A solid conservatory roof will instantly boost your home’s thermal insulation and energy efficiency, helping you to reduce your energy bills and make your space a useable room all year round. It will also help to block out the cold during winter and the noise from the outside world, meaning you can relax in your conservatory – or as some people might call it ‘their escape’ – in peace.
Solid conservatory roofs are available in a range of colours and styles so you can find the perfect look to suit your home. You can also add Velux-style windows to your solid roof, bringing light into your conservatory and creating a stunning effect. This will help to brighten up your space, making it more functional and creating a more comfortable space for you and your family to enjoy.
It is essential that you take time to research the different companies you are considering for your new conservatory roof, looking at their customer reviews on Trustpilot and reading their online brochures. This will give you an idea of the level of quality you can expect from a company. It is a good idea to compare the quotes you receive from several different installers, as they may offer differing levels of service.
We recommend that you ask your installer to complete a full survey on your conservatory, checking the frame, base and brickwork to ensure they can support the weight of a new roof. They should also check that your current windows and doors can be retained. If they cannot, you may want to consider replacing them with uPVC or composite options which are designed to be structurally sound under the weight of a solid roof.
If you have existing glazed panels, your installer should be able to remove them without damaging the rest of the structure, leaving it ready for the installation of your new roof. You will need to clear the area of furniture and blinds before the installer arrives, so that they can sheet off the area to protect it while they work. You may need to cover any items in the conservatory with tarpaulin or covers during this period, but the end results will far outweigh this minor inconvenience.
Once the installation is complete, your new conservatory will be watertight and a lot more cosy. You can then enjoy your new living space as it is meant to be used, a place to relax and unwind. You might even decide to use it as a dining or sitting room, converting it into a truly multi-functional part of your home.
If you choose a Livinroof or Ultraroof, both of which are fully compliant with Building Regulations Part L, you can enjoy an incredible thermal performance. This will help to keep your conservatory warmer in winter, reducing your energy bills and boosting the value of your property. It will also help to block out the harsh UV rays that can cause damage to your furniture and carpets, as well as blocking out unwanted noise.
