Some more pictures for you - this time from a job we did where the conservatory is used as a kid's playroom.
Previous work - cold winter - warmer conservatory!

Now that the cold weather is upon us many people will have stopped using their conservatories. Conservatories can be extremely cold at this time of year - which is a shame given the money spent having them built.

Previous work - raising the roof!
Posted: 14th November, 2013
This job saw us raising the roof to create more space in the room (a sun lounge / utility room).
After removing the old glass conservatory roof we raised the frame to its new, higher level.
Once this was complete we were able to finalise the structure, adding insulation into the new roof.
The final picture shows the finished product - a newly tiled conservatory roof on a now much more usable room!
