We offer a wide range of roof glass including Active Blue and Neutral. All our glass roofs feature cutting edge solar controlled self-cleaning technology. See the ‘Pilkington Active Blue Glass Roof’ video in our videos section above for more information.
For the ultimate thermal & acoustic glass performance, you may also specify Triple Glazing in your conservatory, orangery or Garden Lounge.
Polycarbonate is a lightweight plastic glazing material, durable and exceptionally strong due to its multi-wall construction. The wide range of colours helps to reduce glare from the sun, reducing solar gain whilst providing privacy. With its competitive pricing it is still a popular choice.
All our roof glazing is fully compatible with our world leading Ultraframe roof system.
The Garden Lounge roof is a fully insulated, lightweight warm roof system. It is constructed using a traditional structural timber skeleton and is exclusively designed, developed and manufactured by our Right Choice roofing joiners in our purpose build workshops.
The Right Choice Garden Lounge roof is ideally suited for a range of new build constructions and due to its lightweight nature, a spectacular replacement roof for your existing conservatory or orangery. Being fully building regulations compliant it is a highly desirable and effective choice should you wish to create a typical kitchen extension, an extra bedroom, a highly functional home office or a delightful light and airy family room, to either transform your existing conservatory or start afresh with a brand-new build.
The flexibility of our roof is unrivalled, with lighting options to personalise your space not to mention the original Velux opening skylights for additional light and ventilation. You can also choose our modern Aspect fixed glazed panels to create the perfect combination of tiles and glass in the one roof.
The Garden Lounge Roof comes as standard with a contemporary lighting pelmet, with the option to install spot downlights but if you prefer you can choose a flat internal ceiling if this better suit your requirements.
Our Right Choice Garden Lounge Roof gives you the choice to create your ultimate all-year round space. Don’t forget to view our solid roofing video on our Videos page.
Only market leading fusion heat welding systems are used to fabricate our side frames and doors, all of which are A rated and fabricated with a multi-chambered profile. All of our frames comply with British standards EN14351-1 and reinforced to BS2989 specification.
We internally glaze all our windows and doors with a low sight line gasket and weather strips incorporating cruciform welded joints. Our profile is produced to ISO9001 – ISO14001 quality certification.
For your peace of mind, we use ultra-high security multi point locking windows. Our windows also come with night vent facility and smooth operation gearboxes. For our doors we use a hook and claw security system to comply with the Association of British Insurers.
Various door options are available including French, sliding patio and multi panel bi-folding door systems. Our frames and doors are available in a full range of colours with window and door furniture upgrades available to match.
All our splayed angled cill joints are formed using fusion heat welding. This means the cills offer additional structural stability. Combined with our lightweight tiled roof it increases the strength, structural stability and longevity of your installation.
UPVC opening sashes are fitted with multi – point locking and night vent facility. UPVC doors are fitted with three point locking high security hook and claw systems.
Our locking systems comply with The Association of British Insurers (ABI) Guidelines.
Units are assembled using the most up to date machinery and manufacturing procedures. All our glass conforms to BS 6206A. Our standard side frame and door double glazed units are manufactured to 28mm width and roof units to 24mm in width.
For ultimate thermal & acoustic glazing performance we also offer Triple Glazing.
To offer the best structural integrity and performance of your roof our standard glazing panel width is no wider than 900mm. At Right Choice we believe these increases the structural properties of the construction. Whilst some companies compromise this structural integrity in order to reduce manufacturing costs. So for peace of mind, ensure your estimate includes panel widths and roof bar centres up to a maximum of 900mm and request a structural report for your orangery or conservatory roof to be included in your estimate.
When installing UPVC glass or polycarbonate glazed roofs, Right Choice only uses the Ultraframe specialist structural roof system. Having been designed and manufactured over many years, offering exacting standards and pure expertise, the Ultraframe roof system complies with and exceeds all relevant BBA requirements for structural stability and weather performance, combined with a minimum life expectancy of 25 years. Supplying over one million roofs to date, you know you’re in safe hands with Ultraframe.
Please view our Ultraframe Roof video on our Videos page.
Our Garden Lounge tiled roof is a fully insulated lightweight solid warm roof and has a life expectancy of 40 to 50 years depending on final specification.
All conservatory flashings to the house wall are formed using lead. Where applicable, the lead is fully fitted into raked out mortar joints and is securely held in place with lead fixing clips. Flashings comply with British Standards code of practice BS5516.
As a dedicated specialist, Right Choice only uses structural corner posts. Specifically made for purpose, they are formed at the correct angle required for construction.
Once fixed, the posts do not allow movement of the window side frames to give additional rigidity to the installation.
Unlike some others, we never cut corners on our bases. Our typical base consists of a traditional full concrete strip footing and a solid concrete slab laid over hardcore with a damp proof membrane. External corner angles are constructed using pre-formed squint brick where applicable. Base slabs are fully insulated, as is the cavity wall. Our standard base construction consists of a maximum of four courses of brickwork below the damp proof course of the existing property and seven courses to dwarf wall. Please be aware that on occasions poor ground conditions, location of utility services, tree roots etc will incur extra base costings, as such issues can only be fully determined and quantified during actual excavation of ground works and foundations.
When fabricating UPVC roofs, the world leading Ultraframe roof system offers a specifically designed aluminium ridge profile. The ridge is also constructed with an internal self ventilating option to reduce heat build up.
You may also specify ridge spot downlights as an additional lighting option.
Please see the Ultraframe Roof video on our Videos page for more information.
When installing UPVC glass or polycarbonate glazed roofs, the market leading Ultraframe roof has an aluminium eaves beam featuring a multi-chambered construction. This design achieves a high level of stability and rigidity for the roof structure.
