What Are HUP! Extensions?

To begin with, let’s take a closer look at what HUP! Extensions are. Developed by Ultraframe, a leader in the conservatory market with over 30 years of experience, the HUP! building system comes pre-approved by building regulations and reimagines how new extensions are constructed.

These extensions use super energy-efficient Ultrapanels, assessed and approved by the BBA for use in UK housing products, making them five times more thermally effective than the average UK home. This innovative approach not only saves on heating bills but also offers unmatched design flexibility and speed of installation.

Speed and Efficiency

Rapid Construction with Hup! extensions

One of the standout benefits of HUP! Extensions is the rapid construction process. Traditional brick-built extensions can take months to complete, often plagued by weather delays and extensive site work.

In contrast, HUP! Extensions can be installed in a fraction of the time, typically within 3-4 days for a standard-sized project. This is five times faster than traditional methods, allowing you to enjoy your new living space much sooner.

Less Mess and Disruption

The off-site manufacturing of HUP! Extensions means less mess and disruption during the installation process. Traditional builds often require large teams and extensive on-site work, leading to more noise, dust, and inconvenience.

With HUP!, the streamlined process involves a small team, minimising site waste and ensuring a smoother, quicker experience for homeowners.

Energy Efficiency

Superior Thermal Performance

Energy efficiency is a crucial factor for any home improvement project. HUP! Extensions are designed with energy efficiency in mind. The Ultrapanels used provide exceptional insulation, keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This improved thermal performance means lower energy bills and a reduced carbon footprint.

Advanced Glazing Options

HUP! Extensions use special glazing materials that offer significant thermal efficiency. Options like double or triple glazing and low emissivity coatings help reflect heat back into the building during winter and keep it out during summer.

Compared to traditional brick walls, the lightweight panels in HUP! Extensions are far more efficient, making them the ideal choice for homeowners looking to reduce their energy consumption.

Design Flexibility

Tailored to Your Home

HUP! Extensions also offer design flexibility, allowing you to create a space that perfectly complements your home. Whether you’re replacing an old conservatory or adding a new extension, HUP! Extensions can be tailored to match your existing style. Compatible with all wall finishes, these extensions can blend seamlessly with your home’s exterior.

Versatile Roof Options

From solid roofs to glass or flat roofs, HUP! provide a variety of roofing options to suit your needs. The bespoke HUP! building system includes Ultrapanels, designed for high thermal performance and natural light, creating a bright, comfortable living space.

Whether you’re looking to add a new living room, a modern open-plan extension, or an adjoining room to your garden home, HUP! Extensions offer the versatility you need.

Compliance and Quality

Meeting Building Regulations

Ensuring your new extension meets building regulations is vital. HUP! Extensions are A-rated for energy efficiency and comply with all necessary building regulations. This means you can have peace of mind knowing your extension is built to the highest standards, with high-quality finishes inside and out.

HUP! Extensions from Ken Rhodes are constructed to the highest standards, ensuring exceptional quality and durability. Unlike traditional brick walls and conventional building methods that may suffer from weather delays and construction issues, HUP! Extensions are designed to be built in all weather conditions.

This means fewer interruptions and a reliable, long-lasting addition to your home. With efficient walls and a high-quality finish both inside and out, HUP! Extensions offer a superior alternative to traditional methods, ensuring your new extension meets all building regulations and stands the test of time.

HUP! Extensions are not only quicker to build but also more cost-effective.

Extensions a smart financial choice for homeowners.
