Replacement Conservatory Roof Birmingham
A replacement conservatory roof for your Birmingham home can turn what may be an unloved, disappointing space into a room that can be used for a wide range of purposes.
These roofs exist to fix an all-too-common problem, the problem of the conservatory that is too hot in the summer and too cold in winter. In Birmingham alone, many thousands of homeowners suffer with this problem.
The cause for this issue is all-too-obvious, most conservatories have a roof that is simply unfit for purpose, whether this is glass or polycarbonate. Of course, the homeowner did not know this when having the conservatory installed, only later did this problem become apparent.
Glass and polycarbonate cannot regulate temperature, they amplify the conditions outside, hence making the space inside hot in summer and cold in winter – just right only very occasionally.
A natural question is therefore why do conservatories tend to have glass or polycarb roofs when neither is fit for purpose.
The answer lies in regulations – until a decade ago, these were the only permissible material for a conservatory roof, this in part because they were light enough to fit on to a conservatory frame. The fact they couldn’t keep the room a pleasant temperature an oversight that was rarely mentioned by companies selling these units…
Regulations actually changed because of the Guardian Roof and work undertaken to prove the benefits of these replacement, tiled roofs. Guardian had to show not only that the roofs could be fitted on to existing conservatory frames, but that they were worth having, i.e. they solved the heating issues – after all, there would be no point in a homeowner spending money on a replacement roof that didn’t fix the issues of the existing one.
Regulations were changed to make lightweight, tiled roofs permissible and so in the last few years, many have chosen to make this change, transforming a flawed space into one of genuine use.
A number of replacement roof options are available, but Guardian Roofs, of which we are approved manufacturers and installers for Birmingham, stand apart for the following reasons.
Enjoy The Room All Year Round
This is the key benefit and why homeowners in Birmingham and beyond seek a replacement conservatory roof – it is to turn a flawed space into one of genuine use.
This benefit might be quick to write, but it cannot be understated. The conservatory becomes the room you always hoped it would be.
A huge range of uses
The newly improved conservatory can be put to a huge range of uses.
Some have it as a home office, others to get fit as they make it a home gym. It can be a cinema room, games room, arts and crafts room or extra lounge space.
Perhaps best of all, there is no real need to choose, once the room is upgraded you can use it for any purpose you see fit, and change use over time. Many have it as a playroom and then, as the children get older, maybe make it the home office.
Whereas a glass or polycarb conservatory will not blend in with the rest of the house, a replacement, tiled one will.
We have a range of styles such as Victorian, Edwardian, Lean-to and many more and these all available in a huge range of subtle shades. The conservatory will blend in with the rest of the house and look more akin to a sympathetic extension.
Internally, superb finishing touches such as spotlights and even a skylight complete the look.
Our roofs have full Local Area Building Control (LABC) approval.
You do not need planning permission to upgrade your conservatory roof and we ensure all paperwork is filed on your behalf and leave you with all relevant documentation, including details of the Guardian guarantee.
Making financial sense
Upgrading the roof is an improvement that makes financial sense both in the immediate term and then should you ever look to sell.
Each and every year, there will be energy bill savings, these will vary by property but on average they are found to come to around £200 per annum, this based on research by AECOM.
If you ever look to sell, the work will typically pay for itself and more besides, this because any would-be buyer is getting superb extra space rather than a flawed room they see only as a problem.
Our professional, polite installers will typically take just three days to remove and recycle the old roof and install the new.
We leave your property clean and tidy every day and aim to cause as little disruption as humanly possible. We know that people do not want builders in for longer than is necessary – even polite, professional builders.
We have a full brochure that is available for download, this packed full of key information.
