How We Work
Over 5 decades of experience designing custom-built conservatories
At Room Outside® we fully understand that each customer is an individual; we are experts at offering you practical, bespoke glass solutions tailored to whatever requirement you may have. There are no such things as problem sites, only opportunities to fully capitalise upon the uniqueness and beauty of your home, driven by your needs and budget. Whatever your criteria, we will find the solution. You can be confident that whatever your vision, we have the experience and state of the art products and will work with you to turn your vision into a reality.
Once we receive your initial enquiry and have a clear picture of the basics of your project, we will provide you with more information and in some cases a basic estimate. If you wish to proceed further, we will book in call, video call or if appropriate we may visit to discuss your proposed extension in more detail. We will work with you to understand your vision, taste, requirements, and budget.
Our extremely experienced Design Consultants will also review your current property to understand the aesthetic, space availability and possible challenges. Materials, styles, layout, and dimensions options and recommendations of what would work with your property may also be discussed to give you an idea of what can be achieved.
From there we will book in another no-pressure meeting to present to you the possible options with the aid of design visuals where appropriate, measure up and take photos of the site and discuss materials and finishes in more detail and give you a tailored quotation. If you wish to go ahead, we will book in another meeting to finalise the design of your chosen glass extension and complete the paperwork accordingly.
At this stage we will introduce you to our specialist building partners and architects that will be working on your project. They will complete a technical survey of your property and the site that your extension will be built on. The architect will also draw up the plans for your conservatory or glass extension and advise whether or not your project will need to go through the planning authority to gain planning permission and building consent, although you won’t always need this. If planning permission is required, they will do all the required paperwork and submit it to the planning authority on your behalf and keep you up to date on how it is progressing. We also have expert experience with gaining planning permission for listed buildings so can work with the relevant parties to help get your project approved. Once everyone is happy with the plans and, if needed, planning permission is granted, we will get a date booked in to start building your Room Outside extension.
As with any building work, there will be some unavoidable mess that comes with it. Our team will work hard to contain the dust and dirt as much as possible and keep the building site tidy and secure at the end of each day. Our team will also have their own portaloo facilities, so that they will not need to enter your property. Once your build is booked in, we will be able to give you a schedule detailing our working hours and an expected completion date. Our team will check in with you throughout the process to ensure everything is going to plan and that you are happy. The build will commence with removing any existing structure to be replaced and building the foundations for your new extension. On completion, our cleaning specialists will thoroughly valet clean your new structure inside and out to ensure it is left looking sparkling clean. We will inspect the work and ensure that you are satisfied with your beautiful new glass room.
Every structure is designed and built to the very highest care and attention, using only the best products and materials. So we are confident that, with continued care and regular maintenance, your structure will be around for many decades to come. To give you peace of mind and assurance in your Room Outside investment, we offer our customers a structural products guarantee, protecting you against defective materials for a period of 30 (thirty) years. Our guarantee is independently recognised as one of the best in the industry and totally unique to Room Outside. We also offer a specialist valet clean and maintenance service to help you keep your glass room looking as great as the day it was built.
