Planning and Process
Do I need planning permission in a conservation area?
As a homeowner it is your responsibility to inform All Seasons Roof if you are in a conservation area. We can create uPVC or timber windows that will fit in with the original style of the home, and our expert consultants will help you to design frames that will help you to gain the necessary permission.
What must I do in preparation for the installation of my conservatory?
You will save us preparation time allowing us to quickly start the installation if you clear the area of all garden implements.
How long will I wait for my new products after I have accepted the quotation?
We can offer you approximate time scales but every installation is different therefore the lead times can only be estimated. Listed below are the estimated leadtimes:
- UPVC Doors – 8-12 Weeks
- Windows – 8-12 Weeks
- Conservatories – 8–10 weeks. This does not include 3rd party approvals
- Garage Doors – 10-12 Weeks
- Rooftrim – 8-10 Weeks
- Porches – 10-12 weeks. This does not include 3rd party approvals
How do I dispose of my old products?
We will remove your old products and dispose of them in an environmentally friendly way. Where possible we will recycle the uPVC.
Do I need to obtain planning permission for my new conservatory?
If you require planning permission All Seasons Roof can manage the process for you at no extra cost.
What will happen if asbestos is found in the existing roof?
Asbestos of any kind is potentially deadly and is known to cause cancer. Disturbing it can cause the release of fine asbestos dust. This is why it is no longer legal to use asbestos. Its use was banned in 1999. Prior to the installation the All Seasons Roof surveyor will inspect all existing installations such as gutters, cement verges and soffits. If he suspects that there is asbestos present he will take samples and send them off for testing at a UKAS accredited laboratory. If the laboratory confirms the presence of asbestos we will safely dispose of it under strict control as directed by the Special Waste Regulations.
Do I need to obtain planning permission to add a porch?
You will only need planning permission and building regulation approval is if the porch is more than 3m² in floor area and closer than 2 metres of any boundary which fronts a highway. If yoou’d prefer a large porch and require planning permission, We at All Seasons Roof will help you with the design and then we will ensure that you get all the permissions that you require to commence installation. You won’t have to do a thing.
What is the minimum ceiling height?
There is no specified minimum ceiling height in the Building Regulations. But a height of less than 2300mm should be avoided since it is uncomfortably low, and will appear cramped.
Must I comply with Building Regulations?
Leave it up to us. We will ensure that you comply with all applicable Building Regulations, whatever the installation.
Will you do a survey after I have placed the order?
All Seasons Roof Products always ensures that a survey is done to ensure we have all the right dimensions so that your product fits perfectly.
