Extend your home with an orangery in Derby

The onset of the warmer weather means that it’s the perfect time to extend your home. We’ve found that the most popular home improvement for Derby homes is an orangery.

Orangeries were once thought of as traditional conservatories, however, to cater for the need for modern extensions, we can create contemporary orangeries, featuring large windows, Skypod roof lanterns and a brick wall.

More and more homeowners are choosing orangeries for the modern style, extra sunlight and added comfort they offer, as well as to create extra space.

Derby roofline

Spring clean your roofline

Is your timber roofline looking worn-out and old? If so, it’s probably time to upgrade your fascias, soffits and guttering.

Your home will benefit from new PVCu roofline if you can see any peeling, flaking, cracking paint, rotting or warping, water staining on the boards or down the wall, or visibly ragged roof felt.

Act fast and you can protect your roof structures for years to come, all the while improving the look of your home with a replacement roofline.

Roofline adds the finishing touches to your home, and can easily be the difference between a well-kept home that adds kerb appeal and a home that is in desperate need of care and attention.

Rooflines consist of fascias, soffits and guttering, and Trade Windows Derby roofline offers superb protection from the wind and rain over time.

Our roofline system is an effective replacement of timber roofline as it offers 21st century benefits of using modern materials, all the while replicating the existing style of your current roofline.
