    Hi Everyone
    I wonder if anyone would be able to advise me?

    I want to insulate and clad my conservatory roof myself, I have looked at all these company’s that do this and I feel it’s well within my limits as a DIY person.

    But my question is this.

    Are there any legal/council/Bulding regulations that I should be aware of, that’s that part that I really struggle with.

    If there isn’t anything stopping me I would have a very happy wife


  2. Go ahead - fill yer boots.

    There's even a thread on here on how to go about it...

    ive read the thread, but can you put a multi stove through the cladding and foil etc through carbonate roof
  4. Yes, I guess - provided you fit an appropriate baffle plate that keeps the insulated twin-walled flue away from combustible surfaces.

    cheers, was thinking sealing foil around flue but would that not be dangerous ,ifso you would be jeopardising the seal
    i would put baffle plate around cladding
    the multi burner would be placed 2.5 m away from main house at window ,unless your allowed to go through dwarf wall with flue ,horizontal, then vertical outside

    As for permissions, in some cases your conservatory may have to be 70% translucent.(70% area)

    Not seen that one in any planning rules before! My conservatory is transparent glass as opposed to translucent polycarbonate. Will I have to get the dog to smear more of the windows with his nose to make it legal?

    That'll be a 'minimum' as in allowing light, but not necessarily see-through!

  10. I doubt there are regs that would prevent anyone from adding insulation to their connie, but there sure ARE regs prohibiting anyone installing a solid fuel stove without it being passed by BC. Or it being done by a HETAS cove.

    Some very bad cases of death could ensue.
