Pleated & Verticals, Weston Super Mare

Conservatory Type: White UPVC Victorian, floor to ceiling glass, 4m x 4.5m, Pilkington glass roof

The Problem

Mr & Mrs E. had all of the usual problems with a south facing conservatory: too hot in summer, too cold in winter, too much bright light causing eyestrain. The TV was impossible to watch.

The Solution

Although they initially requested roof pleated blinds & side verticals due to their large side windows, Mr & Mrs E were attracted to the plainer type roller blinds. They mistakenly believed that you could only have pleated blinds in a conservatory roof (a common misconception!) & were pleasantly surprised to be demonstrated the alternative roller product. Upon viewing the vastly superior Solar Energi thermal roof blind fabric, in a triangular model, they commented how neat it was.

Upon our assurances that any sagging would be minimal (as can be seen on the above picture of their installation), they went ahead with roof & side rollers. The existing 2 vertical blinds were kept for budgetary reasons, with a view to replacing those also, in the next few months.

“We particularly like the idea of less, rather than more blinds, & by doubling up, we achieved this” (not possible on such large windows with pleated blinds)”

What our customers say

Roof Roller Blinds Weston Super Mare

We had 5 quotes: 3 roof pleated & 2 roof roller. The pleated quotes varied from cheap & nasty to ludicrously high. I liked the pretty fabrics but thought they would not be very practical as we get lots of bugs in the conservatory & our children suffer from asthma, so keeping dust to a minimum is important to us. Also, it’s well known these days that asthma sufferers are sensitive to the droppings that house mites leave in the dust in furnishings. I don’t really know if dust mites would get into roof blinds, but I know loads of dead flies & fly “bits” get into the pleats so I wasn’t going to take that chance! The pleated salesmen tried to convince me that they are easily cleaned but that’s not the issue.

When I was offered rollers for the roof, this seemed to address the dust/ health issue, & given their superior thermal fabrics, my mind was made up. There was nothing to choose on price between Prestige & the other company, but your sales approach & those “mitred” cassettes were better. I am so impressed, thank you.

PS Thanks too, to David who showed us your roof roller & explained how they work in the local showroom in Weston. I also liked the wood venetians he had in there & had an excellent price off him for those.

Visited David’s showroom in Weston & was very impressed with his product range & advice. I opted for pleated blinds all round the sides of the conservatory & I’m really pleased with the result. Thank you for recommending him: it’s good to see you support the “Buy Local” campaign! When we need the roof doing, maybe next year, I’ll contact David as I know he fits your roof roller system, which looks very neat & tidy.

Liked your roof rollers with matching pelmet as soon as I saw it. Didn’t get any other quotes as David was so personable.
