Managing director, Dave Jackson is the brains behind Icotherm’s conservatory roof system. He saw a gap in the market for a solid conservatory roof system that was thermally efficient, easy to install and a great solution for refurbishing old, unused conservatories across the UK.
Icotherm conservatory roof systems is designed to replace glass or polycarbonate conservatory roofs and get them secure and watertight within three hours. Inspired by the structural insulated panels (SIPs) used in modular home building, we created structural timber pre-fabricated pods, which have their insulation built-in and make for a quick and easy roof assembly on site.
The modular pods, manufactured in our factory in Bolton, have very few components. Once made, we number them to make it easier for customers to put them together perfectly on site and we offer straightforward schematic drawings which make easy reading for anyone used to fitting. The can be delivered direct and easily installed to reduce the amount of time installers are on site.
The roof can be easily adjusted on site. There is no deflection, so installers can offer perfect plasterwork ceilings and electrics can be pre-fitted, so it’s just a case of plug and play once you’re on site.
The process of getting a building certificate is quick and easy too. Icotherm conservatory roof systems is fully compliant with building control regulations. It’s approved by JHAI Building Inspectors and structurally approved by Rhodes & Partners, Structural & Civil Engineers.
Designed and built by conservatory experts with years of experience, Icotherm is the ideal solution for builders and window installers who want to offer conservatory roof refurbishments or build new solid roof conservatories quickly and efficiently.
