The solid walls offer additional privacy and warmth. Often, they will feature a pelmet around the roof, increasing the additional energy efficiency of the space. As for the roof style, it’s completely up to you! You could choose a solid tiled roof for thermal reasons or a glass roof to create a brighter space.
If you are looking to extend your home in a natural-looking way, a home extension may be the best option for you. An Orion Windows’ home extension is designed to feel like a more seamless extension of your home. Traditionally, home extensions incorporate more brickwork and a solid, tiled roof. However, it’s now common to choose a hybrid roof which includes full length glass panels and Velux windows. This will ensure the living space is bright and well-ventilated.
Don’t get bogged down by the labels. Speak to an advisor at Orion Windows who can organise an installation that is bespoke to you and your requirements.
