Ultraframe Ultra Installer – Forest Edge Home Improvements helped a family to extend their arts & crafts-style house in Lymington, Hampshire, with an Orangery-style extension using the manufacturer’s recently-enhanced Classic Roof with its new slimline ridge.

Homeowner Mrs Renshaw explained about the project: “We really wanted to enjoy the views of our garden by living on the back of our home and we decided that an orangery would be a beautiful way to do this.

“After meeting with James from Forest Edge Home Improvements, he showed us the new look Ultraframe Classic Roof, the Internal Pelmet system, and the external Cornice. Together, they allowed us to create the effect we wanted, but in a much more cost-efficient and contemporary way than a traditionally built Orangery.”

The installer designed an 8m wide contemporary extension topped with a Classic aluminium roof in black with a two-tier black Cornice, and with black aluminium bi-folds spanning the full width of the extension.

Ultraframe marketing director Alex Hewitt, said: “The slimline ridge offers a completely different aesthetic to the usual large Classic radius end. Coupled with an aluminium finish to the roof and aluminium bi-folds, it’s hard to believe that this ultra-modern roof is the industry’s longest established conservatory roof system. Of course, we’ve been refining the system throughout the years, and the Slimline Ridge has brought it right up to date for today’s modern conservatory and extension requirements.”

Mrs Renshaw concluded: “Not only have we gained a lot of extra square footage, but our new extension also has the wow factor due to the glass roof and bi-fold doors which let in lots of natural light, whatever the weather. We love it and now spend all our time in the new room!“
