3m x 3m gable fronted conservatory at the hugely popular show at Earl’s Court, London. The striking conservatory formed part of the Ideal Home magazine’s display of eight room sets which were individually styled to reflect different world styles. The Ultraframe conservatory was styled in a contemporary fashion, complete with computer station, lounge area and direct access to a patio garden. The design successfully demonstrated innovative ways of using the space and light provided by a conservatory extension.
The competition run on the stand for visitors to win an Ultraframe conservatory received a phenomenal response. Everyone who entered was sent a copy of the Ultra Guide to Conservatories from Ultraframe and details of their three closest Ultra Installers.
EAS Windows, became Ultra Installers in 2005 after passing strict vetting criteria by Ultraframe and The Guild of Master Craftsmen and passing an independent inspection by the BBA. Conservatory design experts from the company conducted a series of consultations with the winner to help make decisions on which conservatory style would suit her property and how this would be incorporated with existing conversion plans for the home. The final installation was a stunning Georgian style hipped back conservatory which was installed onto a recent extension to provide a relaxing, naturally light space for dining.
Commenting on the project, Brian Dowdall of EAS Windows, said: “The installation was a real winner. We recommended a self cleaning Conservaglass roof because of the south-facing aspect of the property - the excellent ‘U’ values help maintain a cooler and more comfortable internal environment. The Conservaglass features an attractive subtle blue tint which reduces the sun’s glare, whilst also allowing sufficient light to pass through.”
Profile manufacturers Rehau provided the white PVCu for the project whilst Cristal Glass provided the sealed units. EAS Windows has had a successful partnership with both suppliers for over 12 years.
Brian Dowdall has been specifying conservatories for over 20 years, he said: “As far as I’m concerned Ultraframe is the premier roof. Their roofs are technically superior, reliable for our fitters and aesthetically pleasing for our customers. Plus, Ultraframe products offer a flexibility that allows for more complicated designs that other roofs cannot achieve.”
“As a company we pride ourselves on our reputation for integrity and service,” continued Brian. “It is therefore important for us to offer a product we genuinely believe in. Coupled with our membership of the Ultra Installer Scheme, which means our standards of workmanship and service are regularly accessed, we can assure homeowners of complete peace of mind when they choose EAS to install their conservatory.”
EAS Windows is a family run business that employs up to 40 dedicated staff, including estimators, fitters and a manufacturing team. The company, who have been in business since 1989, celebrated the completion of their 10,000th job this year.
