RESITRIX® roofing job and electric underfloor heating system in Grendon, Northamptonshire
Posted on 4th April 2016 at 10:35
This lovely property in the village of Grendon, south of Northampton, had a draughty conservatory with a plastic roof.
Although it was a great light space, the family were unable to use it effectively for much of the year due to it being in a north-facing shaded spot. It had become a bit of a storage space.
Blue Sky were asked to make the space into a useable, warm-through-the-year office but at the same time keep the light airy nature of the space so our team stripped off the old rattly plastic roof material and built a "warm" roof on top of the existing solid timbers.
We then clad it in a state of the art German roofing material called RESITRIX®. This reinforced product has alifetime guarantee and is perfect for flat roofs. It can even be used as a substrate for a "green" roof. The produc twas also chosen for its grey, smart appearance that blends well with the traditional lead work on other parts of this traditional stone built home.
By building up we were able to install three new Velux roof lights to maintain the lovely light feeling in the space at the same time as making it incredibly well insulated.
To finish off, the ceilings were plastered and after installing a thin layer of insulation to the existing floor we laid an electric underfloor heating system complete with thermostat and timer to ensure that the space is always at the desired temperature and at the times the family need. With the added insulation and timer controls this spaceis now cheap to heat and has become this busy family's light, airy and warm office.
