Wetheralds have been providing building services to homeowners and businesses for over 10 years, and we have an excellent reputation for delivering quality and service to all of our customers at a competitive price.
In 2008 Wetheralds Roof Systems was formed in response to a growing demand from our customers to convert their existing conservatory roof into a lightweight tiled roof. We developed a replacement conservatory roof system, all-wether®, to ensure that Wetheralds would not only continue to provide the same high levels of quality and service but would also ensure customers would combat many of the problems associated with their existing conservatory.
An appraisal by LABC (Local Authority Building Control) conducted throughout the UK, revealed that there were possibly thousands of installations demonstrating a disregard or failed interpretation of the requirements for Compliance Certificates and very few had been issued.
Wetheralds recognised that there was a need to introduce a system that covered every aspect of construction together with checking procedures which would receive full recognition and compliance with the LABC.
It transpired that there were possibly thousands of installations carried out nationally albeit varying considerably to the Wetheralds product, where certificates had not been obtained. Some systems exist on the market, which are very heavy by comparison and as such trial holes need to be conducted to ascertain that both the foundations and the side frames are sufficient to withstand the increased load. Other systems also do not have the necessary insulation to comply with the "U" (thermal efficiency value) requirement to meet Building Control Standards. Prospective customers are totally unaware of these issues.
A major investment was made engaging structural engineers to design a system that fully complied with the exacting standards of the LABC. The combination of both the investment and disciplines adopted resulted in Wetheralds becoming a Registered Partner of the LABC. Each individual project is supported by the structural engineers and is also inspected on site by the LABC during construction.
Supported with a 40 year manufactures guarantee on roof tiles.
There is also a Registered Detail approval for every type of conservatory.