Please see our Ultraframe Roof video on our Videos page for more information.
For our lightweight fully-insulated Garden Lounge roof, the large timber eaves beam corner joints are reinforced with heavy duty steel corner straps. This completely eliminates any possibility of flexing or movement.
Each installation offers a 10-year Consumer Protection Association insurance backed guarantee. For full details please ask for a copy of our CPA literature.
With the above guarantee, combined with our customer care, superb after sales service, market leading specification, first class build quality by professional tradesmen and our attention to detail, Right Choice will provide you with peace of mind over the years and leave you free to enjoy your new Orangery, Conservatory or Garden Lounge as a valuable and highly desirable extension to your home.
A Typical Installation Sequence
The information below has been designed to give you a typical guide and insight into the various stages of the construction of a typical installation.
We hope this information will be of help whilst you are in the process of choosing the best and most reliable company to design manufacture and install your new orangery, conservatory or garden lounge.
If any of your questions are left unanswered, or you wish to discuss in more detail any of the points raised, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Right Choice team who will be happy to offer more help, guidance and advice in relation to your orangery, conservatory or garden lounge home extension requirements.
1. On receipt of your order
You will join our waiting list. If your installation requires planning permission you will be contacted by the company architect to arrange a visit. The plans will be drawn and a full planning application will then be submitted to your local planning authority.
To obtain planning approval can normally take six to eight weeks. Any further correspondence or negotiations required, or sometimes a home visit by a planning officer, will be dealt with by Right Choice acting on your behalf as your representatives. Whilst planning approval is being obtained you will retain your place in the waiting list and normally once planning permission is granted we will commence construction as soon as possible.
2. If your installation requires a detailed survey
An appointment will be made for our technical surveyor to call when he is in your area. On most occasions you need not be at home, however, you will need to leave access to the area of your property where the installation is to be located. Once surveyed, at the appropriate time, your order will be passed to the next stage.
3. Using the inforamtion ascertained
Your orangery, conservatory or garden lounge will be designed and detailed including the foundation, base, dwarf wall and will be released to one of our base construction teams. On base completion, final manufacturing sizes will be taken and the roof & the side frame requirements and specifications will be formulated ready for manufacturing.
You will be contacted to arrange a convenient time to commence your base construction works.
4. To commence base installation
The base team will require a water and electrical supply. If required, a builders skip will be provided to remove any soil or waste material which may be generated. Should you have any special requirements as to the location of your skip please discuss this directly with your base construction team.
Typical base installation as follows
A. Excavation and casting of the concrete footings. At this point, a brick match will be identified. We will endeavour to match your existing property as best we can. If, however, a reasonable match
cannot be found you will be offered a number of the closest possibilities to choose from.
B. Brickwork built to slab or DPC level ready for the casting of the concrete slab.
C. Casting or the pouring of the concrete slab. This will form the level at which your internal floor finish will be laid.
D. The building up of the internal and external bricks of the cavity wall that will support the framework and internal window board.
Please Note: the above procedure will normally be carried out over a four to six day period to accommodate the size and design of the base requirements. The weather and local prevailing ground conditions may also affect the time scale.
The base team will come and go during this period to allow materials to set and consolidate but you will be informed as to their progress.
If necessary your completed base will be acid cleaned to remove any mortar or concrete splashes etc. This will be carried out a few days after completion of the base or during your installation. Costs for landscaping, re-flagging or reinstatement of paths, flowerbeds or patio areas are not included in your price unless specifically detailed on your order form. Unforeseen excavation or additional works due to poor ground conditions, hidden utility services, tree roots etc will be chargeable.
5. The electrical first fix
will now be arranged. Access to the house will be necessary. If you are not contacted at this stage you will receive a first and final electrical fix during the installation of the orangery or conservatory.
All installations conform to current regulations (BS 7671-2004).
Please Note: due to the above regulations upgrade work may be required to the customer’s property before we are permitted by law to connect our new electrical installation to your existing property electrics. Our electrical contractors will be happy to advise and carry out any necessary work should you require them to do so. In such instances, any extra cost incurred is payable directly to them.
6. Framework and roof installation (plus patio doors if applicable)
After the required time period you will be contacted to arrange an installation date. If patio doors are required we will need access to the house. Otherwise we need only an electrical supply.
This may be achieved by means of an extension cable socket being left outside (but please remember to switch on the plug!).
The actual installation will take approximately two to five days depending upon the size and the specification details required. If plastering is required it will proceed prior to the electrical second fix. You will be contacted by our office to arrange a convenient date.
7. Electrical second fix will now be arranged if required
Our electrical contractor will require access to the house to make the relevant electrical connections. At this stage your internal and external lighting, electrical sockets etc will be fitted in accordance with your order form.
8. Floor tiling/ Under floor heating
The office will once again contact you to confirm a date for our floor tiler to call. You do not have to be at home as we can use one of the new electrical sockets for power and the tiler carries his own water supply. Once the floor tiles have been laid you may walk on the floor the following day.
We recommend you mop the floor on the second day to remove any over smear of tile grout from the tile surface.
9. Customer care and after sales service
After completion of your installation you will receive a direct customer care telephone number. If your installation should develop a problem you may ring to describe your problem and a visit from one of our service engineers can be arranged.
Once your installation is complete you will also receive a guide to the best types of cleaning products for the various materials used in the manufacture of your new conservatory, orangery or garden lounge and tips on general care throughout its life.
10. 10-year warranty
Once your new order has been completed you may now activate your 10-year warranty certificate from the CPA Insurance backed Guarantee scheme. The certificate will normally take up to six weeks to arrive.
