The Ultraroof solid roof system from Ultraframe has been crowned the winner in the category of Best Use of a Solid Conservatory Roof System at the recent Pitched Roofing Awards in recognition of a stunning conservatory transformation by Ultraframe customer , Green and Heritage Roofing of Halifax . The win is the second for the Ultraroof system at the prestigious awards , following a win in the same category in 2019 . The system features a choice of authentic looking tile options to suit any style of property .
The 2021 winning project saw an old conservatory with a polycarbonate roof transformed into a beautiful , energy efficient extension with the addition of an Ultraroof featuring full length glazed panels . A change in the shape meant the project was technically difficult , but this was not a problem for the Ultraroof system as it can be used for any shape or size of roof . The judges of the Pitched Roofing Awards “ were very impressed at the vast improvement made by Green and Heritage Roofing .”
Explaining about the brief for the project , Chris Hopkins of Green and Heritage Roofing , said : “ Having an existing polycarbonate roof , this very large conservatory was too hot in summer and too cold to use in the winter months . The new Ultraroof has updated the appearance of the conservatory , turning it into more of an extension of the main house , and will ensure our customer
gets better use out of their conservatory , all year round .”
Ultraframe Marketing Director , Alex Hewitt , said : “ Our Ultraroof system is a fantastic choice for a conservatory roof replacement project . Green and Heritage Roofing came up with a stunning design that altered the roof shape slightly and the result is outstanding . Huge congratulations to the Green and Heritage Roofing team
for creating such a beautiful new living space and being recognised for their workmanship at the Pitched Roofing Awards .”
Ultraroof is the most thermally efficient solid roof on the market and exceeds Building Regulations with a U-Value as low as 0.13 – making it the ideal choice for transforming a cold conservatory into a thermally efficient , modern extension . It is also the lightest
and strongest solid roof on the market , meaning it is easy for fitters to handle and can be used for designs of any shape or size . Additionally , the speed of building an Ultraroof can be several days faster than comparable roof systems thanks to it being 100 % prefabricated , allowing installers and builders to quickly move onto their next project . On-site support is available for every first installation for total peace of mind , along with a whole host of other support to assist installers with surveying , selling , and building the award-winning solid roof .
