Our attention this summer turned to the Dover area when we were contracted to build a new conservatory to the side of a bungalow, adding insulation to the wall void, in addition to re-cladding three elevations of the bungalow with horizontal Western Red cedar boarding.
We were presented with the challenge of completing the whole project in just four weeks due to pre-arranged holidays at the start and end of the contract. No problem at all!
We started in July and began by removing the cedar boarding from each gable, adding extra ventilation to the loft space by way of installing our classic Colt gable-end Louvered vents to each end. Celotex insulation was cut and fixed in between the framework studs and a further 25 mm layer fixed over the top. New cedar was fixed to battens; finally being all dressed with Texnap 22 oil on completion.
The conservatory and insulation on the eaves elevation was well underway by the second week. We displayed the different cedar profile options available for the inside of the conservatory and all agreed the cedar horizontal boarding internally should match the outside boarding, thus maintaining seamless lines, inside and out.
uPVC double glazed windows and French doors in treated sub-frames were installed to the conservatory and a bronze polycarbonate roof with white guttering completed the roof.
Our expert joiners completed the work to the highest standard in the agreed time frame allowing our clients to commence their holiday with the greatest satisfaction.
