If you’d like an additional room in your home, a house extension or garage conversion is the usual choice. However, both of these options are fairly costly and can take a long time to build. The Atlas Skyroom provides a light, thermal efficient, and spacious alternative which can be built in a fraction of the time.
Aluminium or Brick House Extension
You can build an Atlas Skyroom in aluminium alone – so that it resembles a conservatory more – or aluminium and brickwork for more of an orangery feel. The metal is strong and slim, so you can enjoy a slimmer ridge and better views. Unlike a standard house extension, you will see more of the outdoors and get more natural light into your new addition.
Energy Efficient Glazing
While there is a lot of glass in the Skyroom, this does not compromise on energy efficiency. All of the glazing is energy efficient and designed to retain as much heat as possible. The ridge roof actually allows more sun light (and therefore more heat) into the room, keeping it considerably warmer than an old-fashioned conservatory. The ridge roof is also covered with black film to allow privacy in your room as well as attracting more sun light so that your room is even warmer. The effect also allows the glazed roof to blend in with the rest of your home.
No Planning Permission Required
Depending on where you live, your type of home, and the size of your Skyroom, you may not require planning permission for the build – this means that the build will take less time and money than many other options such as garage conversions and house extensions. You can cut out the hassle and expense of paying an architect to draft plans and to go through the planning consent process.
