Mr and mrs byatt – a victorian  STYLE CONSERVATORY Roof

Why a New Conservatory Roof?

Pam and Roger Byatt are a retired professional couple with many hobbies which they enjoy outdoors including; golf, bowling, walking and they love to enjoy their garden “we have a great view over fields, it’s lovely to sit and watch the horses come to our fence!”

Our conservatory was built at the beginning of the 1990’s and we have enjoyed it for many years with our friends and family.  However, it was always very warm in the summer and cold in the winter, this spoilt our enjoyment of the space as an extra room in the house as we weren’t always able to use it.  We have mainly used the conservatory as a family room and dining room, and now it’s also a place to simply relax at any time of year and enjoy the view.

We were also looking to enjoy using the room more all year round without suffering from the extremes of hot and cold.

We took the decision to look for a new roof for the conservatory as the existing roof was very old, and being of a polycarbonate construction we were concerned how much longer it would hold out.


The Decision to Choose Wetheralds

We decided not to fix the old roof or replace like for like but to see 3 companies that would provide an insulated/tiled roof in order to make a fair comparison.

The three main reasons we chose a Wetheralds Roof over the competition were;

  1. because of the regional surveyor that came to visit,  on the two occasions that the surveyor visited, we were impressed by how easily he could answer all of our questions, the quality of the information and drawings he supplied far exceeded those given by any of the other companies quoting.
  2. the knowledge, enthusiasm and experience of the team at Wetheralds.
  3. the price was competitive.

From the information we were provided we felt confident that converting our existing conservatory roof to an Wetheralds Tiled Conservatory Roof would be good value for money.


Customising Our Replacement Conservatory Roof

We were delighted with the range of tiles and colours on offer, as it enabled us to match those used on the rest of the house to ensure our new room looked like an existing part of the house from both inside and outside.

As the roof was built we could see the quality of the construction materials step by step. The overall attention to detail and finish is excellent, we couldn’t have hoped for a better result.


The Build

“The fitting team were brilliant. Not only were they polite and very hard working but their attention to detail and experience of resolving problems (that inevitably arise!) was superb. They were also very clean and tidy throughout the time they were working.

The build took just a few days days to complete from start to finish; we were particularly impressed by this as other companies were quoting 10-14 days.  The materials and everything else they used on site arrived on Monday and the skip was removed the same week!

We were absolutely delighted when we saw the finished roof; it has been much admired by friends and neighbours. A few of whom are extremely interested in converting their conservatory roofs and followed closely the progress of the team, so we are certainly recommending our Wetheralds
roof without reservation.

We still use our conservatory as a family/dining room, only now it is much more comfortable and we now call it the Garden Room! “The Wetheralds roof has far exceeded all our expectations from start to finish. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the materials used and the efficiency of the installation team. We haven’t looked back since having our new roof installed.”
