Lightweight composite roof.

Our composite tiled roof is a modern alternative which features lightweight composite tiles or slates.

Our slate range is available in a choice of 5 natural colours, providing you the opportunity to add texture and style to your new roof.

The modern tiles are made from lightweight, high-grade steel with an Aluzinc® coating for incredible strength and resistance. They are also available in 5 different colours to complement practically any home.

You can add features to your roof including Smartglass® infinity glazing panels or traditional roof windows. On the inside the roof is fully vaulted making it a real feature of your newly refurbished living space.

Replacement windows, doors and a full interior make over.

You can create a whole new space within the existing footprint of your conservatory or sunroom by fitting new Lorimer windows and doors as well as the composite roof above by reusing your existing foundations and builder work.

Lorimer windows and doors are A-energy rated and fully reinforced so they’ll help keep the heat in your newly renovated living space.

Optionally we can then give the inside a complete makeover with new plasterboard, flooring, electrics, heating and timber sills and skirtings. Plus, our professional decorators can paint the walls and varnish the sills.

Building regulations.

If you are changing your existing structure from a polycarbonate or glass roof to a solid roof, Scottish building regulations class this as a ‘change of use’. This means that an application must be made to your local authority for a building warrant, and a structural engineer’s report would also be required.

FIX will complete the necessary drawings and applications on your behalf. We ‘ll ensure the transformation of your existing conservatory not only looks fantastic, but is in line with the standards required under Scottish building regulations.
