Glazed Extension Styles
Glazed extension styles:
As recently as five years ago a ‘glazed extension’ wasn’t a term we ever really used but one of the key benefits of appointing a CIN installer is that they are entirely up to speed in the development and usage of new systems that allow you to design a glazed space that’s as unique as you are. No more ‘white boxes’ – unless you like white boxes, but the chance to work with your CIN installer to design a space that takes into account how you’ll use the space – either as a kitchen or extra living/dining space.
Whether you intend to open up the space to your existing property or design it as a closed off space for occasional use. All of these factors will be discussed with you by your CIN installer. And only after careful consideration will you finally sign off your design.
Some key design styles and how they work:
Conservatory – things have really moved on in the world of conservatory design. Not only are today’s conservatories able to deliver far superior thermal performance but there’s also the opportunity to build in extra features that will give the space greater thermal performance and greater solidity. Often you can now build in a internal pelmet system that will allow you to integrate lighting and cabling for speakers.
Perfect for: either occasional use or a space that doesn’t need to be open to the rest of your property. Allows you to create a space that brings your garden into your home.
Loggia (the modern orangery) – Loggia take the conservatory to a whole new level of thermal performance and with the addition of super-thermal columns – the more you add – the warmer the space. Combined with an internal pelmet system and external cornice, a Loggia starts to feel like a traditional extension to your home.
Perfect for: every day use where you’d like to remove the external wall and create an open plan living environment. Loggia columns not only provide significant thermal performance but they also give you the chance to ‘bespoke’ your extension with the use of colour.
Solid roof extensions – you don’t need a builder to construct a traditional solid roof extension you can use all the advantages of a CIN installer to create a fully-loaded home extension. Our CIN installers will use two different roof systems depending on the look that you are trying to achieve. There are no limits to the type of roof that can be used – they can even design a roof that will use the same tiles as on your property if that’s the look you want. Both roof systems deliver the ultimate in thermal performance and both deliver a beautiful vaulted roof space with the option of integrating glazing to flood your space with natural daylight.
Conservatory transformations – if you’ve had a conservatory ten years or more (or less depending on the quality of the original build) then you might consider transforming your conservatory. As long as you’re happy with the footprint of the original design then a CIN installer can replace your roof with a solid option. They’ll need to check your side frames are still in great condition but they’ll give you that advice.
