This bright and spacious lean-to glass garden room extension is a perfect addition to this beautiful detached property situated within a sought after cul-de-sac between Ascot and Sunninghill, close to the famous Royal Ascot racecourse.
Having recently purchased their new home with their young family, the Ascot homeowners were keen to upgrade the property’s energy efficiency and security and invest in double glazed windows.
Part of the renovation was to completely transform the side of the property with a glass extension to create a light and airy family living space to bring them closer to nature and the outdoors.
After a visit to our Bracknell showroom and an initial consultation with one of our designer, the design brief was to create a glass garden room to ensure the outside was felt inside.
Our designer recommended a slim profile glazing solution that replicates aluminium frames’ aesthetics to maximise natural light. He provided the homeowners with 3D visuals of the proposed glass garden room extension, to give them a realistic vision of the proposed glass garden room extension.
The Ascot homeowner’s opted for a mixture of high-quality double-glazed products including anthracite grey uPVC windows, French patio doors and a lean-to style glass roof with two electric roof vents
Once our customer approved the final glass room design, we arranged for one of our experienced surveyors to visit the property to take precise measurements.
Planning permission was not required for the glass extension, but we applied for a certificate of lawfulness from the local RBWM authority.
The complete project was overseen by our designer, who worked together with his local builder, plumber, carpenter and electrician to ensure the glass garden room extension run to schedule and was finished to an exceptional standard.
By nature, any construction work is messy; our designer ensured that each team work hard to keep the homeowner’s property as clean and tidy as possible, providing safety to homeowners and neighbours at all times.
When the builders started to dig the foundations, they also started the brick matching process to ensure a seamless blend with the existing brickwork. When laying the bricks the builders followed the same mortar mix & pointing style for accuracy.
The installation of the glass garden room took five days to complete, at the end of the week, the extension starts to become a reality making all the planning worthwhile.
The result is a stunning glass garden room with its full height glazing and set of French doors, and has met the homeowner’s design brief to ensure the outside is felt inside.
The large transparent glazed lean-to roof has enabled a real feeling of simultaneously being inside and out and created a family living space to be enjoyed during the day filled with natural daylight while providing panoramic views of the garden and offers fantastic views of the stars at night.
The homeowners are delighted with their glass garden room extension, the slim profile of the double glazed windows and doors offers excellent thermal performance.
The 75mm multi-chamber profile in the uPVC system delivers optimum energy efficiency combined with Low E coating, argon gas and warm-edge spacer bars offering overall controlled temperature and comfort in the living space.
The uPVC solution is explicitly designed for 28mm and 44mm bead options, giving homeowners a choice of double and triple glazing specifications.
In addition to installing this stylish glass garden room extension to the side of this Ascot property, we also installed thirteen low maintenance anthracite grey uPVC windows and a contemporary Apeer composite front door.
