In this case study, The most decorated GB female cyclist of all time – Laura Kenny – talks about her recent conservatory refurbishment using the WARMroof product, and describes how her conservatory now feels like a proper room and a real part of the house.
In February 2019, British Olympic Gold Medallist Dame Laura Kenny DBE & her husband Sir Jason Kenny CBE purchased their home which boasted a large wooden conservatory. Unfortunately, that summer, a bout of extreme heat and bad leaking made it clear that the conservatory was in desperate need of TLC.
Due to the conservatory’s age and poor design, the roof panels had moved forwards and created gaps which compromised the integrity of the roof. Laura and Jason decided they needed to refurbish the conservatory, and knew they wanted a solid ‘real’ roof due to their experience in their light and airy conservatory at their old home.
Their supplier provided detailed knowledge on the benefits of WARMroof structures, Laura felt “confident in the WARMroof product”, and decided to go ahead. To keep the element of light in their new conservatory, like they were used to, they chose to have 4 Velux rooflights installed, with the added benefit of increased ventilation as they can be opened when required.
Laura described the refurbishment process as “quick and easy”. During the manufacturing stage, high levels of pre-fabrication are done to ensure that when the WARMroof arrives on site in watertight protective packaging, it creates minimal mess and disruption during installation.
Laura and Jason love their newly refurbished WARMroof conservatory which has given them a light and airy additional living space that also forms part of their kitchen and entertaining area, making it perfect to enjoy with their family and family.
“We would definitely recommend the WARMroof system as it’s provided such a great living space for us to enjoy. It is much cooler in the warmer months whereas it used to be unbearable and it now feels like a proper room and a real part of the house.”
