Solid conservatory roof panels provide a stylish way to transform your glazed extension. A high quality solid conservatory roof replacement will not only bring new life to your space, it can also help you save money on your heating bills and even generate energy that you can sell back to the grid!
The Livinroof and Ultraroof solid roof systems enable homeowners to enjoy a bespoke glass / conservatory hybrid that can be configured as you wish, allowing you to flood your room with natural light. With both systems, you can insert triangular or rectangular glass panels at your preferred points in the roof, helping you to focus the light as needed and create a stunning internal design.
Both systems are available in a wide range of colours and finishes, meaning you can enhance the look of your glass extension with an aesthetic that suits your property. This is especially important, as your glazed extension will often be visible from the street and your house, making it important to ensure that your bespoke conservatory roof complements the rest of your home.
A solid conservatory roof will not only give your glazed extension a unique and high-end look, it will also improve the security of your home. Many older glazed conservatory roofs are easy to lever off, providing criminals with access to your home and the contents within. A solid roof will not only be much more secure, it will also provide a much better level of heat insulation.
Replacing your old polycarbonate or glass conservatory roof with a brand-new, insulated tiled conservatory roof will instantly make your glazed extension more aesthetically appealing, while improving the thermal efficiency of your living space. Unlike polycarbonate, which can discolour over time, a tiled roof will remain beautiful for years to come. In fact, you can expect a tiled roof to last at least 50 years.
When choosing a company to supply and fit your new solid conservatory roof, you need to be sure that they are properly qualified. Check for LABC or BBA accreditation, as well as CERTASS membership. CERTASS is the industry body that oversees and certifies glaziers, as well as monitoring their work to ensure it meets building regulations and guarantees are honoured.
It’s important to note that your existing conservatory was built with a glass or polycarbonate roof in mind, so if you replace it with a solid roof it will require structural improvements to support the additional weight. This can include a new frame, re-inforcement of the existing walls and possibly even a new base. Ensure that you speak to your installer to understand the full extent of what will be involved before beginning any works. This will also help you to budget for the project. If you are replacing an existing conservatory roof, it is worth contacting your local council to check whether planning permission will be required. If it is, then you will need to submit a planning application before any work can begin.
