Building Regulations part L1b 2013:
Conservatories less than 30m2 are exempt so long as the dividing wall and door are maintained between the conservatory and living space, also the heating system must not be extended into the conservatory. Must be thermally separated from the dwelling by walls, windows or doors that meet energy efficiency requirements.
In accordance with Building Regulations Part L1A:2013 the thermal
elements required will need to be as follows:
a) Wall 0.28 W/m2K
b) Floor 0.22 W/m2K
c) Window, roof window or roof light 1.6 W/m K WER band C or better Transparent or translucent roof 1.6 W/m2K All doors 1.8 W/m2K
d) Footings BS8103 Recommends a depth of not less than 1.0m
The guidelines are for new extensions and new build but we want to look at the future and install the same high specification for your Conservatory. Too many times builders and DIY project go wrong because the basics were neglected thinking that a conservatory is lightweight and only dig a small trench for footings, build the dwarf wall and install the frames and polycarbonate roof. Have a look at older conservatories and you will notice quite a few with the roof pointing down and not level.
Before any work can start you have to have a party wall agreement in place with your neighbours if you have architectural drawings made and approved this is even better as you would have had the designs approved by planning.
With so many choices of colours for the roof and frames and the new options for self-cleaning glass, 25mm or 35mm Polycarbonate. Roof Manufacturers including Global Roof, Ultraframe, Eurocell roof, Liniar roof, we can help you with the minefield of information, unfortunately, most of what you pick is down to budget limitations.
Roof Vent: We have two types: manual roof lights open using a simple screw jack and pole mechanism which also supports the unit when in the open position this can be opened or closed as required to help in ventilation comes in Brass or Chrome screw jack and pole. Alternatively, we can offer a fully automatic vent that opens when it too hot and automatically closes when it rains.
All our conservatories are made to measure, nothing is standard.
