What Types of House Extensions are Available?

Glass Roof Extensions

Glass roofing home extensions tend to not need planning permission. With the advancement of modern double glazing, you can use this space all year round. Super insulated columns allow for greater thermal efficiency. They retain heat inside the extension and can be more effective than housing bricks. Super insulated columns create breathtaking, modern, single story extensions. A glass roof extension can be much more than a traditional conservatory. Spectrum Glazing Ltd design glass roof living spaces for any purpose.

A Hybrid Solid and Glazed Extension Roof

Spectrum’s Livinroof offers a unique mixture of solid and glazed extension roofing. It’s perfect for those who want a full extension, but still want to capture natural sunlight in their home. It keeps some of the aesthetics of a traditional glass roof from the outside. However, inside there’s a seamless transition between solid and glazed roofing panels. Its market-leading technology gives you the best of both worlds. It performs like a full extension whilst capturing all the light needed for a modern sunroom.

Tiled Roof Extensions

For a lightweight tiled extension roof, consider the Ultraroof 380. The Ultraroof uses synthetic slates of heavy, costly roofing tiles. By doing so, the Ultraroof is much faster to install than a tiled roof extension. You’ll still enjoy strong Kingspan insulation and double glazed roofing panels. We also match the colour of your Ultraroof tiles to your existing homes roof design.
