The roof is an important part of your conservatory and should be treated as a key consideration when looking at its overall design. It is also a key factor in how it will feel and function. If it is not of a high standard, the room can be too cold in winter and unusable in summer.
Fortunately, changes in Building Regulations and Planning Permission have seen a variety of modern designs and materials introduced that can solve these issues. A solid replacement roof for your conservatory can transform the way it looks and feels.
Glass – Can Be Glare-Free
One of the biggest benefits of replacing your conservatory roof with glass is that it can be glazed to give you a bright, light room all year round. There are many different types of glass available including coloured varieties which can help to block out glare during the summer.
Polycarbonate – Can Be Lightweight
Conservatories with polycarbonate roofs are becoming increasingly popular, thanks to their lightweight construction. They can be made to match the rest of the house and are much easier to install than traditional glass systems. They can also help to improve your home’s energy efficiency and reduce your heating bills.
Tiled – Can Be Coloured
There are a number of tiled replacement conservatory roofs that you can choose from, depending on your budget and requirements. These roofs can be glazed or infilled, and come in a variety of shapes and styles. They can even be shaped into triangles and sunbursts to create a unique look.
Hybrid – Can Be a Tiled or Glazed Panel Roof
A hybrid replacement roof is the latest innovation in solid conservatory roofing. It is a modern lightweight tiled system which can be made to match the rest of your property, and can include glazed panels or Velux windows. Its internal ceiling pelmet can be fully insulated, allowing you to focus the light where it’s needed and increase your thermal performance.
Whether you decide on a tiled or glazed roof, a new modern conservatory can be an ideal addition to your home, bringing you more space for all of life’s activities. The new system will provide you with a bright and comfortable living area that can be used all year round, as well as adding valuable value to your property.
The cost of a conservatory roof replacement depends on the size of the structure and the style of glazing chosen. The price can range from PS2,500 for a small Gable roof to PS5,800 for a modern glass replacement system.
When a conservatory is old and poorly constructed, the installation of a new roof may not be worth the investment. This could be due to a cheap uPVC frame or rotten timber frames. It could also be that the windows are now past their best, meaning a complete overhaul would be a more sensible solution.
If you do decide to replace your existing conservatory roof, make sure you speak to an expert about the design and materials you can use. They will help you to select the most appropriate options for your needs and budget, and liaise with your local authority or other relevant body to ensure you meet the necessary Building Regulations. It is also advisable to get a few quotes, as prices can vary based on the company and the features you want.
