Warmroof hybrid

A single storey extension installed by Steve Gill Joinery showcased the Warmroof hybrid roof and aluminium glazing elements supplied by Prefix Systems.

The initial brief from the homeowner was to replace a staircase but this led into them asking Steve Gill to help design a new extended living area, which could be used all year round and that would offer a panoramic view of the garden.

The installation was 4.4m wide x 3.4m in projection and included anthracite grey full height fixed aluminium frames either side, and bifolding doors to the front projection. The Warmroof included a deeper soffit overhang design, and was dressed with a matching exterior grade hardwood, completed with spotlights. Spotlights also featured on the internal pelmet with the triple-glazed hybrid elements framed with the Opus timber claddings and two hanging crystal chandeliers.

Outside, slate cladding was used as a contrasting alternative to brick of which was no longer available as an exact match, and the plan was to use the same system in the garden for raised areas.

Arequest has since been made from a neighbour for something similar.

Steve Gill said: “As a time served joiner I knew that this project required careful attention to detail and outstanding materials, and this hybrid roof from Prefix Systems is very much unique, well-designed and effortless to install. With all the aluminium glazing also supplied by them I was able to benefit from coordinated deliveries of materials and outstanding customer and technical support.”
