Building Regulations Explained for your Leka Solid Conservatory Roof

Replacing an old, glazed roof conservatory with a new Leka solid conservatory roof system, has become a popular and ideal way to transform a conservatory into a space that can be used all year round. When you have a new solid conservatory roof installed, it’s important to make sure that it adheres to all Building Regulations – this goes for refurbishments and retrofit too. By choosing a Leka roof, you can be confident that the entire installation will be Building Regulations compliant.

You’ll find that most solid roof conservatory projects don’t need planning permission, because they’re classed as a permitted development. You can read more about these here on the planning portal. However, unless your conservatory is only used as a small front porch, you will still need building Regulations approval for your new solid conservatory roof installation. This is made simple by choosing a Leka solid conservatory roof, as it has been tested and assessed by the experts and is fully compliant with Building Regulation requirements.

Your Building Regulations Compliant Solid Conservatory Roof

Our Leka solid conservatory roof system has undergone a lengthy and in-depth assessment to be approved by JHAI, a Building Control Approved Inspector. This makes it much easier for your local Leka certified installer to get Building Control certificates for your home improvement project.

Obtaining a Building Regulations certificate from JHAI is, in most cases, very simple. Your Leka Certiied Installer will provide you with the right application form. It’s quite short, so it doesn’t take long to fill in. It should be submitted to JHAI at least 2 weeks before the start date of your project. This will ensure that your project is registered with an initial seven days’ notice before work begins at your property.

To cover the building certificate, there is an administration fee of £225 plus VAT. Once this payment is received, a site surveyor will be assigned to your project and carry out an inspection of the new conservatory roof installation when it is complete.

If every requirement of the application form checklist is met, the surveyor will sign off your project. The completion certificate will then be sent to your Leka Certified Installer, who will forward it on to you.
