Park home renovation: How Prestige Developments transformed a home
The story of how the appearance of one park home was totally changed – and also extended, with the addition of a ‘garden room’.
Renovation, transformation, refurbishment – all words to describe the opportunity to update your park home.
Just like any other type of home, after a few years, projects spring up which lead owners to seek out ways of making changes.
Prestige Developments is a specialist in this field. The company has renovated, refurbished and transformed the homes of over 10,000 satisfied customers.
Customers like Kym, whose park home, pictured here, is at Beacon Village, Skegness. She’d bought a home that needed some work, then called in Prestige Developments to discuss a project of extensive changes.
Choosing the look
First step: she requested a Customer Pack from Prestige Developments. Then the process began, with getting advice from the experts at Prestige Developments on how she wanted her home to look and on the products that would be fitted to achieve her vision of the transformation.
Kym project-managed from the start; she had a clear idea of how she wanted her home to look.
So, from the ground upwards – the project began with a full service to the chassis, and the installation of load-bearing tripod jacks to ensure that the home would cope with any additional weight that the transformation would involve.
Removing the cladding
Prestige Developments then removed all the external ply and aluminium cladding and added a complete additional timber frame to the existing studwork. This guaranteed the strength of the building.
Celotex insulation was installed to achieve thermal values in line with the latest BS 3632 requirements. A Tyvek breather membrane was added prior to the Multi-Pro XS magnesium silicate wall boarding and exterior render coating.
New windows and doors were installed. These are manufactured by sister company Prestige Plastics.
The design complimented Kym’s interior design, allowing plenty of light to enter the home. New composite cladding was added to the huge lounge window.
Adding the garden room
Now came the most eye-catching element of the transformation – the addition of a ‘garden room’, using a heavily insulated Metrotile Roof, designed to keep the room cool in summer and warm in winter.
Then a Metrotile roof was added to the whole property, with UPVC vented soffits, feature overhangs, apex valleys and UPVC fascias and guttering.
Finally, Kym got a masonry coating for the original brick skirt, following the line of the new extension and around the steps. The interior was transformed, too.
Kym then turned attention to landscaping, fencing and patios.
She was delighted with the result – and Prestige Developments saw the project as a showcase for the company’s skills that also gave the home at least another 30 years of very low maintenance and running costs.
