250-year-old listed barn given new lease of life with Clement Conservation Rooflights

by Laura

Originally a listed manor house and two separate barns, this Essex home has been transformed to provide stunning new accommodation and extra living space for the owners who have lived there for over 30 years.

The timber framed barns had previously been extended in size with new Red Essex Brick.  It was decided to remove these as part of the renovation and only keep the original bricks, resulting in a fabulous fusion of traditional and modern.  The old timber frames remain as a feature inside.

Over 20 Clement Conservation Rooflights were chosen in various sizes and profiles.  They lie perfectly flush in both the slate and tile sections of roof in keeping with the original character of the buildings and are top hung with 300mm brass pole winders.

The homeowner commented:

“We were recommended Clement Conservation Rooflights and have been pleased with our decision to purchase them as they were ideal for this project.  I visited the showroom initially to feel and see the product and was very happy with the quality.  We couldn’t decide whether to choose the automatic actuators or manual winders to open the roof windows.  In the end we chose the pole winders and feel we made the right decision.”

Manufactured for either a slate or a tile profile, the beauty of Clement skylights is that they lie flush with your roofline giving a neat finish.

Available in eight standard sizes, Clement Conservation Rooflights are constructed using mild steel sheet which makes them particularly strong.  The surface is coated in polyzinc and then polyester powder paint for durability and to give the rooflights a good-looking finish.

Clement’s roof windows are made from high performance, argon filled, 24mm insulated glass units and come with a revolutionary warm T bar system.  Available with several glazing options, including self-cleaning glass as standard, Clement’s rooflights are manufactured to EN ISO 9001 standards and rigorously tested against air, wind and rain to BS6375.  They have achieved a BFRC Window Energy Rating of A+.

The standard range of rooflights is generally available for delivery 2-3 working days.  If one of the standard sizes is not appropriate, bespoke rooflights are also available.

Clement Windows Group manufactures an innovative range of steel windows, doors, screens and rooflights for both private residences and commercial projects.  Based just outside London in Surrey, Clement’s window products can be seen in a number of prestigious projects across the UK and abroad.  Prominent examples include Battersea Power Station and Old Marylebone Town Hall in London, The Pithay and YMCA in Bristol, Norwich City Hall, the University of Manchester and the Eldorado Building in New York’s Manhattan.
