The Ultraroof solid roof system from Ultraframe has been shortlisted twice at the Pitched Roofing Awards in the category of Best Use of a Solid Conservatory Roof System.
Marketing director Alex Hewitt said: “We feel very proud that Ultraroof is the only solid roof system to have been selected for the shortlist at this years’ Pitched Roofing Awards. The two projects shortlisted are both fantastic examples of Ultraroof’s capabilities.
“One demonstrates perfectly how Ultraroof saves huge amounts of money on steel goalposts due to its immense strength, and the other is a roof replacement/change of roof style on a tricky shape – but of course, Ultraroof can be used for any shape or style of roof.”
The two installation companies shortlisted for the projects are Green & Heritage Roofing of Halifax, and Southern Conservatories Ltd of North Perrott.
Green & Heritage Roofing undertook a project which involved transforming a T-shaped polycarbonate conservatory into a contemporary Ultraroof lean-to extension, complete with several full-length glazed panels. The change of 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.
Southern Conservatories is shortlisted with a gable style Ultraroof extension featuring a large span of bi-folds. Thanks to the incredible strength of the Ultraroof 380mm box eaves beam, no additional support was needed over the doors, and so the installer was able to save around £3k retail compared to using other roofs on the market, where a steel goalpost would have been required.
Ultraroof is the only roofing system to have been shortlisted in the category at the awards, which are aligned with Roofing, Cladding and Insulation Magazine.
