Emma explains: “The skilled team at Whalley Home Improvements are all extremely experienced and familiar with products manufactured by the likes of Ultraframe and Rockdoor.”
Over the past few months, Whalley Home Improvements have been working on a variety of projects throughout the region including a replacement roof on a conservatory at a detached property in Wilpshire. Homeowner Deborah, explains: “The conservatory was around 17 years old and I really wanted to be able to use it all year round, but the old-fashioned polycarbonate roof made it cold in winter and too warm in summer.
“Whalley Home Improvements replaced it with a tiled roof with two full glass panels to make it light and airy. I also had the double doors, leading into the conservatory, removed to make it open plan. I was worried it wasn’t going to be warm enough but it’s absolutely perfect! It has transformed the conservatory, which I now use all the time!
“Whalley Home Improvements were brilliant. They were really professional in their communication and they do what they say they are going to do. They did a great job!”
Emma adds: “Deborah’s dilemma was fairly typical. Many homeowners find that the temperature varies too much with the old-style polycarbonate roof – the Ultraframe roof system provides a perfect solution.”
From initial contact to final fitting, the experienced, knowledgeable team makes sure all projects are finished to the highest of standards and that customers are fully satisfied.
“It’s absolutely perfect. It has transformed the conservatory, which I now use all the time!”
At the start of each project Whalley Home Improvements’ Bev Lea ensures all the work is carried out to plan, commissioning in-house technical surveyors Brian Clews and Mike Taylor, who have many years’ experience in the trade. Once the order is placed Bev will organise a fit date and select individual tradesmen or specific teams to work on the project.
Emma concludes: “We know how important it is to meticulously plan every project so that everything runs smoothly. Communication between us and the customer is also key and because we have such an experienced team working with trusted, quality manufacturers, we aim to deliver each project on time and within budget.”
