Skypod gives quick return on investment property

Skypod gives quick return on investment property

A Skypod skylight from Eurocell has transformed a dilapidated lean-to conservatory on a Suffolk property into a stunning living space in less than a day!

Because of its easy-to-fit design and kit format, installing the 1.75m x 2.5m Skypod skylight took J K Cooper Roofing Services just a few hours.

Skypod from Eurocell provides an affordable, architectural solution that enhances the aesthetic appearance of flat-roof structures. It is suitable for conservatories, extensions and conversion projects.

This made it the perfect option for the owner of this property who, being a landlord, was looking to bring the house up to modern rentable standards in the shortest possible time.

As it was, the lean-to was unsightly, dangerous and impossible to keep warm in winter.

Property investor, Mr Michael Hill, quickly realised that he would therefore struggle to let the house in its current state. He asked local builder Jim Cooper, of J K Cooper Roofing Services, to replace the timber lean-to with a low maintenance solution from Eurocell. As an alternative to a flat roof, which would have limited the amount of light entering the conservatory, Jim recommended a Skypod skylight, which he sourced direct from the Eurocell Ipswich branch in kit form.

As part of a programme of renovation works carried out on the investment property in Mildenhall, Suffolk, the existing lean to conservatory was replaced with a stunning new Skypod skylight, Eurologik windows and a glazed door with Eurologik frame.

Jim Cooper recommended ‘A’ rated Eurologik windows because of their energy efficiency and the fact that the ultra-slim sight lines maximise the amount of light entering the compact conservatory.

White frames were specified throughout to achieve a perfect colour match and create a crisp, clean finish to the conservatory interior. With a light and airy feel, the space now appears to be much larger than it actually is, which will help Mr. Hill market the property to prospective tenants.

Jim Cooper said: “I’ve installed Eurocell products for over 10 years and I recommend them to my customers and others in the trade. Not only does Eurocell offer great value and high quality, their designs are really innovative.

Skypod skylights are a perfect example of this – it’s quick and easy to fit, looks good and provides a great solution for customers wanting a modern alternative to a flat roof.”

‘A’ rated for energy efficiency, the Eurologik frames on Mr. Hill’s conservatory made them the perfect partner for Skypod, which achieves a U-value performance of 1.0W/mÇK.

The Skypod range is available in kit form on a five day lead time from all 135+ Eurocell branches and as individual bar length components for Eurocell roof fabricators. It is offered in White, Moondust Grey, Anthracite Grey, Rosewood and Golden Oak with white interior finishes.

Eurocell has just added a two-bar pitched gable end design to the Skypod offer that eliminates the need for a central spider glazing bar, further improving aesthetics and increasing natural light.* The new design joins the existing three-bar version that was chosen by Mr. Hill.
