MORE INFORMATION (SOLID ROOF’S)
The customer must advice their local authority that they require the new conservatory solid roof & supporting structure that will comply with Building Regulations.
The Building Regulations that are likely to apply are: Approved Documents A, C & L.
Please note that we or any associate company cannot take any responsibility for acceptance of the roof & installation by the local authority or the suitability of the structure to take the required loads. If the customer has any concerns he should seek the advice of a qualified structural engineer.
- Assessing the suitability of the existing structure:
- The suitability of the supporting frames needs to be assessed to verify the type & extent of reinforcement that is present. This can be done by either drilling pilot holes or testing with a magnet to test for the incorporation of a steel core. If no steel reinforcement is present the installer should consider installing new window frames or support post abutting the existing frames.
- The existing foundations should be checked to ensure they are adequate to support the new loading. In most cases a 150mm thick concrete strip foundation or reinforced concrete slab which bears onto original ground will be adequate. If a trial hole is not possible the local authority may accept a visual inspection, confirming that the existing structure has not moved away from the main building in anyway, that there are not cracks evident in structure particularly if there is a brick dwarf wall, no sign of settlement & the floor is solid & no ‘bounce’ is evident.
- The following information from the customer is required before the roof is booked for a manufacturing slot.
- Plan with each elevation dimensioned, all dimensions to be internal face at eaves level.
- Position of any hips and valleys.
- Height at top of window from floor level.
- Height of ridges and valleys from floor level.
- Type and colour of roof tile.
- Colour of fascia.
- Colour and style of gutter and downpipes.
- Width of existing frames and material they are made from.
