Replacement Conservatory Roof Derby

A replacement conservatory roof for your Derby home is a relatively quick change that can make a profound difference – turning a flawed space into a room you can be proud of.

It is a sad fact that most conservatories are unfit for purpose; sold as a room in which to relax and unwind, they became anything but that. Many became a cause of stress rather than a place in which to relax and destress.

Guardian Roofs Nationwide Derby

The problems all stem from the roof. The vast majority of conservatories in Derby and beyond have either a glass or polycarbonate roof, essentially a pointless choice with neither fit for purpose.

Neither option can regulate temperature and so the conservatory becomes too hot in summer and too cold in winter, hardly ever just right.

Until around a decade ago, these were the only two options, but regulatory change – which Guardian helped to create – altered this so that replacement, lightweight tiled replacement conservatory roofs became permissible.

This one change made conservatories a room worth having, turning them into what are effectively sympathetic extensions, just without the large price tag that would usually come with.

The Guardian Replacement Roof

While there are a number of replacement conservatory roof options that exists in Derby, it is worth noting that the Guardian Warm Roof has a number of advantages. This form of roof has full Local Area Building Control (LABC) approval, indeed it is Guardian who worked to help change regulations, proving that a replacement roof was worth having.

Regulators had to be satisfied of two things – that the roofs could be fitted as a replacement to existing conservatory frames without issue and they had to be worth installing, after all these is evidently no point paying to replace one flawed roof with another that does not rectify the issues.

At Guardian Roofs Nationwide, we are proud to be approved manufacturers and installers of the Guardian Roof, we have worked with homeowners throughout the midlands, including Derby to help them transform their conservatory.

The change is a simple one in some ways, typically taking just three days, and yet it is a change with a range of benefits.

Benefits of Replacement Conservatory Roof

A Great Room All Year Round

We will list further benefits below, but this obviously the main one – the replacement roof instantly solves the problem inherent in most conservatories and the room instead becomes a great space all year round.

From that first time you step in it post change, you will feel a sense of satisfaction. Finally, we can use it and enjoy it – we can even have friends round and not pretend it’s off limits!

The conservatory becomes just another room – which we mean in the best way possible. It isn’t a room to be avoided, or only used occasionally. It can be used any time of day, any day of the year.

A Range of Uses

Having a room that is useable all year round naturally means it can have almost any use.

It can be a study or a home office, others have it as a playroom. We have seen people use their conservatory as a room for hobbies, or arts and crafts. Some get fit in a home gym, others do the opposite – snacking on popcorn in a home cinema.

There is no need to decide either, you can always change use as needs change. Often it is a room for the kids to play in, but then later becomes that home office or second lounge area.

Many, just have it as somewhere they go to with a glass of wine and good book to hand.

Financial Benefits

There is of course a cost to having a replacement roof installed – we are happy to provide an obligation-free quote.

The work does have two key financial benefits.

Firstly, there will be energy bill savings to be enjoyed each and every year, these caused by the far greater thermo efficiency that will be apparent post-change. Our roofs deliver a U-value of 0.18, this figure unsurpassed by any rival product.

In real terms, this means energy bill savings of £200 per annum on an ‘average’ property’, this based on independent research by AECOM.

Perhaps better still, the work typically pays for itself and more besides through increased property value. Any would-be buyer is getting a room that is more akin to a superb extension than a flawed conservatory. This is useable space they can enjoy as they see fit, and so it is a change that they are willing to pay that bit extra for,

It is always prudent to check with a local Derby estate agent, but in most cases, the work will make sound financial sense.

Minimal Upheaval

It typically takes our team of skilled installers just three days to remove and recycle the old roof and install the new one.

We are always polite, courteous and professional and leave your home clean and tidy each evening. We can’t promise that you won’t notice we are there, but we will cause as little disruption to your routine as is humanly possible.

Peace of Mind

The Guardian Roof has full regulatory approval including Local Area Building Control (LABC).

Our roofs come with a lengthy guarantee and all paperwork and certification is provided – this ensuring that should you ever look to sell, you have everything at hand to pass to the new owner.

A Stylish Upgrade

Conservatory roofs made of glass or polycarb don’t blend in with the rest of the property. Our tiled roofs change that,

The Guardian replacement roof is available in a range of styles and subtle colours, ensuring that whatever the style of your Derby home, the conservatory roof will now blend in sympathetically. This is another way in which the upgrade makes the conservatory feel much more like a sympathetic extension.

Our roofs are available in styles including Victorian, Edwardian, Lean-to, Edwardian, P-shaped and more. The range of subtle colour shades runs to the thousands; we can also help to ensure the closest possible match ios made to the rest of the property.

Internally, the room will remain light and airy thanks to stylish finishes touches such as sky lights, or spot lights – all options at your discretion, with examples available in the informational brochure (link included below).

About Derby

First settled by the Romans, Derby has grown to be a major UK city with a population of around 250,000.

Modern day Derby is home to advanced transport manufacturing, including being the world’s second-largest aero-machine manufacturer. Rolls Royce are among those to have major facilities in Derby.

Its modern status is a far cry from its roots as Dervenito, the site of an old Roman fort.

The name then chagned through the ages, the Viking name Djura-by a clear earlier stage of the city’s current name.

Derby grew in prominence during the Industrial Revolution and in 171 it became the site of the first water-powered silk mill in Britain.

More recently, Derby has had many notable residents, these including Brian Clough who managed Derby County to becoming First Divsion (as was ) champions,

Others to have lived in Derby are Graham Coxon, Florence Nightingale and Sir Henry Royce.
