Home Improvement Month
Ultraframe conservatories add space with style
During Home Improvement Month (April), brighten up your home and create a versatile room for all seasons, by adding a conservatory featuring the market-leading Ultraframe roofing system.
The roof is the most important structural element in any conservatory, providing strength, stability and ventilation to ensure you get the maximum enjoyment from your new conservatory; so you should choose the best available. There are over 1 million installed Ultraframe roofs performing every day, the systems are tried, tested & trusted. Not only this, but the Ultraframe system is the most configurable on the market – whatever your requirements you can be sure that your chosen installer can use the Ultraframe system to create the conservatory of your dreams.
Acknowledged as the international leader in the design and manufacture of conservatory roofing systems, Ultraframe have a wide range of products to suit every house, style and budget. The flexibility of the Ultraframe system means that you can create the conservatory of your dreams and choose a style that perfectly complements your property and personal taste. The company has been established for over 20 years and leads the way within the glazing industry for their continued research & development, ensuring that their roofing systems are the most innovative and technologically advanced on the market. This continued investment has resulted in top quality conservatory roofing systems, which ensure that a conservatory is a true room for all seasons.
Mark Hanson, Marketing Manager at Ultraframe commented: “Ultraframe have always led the conservatory market in terms of innovation and research and development. Our work has led not only to advances in the thermal performance of conservatories, but we have also developed a range of exciting ancillary products to enhance the appearance of a conservatory. Our range of Ultraselect decorative strips are extremely popular and can be changed to complement different colour schemes. We have also introduced a Certificate of Authenticity which reassures homeowners that they have received a top quality Ultraframe roof on their conservatory.”
For your peace of mind, all Ultraframe roofs have been awarded a life expectancy of at least 25 years by the British Board of Agrément and are designed in accordance with the latest BS6399 British Standard on conservatory wind and snow loads. This means that you can be sure that your conservatory can withstand the worst of the weather, year after year. Ultraframe roofs are the only ones on the market with ventilation built-in as standard which minimises condensation and ensures plentiful air movement, to maintain a comfortable interior temperature whatever the weather. The outstanding range of glazing materials available for the roof can also help to control the effects of the great British weather – Conservaglass is a high performance glass, available in clear or with a subtle blue tint, which has a revolutionary self-cleaning coating and in addition, reduces the temperature within the conservatory when compared to standard glass, whatever the weather. A wide range of polycarbonate glazing is also available in a variety of colours, this is a cheaper alternative to glass but still offers stunning aesthetics and excellent thermal performance.
Mark Hanson continued: “It is important not to underestimate the importance of ensuring adequate thermal performance within your conservatory. All Ultraframe roofing systems feature ventilation as standard which can be further enhanced with the addition of products such as Conservaglass, climate controlling and self-cleaning glazing. Glass roofs are becoming more popular and due to the weight of a glass roof you need to be sure that your roofing system is structurally sound. Ultraframe roofs are designed to meet the latest standards and each roof is specified in accordance with your postcode, ensuring that it can still perform under the very worst wind and snow loads.”
It's a sad fact, but practically everybody has heard horror stories about the problems caused by rogue builders. Tales of poor workmanship, unfinished work, overcharging and lost deposits are all too familiar. Ultraframe share the concerns over this issue, and have introduced the Guild Approved Ultra Installer Scheme - a national register of elite installers who have passed stringent vetting criteria by Ultraframe, the BBA (an official approvals body) and The Guild of Master Craftsmen. Following a successful application, which includes the checking of homeowner references, BBA inspections are maintained throughout membership along with training courses at Ultraframe to ensure the high standards of the Scheme are maintained. Don’t just appoint any installation company, for total peace of mind; appoint a Guild Approved Ultra Installer.
Mark Hanson concluded: “Ultraframe introduced the Ultra Installers Scheme to help homeowners select a conservatory installer they can trust and feel reassured that they will enjoy a positive buying experience. Our Ultra Installers can advise on the best Ultraframe products to suit each individual conservatory and will also strive to provide the very best in customer service.”
