conservatories Quality Home Extensions Made Easy Elwyn Roberts, managing director of the Hereford based manufacturer of DURABASE base and wall systems for conservatories, orangery’s and single storey home extensions, talks to Clearview about how the company has experienced a 15% growth on last year’s sales, through the continuing development of better quality products to meet the customers requirement for rooms that provide all year round living space. »»Durabase base and wall systems are designed to support the construction of conservatories, orangery’s and home extensions. It is an extremely fast, straight forward installation which reduces time spent on site to an absolute minimum, without making a mess of the customer’s garden. Elwyn advises: “With more and more homeowners seeing the advantages of investing in home improvements, involving extensions and creating bigger brighter living space, rather than moving properties, is one of the main reasons for seeing the uptake of the Durabase system. “Increased regulatory requirements, innovation and the need to improve the quality of conservatory structures has driven the industry to use better quality products to achieve the necessary thermal values. ‘We have seen an increase in the overall size of structures being built since the relaxation of planning regulations’ “Development of solid roofs, glass and glass units, aluminium and PVCu profile systems have all contributed to homeowners seeing the advantages of glass based extensions on the side of their homes. “We have seen an increase in the overall size of structures being built since the relaxation of planning regulations. These structures often require approval by building regulations, which can be achieved using our -DURABSE PLUS- system, with technical information being provided to support an application.” The Durabase system meets all the accreditation needed to enable the installation of a quality home extension, with concrete pad foundations and fixed to the house wall, it is a fast, clean and effective way of providing an accurate footing for your conservatory, orangery or home extension.
